The quintessential cottage with a water view could be yours at 19 Fifth Avenue in Charlestown.

Rock on your front porch and take in the hustle-bustle of summer activity and the tranquil view of Green Hill Pond. It’s the epitome of sea side living! Park your car in the one-car garage or four-vehicle driveway laden with fresh sea shells, and leave it there all weekend!

Walk to the opposite side of the street to reach your dock at Green Hill Pond for a day of kayaking or boating. You’ll also enjoy fishing, boating and clamming in nearby Ninigret Pond, which provides access to the Charlestown Breachway. Experience these activities, as well as boogie boarding, surfing, and swimming at Charlestown Beach. 

A short stroll in another direction brings you to a picturesque wood-planked pathway with tall phragmites and overhanging trees. Follow it to Creek Bridge, Shelter Cove Marina, Johnny Angels Clam Shack, and the Kayak Centre.

Situated within the Sea Lea Colony District, this home is clad with beige vinyl siding, blue shutters and a lime-green door, which means its exterior will require very little maintenance.

A flat front yard leads to split-rail fencing surrounded by shrubbery. Enjoy entertaining in the private backyard lined with sea grass, hedges, arborvitaes and other shrubbery on all 3 sides. Two large, 2-tiered decks offer ample space for lounge furniture and a dining area for alfresco meals. Enter through the front door and discover a beautifully-appointed home with a coastal atmosphere. Step into the light-and-airy living room with multiple windows and tile flooring. A good-sized bedroom with double closets and wood-laminate flooring flank each side of the living room.

A doorway and huge wall opening connect this room to the remodeled kitchen, which is beautifully designed with stained-wood countertops, fabulous overhead lighting, and wainscoted cabinetry. A cozy nook with built-in seating and underneath storage is simply charming. Appliances include a refrigerator, dishwasher, and new stainless-steel gas stove. Blue glass hardware against the soft-close, white cabinets (which include a pantry) adds the finishing touch that really makes this room pop. A large stackable washer and dryer are conveniently located off to the side. So you can prepare dinner or watch television, while doing laundry and watching children – all at the same time. Talk about multi-tasking.

A smaller wall cut-out on the opposite wall enables you to see and talk to family and friends in the large 4-season room room with tile flooring, two walls of windows, and a Vermont Castings propane gas stove to keep you warm and cozy. A glass door leads to the rear decks for sunning, outdoor dining, and entertaining.

Nearby, is a full bath with dramatic dark blue walls and white accent pieces, as well as a third bedroom.

This stunning beach house feels so spacious with good-sized rooms. It is hard to believe it is only 900 square feet!

With fans in every room, enjoy the feel and smell of ocean breezes circulating throughout the home. Interior cleaning is also easy with laminate wood flooring in the 3 bedrooms and tile flooring throughout the rest of the home.

Built in 1958 on .11 acres with a 1-car garage, this 3-bedroom, 1-full bath cottage features a remodeled kitchen, electric-baseboard heat, a new hot water heater, propane tank, water filtration system, and light fixtures. Additionally, this home has a water system for outdoor plants and a septic system, as well as a new walkway and sea shell driveway. Plus, there is an enclosed outdoor shower in the backyard and the roof is only 8 years old. Store extra items in the garage and attic.

Now, the only thing left to decide, is do you want to live here year-round or utilize it as a vacation retreat? Located within a highly desirable summer neighborhood, you could also rent it out weekly for $1,600.

Revel in knowing that you live close to many spectacular beaches for swimming, surfing and walking, as well as numerous nature preserves. You’re also close to year-round cultural activities, train stations, Interstate-95, entertainment, and restaurant/shopping venues.

The listing price for this move-in ready beach house at 19 Fifth Avenue in Charlestown is $549,900. There is also a $150 annual fee to help the Sea Lea Colony Association maintain its private roads.

Act now and start making new memories this summer with family and friends at this charming cottage near the sea with beautiful views of Green Hill Pond.
