A Picture-Perfect Summer Cottage
A rarity in the rental market, the Porter Cottage is a fabulously renovated, picture-perfect summer home that grandly sits at the top of Ruggles Park overlooking the yacht club, boat anchorage, docks and the bay. This home had never been rented and is meticulously maintained and furnished by its owners. The Porter Cottage retains the charm and character of her period with all the updates one would wish for in this century. It will make the perfect vacation experience for a lifetime of wonderful memories in Bayside.
Features & Floorplan
Upon entering the property, you are welcomed by a large covered porch very well appointed with comfortable wicker furniture for both sitting and dining. Window boxes are overflowing with flowers along the decorative porch rails. You will enjoy this feature of the cottage as it gives you a birds-eye view of all the waterfront activity in Bayside including sailboat races that dot the background with white sails against the blue waters.
Entering from the kitchen, you will see an incredible amount of cabinetry for storage and a well-stocked kitchen full of dishware, pots and pans, counter appliances, gas cook stove and oven, and microwave oven and dishwasher. All surfaces are painted white along with wood ceilings and hardwood floors. A breakfast bar divides the kitchen from the elegant dining room.
The dining room has beautiful antique furniture and a large dining table that can seat six. A small writing desk is perfect for writing postcards or checking your email with your laptop or iPad (WiFi router). This room has two large windows making the room bright and inviting and hardwood floors provide a lovely contrast with the white painted ceilings and walls.
Just before entering the living room is a convenient downstairs half bath. Off the dining room to the front of the cottage is a very large living room, which faces the ocean. It has a beamed painted ceiling, hardwood floors and seating for at least 7 people. A large TV has a DVD player and satellite TV. From the living room, another door opens up to the expansive covered porch.
Heading up to the second floor, the solid oak staircase opens up to a spacious hallway that leads to three good sized bedrooms. The ocean-side bedroom has two double beds and a private bath/suite with an oversize shower. The room is also painted white with sloped ceiling, a closet and dresser. The other two bedrooms have king-size beds with dressers and closets. All floors are hardwood throughout the second floor. A large bath with oversize shower (no tub) is positioned between these two bedrooms.
Porter Cottage also has a full basement with room for your vacation toys as well as the washer dryer.
