- 1920Year Built
This classic and utterly charming quintessential beach cottage sits behind a white picket fence on a beautiful lot and is mere steps to idyllic Grove Avenue ocean beach at the end of the street. Ideal location to take a daily swim or have one's own boat, kayak, or paddle board. Meticulously maintained and owned for 45 years, it has been cherished by three generations. Thoughtful upgrades include renovated kitchen, new roof on both structures, 4 BR upgraded Title 5 septic 2017, expanded and finished garage/boat shed/office/studio with wood floor, cathedral ceiling, loft, half bath, beverage area, and outside shower. The neighborhood is primarily year round and has an interesting maritime history, once the location of the village's superior town wharf, a boat chandlery, boat builder, and more. The main house includes a sunny kitchen with pantry, large living room with brick fireplace and dining area, wood floors, and over 1200 s.f. combined of wrap around front porch and covered back deck. Upstairs are four bedrooms, one with a breezy screen porch, a large full bath, and ample linen closet with ladder to the attic. The light filled attic (not a part of the calculated living space) at the top of a ship's ladder is a bonus rainy day hide-out, play area, or meditation retreat and includes skylights and gable end windows. Overlooking the large grassy lawn sits the garage/boat shed/office/studio, expanded and upgraded in 1997. The spacious yard is lovely with old growth trees and newer landscaped flowering shrubs and trees including Lilac, Holly, and Hydrangea and affords a ground level, small waterview of the ocean. In summary this welcoming property is a rare find and needs to be seen to be appreciated. Easy walking distance to the VH Yacht Club, West Chop Woods, and the village amenities or ferry.
