Equal to the impressive nature of the home are the grounds and mature trees.|
Approximately 400' of water frontage on the high banks of Nassawadox creek, being navigable to the Chesapeake Bay. This saltwater creek is well known for its flounder, spot, and puppy drum fishing opportunities.
Located directly on the grounds is this par 3 hole, Southwest green and Tee Box with sand trap.
The channel has good access to the Chesapeake Bay. There is 4' at MLW at the dock with water, electric, and an electronic lift.

You maybe asking why the name Saltworks. Here is the story as told to me. In the early 17th century, the salt was harvested from the flats for preservation of oysters. Then, in the early 18th century the salt was harvested for the preservation of the soldiers' provisions. Today no salt is harvested, but the name remains commonly known. This is a southwest view.
The Eastern Shore calls its large bodies of water creeks and its smaller bodies of water guts. Seems a bit odd to newcomers, but it is as I say.
