A Middle Beach Charmer! Gorgeous sandy beach! Water-views! "The Spirit house" cottage, built in 1904 retains a rare charm and elegance that represents the classic New England beach cottage of yesterday. This very well constructed home in "well loved" condition has been enjoyed year-round by only one family and their guests since purchased from original owner/ builder in 1953. Directly across the street from the beach with a direct access easement the 3 story colonial style cottage enjoys a very large living-room open to a spacious dining-room. Plenty of room for guests with 4 bedrooms plus extra rooms in the finished attic area which includes a full bathroom making a total of 3.1 bathrooms, a sleeping porch in the rear of the second floor and a wonderful second floor balcony facing the Long Island Sound. Off the kitchen is a laundry area, full bathroom and a temperature controlled wine cellar room. Architecture enthusiasts will admire the "good morning staircase" off the living-room and kitchen areas. After a long day at the beach sunset lovers can enjoy cool breezes on the large wrap-around porch while taking in the relaxing water-views. All situated on a extra large .29 acre parcel with an over-sized one car garage and ample room for a pool or further expansion if need if needed. Low taxes of appx $21K annually, extremely high rent potential if desired.
