Sea Cliff


251 Littleworth Lane


Frank Osborn Braynard, author of "One Square Mile: A Sea Cliff Sketchbook," describes the guesthouse on this secluded, one-acre property as the "enchanted cottage." It was built in 1928 on the Sweet Adeline estate, which belonged to Adeline and Philip Huntington. The cottage was designed with a slate terrace, stone walls and a vintage Dutch door. The interior features a paneled living room with a wood-burning fireplace, one bedroom, one bathroom and a kitchen. Sunsets are captured through west-facing windows. The renovated cottage, with its own garage, is set away from the main house -- an 11-room Colonial built in 1925. Adeline, who was the editor of the Sea Cliff News and founder of Glen Cove Hospital, designed the house with architect Walter Williams. The restored home features arches, moldings and spaces that relate to the original plan. It has a fireplace and wood floors and French doors throughout. There are four bedrooms and 31/2 bathrooms.
