Donna and Mike Harrington, both realtors, weren’t looking to buy a beach cottage. But when they spotted a tiny 1950s bungalow with a fantastic view of the Chesapeake Bay and a swimming pool, they knew it was too good a deal to pass up.
“The original one-story cottage had to be expanded to meet our needs, however,” says Donna.
She also helped Donna and Mike redesign the kitchen and build a deck and patio around the pool.
“Monkeys, palm trees and lots of natural rattan say tropical to me,” she says. “I was trying to capture my personal vision of paradise here in Dewey Beach.”
