Stalwartly surveying the vista of Kings Bay and its long strand of white sand beach, the fish shack on Hell Point graciously illustrates the durable simplicity of maritime vernacular architecture. In this “less is more design”, durable simplicity and supreme quality go hand in hand. Wrapped in a silver patina of weathered cedar shakes, the Fisherman's Cottage and the unoccupied principal house are kindred spirits integrated by 1,000 sq. ft. of unadorned timber decking. The deck expands the living area and is the perfect place to contemplate spectacular sunrises and sunsets. The main level is a wide-open, glass enclosed space. The second floor contains one bedroom and a full bathroom with views of the crashing surf, spectacular sandy beaches and abundance of wildlife. Enjoy the property’s stone walls and native plantings, enclosed cedar lined outdoor shower, or just sit and relax in an Adirondack chair overlooking Kings Bay and the open ocean. A great backdrop for coastal hikers, or those inclined to sit back and watch the world go by. The property has been architecturally designed with high ceilings, large windows and ocean views from every room. Italian light fixtures, stainless steel counters and appliances, custom window treatments and metal stair rails add a contemporary note to the design. Ideal for short escapes from the City, especially when the weatherman is predicting storms,
