Ensconced amid mature trees in the tony community of The Pines in Rehoboth Beach, The Enchanted Cottage lives up to its name with wide-plank oak floors, two woodburning fireplaces and a series of tranquil shade gardens.

It’s a neighborhood prized for its distinctive setting, a secluded pocket that exudes the aura of a private enclave yet is walking distance to the resort town’s bustling shops, bars and restaurants.

“The Pines is quiet,” says listing agent Amy Warick of the Debbie Reed Team. “It’s cooler, yet you can walk to dinner in town.”

The house is ideal for entertaining, with porches on both levels, as well as seating areas among the azaleas and ferns in the lush gardens. To expand the living space, Warick notes, the residents can swing open the French doors.

The backyard is fenced for enhanced privacy and is a plus for pet lovers. There’s also a garden shed and an outdoor shower, a must for any coastal cottage.

The cottage offers mostly custom-made furniture created by local artisans, which will be sold with the house. (The antlers displayed above the second-floor fireplace are not included.) The first floor is more formal, featuring crown molding, decorative columns and custom built-ins flanking the fireplace. The master bedroom, also on the first floor, boasts fairy-tale garden views.

In an elegant twist on cottage style, the second-floor porch offers a vaulted barrel ceiling of tongue-and-groove wood above a large eyebrow window. It’s furnished with rustic chairs and a table crafted from twigs.    

“It’s incredibly well-maintained,” Warick says, noting the home’s new HVAC system and updated bathrooms with modern amenities.

Among the cottage’s many charms is its versatile layout. Looking for grandmother’s quarters or to rent out part of your home? The cottage can readily be repurposed as two separate residences, one upstairs and one downstairs.
