I'm sorry for not writing about the Broker's Tour in Harwich lately. I attended a closing last Tuesday and today it is my turn to man the front desk at the office, so I haven't been able to attend.
While checking out the latest offerings on the Multiple Listing Service, I found an unusual piece of Cape Cod land for sale in Falmouth that I thought you would find interesting.
Looks pretty good, but nothing extraordinary, right? Let's widen out.
See that asphalt behind the lot and neighboring homes? That's no highway. It's a landing strip for private planes.
Here is an ariel photo from the Falmouth Airpark website. You can walk out your back door, hop in your plane and be on Martha's Vineyard faster than others can figure out the ferry schedule.
The Falmouth Airpark is privately owned by the Homeowner's Association and features a 2,298' long by 40' wide landing strip for single engine planes. Homeowners typically build small hangars rather than garages to house their planes, however hangar space is available for rent at $350 to $400 per month if preferred. Association fees cover the maintenance costs.
The lot for sale at 30 Quimby Lane, E. Falmouth is .53 acres and is listed at $165,000.
The Falmouth Airpark is one of eight airports on Cape Cod and the Islands. Primary airports include Barnstable Municipal, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket and Provincetown. Smaller aviation facilities exist with Cape Cod Airport in Marstons Mills, Chatham Municipal Airport, Falmouth Airpark and Katama Airpark on the Vineyard. The Otis Air National Guard base is located in Mashpee as well.
Next week I hope to join the Broker's Tour again. I'll report what I find.
