Gentle Heritage: Pleasant Bay – South Orleans, MA

Our waterfront estate in South Orleans features 300 feet on Pleasant Bay. The house sits on three private acres on a peninsula overlooking the bay, Quanset Pond, Chatham, Nauset Beach, and the Atlantic. The extensive lawn, with underground sprinklers, offers plenty of room for fun and sun between the 17 room house and the bluff. A pathway leads down to the sandy beach that also has a wooden deck.

The house, built around the turn of the century, offers plenty of room for everyone in the group to gather together or to find some private space. The 17 rooms include 9 bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths, and 3 fireplaces. The Master Bedroom features a king sized bed, three bedrooms feature queen sized beds. Five other bedrooms have sets of twin beds and one has three twin beds. The bedrooms provide sleeping for 19 people. In addition, the house is also partially air conditioned. 

The waterfront side of the house with a southern exposure features a large sunroom with sets of sliding glass doors, several porches, and a large terrace. The game room is a popular gathering place with a pool table and dart board. There are 2 living rooms each with a TV, VCR, DVD, and internet access. The main kitchen was remodeled in 2001 with Corian countertops, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, disposal, ice cube maker, etc. The former servants wing has an additional kitchen remodeled about 10 years ago and also has a microwave, dishwasher, disposal, ice cube maker, etc. There is a separate laundry room with washer and dryer.
