Property Description:

Inspired by the traditional farmhouses and chateaus of France's Normandy region, this enchanting property is situated along the shores of picturesque Somes Sound. Built for the Wharton family between 1920 and 1922, the home and grounds have been lovingly maintained ever since. No details have been overlooked-- from the imported hand-made French tiles in the entry to its cypress walls and the iron pieces hand-created for the property's ten fireplaces. Wasgat Cove is set on three well-maintained acres, with timeless rock and water gardens (in Smithsonian Archives of American Gardens by invitation) and three lighted paths leading to the water's edge. For those who enjoy the sea and salt air, it also offers a dock and three deep water moorings. Wonderful for entertaining, this captivating summer home proves that romance and informality make a perfect match!
