Point o’ View
An idyllic spot on the banks of Osterville’s West Bay—with views of rose-gold sunsets across the water and of boats as they sail by—lends this delightful five-bedroom getaway its affectionate name, Point o’ View.
Tucked into the trees, it combines impeccable construction with a warm, inviting ambience perfect for both relaxed private living and festive entertaining for a crowd.
A traditional brick and clapboard façade with dentil moldings and dormer windows hints at the traditional style of the 7,499-square-foot interiors, which include a cheerful living room filled with light from windows and French doors, a convivial formal dining room, and a relaxing family room, many with coffered ceilings, stately paneling, honey-hued hardwood floors, and doors and wood-framed windows from British Columbia.
Cooks will appreciate the spacious kitchen, which features stainless-steel appliances; its granite- and butcher-block-topped island can seat four.
Fitting for an estate in this storied coastal locale, the home also includes a handsome study or den with a board-and-batten tray ceiling recalling a ship cabin.
A dramatic window wall and a balcony in the master suite are designed for appreciation of glorious water vistas.
Many of the living and entertaining spaces enjoy views of the .71-acre grounds, which—with its generous slate terrace and refreshing swimming pool—bring to mind a serene resort in some faraway locale.
Beyond the colorful roses, manicured hedges, verdant lawn, and stately trees, the property gives way to a private sandy beach, a 38-foot deepwater dock, and a boathouse.
Much like the allure of life lived on the water in Cape Cod, this classic home will endure for generations to come.
