On the Market: A Waterfront Stunner on a Kettle Pond in Truro

Over 15,000 years ago, large chunks of glaciers broke off and were pitted into the earth's natural land. These massive land contours evolved into Kettle Ponds, known as one the best-kept secrets on Cape Cod. Approximately eighteen exist within the Truro and Wellfleet town lines, protected by the Cape Cod National Seashore.

As one drives along the woodsy path lined with oaks and pines, your first glance of a kettle pond enlightens the spirit and soul. Overlooking Ryder Pond, one of the most secluded kettle ponds covering more than twenty acres, is 25 Elsies Road, a family compound situated on nearly three acres and rich with enchantment and discovery. Adorned with old vintage stacked stone walls, the property is ringed by laurels and Japanese maples. Today, after 42 years of ownership, the Drasher family is ready for a new generation to record a new chapter at this charming pond-front property. 

Imagine walking barefoot along the water’s edge through the morning dew at sunrise. Lost within your favorite read, you sit upon the rock wall overlooking the flowering pink dogwood.  A private floating dock calls for cannonballs and somersaults and invites you to kayak or canoe from one end of the pond to the other. An inspiring artist's haven, the artist studio is perfect for creating and blending old with new. On the cottage deck, host a Sunday morning brunch as you watch children play and run across the grassy field. 

At 25 Elsies Road, a serene property like no other awaits.
