Fairhaven cottage description

WELCOME TO THE DISTINCTIVE COTTAGE COLLECTION ON WEST ISLAND AND SCONTICUT NECK PRESENTED BY HOWE ALLEN REALTY.

Shell Cottage was built in 2012 by a custom builder. It features vernacular design and construction materials and is most appealingly furnished.
The Kitchen is large and open to the great room. It features beautiful appliances including range top, wall oven, double-door refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave oven. There is a generous amount of counter space and a breakfast bar open to the living room.
This home has a first-floor master bedroom and bathroom. The master bedroom with queen-sized bed opens to a large private deck with outdoor shower and BBQ grill. The great room features a gas fireplace, dining room and abundant light from large windows and skylights.
Upstairs, you will find a wonderful loft space with queen-sized floating bed, additional family room and balcony views to great room.
Additional amenities include LCD HDTV and high-speed wireless internet access.

A little information about the area:

West Island is one of the South Coast's best kept secrets. Located in Buzzard's bay, this small residential-only Island offers the visitor and resident peace and quiet or access to any number of action-packed pursuits.

Over half the island is State Conservation land offering many nature trails, wildlife viewing and truly impressive vistas. There are several choices for ocean access; the protected water (bayside) beach or the Buzzard's Bay beach (voted the #3 town beach in all of New England).

Originally farmland, the past two centuries have seen West Island gradually change to a vacation destination for locals who know what a gem they have so close to home. It is not uncommon to meet others during your stay who have been vacationing here for decades or who's family has owned the same home for nearly a century.

While maintaining its charm, West Island has also kept pace with technology. City Water and Sewer, high-speed internet, satellite television are just some of the amenities you will find while on our island.

Within 4 miles you will find two large supermarket chains, department stores as well as other well-known chain establishments. West Island is a mere 60 minutes from Boston, 45 minutes from Newport and under half an hour from the Bourne or Sagamore bridges.
