From the Zillow listing:


Whether looking for a vacation home that puts the ocean at your doorstep, an investment property that will rent itself, or the perfect place for your family to grow, this listing has the charm, amenities, and features for you. The open layout on the first floor gives plenty of day-to-day living and entertaining options while maintaining a cozy and intimate feel. The kitchen serves as a central hub for the family room, sunroom, dining area, den, and enclosed patio allowing your family to spend time together or spread out. Solar gains from the sunroom, partial radiant floor heating, and two working woodstoves, along with a dual-zone baseboard heating system, means the home is always the perfect temperature. Accessing the split staircase from the family room or den leads to four bedrooms and two full bathrooms on the second floor. The master bedroom and bath provide plenty of privacy, and a unique design utilizes airflow from the living area below. The rest of the space offers three additional bedrooms or a combination of bedrooms and a home office, depending on your needs. Situated on a half-acre corner lot surrounded by woods, this home provides a nature-focused tranquil setting, and the water views will inspire you to use the nearby beach access daily. This property includes a plum tree, a peach tree, two apple trees, two pear trees, and three low bush blueberries to compliment the established perennial garden and landscaping. Treat your friends to grilled vegetables from your garden while enjoying ocean views from the back deck. Then retire to the hand-laid stone patio for cocktails garnished with homegrown herbs, fruits, and berries.
