About the property

5 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath, Guest Cottage, Heated Pool In Heart Of Center Ville

This secluded compound is perfect for family vacations and boasts endless activities for everyone! Unfortunately we do not allow events to be held at the property such as Weddings, Reunions or large parties.

The property consists of a Main House, Guest House and Boat House which have been renovated and offer 5 bedrooms with 4 full and 1 half bath all located down a long tree lined driveway with stone pillars a very short walk to Craigville Beach, Four C's and the Candy Store. The main house features 3 en-suite bedrooms, large open plan great room with 65" flat screen above the fireplace, chef's kitchen, 12 seat formal dining table, 10 seat round informal dining table, cozy TV den/office off the kitchen and a large ping pong and foosball game room. The great room/casual dining has two sets of double sliders onto a 20 x40 foot deck overlooking the private back lawn. The white bead board cottage consists of 2 bedrooms, large bath and changing area with extra refrigerator for pool side snacks. The sliders of the pool house open onto another 40 foot long deck overlooking the heated in-ground pool. The Boat House is a classic diamond windowed playroom with storage for kayaks/fishing poles and bikes located down a white shell path along the shoreline of the heart shaped lily pond. Feel free to take our 5 kayaks to the creek or the beach. The lush landscaping was designed in the 1880s by the world renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmstead and features an enormous flat fenced backyard, sun-drenched swimming pool. You can dine or lounge on multiple furnished decks on the back of the main house, overlooking the pool or on the pool deck itself. These decks compliment the open and airy feel of this private compound. A one of a kind, breathtakingly beautiful vacation home to create lifetime memories of carefree entertaining and easy living completely removed (yet right in the middle of) the Cape Cod vacation scene. Your children can play and swim all day at the beach or in your pool, play tether ball, ping pong, foozball, Ms Pac-Man, backyard lacrosse goals and bounceback, fish in the pond and more, all in secluded privacy, yet still only a short walk to Craigville Beach, world famous Four Seas Ice Cream, the classic Cape Cod 1856 Penny Candy Store, newly renovated kids adventure playground and park, town library and Centerville museum. Centerville sits on a peninsula overlooking Nantucket Sound and was once home to wealthy ship captains who built estate homes in the early 1800's. Located between historic Hyannisport and quaint Osterville with great boutiques, classic Cape Cod restaurants and terrific gourmet food shops like Fancy's and Lambert's.

About Stephen Corridan

We fell in love with this property the minute we drove through the old stone pillars. Our lives are all about family and friends and enjoying time together and this magical property has a way of making all those memories just that much more special. Our family has been spending summers at the Cape for many years, our kids grew up here during the summer and we look hope you will enjoy this special property as much as our family does!

Stephen Corridan purchased this estate in 2012

Why Stephen Corridan chose Centerville

The FernBrook property is unique in its history with the heart shaped gardens and lily pond having been designed in the late 1800's by Frederick Law Olmstead, the landscape architect who also designed Central Park. We love the combination of serenity, specimen plantings, privacy and endless activities for the kids. If the beach is too windy or cold the kids love coming home and jumping in the heated pool, or sitting by the lily pond with a cold drink and a good book.

What makes this estate unique

Every day the view changes over the lily pond - and while the house is centrally located it remains extremely private with a front and rear entrance off of two different streets. Having the 2 bedroom Guest Cottage is a nice advantage if two families are staying or if the kids want to invite friends for a sleepover.

Beautiful Property and Home

  • 5 of 5

We travel in a group, family and close friends, ranging in age from 26-almost 70 years young.

So, always looking for a place large enough to accommodate us. This fit us to a tee. The pool

was a huge treat, plenty of pool toys and we brought our own as well. The decks are enormous, lots of umbrellas down by the pool and decks, within and outside the house are

seating areas all over the place. Many enjoyed sitting in the gazebo looking out at the lily pond.Walking distance to the 1856 country store, a huge plus, our daughter, now 32 has been

visiting the store since she was 6 years old, we all love it. Four Seas was closed, just open on the weekend which was fine since the house even has a frappe machine! Played lots of ping pong, Bingo, we have the real game and always travel with it, many prizes purchased at the candy store since we ran out. The beach was so close, we could have walked and the water was deliciously warm one day and chilly another. I give the house a 5 star review even though we found the kitchen working area very tight. All of us love to cook, we seldom go out to eat.

If the island was pushed out a few feet it would have been a 6 star! Beds comfy, sheets and towels so nice, loads of beach towels as well. The kitchen had everything we needed. I would certainly recommend this home. The grounds are serene, beautifully kept and my guess would be children would find this place a huge treat. Loved it!

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

What a great property! We had such an incredible time at this beautiful home. It is very spacious, bright and beautifully decorated with all of the conveniences. We really felt like we were at home. From the gourmet kitchen to the heated pool, this house had everything we wanted and needed. It's also 5 minutes from the beach!

The owner was always very responsive throughout the process and provided all the details we needed. I would highly recommend this rental and can't wait to return:)

The yard allowed for many family games and competitions,kayaking in the pond was so fun even for the younger ones, fishing and catching tadpoles,synchronized swimming routine shows in the pool,ping pong tournaments,fosbo and the video game arcade was so fun !!! The beach was close along with a general store,4 seas inc cream, playground and Library all walking distance.The house is beautifull ,clean and plenty of space for everyone !!

Beautiful property! Did not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

Oftentimes, pictures make a property look a lot better than it truly is; that was not the case with this one. From the moment we stepped out of our cars, we were enthralled with our "home away from home." The grounds are gorgeous, almost park-like. There is a great pool, which we used daily. The Corridan's have decorated the inside of their home in a beautiful, yet casual nautical theme. The beds are very comfortable, and every bedroom has its own bathroom. There is also a guesthouse with two additional bedrooms, which became very handy for us. We enjoyed every inch of this amazing place,including the hammock, the geese, fishing in the pond, ping-pong, and pool. After deposit, I corresponded with Stephen (the owner) several times, and he was incredibly accommodating. We were here with our daughters, sons-in-law, and 4 grandchildren (5 and under) to celebrate our 40th anniversary. We would come back again in a minute!!

Thanks so much Corridans!!

Beautiful, quiet property with huge yard and heated pool

  • 5 of 5

Nice, large house with multiple living/dining/common areas. Older home that's been remodeled in stages so some parts are newer and nicer than others, but in good shape overall.

3 bedrooms in the main house, each with their own private bathroom (all upstairs). Guest/pool house with 2 additional bedrooms, bathroom, and living room.

Huge, beautiful lawn (size of a football field!), nice large decks that are well furnished, new BBQ and best of all a heated pool.

Located in a quiet area on a very private lot. A car is required to go basically anywhere.

Owner was very responsive and easy to work with. It's their vacation home that they rent part of the year and they're selective about their tenants to keep the place in good shape. Overall, great experience!
