House is SOLD - 4 Lots Still Available for Sale - see bottom of page for information


Lot 2 - Songbird Circle, Orleans, Cape Cod, MA

4+Bedroom 3-Story Home with Heated Indoor Swimming Pool

Do you enjoy being surrounded by tall trees, expansive fields, flower gardens, huge boulders, and stone walls? Do you like to take walks down quiet wooded paths, birdwatch by day, and stargaze by night? If you are seeking serenity and seclusion yet convenience to beautiful bay beaches like Skaket Beach, parks like Nickerson State Park, excellent schools, restaurants and shopping, then make our tranquil Cape Cod Paradise your own!

Our 3-story 3,000 sq. ft. home was hand-built with love and care by the Boas Family between 1974 and 1985. The home is nestled in a locust and oak woods overlooking Namskaket Saltmarsh on Lot 2, the largest and most private of the 5 lots in Songbird Circle, Orleans' premiere cluster-zone subdivision. You enter the house via a stone pathway edged in flower beds. Inside are knotty pine walls and floors, huge skylights, wooden beams, cathedral ceilings and a stone fireplace. The walk-out lower level has an indoor, heated 12'x32' swimming pool, several storage and utility rooms as well as a guest or entertainment area complete with kitchen and half-bath.

The main floor of the home contains two living room areas - one with a 3'x6' skylight - a dining area, eat-in kitchen, office, half-bath and a 10'x24' sunroom. A beautiful fireplace handbuilt with large stones gathered from Cape Cod fields and beaches faces the kitchen-living room. The back of the fireplace is faced with more large stones that can be seen from the dining room and second living room area. You enter the house through a large entryroom with plenty of storage space. Off the sunroom is a screen porch that runs the entire width of the house. The kitchen looks out over an open deck that provides views of the wooded backyard and down the hillside toward the saltmarsh.

There are both indoor and outdoor stairways from the main floor that lead downstairs to the swimming pool room and backyard. The main floor has two more stairways that go upstairs to the top floor.  One of the stairways is an enclosed wooden circular staircase designed by a local craftsman.  Upstairs are three bedrooms, two full baths and a laundry room. The master bedroom contains a large 3'x6' skylight over the bed. A roomy attic for additional storage is accessed from the upstairs hallway.

Nearby is the Cape Cod Rail Trail.  Once on the trail you can bicycle or walk for miles and miles without worry about cars. Nickerson State Park is just a short distance away with all its beautiful lakes, hiking trails and activities. Skaket Beach is under a mile by road, an easy walk, drive or bike ride. Nauset Beach, the ocean beach, is 3 miles to the east. Shopping and restaurants in Orleans Center are less than a mile from the house.

Swimmers have access to year-round enjoyment with our 12'x32' heated indoor pool. The pool room has sliding glass doors that lead to the grassy back yard for sunbathing or play.



Relaxation, peacefulness and convenience await when you step through the door.  Our home is the type of place where people feel comfortable, at ease and safe.  Surrounded as the house is by so much natural beauty and conservation land - the woods, saltmarsh, garden areas, large boulders and fruit trees - people find it easy to forget that a busy world filled with shops, restaurants and businesses is less than a mile away. Although the beach, bike trail, shops and restaurants are all close by, our home is the kind of place you don't want to leave. There is something special about this handbuilt woodsy home that makes people set their "to do list" aside and settle into a cozy mood of contentment. The property has acres to explore, wildlife to watch, beautiful sunsets and gorgeous night skies to gaze upon from the warmth and comfort of skylit rooms. It is truly a one-of-a-kind find on beautiful Cape Cod.


Below is a picture of the plot plan of the property showing Lot 2 and the Open Space Conservation Areas abutting the home. In addition to the open space preserved for conservation in this development the home ajoins and overlooks hundreds of acres of conservation-protected saltmarsh with a winding channel that leads to Cape Cod Bay.
