Hosted by KingsleyAsk a question
I am an artist and former architect, mostly living in Boston. I've been working for myself for 28 years at a cooperative pottery studio in Brookline. I started visiting Truro in 1993 with a friend and fell in love with the Outer Cape. Every season here is extraordinary, and I especially love the spring and fall - which is perfect since I rent summer and winter! When I'm here I usually have several projects going, always looking for new ways to improve the house.
Kingsley purchased this house in 1996
Why Kingsley chose North Truro
Like a lot of visitors to Cape Cod, I'd spend part of each vacation fantasizing about owning a home here. Just a simple beach cottage, something I could work on myself and improve. A chance conversation with a local resident let me know about a foreclosed house not yet on the market so I checked it out. A lot more house than the humble cottage I was looking for! But the price was good and I jumped on it and so glad I did! It didn't need a lot of serious work, so I threw myself into furnishing it and painting - every room a different color. Fortunately I find home improvements and repairs both interesting and relaxing!
What makes this house unique
Cape Cod can get kind of crazy in the summer, but here in Truro, and particularly on my road, the crowds and traffic seem very far away. Coming home after a day at the beach, taking an outdoor shower and lazing in the hammock is so peaceful! Then a cool drink on the deck as the sun sets and the fireflies come out - the essence of vacation and "getting away from it all"! I think my favorite thing about my house is the living space, which along with the two decks, provides so many different places to be and yet stay connected with others. Lots of light and breezes make it lovely to be inside or out. And with the beach at the end of the road there are whole days that I don't get in the car - that's my idea of vacation!
