This 1920s seaside cottage is seeped in charm and history.

The beachy style effortlessly balances modern bravura with its 90-year-old heritage and idyllic positioning on a private road overlooking an inlet to the bay.

“It has all the character of the old house without the maintenance,” said listing agent Bridget Elkin of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. “We used the word charming in real estate a lot, but this takes the cake.”

The three-bedroom Southold bungalow is flooded with light and features unobstructed 180-degree views of the water.

The house is well-equipped for unwinding or entertaining. Take a swim or launch a kayak off its 100-feet of private beach, play cornhole on the whimsical grounds or grow your own herbs and vegetables in the garden. The bluestone patio is the perfect place for gathering while the screened-in porch is the hideaway for an afternoon nap.

Inside is a cozy respite. The original wood floors and architectural details have been refurbished to bring out the home’s original craftsmanship.

“All the wood floors and molding are original to the home,” said Elkin. “You find that you can decorate with minimal furnishings and the house will still be styled because of its character. What is special about this house is that it has been enjoyed and cherished by families for generations.”

The formal dinning room has ample room for an oversized dinning table to enjoy as a fire burns in the stone fireplace in the adjacent living area. The kitchen has a spacious island and ample counter space for cooking, baking or making margaritas.

The home also features a first-floor master bedroom, detached garage, upstairs loft and outdoor shower.

The property is listed for $995,000.
