Manager info

Year Purchased: 1942

About: ***** E-Mail**** My wife and I live out of state. We use the house when we can and eventually plan to retire here. Our dachshund is a devoted Steelers fan

Why Mystic:
My grandparents built this house in 1942 when there were only a few people on the Island. They were able to get an absolutely ideal location. I have been coming here since the 1950s. We have continually updated the house and have had it professionally decorated. We don't put very much away, so our guests will feel that they are in a real home, not a rental

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Everybody who walks into the house is taken by the views and the way that it fits naturally into the setting. It is very well decorated but has a relaxed feel that makes it very comfortable. The sounds of the water and wildlife are simply incredible. The coziness does not mean antiquated. The electronics are incredible and easy to use. Security is foremost with digital door locks, security system, driveway surveillance, smoke/carbon monoxide detectors, and thermostats are of which are integrated and computer controlled. Home theater, stereo, and internet are very reliable and easy to use. Very clear instructions cover all aspects of the house, and a large notebook contains an exhaustive compilation of things to do.
