This Cape-Cod-style 1.5-story cottage was designed and built by the owner in 2008 on a 2.4acre private wooded lot. It sits high atop a hill overlooking Mill Creek, and has tidal waterfront depth good for kayaks.
The exterior of the home is in great condition, with Williamsburg Blue vinyl siding, and white vinyl-clad exterior doors and windows. The covered 5' front landing is decked with composite boards so it will never rot. The large back deck was just completed, It is a 24'x24'x12' L-shape for a 432' of outdoor living space. 288' square feet is covered with a standing-seam metal roof, and this area could easily be screened in. 12'-wide full-width stairs have 16" treads to be easy on the knees.
Bright light and solid woods greet you throughout the house. Three skylights pour light down through the open loft into the downstairs dining area and kitchen. Solid 3/4" maple hardwood floors shine throughout, with natural slate in the front entry, laundry room, downstairs bath, upstairs bath and shower, and around the gas fireplace. The living room downstairs is full of windows for views of the woods and creek. It is complimented by a vent-free gas fireplace with custom stale tilework. Built-in shelving above can accommodate a 42-46" flat-screen television, and the room is wired for the installed surround sound system.
