Nestled on Jack’s Point, with views north up Town Creek and the Tred Avon River, stands a stunning estate where waterfront delights abound. Redesigned and fully renovated under the supervision of award- winning architect Dr. Charles Burnette in 2005, the property is a waterfront paradise—complete with tranquil water views, lovely gardens, an upper-level deck, multiple patios, an in-ground pool, a private pier, two boat slips, a floating dock, and a guest house. The property, which was listed on August 2, 2017, closed on October 18, 2017.

The home features a spacious main-level open floor plan with floor-to-ceiling French doors that offer panoramic water views. Columned steps lead into an awe-inspiring all-year sunroom. This beautiful space—perfect for relaxing and enjoying the views—features three walls of floor-to-ceiling windows, a wainscot ceiling, ceiling fan, Italian designed hanging lights, glass doors that offer access to the yard, patio, and pool, and tile flooring. 

The living room, which boasts water views and includes a double-facing gas fireplace (that also serves the sunroom), floor-to-ceiling windows, classic columns, and hardwood floors. A relaxing retreat, the master bedroom features a center-beamed vaulted ceiling, ceiling fan, sconce lights, three motor-controlled skylights, gas fireplace, and doors that lead to the deck—an ideal setting to sip a cup of coffee in the morning while enjoying the views. 

The guest house, which includes a common room with combined kitchen, dining, and lounging space overlooking the pool, ample bedrooms and bathrooms, and a private yard, allows homeowners to accommodate visitors in style and comfort. 

“Selling a waterfront home on Town Creek is always a lot of fun,” says Chuck Mangold, Jr., the listing agent for the property. “I really identify with what attracts folks to such a property. We only had this listing for 15 days before we sold it. During that short time, I had nearly 10 showings, and seeing the property click with prospects as the perfect platform to enjoy the shore lifestyle was a blast.”
