We quite like the Colonial Williamsburg vibe of this shingled cottage in the northern reaches of Wainscott. Plus, since it's set on five acres, it's quiet and private. The property has been on the market for months, though, so we wonder what the catch is. There's a charming painted kitchen with a fireplace, more fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom, wide-planked floors, and charming built-ins and pocket doors. In all, there are four bedrooms and 3.5 baths in 2623sf. Outside, the plot is 5.45 acres with pretty gardens. No pool, but plenty of room for one. Price seems fairly reasonable, too.
