NEW TO THE RENTAL MARKET! Listed on the National Register of historic places (Wellfleet Center Historic District), this Main Street gem has a storied history. A bed & breakfast in a former life, the home features several en suite baths, multiple living spaces, a private backyard and off-street parking. Built in 1712, the home has previously been used as a personal residence, a dry goods shop circa 1850, a tea room circa 1920 and the "Blue Gateways" Bed & Breakfast until the 1980s. Today, this four-bedroom two-story captain's house is a private home.
A large, central hall opens to a cozy living room with comfortable seating, a separate dining room with large dining table and a renovated kitchen with gas range, refrigerator and dishwasher all at the front of the house. At the back of the house, there is a lovely sun room with seating and a table perfect for puzzles, games or a quick bite. Just off the kitchen is a den with flat screen TV and cable and comfortable seating. Off the den is a full bathroom with shower and a bedroom with queen bed, window air conditioner and private door to the backyard.
Climb the stairway in the hall to the second floor featuring a central sitting area with sofa. There are three bedrooms on the second floor.

Another bedroom has a full (double) bed, window air conditioner and en suite bathroom with shower. The last bedroom has two twins, a window air conditioner and an en suite bathroom with shower.
The property has a large, fenced in-backyard--a lovely spot for a cocktail or a good book in the shade. Barbecue dinner for the whole gang on the gas grill.
