“To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly, to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart, to bear all cheerfully, to all bravely await occasions, hurry never. In a word, to let the spiritual unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony.”
— William Henry Channing
The BEACH COTTAGE is located directly at the top of a dune and has a set of private stairs to the bay beach where you can experience almost total privacy. The BEACH COTTAGE has a small entry way with a sitting area for dining at an antique table that can seat 6. There is an open plan kitchen area with refrigerator, electric stove, microwave, coffee maker and all your kitchen needs. Living room area opens to the kitchen with an old comfortable couch and an equally comfortable chair that face a wall of windows on the bay. There is a 36″ TV and DVD player as well as a Vermont Casting old fashion gas stove with glass windows for off season warmth and ambience.
For sleeping, there is a very private room that holds a custom made kingsize bed facing windows on the garden and the bay. This room has a fireplace, a dresser and a closet to hang clothes. A smaller room located at the opposite end of the cottage has an antique double pineapple bed with a bay view. There is a small bathroom with a clawfoot tub and shower. The front of the beach cottage has a private deck on the bay with reclining deck chairs.
Behind the cottage there is a very private back garden surrounded by trees and dunes with seating arrangements, a charcoal grill and a picnic table for outside dining. Additional features are a completely private outside shower that faces the bay and a stereo system that plays both in the living room and on the rear patio.
The house covered in ivy and rose vines is surrounded by olive trees, pine trees, and two century old english oaks. Lighting on the property is by antique brass lanterns.
