I showed a beautiful home in Yarmouth Port yesterday, in the Pheasant Cove neighborhood near Cape Cod Bay.
With so much of my business concentrated near Nantucket Sound and Harwich, Chatham and Dennis, it was a pleasure to poke around the bay side.
My buyers for this property are out of town. Like many people who live several hours off Cape, there is limited opportunity to run around and look at houses, so I run around for them with my video camera.
Here is a 360 degree panorama of Gray's Beach in Yarmouth Port, the one saltwater beach in that village. The couple seen in the beginning of the video were friendly and as warm to a stranger as the bright, 70 degree day.
Yarmouth Port Realtor and Pheasant Cove resident Tom Manning directed me to a dead-end street in the neighborhood where he had cut a path through the underbrush to access a view of the enormous marsh around Bass Cove River. Tom wanted to make sure my buyers were aware of this unusual feature nearby. Consider it done Tom.
It is beautiful, as Tom promised, so unique and wonderfully hidden from the world.
To hear Tom talk up the area you would think there is no better place in the world. And for him, there might not be. That's how it is on the Cape. Every town, every area has it's rabid fans.
Thanks to Tom Manning I discovered a wonderful secret in Yarmouth Port yesterday; a hidden little path cut and named by a neighbor for the neighbors.
I intend to go back and next time, I'll bring some wine.
