Come see this waterfront, country home on 3.64 secluded acres with over 600 feet of shoreline and a southern exposure along Fishing Creek off the Little Choptank River. Numerous windows throughout provide expansive views of the large cove with active osprey platform. Geese, ducks, herons, bald eagles and other birds and wildlife abound on this exceptional property, only about 10 minutes from shops and restaurants in Cambridge.
Custom built in 1992, this “upside down” house is ideal for casual living with an open floorplan on the 2nd floor. The Great Room with windows everywhere has a wood-burning fireplace with Moravian Tileworks surround, vaulted beamed ceiling and wood flooring. Custom maple cabinets in the kitchen compliment the hand-painted Eastern Shore themed tile backsplash. For the nature-lover who loves to cook, there is a gas range and an electric oven and the over-sized island is perfect for food prep and/or seating. Enjoy spectacular views of all the year-round wildlife activity from the Great Room and the 2nd floor screen porch over looking the water as well as from the 2 composite decks. Fiber-Optic internet service is available and can be installed.
The 1st floor Master bedroom with water views has a garden window and en suite bath, with corian countertop and dual sinks. The guest bedroom has a private waterfront patio. Pennsylvania Bluestone in the entrance hallway is easy maintenance. The utility room has great workbench space and a laundry tub. There is considerable flexibility to use rooms on all levels for an office, den, rec room, in-law suite or large master suite with private entrances. The 3rd floor loft with roof window is generous bonus space and there is a large separate attic for even more storage. The ceiling fans throughout supplement the 2 HVAC systems. The home was designed with an elevator shaft for the installation of a future elevator.
This property presents many options for outside activities. Crab or fish off the dock which has a boat slip and separate lift with about 2.5' depth MLW. Oysters grow along the shoreline which is stabilized with spartina grass and 7 stone groins. There is an in-ground koi/goldfish pond by the front walk and a 1/4 acre natural pond with a small island out in the field. There is plenty of room for a swimming pool. There is also an 1811 graveyard.
The 35'x35' detached 2-3 car garage has a cement floor with ample workshop space and large storage areas.
The 25'x30' fenced (6' high) elevated vegetable and/or flower garden is deer-proof because of the raised beds (over 2' high) inside. An adjacent shed with ramp and windows keeps garden equipment handy.
This unique property with numerous, diverse outside features and significant interior possibilities has never been on the market before. You don’t want to miss it!
