Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: Two sisters inherited this property in 2008 from our dear dad, a builder who constructed it himself from the foundation up in 1954. The house was renovated and refurnished in 2007-8, but we kept some of the loving touches Dad built in, like the vintage main bath and the knotty pine kitchen cabinetry. We spent our own childhoods in this neighborhood and on this beach, and we hope your family makes memories here as fond as ours. As dog lovers ourselves, we welcome well-cared for, well-behaved pets (per our pet agreement) - they'll enjoy their time here too!
Why the Owner Chose Clinton:
Beach and marsh views, a variety of birds and wildlife, and good neighbors.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
A hilltop setting with plenty of privacy and room to play sets this property apart from most beach cottages in the local area, which are crowded together on tiny lots down near sea level.

Beach access is deeded and shared only with our longtime neighbors, offering an exceptional degree of privacy.
