If you can envision living in an ideal natural setting surrounded by acres of sandbars, seagrasses, ever changing tides, sandpipers etc, this is the property for you. You can experience this from inside the 1903 character house that has been thoughtfully restored to maintain charm and to optimize seaside and garden views. The interior downstairs living space flows well and the placement of windows and doors maximize light from the southern exposure. By walking out your front door you instantly have access to direct seaside experiences. Incredible beach walks, canoeing and kayaking amidst the bird life of Oxner Beach inlet, swimming in 5 to 6 feet of ocean water that has been warmed by the sun soaked sandbars. The dynamic quality of the natural environment offers exquisite peace, beauty, quiet and energy. This property includes a +/- 200 year old spacious Cape, presently used as a workshop, that could be transformed into a studio or quest house.
