Local builder JT Wirth executed the cottage renovation, along with his mother Anne Sherry of Sag Harbor, who was the architect of the project. Paired with a relaxed beach chic design scheme, the result is a warm inviting home with a lot of personality.
The current owners share, “We wanted to give it some warmth, soft edges and a real personality. We started with light and access to the outside – opening up the side of the house with french doors off the kitchen and built the deck and outdoor area, which transformed the entire feel of the living / kitchen / dining space. Our favorite moment in the cottage is when those doors are open on a summers day and the inside flows right outside.”
The property is surrounded by privacy hedges, including giant leylands and aborvitae trees which have dramatic outdoor lighting already in place to enjoy while entertaining on warm summer nights. Most of the plantings are evergreen and will stay lush throughout the winter, keeping the privacy of the property year round.
