Corkin House

Truro, Massachusetts

Overlooking the beach, with a magnificent view of Cape Cod Bay looking Eastward and a private landscaped parking court on the West, this seaside compound is a comfortable, tranquil place for entertaining, relaxing, and enjoying the sun, seaside air, and the special light that Provincetown artists so admire. The compound consists of a charming late nineteenth century structure rehabilitated and repurposed as a guest cottage, alongside a new freestanding guest house, juxtaposed to a one-story,1900 square foot, main cottage. The three buildings together form an outdoor room - a wood decked courtyard with outdoor kitchen.

Entry to the main house leads casually onto a simple, minimalist open kitchen featuring a 5' by 12' marble topped island especially handy for mingling guests.. A breakfast/bar alcove tucked away in a corner is available for a quick home grown salad, an unpretentious capucchino, or a cool drink. Photo 2 of Corkin House modern home

A modest bedroom sits functionally askew to the main part of the cottage to provide a panoramic view of Provincetown harbor - a spectacular view of twinkling nighttime shore lighting as the dunes curve toward the tip of Cape Cod. The open french door leads to a secluded hot tub and deck area. Photo 5 of Corkin House modern home
