Encompassing 4± acres, Prospect Cottage is situated in a spectacular, private waterfront setting on Gaunt Neck in Cushing. The beautifully constructed year-round home was designed by John Morris Architects with high-end finishes, and interior designed by British firm Hudson Homes & Interiors. An attractive barn is located next to the house and the property includes open lawn and fields, mature trees, well-maintained gardens, stonework, walking paths, and a total of 335± feet of accessible shorefront on the Meduncook River, a tidal estuary. Steps lead to the gentle rocky shore for swimming and kayaking; and a fire pit, picnic table for lobster dinners, hot tub and outdoor shower complete the setup for summer outdoor living.

The property is located in the Gaunt Neck subdivision, a neighborhood of fine residences that are accessed via a mile-long paved drive that creates the impression of being on an island, with road access.
