Captain John Hughes Home Cape Cod

Historic District, 31 Shore Rd, Provincetown, MA 02657, USA
$875,000

Description

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to own a piece of Truro and Provincetown history! This is just the third time in nearly 300 years that the storied Captain John Hughes home has been available for sale. Home to sea captains, civil war soldiers, and the founder of the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, this home has sheltered generations of Cape Codders and hosted the most famous of Provincetown artists.

Situated on over an acre in bucolic North Truro, this warm and welcoming home and recently renovated self contained guest cottage combine iconic cape cod architecture with the unique needs of our current time. The main is house is much like it has been for generations. Glowing wide plank floors lovingly restored by the current owner flow throughout, reflecting both the sun poring through restored original 9 over 6 windows and the roaring fire in the the living room fireplace, one of 3 in the house.

A large yet welcoming dining room is ready for meals large and small thanks to the adjacent butler’s pantry and updated country kitchen. And from late spring to fall you will be hard pressed to ever leave the enclosed 3 season sunroom, with its walls of french doors and exposed beams. The charming first floor bedroom with original fireplace and full bath complete this floor and make for perfect one floor living.

Upstairs are 3 more bedrooms including one with a built in bunk irresistible to children and a bath with antique claw foot tub. The 2nd floor is on its own heating zone and can be conveniently closed off for winter or opened for guests.  A large bluestone patio, fenced in yard, and storage space complete the house.

Finally there is the fully renovated and self contained year round guest cottage complete with pine floors, cathedral ceilings, sky lights, kitchenette, laundry, and AC, plus a lovely bluestone patio.

Both the house and cottage have a very strong rental history of over $50K per year if the next owner should chose to rent either or both.  While worlds away in feeling, both Provincetown and Wellfleet are 10 minutes away by car, Cold Storage Beach is a 15 minute walk, and Truro Vineyards is just down the street.
