Tucked at the end of a cul-de-sac in the Tokeneke Association is a Cape Cod-style home with a private pond.

Perched high above Scotts Cove on Canoe Trail, the property is a short stroll to the water in a neighborhood ideal for walking or bike riding.

The community-oriented Tokeneke Association is a sought-after place for raising families, with its own beach, neighborhood police and neighborhood events.

As a part of the Tokeneke Association, the home's residents can enjoy the neighborhood-wide events like its annual winter cocktail soiree, Christmas caroling, ladies' tea at high tide and Lobsterfest in June.

The mid-century home has been renovated by architect Roger Bartels, who designed a spectacular octagonal-shaped sunroom with a wall of windows framing the serene pond and landscaping.

The sunken sunroom is drenched in natural light, wrapped in windows, and has a cupola in its bead board vaulted ceiling. A set of French doors accesses a private terrace looking over the 1.6 acres of property.
