The jewel of Nauset Heights is available for the first time in generations. Skunks Bluff is an elevated, verdant plateau overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and home to one of the finest waterfront compounds on Cape Cod. Located in the quintessentially New England Coastal village of East Orleans it offers unparallelled, sweeping salt water views and a mosaic of natural beauty that will take your breath away. These are the vistas that inspired Beston and Thoreau to pen their masterpieces. See whales breach offshore and ospreys circle overhead from the expansive lawn of the main house, or walk down your private stairway to the Cape Cod National Seashore to harvest clams, fish for stripers or swim in the protected inlet. Meander over the dunes or drive out on the residents' side to pristine Nauset Beach, spanning nine miles and three towns from The Coast Guard Station in Eastham to the dune shacks of Chatham.The main residence is spacious and airy with a casual, welcoming ambience. Its four bedrooms, five baths and multiple gathering spaces comprise four levels. Indoor and outdoor spaces blend easily together and virtually every window showcases a distinctly captivating view. The cathedral great room features walls of glass and a wood burning fireplace. The dining area is large enough to accommodate a dozen guests. The three bedroom, two bath year-round guest house has a charming rusticity with its exposed beams and rough sawn accents. It evokes images of windswept winter evenings or kids gathering for outdoor showers after a long day of croquet, tag or firefly catching. It enjoys excellent separation from the main house as well as a beautifully planted, private rear yard and ocean views. The grounds are truly estate-like, a lovingly curated blend of native flora and huge swaths of thick lawn interspersed with gardens and benches from which to decompress or stargaze. Wildlife abounds. Acquaint yourself with the various denizens of the National Seashore who visit The Bluff or immerse yourself in some of the world's finest birding-- all to the ceaseless, restorative rhythm of the sea. Skunks Bluff is an heirloom property with few equals and limitless potential to craft your family legacy.
