Rarely does a property as enchanting and captivating as this one become available for purchase. Windy Willows at 91 Castle Road is a sprawling pristine antique which has been lovingly restored and updated, and sits on almost 8 acres of land. Nestled into the Truro landscape, very near to Corn Hill Beach, this estate enjoys breathtaking views of the Little Pamet river marsh. The home, with 4 wood burning fireplaces, is thought to have been originally built around 1750 and was in the same family until the early 1900s. Over the years it was added on to, and the dining room with a charming cove ceiling is thought to have been brought to the property as a cottage from Cold Storage Beach, and now connects the oldest part of the house with the newest wing. Approach the property from a sandy path off of Castle road and you are instantly drawn to the property as the sand turns to a shell covered path with a circular drive. Enter the home and the wall of windows frame the stunning view of the expansive manicured lawn that rolls down to meet the marsh surrounding the Little Pamet River. Most of the living is on one level and there are original pine floors throughout most of the home. The master suite enjoys great privacy as it flanks one end of the house. It was added approximately 20 years ago and was built to blend in with its antique environs. It boasts a cathedral ceiling, a Rumford brick wood burning fireplace, and french doors out to the garden. As you move through the home, you are transported back to a bygone era, as the restored wainscoting and builtins are so close to how they existed a couple of centuries ago. The intimate dining room connects the kitchen with the original parlor, at whose center a large wood burning fireplace sits as a focal point. Off the parlor are two bedrooms and a full bath. Upstairs, two more rooms serve as a painter's studio and a cozy den. All of the home's windows have been replaced within the past 3 years and there is a generator that services the whole house. There's no shortage of outdoor living space, between the charming screened patio, and the deck off the newer living room. The gardens and grounds are magnificent, with countless perennial varietals and fruit trees to captivate the senses. This home sits on a 5.5 acre parcel and is offered together with 2 additional lots that comprise part of the marsh land and bring the total land area to over 7.75 acres. The property has been featured throughout the years in many books and magazines. This type of opportunity may only present itself once in a generation.
