Property description

Sunset Cove is an architect-designed home perched on the waterfront in the quiet Smuggler's Cove neighborhood on the northern end of Chincoteague Island. The downstairs living room has a stone fireplace and comfortable seating with views of the water and woodlands. There is one bedroom and bath downstairs and three bedrooms on the second floor, all with water views. The house has been our second home and is furnished with a blend of antiques and comfortable contemporary furniture, with local art and crafts decorations.

Visitors to Chincoteague Island love the location -- even in the busiest times of the summer season, it is quiet and peaceful. Watching the sunset from the deck is a favorite evening activity. There is also a screened porch with table and chairs, off the kitchen. Sunset Cove is a special retreat, perfect for a romantic get-away or family vacation. You will love the 'lookout' on the second floor, with window seats on three sides, overlooking the bay and quiet, wooded neighborhood.

Car: Necessary

Chincoteague is known for its fishing and oysters, in addition to being the access point for the National Wildlife Refuge on Assateague Island, home to the wild ponies made famous in 'Misty of Chincoteague.' More recently, Wallops Island just south of Chincoteague has become an active launch site for space vehicles, including the spectacular launch of LADEE on September 7, 2013.

The quiet location of Sunset Cove is perfect for families, couples and those interested in a slower paced getaway.

Why Chincoteague Island, VA, USA:
Ken and I came to Chincoteague years ago and fell in love with the island. We found Smuggler's Cove and had architect Steven Gantner design a special second home for us. It is now is a favorite family vacation home that we share. We kayak in the Chincoteague Bay, catch blue crabs, bike and enjoy the beach. Spending even a few days here helps us relax and feel like we've had a long vacation. We hate to leave!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sunset Cove is perfect in every season and on any kind of day. There are sunny decks, a shady screened porch, cozy windowseats and lots of room to spread out. The water views are great -- shorebirds, seagulls, and just watching the waves. Even on the occasional rainy day, you can curl up on a sofa, watch a movie or read a book. And the kitchen is designed for people who enjoy cooking with a group -- lots of counterspace!
