About David Sharken and Verena Smith

This house is the result of many years of dreaming of a home by the beach. Verena's mother made it possible by gifting her enough money to make a payment on the land.

She had had the same dream. We designed the house to be comfortable enough for us to stay privately in the studio and still have a very large house for larger groups of people to enjoy. It makes for an interesting lay-out.

Verena is an acupuncturist, doctor of Chinese medicine, herbalist and nutritionist. David coaches leaders of non-profits and small businesses on strategic planning, revenue and fundraising, and leadership development.

David Sharken and Verena Smith purchased this house in 2001

The house was in a quiet location and the woods surrounding the property make it private.

Nice place you got there......

  • 5 of 5

First off, the house is beautiful and the amenities were superb. Plus we had no complaints about how they kept the house. Clean as a whistle. Second off, I really love the location of the house. It's in a quiet neighborhood with very friendly neighbors and it's very close to some of the most best beaches in the world. And yet it is also close to town and many restaurants and sightseeing places...The cedar forest along the beach near the Marconi trans-Atlantic radio cable.

Not to mention Cahoon's Hollow and some the most best dunes anywhere...
