About Shanta Schachter
Shanta and Bari bought this property in 2016 but have been renting it for years before then. Shanta fell in love with the island in 2000 and was able to buy the adjacent piece of land. She spent the next few years building the small "shack" by the ocean by hand and with the large support of the amazing community around there who would stop in to check on her progress. Since then, she's been living in Philadelphia and gets there as often as vacation schedules allow. When she met Bari and they had their son, Leo, the game changed and they needed a place that was more than glorified camping. Bari has become equally enamored. We've had friends and family and others up to enjoy this amazing piece of land and the adjacent communities. It's hard to resist. We hope you'll enjoy.

Why Shanta Schachter chose White Sands
The property has an amazing history. It was built in the late 1800s and was once part of the expansive Buell homesteads. The family still resides in the area and are neighbors who have so many amazing stories about the land and the ways of the island. We would not be there without their ongoing friendships. Every year we learn more about the history of the property. It's dotted with old farm equipment; horse/human powered; the chestnut tree in the yard was planted in the 1950s to celebrate the return of a family son/soldier from the war; the remaining outbuildings were once a gardening shed and the tractor shed; the old barn was burned down after the roof fell in, which re-naturalized the plantings; you can also see the foundations of the old buildings at certain angles. Shanta's favorite thing: there is an old law that allows fisherman to access the first 20 feet of the shore to spread out their nets. And so, our neighbor has been carving a walking path along several properties so that we all have a little private "fishermans" walk.
What makes this Cottage unique
The view is one of the best on the island. When people decide to settle here, they choose this community because of the amazing people, the various beaches (secluded or public as you choose), and the unparalleled view.
