This artistic house is on 4 acres of meadow and trees at the end of a quiet private road. It has 180 degree waterfront, almost 2000 ft. of water frontage with open views across Potter's Pond. It has a boat launch and a dock with easy access to the OCEAN via Pt. Judith. Fishing and clamming are popular on this pond. Watch or paint gorgeous sunsets and sunrises from a large wrap around deck from sunny south to cool breezes under the grape arbor. The house has a 70's open floor plan with sliding glass doors on three sides to watch the wildlife, waterfowl and water activity.
Bedrooms: One comfortable queen size bed in the upper loft (closets abound up there) to be gotten to by a spiral staircase. From the pillow of this bed you can watch the sunrise over the water without lifting your head. Another room has 2 twin size beds with it's own access to the outside. The loft can also accommodate many more sleepers on air mattresses as it is a 'sleeping loft'.
This is an open house plan with a queen size bed on the second floor loft. A second bedroom on the first floor, has 2 twin beds and it's own door.
Bathroom: A large square tub/shower looks out through a full size window for basking in the sunshine while showering.
Kitchen: Full kitchen with large refrigerator, oven and microwave and a unique pantry for storage.
The heat is electric radiant and the wood stove is cozy for those chilly summer evenings.
Separate barn, separate greenhouse and organic garden plot and flower beds. Lots of bird watching--osprey, hawks, owls, swans, and great blue heron all share the skies with the seagulls.
Deer, rabbits and red fox live here too.
Miles of ocean beach is reached by by car or bicycle, only 2 miles or a short kayak trip across the pond.
This house was built by artists with their own hands and imaginations. There is creativity everywhere.
Enjoy the peacefulness, paint the beauty.
My sister and I inherited this home and gorgeous property when my father passed in 2006. We started renting it to like minds this past summer very successfully as you can see by the great reviews. It is a unique property in that both our parents were artists and built this house themselves. A great deal of thought has gone into the location of the house and it's views. The house itself is unique. It has a very large open room with a loft that sweeps around the outside of it. The kitchen and bath are both up to date and very accommodating.
Because of the location of this house, it is completely quiet. No road noise, no people, an occasional fisherman on the pond. It's three sides of glass makes it an ideal spot to work on art projects and the solitude leaves you undisturbed.
The beauty that surrounds the house is inspirational to both artists and writers. Every day brings large birds and plenty of wildlife to enjoy.
We have our own dock from which to sit and enjoy the sunsets or to push off from with the kayak.
Boating: Bring your own boat (shallow draft) to launch and dock. Fish in Potter Pond or go out to the ocean. Great sailing, too! Potter Pond is noted for clamming, right off our shores. Gardeners plant your own veggies in our organic garden! Or just enjoy peace and quiet in the sunshine on the deck
