Located on Bald Head Island’s South beach, the Mortimer Cottage has an open plan and a whimsical attitude.  If you look at the dog pen fencing under the house you will see it is shaped like rolling waves.  The bannister for the stairs is cut out to look like fish swimming among seagrass.  A south facing sunporch is recessed 18 inches so that you can see the water sitting down in the living room.
