Oyster Harbors Offers Luxurious Cape Cod Living
Surrounded by water, and including access to abundant amenities, Oyster Harbors offers the opportunity for luxurious, Cape Cod living. This gated waterfront community sits on Grand Island in Osterville.
The area is known for its extreme privacy and luxury, as this is one of the most exclusive communities on all of Cape Cod. Not only will you find upscale homes in Oyster Harbors, but you will also find some private beaches and a country club atmosphere.
After all, this is the location of Oyster Harbors Club, with an 18-hole, golf course and a large clubhouse that overlooks Tim’s Cove. Designed to complement traditional Cape Cod architecture, the clubhouse offers your choice of dining and some fantastic views overlooking Cotuit Bay.
You will also find a beach and several tennis courts at the club. To lend to its exclusivity, there are limited number of memberships available at the club, and about a third of them come from within the community itself.
The exquisite homes of Oyster Harbors often appeal to those in search of an upscale, boating lifestyle, as many of them include deep-water docks with space for yachts. Even the homes that don’t have their own private docks can easily use one of the marinas on Crosby Basin.
Because the community is surrounded by water, it’s easy to head out to Nantucket Sound, or to reach locations such as Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, living in Oyster Harbors. While the first home went up on the island around the turn-of-the-century, it developed in later years as mostly a summer resort.
Now, more than a century later, you’ll find a number of traditional Cape Cod-style homes in the community, including some architecturally significant homes. Some of the homes in the community feature a dock on Cotuit Bay and have deeded beach rights. While the community itself is quite exclusive, it’s only a couple of miles from the Village of Osterville, meaning living close to quaint restaurants, shops, and more.
