Located at the end of a bucolic cul-de-sac on almost two acres of land in scenic Magnolia, this vintage 1880’s shingle style home, which was once the summer residence of Captain Charles G.C. Thornton, exudes charm and harkens back to a more genteel time. The expansive wrap around porch is the perfect place to unwind after a busy day with a refreshing beverage while listening to the faint sound of the surf breaking on Magnolia Beach. Offering the utmost in privacy, but within minutes of the village, the house has been updated while maintaining original features such as custom woodworking, built-ins, window seats and multiple fireplaces. Highlights of recent updates include all exterior paint, efficient propane fueled boiler, split-type air conditioners, whole house water filtration system, several new Andersen windows and new insulation.
