Birdsong, a Storybook Cottage by the Bay. Nestled in a quiet community of 12 homes, Birdsong is situated to offer big Bay views. From the house, the cottage gardens will draw your eye down the lawn to the backdrop of the Bay. Sit on the sofa in the living room or prepare dinner in the kitchen and take in it's everchanging beauty. Watch sailboats, giant cargo ships and cruise ships. Observe the day to day workings of the tugboats, crabbers and fishermen or watch sailboats as they glide by.
Renovated 7 years ago, with a nod to maintaining it's many charms, this beauty is ready for you . Original maple floors, dual heating/AC zones, arched doorways, new windows, appliances, a stainless steel lined chimney ready for a wood stove, custom cathedral ceilings and tiled baths. Go through the unassuming door leading to the upper level to discover 2 lovely and characterful bedrooms, sitting area and full bath. A heated/cooled bonus room offers more storage or could be finished as a cozy play space for little ones.
Behind the house there is a brand new 2 car Carriage House style garage with 9' wide doors, 10' interior height and over 400 sf of light filled bonus room space above.
The charming 10' x 16' shed provides additional storage and with nearly 3/4 acre there is plenty of room to park a boat, RV or 8+ cars on the gravel driveway around the garage.
The charming gardens are just waking up and will put on a show through out the year to compliment the home. Stroll the property and hear the call of the osprey nesting nearby or watch for the Bald Eagle that perches in the trees behind the house.
