Nestled on Island Creek in a picturesque, park-like setting, and boasting more than 280 feet of water frontage and serene water views from nearly every room, this two-level Cape Cod home is an absolute beauty—the quintessential waterfront dream home. The property, which was listed on October 2, 2017, closed on December 11, 2017.

As guests enter the home, they are greeted by an elegant foyer that offers a mere glimpse of the beautifully designed living spaces that await inside this stunning waterfront retreat. A main-level open floor plan creates a warm, welcoming atmosphere, and exquisite architectural detailing, such as crown molding and gleaming hardwood floors, add a touch of elegance. A relaxing retreat, the living room features a triple window—perfect for enjoying the water views—a cozy wood-burning fireplace, a built-in cabinet, and access to the rear yard. 

A foodie’s paradise, the chef’s kitchen, which flows seamlessly into the family room, includes ample cabinetry, sleek granite countertops, tile backsplash, high-end, stainless steel appliances, and recessed lighting. The charming breakfast area with a vaulted ceiling, two walls of windows overlooking the water and the pool, and tile flooring offers a peaceful setting to sip a cup of coffee in the morning or enjoy a meal before starting the day. And the family room features a cozy fireplace with a wood stove insert, a built-in cabinet, and sliding doors that lead to the delightful screened-in porch. 

Located upstairs, the master bedroom also offers water views and includes carpeting, a walk-in closet, two standard closets, and a stylish ceiling fan. And the spa-like master bath with a pedestal sink, a walk-in shower, a charming window seat, an interior linen closet, and tile flooring offers an ideal setting to unwind and let the stress simply melt away after a long day.

The home’s exterior features are equally luxurious and include a private pier with electric service, two slips for large sailboats or powerboats, and a lift for a smaller boat, as well as a waterside in-ground pool, a glass potting shed, two storage sheds, and lovely professional landscaping. 

“This was a rewarding transaction for me,” says Barb Watkins of Benson & Mangold Real Estate, the buyer’s agent for the property. “I was able to help find a beautiful, yet comfortable home for a family with teenage children who are looking forward to the water activities, such as fishing, crabbing, and boating, as well as enjoying a quiet, relaxing retreat away from the hustle and bustle of Washington, D.C.”
