The Channel House is an oasis in the middle of a less than satisfactory island. The house is historic with amazing extras, like gorgeous wooden floors and panels, that you won't see on any other home, including a full house wrap around screened in porch.The house is fully appointed with lovely furnishings and gorgeous landscaping. The pool is wonderful and very private. You have a lovely view of the channel from the back deck with easy access to the channel for boating or snorkeling (found a family of lobsters living in the wharf next door. My biggest concern with the house is that it only includes two lower level bedrooms with air conditioning. the main house rooms are likely comfortable enough for sleeping with the fans most months, but in the summer months, it's really too hot and muggy to sleep well in the upper bedrooms.
