Is the high cost of real estate keeping you from entering the Eastham market? As a consequence, do you rent a cottage each summer instead of buying? If so, this seasonal studio/condo at Pine Tree Cottages could be the solution. With an array of recent updates including new bathroom fixtures, rigid-core vinyl plank floors, insulated windows, AZEK trim & cedar siding, new 40-gallon water heater, 100 amp electrical and a freshly painted exterior, this captivating condo is anything but cookie-cutter. Its reasonable cost to own—HOA fee ($985.20/year which includes septic, town water, rubbish removal, liability insurance and lawn care) and property tax ($1011 in 2023)—can be defrayed by renting the weeks you don’t use (similar studios in the area rent for $700-$900/wk). Imagine collecting rent on the weeks you decide to lease, and not having to dole it out each time you want to go to the Cape for an overnight, a weekend, or longer. When the season’s over (April 1-Nov 15) simply call your plumber to shut it down, just like the seller has for years. This is true peace of mind 2nd home ownership with an upside that pays both personal and financial dividends…Its lovely curbside aesthetic is accented by a front door portico w/opposing decorative window boxes for good bi-lateral symmetry. Though modest in scale, the bright 12x13 living area has a spatial quality which seems to belie its compact dimensions. That said, the cottage is best suited for couples or anyone who appreciates that the size of a space bears no relation to the amount of fun which can be had in it. The crisply updated 5x5 bath has a glassed corner shower; the 5x7 kitchen has a propane gas range, an apartment-size refrigerator and enough cabinetry to keep the counter free of clutter. A single window A/C unit takes the edge off humid days, while baseboard electric heat keeps things cozy on spring and fall nights. An 8x8 deck overlooking the backyard provides a measure of privacy, and a great place to simply unwind…Pine Tree Cottages is comprised of 16 free-standing units plus a common building, which offers temporary storage. A convenient path directly behind the cottage provides backroad access to the popular CC Bike Trail, about 1/2 mile distant. Fort Hill can be safely reached using the sidewalk and pedestrian crossing light at Governor Prence Rd…From its attractive price point and recent updates, to its reasonable cost to own and excellent rental potential, Pine Tree Cottage #4 is worthy of your immediate consideration…Happy condo hunting!
