A magnificent South Truro waterfront mid-century modern home set high above Cape Cod Bay is being offered for the first time since it was built in 1952. One of the most beautiful waterfront sites along the Truro bayside was carefully chosen by mid-century architect Ray Brock for what was to be his family's summer property. From there, he took great delight in siting, designing, and building the home that is there today. Set high and back on the dune, the siting takes full advantage of how the dune falls away, giving the property water views that are more broad and expansive than other Truro waterfront properties. The outstanding view includes a rare sweep of the beach spanning from Fisher Beach around to Long Point at the tip of Provincetown. Special note: this area of the Truro waterfront is gaining beach, not eroding, which has been documented and mapped by the state. The 1952 build date is on the earlier side for the modern house movement on the Outer Cape, and the house has design elements often seen in much later modern homes, such as a step-down living room, different split levels, and a dramatic sloping roof. The design is exciting, and the house is well maintained, retaining all its original features and giving a vintage camp-like experience. It harkens back to simpler times and a slower pace of life. The home is in move-in condition or is a good candidate for winterizing and renovating to your tastes; the choice is yours.
