Charming beach cottage offers private oasis from hectic world

A quintessential beach home just three-quarters-of-a-mile from the beach awaits you at 26 Morley Street in Charlestown! Set on a double lot with 10,000 square feet of property in the midst of an established, quiet neighborhood, is a charming gray shingled cottage with white trim, black shutters, and a salmon-colored door. Tall trees bordering the land provide privacy.

Park in the 4-car driveway and walk up the front paver-stoned path. Prepare to be wowed as you step inside this sun-bathed, remodeled home. Offering lots of space for special gatherings is a dining area on the left with an overhead nautical light and room for side tables and a corner china cabinet. White wainscoted walls that stretch three-quarters of the way up add to the charm. The other portion of the wall, which is painted a pale yellow, flows throughout this home – along with gorgeous laminate wood flooring.

A beautiful kitchen on the right features white wainscoted cabinetry and a stainless-steel refrigerator, gas stove, and dishwasher. Granite countertops and a sea foam-colored glass backsplash add the final elegant touches.

The cozy living room adjacent to the dining area provides space for a sofa bed, chair and electric fireplace with overhead television – the perfect spot to relax after a day at the beach, socialize with family and friends, or read a book.

A good-sized full bath off a nearby hallway features a modern stand-up shower, sliding glass window, and wall cabinets for storage space. Opposite the bathroom is a storage closet with shelving.

The nearby master bedroom offers unique touches. One wainscoted wall features a built-in green tin headboard. This delightful room is large enough for a side table and a wardrobe. A second smaller bedroom provides space for bunkbeds or a twin bed.

Enjoy summer breezes and sleeping on your large screened-in back porch. Make the most of the warmer months at Charlestown Town Beach – just three-quarters-of-a-mile away. Buy this 672-square-foot cottage with two bedrooms and additional sleeping space for guests in the living room and on the porch. Or, utilize this home as an investment property: use it occasionally and rent it out the rest of the time. Another inviting possibility is to make this delightful beach house your year-round retreat. Play badminton and volleyball in the backyard; toast marshmallows around the fire pit.
