Mary Cassatt House
Allison Ramsey Architects of Beaufort, SC has perfected the style and feel of the Coastal Victorian vernacular, and this delightfully rendered Cassatt Cottage is just one more sterling example.
At a little under 2,000 square feet, it might sound a bit undersized, but pound for pound few homes pack as much punch. It features three bedrooms and a rooftop terrace that looks toward the beach and the Chesapeake Bay beyond. The wide and welcoming front porch, enclosed back porch and light and airy interiors make it ideal for living the good life on the Eastern Shore. Plus, it’s only a short walk from Bay Creek’s two-mile private beach and the new Beach Club and Fitness Center.
Mary Cassatt (1844-1926)
Mary Cassatt was an American-born artist who left Philadelphia for Paris at the age of 22 over the objections of her father, a successful real estate investor and speculator. She spent most of her life in France, where she was a prominent figure among the Impressionist painters of the last half of the 19th Century. She was a fiercely independent thinker and feminist before the term gained currency, and is considered a role model by leaders of the Women’s Movement. She is connected to Cape Charles through her brother Alexander, who plotted the route of William Scott’s rail line from Pocomoke, MD to its southern terminus at Cape Charles Harbor.
Good architecture has a timeless quality that transcends style and period.
