Beaufort house description

This adorable home is a quirky little 2 bedroom 1 bath 1940's cottage located in the heart of Historic Downtown Beaufort. We have completed the addition of a beautiful, private, back yard patio. There is a driveway to the side of the house with room for 1 car. Duke Cottage is adjacent to our other property, Baby Charles, VRBO #282865. In the Spring of 2013 we renovated the Sarah Gibbes Barnwell House ca 1835. She is a 3 BR 3.5 BA beauty, just 1 block from the Waterfront Park! Have a look at VRBO #472201!

From this location, you can easily walk to our gorgeous waterfront park where there are lots of restaurants, galleries, and shops. There are porch swings lining the waterfront and it is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the ‘yacht parade’ on the Beaufort River, which is part of the Intracoastal Waterway. The Point neighborhood, filled with antebellum mansions used in the filming of many movies, is just 4 blocks to the east and a wonderful area for leisurely strolls.

Inside the house there is central AC (and heat), as well as whisper quiet ceiling fans in the living room and both bedrooms. It has a cozy living room with a 40' Sony Bravia flat panel TV, HD cable and a DVD player.

The kitchen is large and bright and has been completely redone with a glass top electric range, dishwasher, and refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, and a stacked washer/dryer unit. All cabinets and countertops are new, with a deep stainless steel sink and a pull down spray faucet. All new pots, pans, dishes, glassware, flatware, and necessary gadgets are provided - as are small appliances like a coffee maker, toaster, blender, and a hand mixer. The kitchen is also stocked with staples such as salt and pepper, coffee, tea, and sugar - just to name some.

The Dining Room has large windows on 2 walls. The dining table is round glass and seats 4 comfortably. There is a lovely curved metal chandelier for ambience.

The master bedroom has a 2011 Sealy Posturepedic mattress and boxspring with 100% cotton high thread sheets and fluffy new pillows. ****Starting Fall of 2013 (after a month of travel around France) we are switching out all of our Queen bedding to white European Duvet & Shams - there will still be the high thread count sheets, but instead of a dry cleaned bed cover that you have to remove to sleep under, now you will have a freshly washed duvet cover and shams that can be used for sleeping. These are changed between each guest. It's more work, but it as we discovered, it is a better sleeping experience for the guest!

The second bedroom has a single bed with the same mattress, except that it is a twin. We tried having a trundle, but it is too cramped to be comfortable, so the house is limited to 3 guests.

There is one bathroom, and while it isn't large, it is bright and fresh and comes stocked with plenty of 100% cotton fluffy towels. Amenities and a blow dryer are also provided.

The private patio has a dining table with 4 chairs and an umbrella, and 2 chaise lounges and a huge umbrella at the other end. It is a lovely place to relax and enjoy the outdoors.

Pets are allowed with prior approval and a refundable deposit. Please let me know what kind and size of pet you wish to bring so we can discuss it's appropriateness!

All you have to bring is you and your clothing - we've got the rest!

          Car: Not Necessary

          We are located in the heart of the historic downtown - lots to see and do all within walking distance! Our waterfront park is the lovliest on the east coast, and it is just a short walk from the house.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2009

          About the owner: After growing up in FL and spending many years in Texas and Arizona - living in the Washington DC Metro area for 22 years was enough COLD weather for us. As soon as our son went to college, John sold his computer business and we headed to Beaufort! Now he focuses his energy on alternative energy and enjoying the outdoors. I still do Hospitality Interior Design for a major hotel chain, but also spend most of my time enjoying this gorgeous area. Our son visits as often as he can, as do our many wonderful friends. Life is good here in Beaufort!

          Why the Owner Chose Beaufort:
          We bought this little house because it backs up to our other property, VRBO #282865. We love the location and the neighborhood, and we wanted to be able to offer additional accommodations! A year and a half ago we added VRBO #472201 - a spectacular antebellum home we just totally renovated! It is just 1 block from the Waterfront Park. We recently finished #631501, 1.4 miles from here in the Hermitage Neighborhood - by the rail trail!

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Our guests comment that it is a perfect distance to the waterfront and Bay Street. They love being immersed in the history of the area and being able to walk to everything. It is just far enough to be away from all the weekend noise and traffic, yet still in the heart of it!
