When a property has the “feel” of a traditional Cape Cod vacation, it is what we like to refer to as having the “Capey Feel”. This exceptional property offers just that, providing a mesmerizing setting with acres of natural beauty bordering Sesuit Neck’s salt meadow with magnificent marsh views. Get away to this tranquil setting, relax, and get into vacation mode. This location is peaceful, yet close to all the main attractions of the bay side of the Cape.
This is a historical home with the desired combination of charm, character, and history that creates the “Capey Feel”. Formerly home in the 1800's to the Shiverick Shipyard, this area played an important role in the sea captain era. The neighborhood called “Sesuit Neck” is designated as a Historic District preserving Dennis’ agricultural lands and heritage and is centrally located on the bay side of the Cape by Cape Cod Bay to the North, Sesuit Harbor to the East, and Sesuit Creek to the South. This neighborhood invites long walks, and leisurely strolls, and also accesses open space conservation trails that will take you on a pleasant walk bordering Quivet Marsh at its headwaters for bird watching and more.
There are two sides to this historical beauty: one is the historical Main House at Over the Bridge, and the other side, built more recently, is what we refer to as the Carriage House at Over the Bridge. Although they are attached, they have separate entrances and living quarters. The Carriage House is currently booked through August 22, 2021. However, we are renting out the Main House separately for the season, which offers 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.
The inground swimming pool will be shared between both sides of the home. However, there will be a separate fire pit for each side of the house.
Want to rent the whole house? Talk to our booking manager for available dates. Also ask about the use of the separate building designed specifically as an office for those who need privacy to do some work on vacation.
Dennis has many of the best beaches the Cape has to offer, along with some of the most spectacular sunsets on the Cape, powdered sand, views of Cape Cod’s tip at Provincetown, and miles of bayside horizon. Nearby public beaches include: Corporation, Chapin Memorial, Mayflower, Howes, and Scargo beach.
Walk over to Marshside Restaurant for dinner and cocktails with fantastic views overlooking scenic Sesuit Creek. Also famous Sesuit Harbor Cafe is a popular spot for picnic dining outside with your favorite seafood plate, where you can watch boats come and go from the Northside Marina at Sesuit Harbor, the largest on Cape Cod Bay.
Two miles down the road on the Old Kings Highway, (Route 6A), is the quaint Village of Dennis for shopping, dining, museums, coffee shops and bakery, local ice cream spots, antique stores, gift shop boutiques and more. The Dennis Playhouse is a favorite as well.
