This beautiful waterfront home has a unique “H-shaped” plan! Hence the name “H-House.” This was a custom designed and built house by its original owners in 1959, making it a true Mid-Century custom home. You will find charming and artful details, such as classic wood paneled walls in the kitchen and sitting porch (which acts as a dining area).

The first thing you will notice when you walk in are the impossibly large windows in both the Primary Bedroom and the Living Room, embracing the view from floor to ceiling!

The two private bedrooms are generously large and isolated to their own ‘wing’ of the house. The owners built in beautiful flagstone floors in the entry hall and sitting porch, and the present owners installed cork flooring in the main living room area!

Other features include:

1). Some of the original appliances remain in the kitchen, including a counter-mounted stovetop (notice the
copper-colored backsplash tiles) & two charming wall-mounted ovens.
2). The kitchen is punctuated by a luxury modern refrigerator that every homeowner would love!
3). You’ll enjoy having the original “Dutch Door” which leads from the sitting room to the side-yard of the house.
4). A modern washer/dryer setup is in the utility room, and there is a relatively new water heater as well.

The overall size is 55-feet across and 40-feet from water side to entry side, so please plan on this house being moved to a waterfront lot or very close to a barge site.

The garage does not come along with the house due to width issues.
