Property Description:

Sited on a proximate point of land jutting out into the Choptank River, this 45+ acre gentleman's farm offers the best broad water sunset views on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The house sits one half mile from the county road providing extreme privacy with a combination of mature woods and farm fields. The 1700' +/- shoreline is completely rip-rapped with granite stone. The house contains approximately 5,000 sq ft of single floor living space. Four bedrooms and five full baths. Designed by a noted Annapolis architect Lon Overton and constructed in 1986 by Nuttle Builders. The house is heavily constructed to stand the elements with 6" exterior walls and extensive use of brick. The house has corian countertops and Koehler fixtures throughout. 1 Geo-thermal HVAC, 3 heat pumps, 1 wood burning and 1 gas fireplaces. Bailey built dock, riprapped shoreline and 3 1/2ft MLW. Private beach to launch small sailboats and kayaks/canoes. The farm has been improved over the years by the original owners as a great hunting farm with ponds and flooded impoundments fed by a separate well. The inground pool is heated and has a hot tub in the pool. Invisible Dog Fence. The garage attic could be converted into additional living space by dropping the ceiling in the 3 car attached garage. The property is high elevation and on the 500 year flood plan. The entrance gates can be accessed remotely. The open water view extends out the north of the Choptank River, across to the western shore of the Chesapeake, some 30 miles.
