Good things do come in small packages. Take this two-bedroom Victorian cottage, for example.
Built in 1904, this historic house sits on .10 of an acre in the private beach cottage community Campground Circle, which is within walking distance of both of Jamesport’s beaches.
“This house is completely unique; there’s nothing like it,” said Victoria Germaise of Douglas Elliman.
According to Germaise, Campground Circle was once a Methodist campground. Created in the mid-1800s, it was meant to be an affordable getaway from the city for church members. Originally a tent campground, by the 1850s church members began building summer homes on the property.
“Many houses have been handed down to family members through generations,” Germaise said.
This house has been totally restored and renovated with a new kitchen, new bathroom, an added bedroom, natural gas, public water and central air conditioning. Best of all, its ageless beauty has been saved for another generation to enjoy.
Set on .10 of an acre, the house and property are move-in ready and can be minimally maintained.
On the main floor is a porch, living room, dining room, eat-in kitchen, bathroom and one large bedroom.
“It has 10-foot ceilings, which is unusual for that vintage house,” Germaise said. “But that gives it a sense of airiness and space.”
The master bedroom makes up most of the second floor, including a Juliet balcony. There is also a small room that can either be used as a guest bedroom or dressing room.
Beautifully landscaped and surrounded by a white picket fence, the property includes a one-car garage and a small shed.
“There’s really a lot of privacy; you’ve got a lovely side yard and a nice little outdoor eating space,” Germaise said. “There’s not a lot to maintain.”
It is located just half a mile away from Miamogue Point Beach and Park in South Jamesport and a mile away from South Jamesport Beach.
Nearby attractions that are also less than a mile away include the Jitney stop, Jedediah Hawkins Inn, Grana, Duffy’s Deli and the new Main Road Biscuit Company. The new Bayview Inn and Restaurant is under a mile in the opposite direction.
“Just leave a bicycle at the house to bike to the beach or restaurants,” Germaise said. “It really is a very special place.”
