Description:

Circa 1899, this distinctive 4/2 home (2,080SF) and detached 1/1 cottage (648SF) are situated 1 block off the waterfront in one of the oldest section’s of our residential historic district. This block of Marine Street offers a smorgasbord of architectural gems and you’d never know the heart of our commercial quarter is only 3 blocks away. For 34 years a New England couple wintered here but in 2013 new owners arrived to undertake a complete renovation with an eye toward preservation and comfort.

Having presided from its perch for over a century, the house has turned heads for a long time and now more so than ever. Framing the front door, stained glass windows and transom are especially beautiful at night. Inside, art deco tiles in the foyer set the tone for your exploration. 1st floor bed or flex room is on the left (great for guests who don’t do stairs). Antique French doors open to a closet and on to laundry room which leads to the deck. A very generous living and dining room is open to the kitchen so everyone is part of the mix. Brick, soapstone and wood add texture to the kitchen and the stove is a work of art. Hidden pantry and two glass-fronted closets add extra storage. Guests spill out to the deck and walled courtyard with the Historical Society gardens as the backdrop. A full bath by the stairs serves 1st floor bedroom and day guests. Upstairs three large sunny bedrooms share a wonderful bathroom with slipper tub and separate shower. Be sure not to miss a single photo so you can see the details! A master conversion is easily accomplished if so desired and still end up with 2 bedrooms up and 1 down. And now for the cottage connected by the back deck with its own driveway on the north side of the house. Plumbed for kitchenette, the space is bright and airy overlooking the gardens across the wall. A large bedroom with bath upstairs has a closet with washer/dryer connections. Too many words, not enough space – come for a look and be prepared to stay a while.
