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, clothes dryer 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 and your tennis rackets for the two clay courts. Go to DIIA.org for more information on activities and amenities available for all at the club house. A permanent land bridge from Drakes Island 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.
