Photographing from the boatyard dock across Deep creek to the home. Due to the massive tree the house cannot be see, its just to the left of the first dock. While I haven't depth sounded this section of the creek, only a year ago sold a home just a few houses to the left, they had 3 1/2' at MLW and I was told by the watermen in the area that this property waterfront is near 4' at MLW.
Love the fact that once you enter the home you see straight through the house through the windows from the all season porch and on to the sea. Its called cross ventilation here on the Eastern Shore, yet I do believe in present time its cool to say the home has Feng Shui.
A sweet corner of the kitchen where you can begin your day watching the birds enjoy there breakfast too.
Bright and spacious is the kitchen with original pine floors, butcher block counter and oodles of cabinetry.
Additional view of kitchen. Old fashion is the kitchen as well as being very functional.
Bit of charm at every turn.
Formal dining room is 16 x 16. It has the feeling the owners are folks who have traveled far and wide and shared their stories here with a table filled with bounty from the creek.
Under the mantel is one of the first pellet stoves ever made, conveys. Additional view of dining room.
Sitting room is 16 x 16'6" with fireplace and hardwood floors.
Each of the bedrooms are of equal size, 16 x 16, bright with excellent cross ventilation and original pine floors.
The 2nd bedroom, adjacent is a full bath. This bedroom is used as both studio and guest room.
View to the creek from the deck.
Here is the bulkhead, where you can tide up alongside for a short time, 5' at MLW. This in a swim from the property or by land a 1/2 block.
Mature gardens are all about, Peacan tree too. View of front elevation of the home. We became so comfortable in the all season porch that I did not photograph, too many people being ever so relaxed.
The fishing shack houses all the gear ever so neatly.
All the grounds you see here convey, totalling 3/4 of an acre.
The original outhouse stands as it was on the exterior, but now a garden shed.
This building is being used as a large workshop with a chimney to vent heating. I think it should be turned into a guest house. .
Kayaks are launch directly from the lawn. Many years this area was only referred to as Deep Creek, a village of watermen coming and going from Tangier a island in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay. Over the last 20 years folks from afar who appreciated it salty charm have been welcomed and called this area home. You will have the feeling of being cared for, neighbors always ready to give a helping hand. This property is flanked by docks. They do not belong to this property but the road does and that road access is needed by several homes. So while it is not written down the custom of sharing as continued, the owner uses the docks and the neighbors use the road. Everyone is happy.
