Thanksgiving Musings

The Halloween hoopla has died down and we are entering the real quiet time on the Outer Cape.  The air is brisk, there are leaves everywhere and autumn’s golden light is starting to take on the pale lemon hue of early winter.  In the woods, the leafless trees give a whole new meaning to “fifty shades of gray.”  Nonetheless, there is life stirring all around.  There was a great article in Boston Globe on Sunday November 16 on the Outer Cape in Winter.  It is chock full of ideas on what to do and doesn’t EVEN mention pre holiday and close out sales during Holly Folly in Provincetown, on going lectures and events at Preservation Hall in Wellfleet, including a winter farmers market, and a whole series of events for adults and kids at the Truro Public Library.  Though, Ptown is great anytime of year, the annual lighting of the Pilgrim Monument (this year on November 26 from 5-7) gets the holiday season off to a very festive start.  In fact, lots of holiday visitors make it a point of coming to the Outer Cape for special holiday times AFTER pursuing more traditional holiday events wherever they live.

Of course, this is a real estate blog, so we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention thatn ne of 3Harbors’ new listings in Truro will be featured on Sunday November 22 in the Cape Cod Times real estate section.  This home, which is in North Truro and comes with deeded beach rights, has a late- Mad Man era vibe with great entertaining spaces and two different levels which offer separate living areas for extended families or a group of good friends.  It is located at 28 Bayberry and we’d love to show it to you.

On the Cusp of November

Halloween is pretty much the last big weekend before the winter here on the Outer Cape.  It’s always a fun time, with a variety of activities, from kids going house-to-house in Truro and Wellfleet to parties and shows in Provincetown.  This time of year also brings the closing of seasonal condos in Truro.  There is tremendous buzz right now about the iconic Days Cottages, which recently were listed for sale as condos by none other than 3Harbors Realty.  Eight of twenty cottages have already been spoken for as of this writing.  We are having a pop-up Open House Saturday November 1 from 1 – 3 pm`.  Please stop by to see these most-photographed of Truro cottages before they are all closed up at the end of next week!

Blog Blurbs for Early Autumn

Welcome to 3Harbors Realty’s new blog snippets– snapshots of interesting happenings in and around our three harbors offices.  One of the Outer Cape’s most popular events is the Wellfleet Oyster Fest, two days of food, music and fun, October 17-18.  Downtown Wellfleet is transformed into one huge street party, with music, fun and food.  The oyster shucking contest is almost as world famous as the oysters themselves.  While at Oyster Fest, stroll over to 70 Commercial Street where 3Harbors has a lovely year-round condo for sale– look for the brochure box in front of the property.

A recent article in the New York Times Home and Garden section spotlighted the gents who purchased the former Martin House Restaurant building and restored it as a private home.  The article does a great job of showing how the old and the new have blended so vibrantly in Ptown.  Apparently, the old Martin House is haunted, perhaps by ghosts of dinners past…. Not too far from the the former Martin House, you can stop by 136 Commercial (our Ptown office) to see about finding your own special place in Ptown.

It’s mushroom season in Truro, the smallest and most agricultural of the towns on the Cape.  This time of year it isn’t unusual to see folks walking the local byways, especially in the Cape Cod National Seashore, bags in hand, looking for edible species of mushrooms which sprout on the Outer Cape during October.  Yet one more unusual activity which makes our area so interesting– even when it isn’t summertime.  Abutting the Seashore in Truro is a gorgeous home currently on the market featuring  interiors by Christina Oliver, ASID.  This large residence has an amazing gourmet kitchen– perfect for making a risotto with the mushrooms just picked nearby.

Thanks for reading.  See you next time!
