Welcome to 3Harbors Realty's new blog snippets--snapshots of interesting happenings in and around our three harbors offices. One of the Outer Cape's most popular events is the Wellfleet Oyster Fest, two days of food, music and fun, October 17-18. Downtown Wellfleet is transformed into one huge street party, with music, fun and food. The oyster shucking contest is almost as world famous as the oysters themselves. While at Oyster Fest, stroll over to 70 Commercial Street where 3Harbors has a lovely year-round condo for sale--look for the brochure box in front of the property.
A recent article in the New York Times Home and Garden section spotlighted the gents who purchased the former Martin House Restaurant building and restored it as a private home. The article does a great job of showing how the old and the new have blended so vibrantly in Ptown. Apparently, the old Martin House is haunted, perhaps by ghosts of dinners past...Not too far from the the former Martin House, you can stop by 136 Commercial (our Ptown office) to see about finding your own special place in Ptown.
It's mushroom season in Truro, the smallest and most agricultural of the towns on the Cape. This time of year it isn't unusual to see folks walking the local byways, especially in the Cape Cod National Seashore, bags in hand, looking for edible species of mushrooms which sprout on the Outer Cape during October. Yet one more unusual activity which makes our area so interesting--even when it isn't summertime. Abutting the Seashore in Truro is a gorgeous home currently on the market featuring interiors by Christina Oliver, ASID. This large residence has an amazing gourmet kitchen--perfect for making a risotto with the mushrooms just picked nearby.
Thanks for reading. See you next time!
