Named for the SS James Longstreet 'Target Ship' that graced our horizon starting in the 1940s, 'Longstreet Lane' still looks & feels like the Eastham of old, with its sand-covered surface and smattering of original cottages, many of which have been in the same families for generations. Perched on a knoll near the end of the lane--a mere 150-feet from the Bay--48 Longstreet Lane is a spacious 3BR/2.5BA contemporary saltbox that combines a love of place, with a place you're sure to love: just 20-years-old, its holistic design utilizes a reverse floor plan together with its topography to capture peeks of the Bay--south toward Brewster, where the curvature of the Cape is clearly seen, and west toward the setting sun. Its generous 1/2 acre lot offers a surprising degree of privacy in a home this close to water...Upon entering, guests are greeted by a tiled, 16x22 family/sunroom w/9.5-foot ceilings & adjacent full bath w/stall shower & granite vanity. This lovely, light-filled room offers great separation from the upstairs living areas and doubles as a 4th sleeping space, if needed. An extra-wide winding hallway contains a convenient 1st floor laundry and another full bath, this time w/tub & shower. Three generously sized bedrooms, each with hardwood floors, large windows and 8-foot ceilings occupy the 1st level. The large, 14x14 Master has extra-deep closets and 4 opposing windows for great cross ventilation. The open, airy & bright 22x30 upstairs kit/din/living area is as pleasant as any space you're likely to find, with vaulted ceilings, a relaxing seascape color palette, delightful 1/2 bath, recently refinished hardwood floors and three 6-foot Andersen sliding glass doors to an extra-large 12x30 west-facing sundeck. Whether inside or deck-side, a strong visceral sense of the Bay's proximity is your constant companion: gulls wheel & cry overhead, waves roll along the shore, and somewhere far off a bellbuoy sounds. Its prime location--one lot back--is safe from mercurial winter weather and the tyrannical effects of water & wind erosion...Longstreet Lane is somewhat unique amongst seaside communities by offering property owners both deeded beach access & deeded beach usage rights. It's an important distinction. In certain Eastham communities waterfront homeowners have claimed ownership of the beach in front of their homes, much to the consternation of their unsuspecting neighbors: nothing spoils a day at the beach like an angry homeowner rushing up & down the shore dubiously claiming to "own" the sand in front of their property. By contrast, Longstreet's 'family-friendly' beach is yours to enjoy for perpetuity...A Weil-McLain high-efficiency Nat Gas boiler helps keep heating costs down, and in keeping with its holistic design, solar panels help reduce electricity consumption...Rented during the months of July & August by mostly repeat tenants for $3400/wk. Being sold furnished and ready to go...From its 'right there' beach access & peeks of water, to its lovely condition & generous living spaces, 48 Longstreet Lane is worthy of your immediate consideration...Happy house hunting!
