Chincoteague house description

Enjoy what nature has to offer in this quiet but active resort island on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. The atmosphere is a relaxed one yet there is an extensive amount of activities for vacationers. From surf, bay or offshore fishing to kayaking, sunbathing, bird watching, hiking and biking nature trails, picking clams, oysters and crabbing for the famous blue crabs in the surrounding waters. The Island is home to many well-known painting and decoy-carving artists and has a variety of craft shops for browsing and taking home souvenirs.

La Maison Bleue, is a contemporary home centrally located 1/2 mile to downtown and 2 miles to the Assateague bridge and beach road. It is nestled in a quiet setting overlooking a pond teeming with ever changing wildlife: blue and green herons, mallards, ibis, kingfishers, skimmers, killdeer and more. You may witness a brood of wood ducks dropping from the nest guided to safety by their mother. Two screech owls have nested in one of the two nest boxes in past years. The colorful kingfisher visits the pond throughout the day for his meals. We often see deer strolling around the pond from our living area.

Our favorite room in the house is the gourmet kitchen with upgraded amenities: SS double oven, double dish drawer, side by side refrigerator and 5 burner gas cook top inviting you to create your delectable recipes while sipping on your favorite beverage. A deer might be in sight waiting patiently to cross the yard to the safety of thick woods in the back of the house. French doors lead to a well appointed screened porch. Great for dining, reading or just observing wildlife in and around the pond.

Sunbathe in privacy on the large exterior deck or relax on the ground level patio in the shade of trees. Refresh yourself in the enclosed outdoor hot shower after a day at the beach. Prepare your catch of the day at the cleaning station and BBQ your favorite food or steam fresh caught crabs, clams and oysters on a large gas burner. Roast marshmallows in the chiminea and reminisce about the day’s events while being serenaded by the sounds of nature’s creations.

The spacious and bright living room has floor to ceiling windows overlooking the pond giving a feeling of outdoor living. Relax on very comfortable modern leather sofas and enjoy your favorite show on a flat screen HDTV/VCR.

The open floor plan connects the living room with a formal dining room. Dim the chandelier lights and enjoy a memorable dinner with your loved ones while listening to your favorite music with our docking station for your electronics.

The Master bedroom has a private bathroom with shower, a closet organizer for your belongings. Dream in a California king size bed fitted with Egyptian cotton sheets or read in a comfy leather chair. A lovely crib is also in the room for your infant child. In the morning you will likely awake to the quacking of Mallard ducks waiting for a handout of corn. Corn is provided in a container under the house.

The guest bedroom has a queen size bed with a firm mattress for comfortable sleeping and a closet organizer.

The study/bedroom features two twin size beds and a queen size convertible futon bed to accommodate all guests. The corner desk for your laptop will facilitate keeping in touch with friends and family with Wi-Fi access. A bookcase is filled with books and games for your pleasure.

The second full bathroom is shared with these two bedrooms.

The full size washer and dryer will serve you well at your convenience.

Keep cool with covered parking under the house. The spacious area around the house can accommodate several vehicles, a boat trailer or kayaks.

A secured storage room under the house is for your bikes and other personal belongings. Crabbing lines and nets are there for your use

A nature lover’s delight!

A paradise for birders!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: Richard retired after 30 years from Federal Government and 10 years with private industry. I worked for a large telecommunication firm for 25 years. We love the outdoors and have hiked many trails in the Swiss Alps, the famous Bessegen mountain in Norway and the Grand Canyon. Cooking is our passion and savoring the famous Chincoteague oysters and clams while sipping a glass of Muscadet wine with fresh bread by Richard was always a treat. This remains true with picking crabs shared with friends and neighbors on the patio. Richard was known in Chincoteague Island as “the bread man” He shared many of his creations with friends on the Island.

                      Why the Owner Chose Chincoteague:
                      As youngsters, Richard and I were raised near the water. Richard from Salem, MA and I from a small fishing village on the Brittany coast of France. Growing up, we both learned to fish, crab, clam and discover the treasures of the sea. While residing in the Washington, DC area, we spent most weekends camping at Maddox Campground. We both love the peaceful, island life in Chincoteague. After purchasing a building lot our dear Mennonite friends from PA helped make our dream house, 'La maison bleue', came true. The house was completed in 2004. We have divided our retirement living between Chincoteague and Europe, the best of both worlds. We were privileged to become grandparents and our priority now is to be near Laurel, our 5 year-old, granddaughter living in San Diego, CA. We treasure our new life in San Diego near our family but plan to make return visits to Chincoteague Island.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      La maison bleue is centrally located on Chincoteague island, within ½ mile to downtown, local supermarket, shops and galleries and 2 miles to the Assateague Island bridge. The 3 mile ride to the beach is a delight for nature lovers. Sika deer are often seen grazing on the road side, delmarva squirrels, herons, egrets, ibis, ducks, gulls, shore birds and others can be spotted along the way. The famous wild ponies are mostly observed in the marshland from the road side. Bike the 3.5 mile wildlife loop, you may see a pair of eagles that nest nearby. Cross the beach road to the Woodland trail where ponies can be seen grazing on the marshland or continue to the beach. Walk to the Chincoteague Pony Centre on Chicken City Road, get acquainted with the ponies and enjoy the activities and shows. Explore the Island of Chincoteague while riding an electric street cart or a scooter. Play miniature golf in the evening after a hot day at the beach. Challenge a friend on the tennis court or shoot basket balls at Memorial Park. You can fish or crab from the park, great for children. Enjoy a picnic in a designated area with lovely views of the Lighthouse and the bay. Dine and savor the local seafood at one of the nearby restaurants. Do not leave the island without a visit to the Island Creamery for a taste of freshly homemade ice cream. Your camera should now be filled with memories of your stay at our home. Au revoir et Merci de votre visite.
