Marsh Cottage

 

Created as a Coastal Living Idea House, the Marsh Cottage fulfills our fantasies for a romantic vacation retreat. The upside-down floor plan saves the second-floor views for the main living spaces, leaving the first floor for easily accessible bedroom suites. With interiors designed by HGTV’s Linda Woodrum, the cottage is a showcase for the best of North Carolina coastal style.
