This beachy Cape Cod offers low-maintenance living just a short wander from Willard Beach. The traditional first-floor layout includes two bedrooms, and a full bath finished with tile designs inspired by the ocean down the street. The second floor has been renovated into a first-class primary suite: large bedroom with built-in storage; a generous studio or sitting room; two walk-in closets; and another custom-tiled full bathroom. Throughout, you'll find a seashore color scheme of whitewash, green and blue, along with whimsical ceramic switch-plates by local artist Laurie Spugnardi, and door pulls fashioned from smooth stones. The hardwood floors on the first level are protected from beach sand by a light coat of paint. The rear deck adds a huge, outdoor room, with a retractable awning, and handsome composite decking spread across two levels. The backyard perennial beds merge into a wildscape of neighboring backyards, home to flocks of birds and butterflies. More perennial plantings, including black current bushes and native flora, ring the house and spread over the front lawn.Extra storage space is plentiful, both in the newer garage, and in the spacious, dry basement. Currently, one bedroom is used as a formal dining room. The second floor could be divided into a pair of bedrooms. This house offers the flexibility to support one-floor living, home offices, comfortable guest space, and more.With a top-notch gas heating system, and a long-lasting metal roof, this spotless home is more than move-in ready: It's stay-forever ready.
