Situated in a tranquil setting on the Tred Avon River, this two-level Cape Cod-style home that boasts water views from every room is absolutely charming. So, it’s definitely not surprising that it sold in only two days for more than the asking price. The property, which was listed on September 25, 2017, sold, then closed on November 6, 2017.

“I thought this home was perfect for my clients,” says Jane M. McCarthy of Benson & Mangold Real Estate, the buyer’s agent for the property. “After seeing the house, they immediately fell in love with it and submitted an offer. The home is really appealing because it has so many
wonderful features, but most of all, it has the feeling of the old Eastern Shore, yet was updated and priced to sell.”

The beautiful waterfront home, which features an open floor plan and hardwood floors, includes a recently renovated kitchen with ample white cabinetry and high-end appliances. Designed for style and comfort, the spacious, light-filled living room features a cozy wood-burning fireplace and offers access to the delightful screened-in porch, located on the waterside of the home. This beautiful space, which faces west, provides an ideal setting to relax and enjoy the tranquil water views and lovely sunsets. The property also includes a unique detached bunkhouse with four built-in beds that serves as a guest house, a lovely stone patio perfect for outdoor entertaining, a beautiful sandy beach, a large yard, an outbuilding for storage, and a two-car garage.

“I first sold this property in 1999 and have always loved its location on the Tred Avon River,” says McCarthy. “The home was beautifully updated, and an outbuilding called the bunkhouse was added to accommodate extra guests. The half-acre lot also includes a beach and offers plenty of space for boats and kayaks, as well as outdoor entertaining. The screened-in porch is my favorite room because you can watch amazing sunsets, see boats sailing by, or just relax. Living in town while still having so much privacy is truly special.”
