A winding driveway takes you to your hideaway by the sea, ideal for a couple looking to get away from it all. The house was built in 2013, with a french country feel in mind, designed to feel like a true getaway. Situated on a beautiful peninsula, just steps from the bold Atlantic dramatic shoreline, you will wake up to spectacular views, the sound of rolling surf, smell of salt air, and Nature all around.
Enjoy glittering sunsets, and the different moods and colors of the sea. Whether dramatic rolling surf, or tranquil days of glass, it's an awe inspiring experience every day. There are 23 acres and 1000 feet of frontage to explore...follow the trail leading from the house along the coast which starts from sea level leading up to a high dramatic ridge for more gorgeous views of surrounding islands and harbours...a beautiful boulder and stone beach highlights the pristine crystal waters that often give a caribbean hue..
South and West exposure ensures plenty of sun, beautiful lighting, making your vacation days feel that much longer.
The open concept kitchen / living space is great for cooking with a view and a huge roaring fire. 10ft ceilings and 8ft doors make it airy and bright with ocean views from every room. The feel is casual, cottage cozy, with comfortable furniture, antiques, and artwork. A great place to be with the ones you love, relaxing with good food, good company and endless ocean views.
It's really all about nature here. Excellent area for fly fishing, (one of Babe Ruth's favorite spots) kayaking, hiking, birding, wildlife viewing.
