Property description

Completed in spring of 2013, hummingbird cottage is a charming cottage built for comfort. The ground floor has an open plan room with vaulted ceiling and beautiful venetian glass chandelier. The dining room area has a table that will comfortably seat six adults. The living area has a tv and comfortable slipcovered couch and two arm chairs. There are four large windows to maximise the natural light and provide wonderful cross breezes in the summer. The back door leads out to a patio with cushioned chairs and table for Al Fresco dining and two adirondack s for relaxing. There is an outdoor shower behind the house for showers after your days at the beach. Upstairs there is a loft style bedroom, quaintly tucked into the eaves,that has two twin beds that can also be pushed together to make a king size bed. The kitchen has a small fridge, microwave, toaster and coffee maker so you can enjoy light meals at home. A grill is also available to use. The marble walk in shower and marble floor bathroom is located next to the master bedroom which has a queen size bed.
Situated in Duxbury, a quiet town at the beginning of cape cod, close to everything but off the beaten track. This historic town has so much to offer, from oysters and lobsters to fresh baked french pastries. The six mile beach is just a few miles away from the cottage and here you can spend a day reaxing on the outer beach, home to endangered plovers and in the winter months, snowy owls.Just 35 miles from Boston you can see all the sites of the city easily in a day trip. There is a commuter train that takes you right to the city from the next town, Kingston. The ski resorts are just two hours drive and many can be reached in a day trip. Vermont and New Hampshire are also within a short drive and Rhode island too. The cottage is a perfect point from which to explore or to relax and enjoy all the local activities. The historic town of Plymouth, where the pilgrims landed is just a few miles away and a trip to Plymouth plantation or a whale watch off Provincetown are fun to do. We will do anything we can to make your stay wonderful and great. There is so much to see that one trip just wont be enough!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We have lived here since the year before our son was born in 2001. We have always dreamed of building a guest cottage and have visitors from all over the world to enjoy our beautiful town. My husband grew up here and I am originally from England.

Why the Owner Chose Duxbury, MA, USA:
This is our dream cottage that we designed after years of renting homes all over the world. We designed a clean, comfortable space with a private patio and garden with all the modern conveniences.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This home is bright, decorated with beautiful furniture and decorated tastefully. The grounds have beautiful plantings with many birds and rabbits, chipmunks and occasionally turkeys and deer can be seen.
