Rare Find! Nearly 5 Acres Of Nature's Bounty In A Waterside Village. Enjoy Relaxing, Seaside Living, Every Day, In This Natural Paradise. Salt Air, A Large Tidal Pond Right On Your Property For Crabbing, Kayaking And Other Summer Fun Or Just A Short Walk To The Beach, Rich With Seabirds And Other Shore Life. If Escaping It All By Immersing Yourself In The Natural Wonder Of Living Near Water Is What Your Spirit Craves, This Property Is A Must See. Solidly Built And Perched Atop Huge Pilings, This Home Became The Permanent Residence Of The Current Owners When Nearly New. In The 18 Years Since They've Added Beauty And Function To An Already Magical Spot Creating Special Memories With Family And Many Friends Making It So Much More Than Just Their Home. It's The Passage Of Time And A Growing Family That Has Them Moving On. For A Buyer Looking For That Rare Experience Who Loves Nature And Simple, Seaside, Village Living Near Whatever You Need, This Is A Special Opportunity. While Many Folks Will Want To Keep This Retreat All To Themselves, Research By Others Determined The Possibility Exists For 2 More Lots Along The Pond. If You Like To Hold Onto A Piece Of The Oasis But Create A Cash Event By Subdividing When The Time Is Right For You And Your Due Diligence Detects Opportunity, This Becomes A Very Intriguing Property For Your Consideration. Two Grand, Elevated Decks Level With The Main Floor, Provide Long Views Of Waterways, Marsh, Fading Sunsets And The Large, Bountiful Garden Below. You Might Not Notice The Hammocks Strung Under The Entry Deck At First, But The Owners Say Guests Love That Space For Easy Outdoor Conversation Screened From The Sun By The Elevated Deck Above. The Home Becomes Larger Than You Expect As You Discover Each New Space At Ground Level And Above. The Combination Living, Dining And Kitchen Area Flows Easily With The Primary Bedroom Suite Having A Soaking Tub And Wide Stall Shower To Enjoy. The Sleeping Areas Are Separated By The Living Room With 2 Bedrooms And A Full Bath To The Left Of The Living Area. Someone With An Eye Towards Expansion Would See The Walk-up, Full-length Attic For Storage As A Candidate To Raise The Roof And Create Some Awesome Rooftop Bay Views. A 12 X 14 Sunroom Off The Kitchen Is A Cozy Place To Spend An Afternoon Or Step Outside To The 12 X 1 5 Covered Deck To Enjoy Afternoon Sunlight With Protection From The Intense Rays. Turn On The Party Lights And Enjoy The Evening As The Sun Goes Down. When The Owners Poured The Cement Floor Below The Elevated Home, They Thought Heavy Duty, 6”, 4000 Psi Concrete. Spanning The Full Underside Of The Home, This Created Many New Possibilities Other Than The Obvious Sheltered Space For Cars, Boats, And Equipment. At Ground Level You Will Find A 3-season Powder Room, A Summer Kitchen To Prepare All The Crabs You Will Be Steaming In Old Bay, An Eating Area, Extra Storage, And Easy Access To The Side Of A 12 X 28 Shed. The Shed Is Interesting In That They Raised The Floor So You Could Have Additional Storage Beneath It Yet Still Have Plenty Of Space For Lawn And Garden Items Above. I Mentioned Crabs, Didn't I? Cats Your Traps And Enjoy Them All Season Long. Check Out The Pictures Of Some Of Their Catches. Two Docks Provide Access To The Tidal Water For Kayaking, Canoeing Or Just Dangling Your Feet. There Are Date Trees All Around Ready To Bloom, Beautiful Calla Lilies Bursting Everywhere And A Large Garden Here They Grow Many Vegetables Including Corn. The Area To The Right Of The Pond Is Mostly Wooded And A Lovely Spot To Walk And Enjoy. I Am Still Discovering Intriguing Things About This House. It's Clean, Well Maintained And Designed For Everyday Living On The Water. If You're Looking For White Designer Cabinets And Granite Tops When You Move In, This Is Not For You. But If You Like The Idea Of Taking A Solid Home And Adapting It To Your Taste, This Could Be Your Personal Showplace. Why Not Come Experience It For Yourself!
