West Barnstable Real Estate
West Barnstable is a coastal village located on Cape Cod in the far northwest area of Barnstable, Massachusetts. The village lies east of Sandwich with its shores on Cape Cod Bay. West Barnstable is home to one of the Cape’s most celebrated beaches — the six-mile long Sandy Neck Barrier Beach which stretches across dunes, maritime forests and marshes. The beach is ideal for swimming, soaking up the sunshine, and exploring marine creatures in their natural setting in the many shallow tidal pools.
Most of West Barnstable consists of Sandy Neck, the Great Marsh/Barnstable Harbor, and the West Barnstable Conservation Area. The Great Marshes include a network of creeks, including Scorton Creek, Eel Creek, Boat Cove Creek, and more. The High Pointe Inn, a luxurious bed-and-breakfast set high on a hill overlooking the dunes, is another popular destination, appearing frequently on New England’s list of most romantic inns.
West Barnstable is primarily a residential community with single-family homes ranging from stately colonials to waterfront estates to newly constructed capes and contemporaries. The Point Hill neighborhood located of Sandy Neck Road offers spectacular views of Scorton Creek, Great Marsh and the dunes.
