Original hexagon beach cottage on second row corner lot with beach access directly across street! This home was designed and built by Air Force Major Walter Pillsbury according an article printed years ago in the local paper. ''As if a hexagonal-shaped house weren't enough, the major crowned it with a steeple.''. The steeple was replaced in 2008 with a gorgeous custom built cupola. The interior of the cupola, the ceilings and some interior walls are charming heart pine. Light filters in through the cupola which acts as a skylight. ''The living area and kitchen are divided only by a bar leaving an open area of approximately 35 x 26 feet.. .. Long, heavy exposed beams cross the ceiling.'' On VRBO, the home is known as the Happy House!The home was built around a couple of large oak trees. Sitting on the front deck, you feel like you are in a tree house.
One bedroom features a "bed in the wall," the most popular place to sleep. This bedroom also has a second bed, so this is often the kids room. This bedroom also has an en-suite bath, so it could be the master bedroom. A second full bath is located off the living area.
The open kitchen features a long bar for bar stools. Check out the cool range hood! The refrigerator, washer and dryer can stay. There is room for a dining table in the great room. Washer/dryer connections are located in the second bedroom.
This property is a turn key rental property or you can move-in fairly quickly (some future rentals exist at time of listing).
There is a circular driveway. A beach shower is located under the front porch and there is plenty of storage space for bikes and beach chairs under the home.
This home was one of the only houses on the block that survived Hugo in 1989. Currently located in the VE flood zone, preliminary flood maps appear to show this home in the AE zone, where properties are much less expensive to insure. Please verify as these maps have not yet been adopted.
