The house was built in 1936 by a Captain Cooper, a retired master mariner, who wanted to see water from each room in the house.  It was constructed using wood from the Cunard liner RMS Mauretania.  Some of the original fittings are still in evidence in the kitchen, hallway and a wooden seat in the front porch.
