Approaching the rock gateway entrance as you drive up along the causeway, it becomes apparent that an exclusive seaside enclave of properties comprises Marvin’s Island. A rare inland offering, this beautifully sited seasonal/year round contemporary home is on the south western slope, affording spectacular afternoon natural sunlight.

Comprising three levels of Interhab design living space, the plan features four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, 3220 square feet of total living area, and two single garages.

The ground floor open concept living dining area with a current kitchen layout enables a cohesive environment for entertaining. Additionally, there is a master bedroom with sitting area, private deck, and ensuite and (the owners favorite) sunroom flooded with oodles of warmth and light.

A lookout from the upper level loft accentuates the exposed beams, skylights and vaulted ceilings. The space is currently a craft room with an additional guest bedroom and ensuite. The lower level two bedroom in law/nanny suite is a very functional addition providing extra privacy.

A one third acre landscaped lot backs onto MIOA (Marvin’s Island Owners Association) community trails and woodlands for hiking, or take advantage of deeded ocean access, enabling a kayak launch. If sailing is your pleasure, keep a tender, and anchor a mooring.

A short ten minute drive, kayak, or sail by sea, come celebrate life in Chester where everything is possible, including theatre at the Chester Playhouse, latte’s at the Kiwi Café, fine dining at Whitegate, sailing at the Chester Yacht Club, tall tales at the Focsle Tavern and sports at the Chester Tennis & Golf Clubs (within area for membership).
