If you haven't found a home with the right combination of features or have made 'if only' statements, such as: ''If only I could move house x to the location of property y'', then 15 Bridge Pond Dr is for you. Finally, the right house, in the right location, at the right price...A parade of bricks across a verdant lawn makes a lovely approach to this custom-built 3BR/2BA Cape just 1/4 mile Bayside. Inside, vaulted ceilings suggest infinite space with geometric glass & red oak floors, while fine wood beams add visual interest & scale. The color temperature of this main living area is warm with an elegant, somewhat contemporary vibe yet always generous & inviting with plenty of natural light--you'd be equally comfortable lounging in swim trunks or inviting the in-laws to dinner. A wood-burning stove provides point-of-focus coziness in cooler months, with natural gas as main heat source & cooling via ductless A/C. The kitchen is an updated, pleasant space w/granite counters, gas range, cherry cabinetry & bar stools for casual dining. A more formal dining area lies adjacent & yields to a brilliant south-facing glassed sunporch overlooking an idyllic yet easy-to-maintain irrigated backyard that is awash in spring colors--heather, myrtle, azalea, hosta, forsythia, andromeda & the ubiquitous rhododendrons, to name a few. A motorized awning provides solar protection while relaxing deckside. The backyard is further distinguished by a convenient utility shed & 'must-have' outside shower. Back in, the 1st floor is completed with a tiled full-sized bath & flanked by 2 carpeted auxiliary bedrooms w/built-ins. A spacious Master w/en suite bath & plenty of closet space exists upstairs & is large enough for additional lounging. A semi-finished basement includes a convenient, oversized 1-car garage w/opener, a great office/media room & separate utility room with Weil-McLain furnace. Andersen quality windows & sliders are used throughout this home...I mentioned the great location. One of the keys to Eastham's timeless appeal lies in celebrating its past. 'Target View Beach Assoc' (TVBA), of which this property belongs, is a nod to the SS James Longstreet 'target ship' that graced our horizon starting in the 1940's. TVBA stands out amongst Eastham's seaside communities by offering its residents not only beach access, but beach usage rights as well. In a bit of cruel irony some homeowners in other communities have found that while they may have the right to access the beach, they have no legal provision to use it once there. Nothing spoils a day at the beach or creates 'towel anxiety' like an angry homeowner rushing up & down the shore drawing lines in the sand, dubiously claiming to "own" the beach. This kind of silliness doesn't happen in TVBA, and buyers should know the difference...Those looking for a walk in the woods will appreciate the Glacial Pond Trail System, just across the street, that winds extensively through a mix of kettle ponds & pine/oak woodlands. Great Pond, a mere 800ft way, is well-named...From its abundant amenities & beautiful, easy-to-maintain grounds, to its fabulous location, 15 Bridge Pond Dr has something for everyone. Hope you will accept my invitation to view this lovely home in person--but don't hesitate, lest those 'if only' statements return, as in, "if only we hadn't waited so long".
