Absolutely extraordinary setting – 1000 acres with seven miles of shoreline, two-thirds of the land undeveloped and owned by the Gibson Island Corporation, one third residential home sites.

This classic Gibson Island cottage reflects everything that makes life on the Island special. Located on a large corner lot with mature trees and extensive plantings (including thousands of daffodils in the spring, coreopsis in the summer, and colorful maples in the fall), the house is an easy walk or golf cart ride to Otter Pond and the Clubhouse and its amenities. Its screened front porch (“the best on the Island,” by some accounts) offers a view of Otter Pond as well as a gathering place for friends and family.
A unique feature of this home is its versatility. With six bedrooms (including two on the main level plus a guest room with a separate entrance), four and a half baths, a living room with wood-burning fireplace and an adjacent family/TV room, and a renovated kitchen that opens to a separate dining room and the large screened porch, the house easily accommodates 12 house guests. A large stone terrace off the dining room, complete with built-in propane burners and grill and a seating area for ten or more, make sit-down dinners for large parties easy. The house feels equally well suited for intimate dinners on the screened porch, movies in the family room, and separate (but not distant) places for teenagers and adults to read and relax. A beautifully planted backyard, complete with a showpiece Japanese maple. oaks, ginkgoes, dogwoods, redbuds, and crepe myrtles, is screened by two dozen hollies and river birches to create another area for recreation and relaxation. During the fall and winter, s’mores around the sheltered backyard outdoor fireplace and roaring fires in the living room make this home a refuge and an off-season delight.
With timeless finishes and furnishings chosen by Marika Meyer Interiors and a landscape plan designed by Fritz & Gignoux Landscape Architects, thoughtful design decisions characterize every aspect of this property. Arrangements can be made to transfer the house furnished, equipped, and walk-in ready. In short, this cottage offers the right buyer immediate access to the Gibson Island lifestyle.
