The home rests on Lookout Pointe and is an icon of the area, according to the listing by Laura Bush-Kempf at eXp Realty.It is nautically designed both inside and out, making it feel like a playground in the 1950s and '60s, when Barbara Baum Freethy spent her childhood summers in the home, she told Insider.Baum Freethy told Insider her grandfather, William Baum, worked for the family insurance company, but he probably should have been an architect.While he was unhappy with his career, according to Baum Freethy, he loved sailing and owned several old wooden boats. Baum Freethy said William bought the land and designed a home shaped like a steamship emerging from the bluff. William built the cottage with help from his children and a friend of theirs who was a carpenter, according to Baum Freethy, who added that they completed the home in one year — by 1936.Baum Freethy said her cousins' families built their own cottages on the property and her family visited every summer growing up. Every morning, my grandfather would yell, 'time for a morning dip' before breakfast and we would run down, jump in the water, and come back up, Baum Freethy told Insider. Baum Freethy said she saw William the year before he died at the cottage, adding that he was reminiscing about the past following the death of his wife, Florence. He was just sitting up on the deck, looking out at sea, and he looked so sad, Baum Freethy said. And he said, 'I just miss the way it used to be. I miss my wife,' and he died soon thereafter.None of William's three children were in a place to take over the house when he died, but some of the interior still looks the same, according to Baum Freethy. The kitchen table has been there for more than 70 years, according to Baum Freethy.(Insider reached out to see if the home is selling with any furnishings, but did not hear back at the time of this story.)Baum Freethy said she's glad that the new owners kept the table and picture.There's a bedroom on the main floor, two bedrooms on the top floor, and two bedrooms on the bottom floor, according to the listing. When you would stand at the ship's wheel looking out of the bow of the ship, you just see water. You don't have the sense that you're up on a bluff, Baum Freethy said. So for children, it was fabulous to have this recreation of really being out on a ship.The whole scene completely recreated this feeling that you were out at sea, Baum Freethy said.One side of the bay would be calm, and the other side would be rough, depending on the winds, Baum Freethy said of the views from the home. And that was really fun for a kid.You can view the full listing at eXp Realty.
