What: Dish Calm is waterman’s slang for calm water. It’s the name of this picture perfect, year-round getaway cottage, built by designer/builder David Sutphen for his own use. Solidly constructed (40-year architect grade roof shingles, top of the line double-hung windows), with delightful architectural details throughout, it fits right in, both size-wise and looks-wise, to this charming little town, but it offers a big step up from the usual shore cottage. From the front door, you see all the way through to the breakfast room at back and the water beyond. Living room, with fireplace, is to the right. The kitchen is spacious and cozy at the same time, with a raised hearth fireplace. Custom cabinetry and exposed shelving painted Seasalt blue. Fun fact: heart pine floors throughout the house come from the old Waverly post office. Around the corner, a built-in desk and book cases lead to the high-end mudroom, with its 6’ long farm sink. There’s not a bit of wasted space here, which is part of its great charm. A nice sized master bedroom and a second bedroom are upstairs, along with the sleeping lofts, guaranteed to wow any kid worth his/her salt. A GE remote security system allows you to control heat and central a/c from your mid-week home or office.
