Situated on Harris Creek on several acres of private, lush land and boasting serene water views, a rip rapped shoreline, and a private pier, this three-level colonial home with an eye-catching wood exterior design is an absolute gem—a peaceful retreat that offers all the delights of waterfront living. The property, which was listed on March 30, 2017, closed on December 29, 2017.

The home, which was renovated in 2006, is adorned with beautiful crown molding, exquisite hardwood floors, and stylish ceiling fans. A relaxing retreat, the living room features a cozy wood-burning fireplace and large windows that offer tranquil water views. The elegant kitchen includes ample white cabinetry, a center island, high-end, stainless-steel appliances, and ceramic tile flooring. An absolutely charming space, the sitting room, which offers access to the waterfront, provides an ideal setting to relax and simply enjoy the views. And the lovely master bedroom features a delightful waterside balcony—perfect for sipping a cup of coffee in the morning. 

The exterior spaces of this waterfront oasis are equally charming and further beautify the property, including a delightful screened-in porch, a Gunite heated pool, and a guest apartment located above the two-car garage that features a waterside balcony overlooking the pool. The garage is attached to the main house by a breezeway—a creative exterior design that immediately catches the eye. 

“My buyers were initially looking at a less expensive property, but they did not succeed in their bid,” says Cornelia C. Heckenbach of Long & Foster Christie’s, the buyer’s agent for the property. “They also realized that they were looking for more land and a property with a guest house. This home offered it all: the beautiful, long, private drive, the open land, the lovely waterfront, the beautiful guest apartment above the garage, and an in-ground pool. Plus, it did not really need an addition.”

“The property had been on the market for a while, and it was priced higher and then reduced. Since the main entrance was a shared driveway, there was no ‘for sale’ sign at the main road, so it was not very visible. That all worked to my buyers’ advantage. We all loved the farmhouse feel from the exterior and the interior open feel—all tastefully updated—the majestic trees along the waterside, and the private setting.”
