About This Home
SOUNDSIDE Avon- Pheasant Ct. (formerly Ask In Cottage) The location of this comfortable and family-friendly cottage, situated at the quiet southern end of Avon on a secluded cul-de-sac, offers the best of several worlds: less than five minutes’ walk from the beach, a one-minute drive from Ramp 38, entryway to year-round four-wheel-drive beach access beloved by fishermen, and poised at the northern tip of more than six miles of undeveloped National Seashore between Avon and Buxton—perfect for picturesque beach walking, and home to two world-class water-sport destinations on the soundside: Canadian Hole, a bucket-list location for windsurfers, and Kite Point, a international Mecca for kiteboarders. The cottage itself, a classic cedar-shake saltbox offers views of both the ocean and sound from the spacious, well-furnished upper and lower decks. The main level, sporting a fresh look this year with newly-laid bamboo flooring and a new paint has living/dining area with cathedral ceilings, a queen bedroom, full bath, and a spacious, well-equipped kitchen with pantry closet which opens onto a large screened porch with picnic table and access to the covered lower deck. The upper level has a king and bunk bedroom, a full bath, and access to the large upper deck; it also features a cozy loft area with double-bed futon/sofa and table and chairs for a quiet reading area, a lively card game, or a fourth sleeping space. The entry level has secure inside storage for all your gear, washer and dryer, and access to the enclosed outside shower. The shelling and fish-cleaning table and charcoal grill are next to the under-house parking area. Whether you seek a watersport or fishing destination, a quick walk to sundrenched days on the beach, the experience of long walks on a rare natural seashore, or just the endless hunt for the perfect shell—Askin Cottage has you covered.
