Property Description:

Welcome to “Sunny Side Up”, an ideal waterfront pied-a-terre minutes from downtown, yet tucked away at the end of a dead-end lane. From sunrise to sunset, this enchanting antique cottage is bathed in natural light and offers panoramic water views from nearly every room. Enjoy your morning coffee on the covered porch that runs almost the entire length of the house, and cocktail hour as the sun sets low in the sky and casts its last rays during golden hour on the stone patio and lush lawn leading to the water's edge. Bring your boat, kayaks, and paddle-boards to the private dock on the tidal back channel. Take in the gentle sea breezes as the sunlight dances on the sparkling blue water with views from the four-season sunroom and living room beyond.Entertain at home with local shops offering seafood, provisions, wine and cheese even fresh flowers or enjoy a night out on the town just blocks away. This South End home offers rare parking for two to three compact cars. Every night, drift off to sleep to the subtle sounds of the gulls and tugs boats along the river, then wake up to a spectacular sunrise out your rear door. Don’t miss this opportunity for serenity and tranquility!
