This large, rambling, older home is set marsh-side amidst palms and live oaks. With 8 bedrooms and 8 baths, plus numerous gathering areas, Cottage 188 is perfect for a casual family gathering. In the main house, the open floorplan downstairs features a casual den with family-friendly furnishings, a game table, and a baby grand piano. Adjoining the den is a more formal living room delineated by a beautiful patterned carpet coordinating with the pale green easy chairs and throw pillow accents. A decorative fireplace accents the room and blonde wood floors unite the areas, made bright and airy by walls of windows looking out to the pool and back yard.

Close by is a small but serviceable eat-in kitchen which is conveniently adjacent to a breakfast room with rattan furniture and a small desk. The formal dining room also adjoins the kitchen and features crisp white furnishings including a massive dining table which seats 10 beneath a glowing capiz shell chandelier. An unusual white grandmother clock anchors one wall of the dining room, with a skylight and French doors allowing in plenty of light.

Just off the kitchen is another casual den. This comfortable room is perfect for watching the flat screen television after dinner or choosing one of the numerous board games housed here. A convenient wet bar is along one wall. A small maid-style bedroom adjoins this den. For quiet reading a paneled library completes the downstairs. Beneath a beamed ceiling a fireplace of old brick is the focal point of the room, and a plush couch and leather club chair provide a cozy sanctuary.

The downstairs master features a serenely neutral color scheme with a king bed and sunlit alcove holding a dressing table. Upstairs are three additional bedrooms, each with bath, and each individually decorated with its own unique character.

Almost like a second house, the backyard wing of Cottage 188 overlooks the pool terrace and lawn. The ground floor provides a shaded area from which to relax and enjoy the pool and yard out of the sun, while upstairs are the final three bedrooms. Children will love the secret hideaway that is reached by a ladder to a tiny third floor. Even the adults will want to check out the original artwork adorning the walls!

With plenty of space for the entire group to gather as well as numerous private areas, Cottage 188 is a great choice for a large family or an extended group of family and friends.
