Tucked away on Town Cove in Eastham, this waterfront home features a sock and great views.

EASTHAM — First, we must sing the praises of Town Cove. It’s one of the most pleasant salt waterways on Cape Cod and offers boaters incredible opportunities for adventure. You can explore Nauset Marsh or find your own sandy paradise along big Atlantic-facing beaches. Living on the water, especially saltwater, is right up there on the bucket list for many folks on the Cape.

Opportunities for owning a waterfront property on Town Cove are rare. And often, the price of admission can be a bit staggering. But along comes this gem on Cedar Lane in Eastham. While it might require a little tender loving care, the home, priced at $1,500,000, offers a sweet perch on the cove with a deep-water dock.

“The setting is spectacular,” said listing agent Tia Lilly of Property Cape Cod. “And having the legal dock is a huge deal.”

The home also sits on a slightly more than one-acre lot, a sizable chunk of land for salt waterfront property.

Intrigue builds as you roll down the tree-lined driveway. There it is, your private oasis, a home where the ambiance and charm make every day a Cape Cod vacation day. The house features an airy and open design, with water views from the living room, dining room and kitchen. Or, take the party out onto the deck to delight in the sea breeze. Guests won’t be able to resist walking down to the water’s edge.

The Cedar Lane home features a open floor plan and has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bathroom.

On the second floor of the house, you’ll find the primary bedroom suite, with a bathroom and a charming Juliet balcony with a sweet water view. There’s also room for a home office.

“The house needs updating,” said Lilly. “But it will be easy to work with. With a little effort, it will be amazing.”

She added that the high-ceilinged basement could work well as extra space if new owners decide to finish it.

The home is located close to some of the most delightful attractions Cape Cod has to offer. A short kayak trip from the home will land you on Hopkins Island, an Orleans Conservation Trust property. Cape Cod National Seashore beaches are a short drive away, and all the dining and shopping options of Orleans are just around the corner.

Or maybe you just take a swim off your dock and watch the boats go by. There’s nothing like waterfront living!
