A Cottage You Will Fall in Love With
Built in the traditional saltbox style, the combination of horizontal siding, traditional clapboard, and sea green shutters gives the Captain’s home a welcoming feel that will excite from the first moment you lay eyes on it. Step inside to a simple space, decorated with your comfort in mind, yet still offering period details that charm. Wide planked wood flooring creates a historic path to the spaces you can’t wait to explore, starting with the living space. Offering a traditional wood hearth fireplace, painted all in white, the red wing chairs placed in front invite you to sit down and warm yourself with fire and conversation on the coldest of days. Tucked away in the opposite corner lies a plush sofa set, placed across from a state-of-the-art television, allowing guests to keep up with their shows or watch the big game during their stay.
The history of this home shows in other ways, offering separate rooms for each activity, instead of one big open floor plan, so the dining room is where we will head next. Painted in a crisp white and filled with period furnishings, this space is where games can be played, meals can be shared, and conversations will definitely be enjoyed. A door to the left leads guests into the kitchen, a space offering cabinets painted in the stormy gray of the seas, sandy colored granite tiled counters, and updated stainless steel appliances. A hammered copper sink and antique bronzed fixtures offers a modern touch with a historic feel and the large peninsula is the perfect spot to enjoy cereal and conversation on a lazy vacation day!
Outside, a wraparound porch offers a barbecue grill and another place to eat and relax, while the ocean provides romantic ambient noise as Skaket Beach is just half a mile away. Back inside, the tour finishes with the four bedrooms, decorated in a simple style that allows sleep to be the star of this vacation, and a charming and luxurious bath tucked away under the eaves of the cottage. Featuring the same wide plank wood floors that can be found throughout the house, a deep slipper tub that is topped with a tray for reading and sipping, this room is often the most popular one in the home!
