Beach 'Cottage' Packed With Country Charm Asks $10.5M


Touted by the brokerbabble as "one of the most picturesque settings and water-views on Martha's Vineyard," this $10.5M listing in Chilmark, Mass., takes shabby-chic, country-ish charm—think floral upholstery, artfully worn checkered rugs, and other tokens from the "basket-as-decor" school of design—to a slightly batty (but still quite charming) level. Originally built in 1850 and "painstakingly remodeled by the current owners to "to reflect today's life style and amenities," the 2,488-square-foot Cliff Cottage comes with plenty of outdoor deck space, rolling croquet-ready lawns, a private beach, and, buried beneath the brick-a-brac, five sunny bedrooms. While a sleek, modernist beach house it is not, the cozy listing would be pretty ideal for Labor Day Weekend, so take a peek.
