About the owner: My name is Steven and I'm an interior designer now living in Los Angeles. I've enjoyed spending the last few years renovating my cottage to reflect a sense of what ideal summer living in New England should be- relaxed, casual and in tune with nature. I've had a lifelong appreciation for the water which has influenced the design of the home, as well as the materials I've used throughout the property.
Why the Owner Chose Warren: I grew up in the house next door. Like many of my neighbors and their returning children, I've acquired a slice of heaven that retains the same environment that was so familiar while growing up. The sounds drifting off the water from the boats passing by, the wildlife that occasionally meanders through the yard and the smell of the salt air mixed with the summer sun are what make this spot in Touisset very special. Living by the water seems to be so conducive to naturally reducing stress. An ever changing view of the tides, great sunsets and the surrounding wildlife and nature are what make the cottage the perfect place to relax and decompress.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Ideal for a relaxing, romantic getaway or vacation home, writer’s retreat. Great for those who love nature, kayaking, sailing, swimming and boating! Experience an endless summer in New England that you won't forget.
