"Yonder is the great and wide sea with its living things too many to number." Castaway Cottage is a reinvented classic Cape style home partially built upon the remaining, large-stone foundation of a 200 year old early settler's homestead before the blue waters of beautiful Mahone Bay. The house consists of the original Cape, a newer great room addition at the rear, an adjacent attached double garage with family room in the loft, and a connecting front foyer acting as a breezeway between the garage and main body of the house. As one enters the front foyer, one is struck by the unusual angles and natural light sources with exposed beams and unexpected architectural detail. A staircase to the left, with its gentle rise, is incised with the inspirational words from Psalm 104:26 and leads through double French doors to a great room with this home's most prime vantage point looking out to sea. Returning to the entry hall there is a water closet tucked discretely to one side with a small closet opposite for hanging coats. As one enters the older body of the house there is a dining-room with gas fireplace to the front and a generous sized eat-in kitchen to the rear. Off the kitchen in the rear extension is a large living room bathed in western light. The principle bedroom suite is at the north eastern corner of the house with two generous sized closets and 5 piece bath. The personal bath also opens onto a small office/library space which has an alternative door to the living-room at the rear. The upstairs consists of two bedrooms off a central hall leading to a shared family bath. From the front bedroom in the eaves one enters a diminutive mezzanine reading corner which looks out through a skylight to the bay. This home has exceptional millwork, all in solid wood displaying superior craftmanship. Most floors are wide pine plank, and this design in its uniqueness is unlike anything in the county. The home has lovely water views and a warm welcoming spirit of a bygone era. (id:26749)
