Drakes Island cottage description

This Victorian cottage is designer decorated for easy beach-side living. Only steps from the beach, the house is set back from the road behind a white picket fence among pine trees and mature landscaping. The first floor has a screened porch, living/dining room and kitchen, full bath and master bedroom (double bed). The ajoining rear cabana has a half bath and private changing area with outdoor shower. The second floor has three bedrooms with a rustic open beamed roof (no ceilings).

For those that do not know Drakes Island, it is a great family location with only residential properties and a long sandy beach. An easy 1 minute walk to the beach means less hassle and lots of choices that do not require a car. The Drakes Island clubhouse and playground offers many organized activities for kids of all ages. Bring your bikes to ride along the quiet residential streets. A permanent land bridge from Drakes Isalnd makes for easy access to shopping, restaurants, and movies.

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: My father's family started coming to Drakes Island in 1913 & fell in love with it. So far, 5 generations of our family have come every summer since then. No matter how far away parts of our family have moved, we all come 'home' every summer to center ourselves.
