“Well, I certainly have seen faraway places. Maybe it is time to find my place by the sea,” Miss Rumphius declares in Barbara Cooney’s beloved children’s book. This quaint Northport cottage, which conjures the Lupine Lady’s place with its weathered shingles, sloping roofline, and aerial water views, makes us want to do the same. Built in 1880, the house features rustic crisscrossing beams, whitewashed walls, whimsically painted floors, and a living area with wraparound windows that frame the cove and its sunsets.
