The beach cottage at 326 Pelican Flight on Dewees Island is right across the street from a windswept beach where you are likely to be the only one on the beach. Here’s an aerial of the location in context to the beach: the house is in the center right of the photo, on the marsh.
The driveway to the home brings you to a broad entry set of stairs, which you’ll climb under the gorgeous live oak to get to the gracious front porch.
Once inside the screens, you’ll be tempted to drop everything and sit back and rock on the lovely screened porch, relaxing to the sound of ocean waves and birdsong in the mature forest.
The open floor plan provides great gathering space for family and friends between the kitchen and family room, and a cozy wood stove anchors the area.
The kitchen is connected to the family room:
Off the kitchen, there is a small room that can be an office or overflow sleeping space.
And behind the kitchen, there are two bedrooms:
There is a “buddy bath” between them, but each side has it’s own sink and toilet, which can be closed off from the shower area by pocket doors, providing guests with a great amount of privacy.
A door in the bath leads to a lovely outdoor screened shower:
The second bedroom on the main level:
From the kitchen, you can take the elevator or the stairs to the top level, with the master suite and den area:
There’s an open landing to get to the den area, with marsh views. And a master suite with well-appointed bath area.
Every opportunity for space is maximized cleverly, like living on a boat. Built-in shelving and wainscoting give the house that airy, cottage feel.
Or you can enter the house through the open garage area, where you’ll find a screened workspace, outdoor showers, ample garage parking, and an elevator to get to the main level.
