Gorgeous waterfront property directly overlooking expansive Onancock Creek, largest of the Chesapeake Bay tributaries, AND only one block from the adorable town of Onancock. No wonder Budget Magazine recently voted Onancock 'The Cooolest Small Town in America!'
Recently decorated top to bottom by award-winning design team JRML of Norfolk, VA, The Shore House is a gorgeous, peaceful and escape. There is no TV, landline or electronics at The Shore House. There is, however, a huge covered deck stretched along the back of the house overlooking the water where you can watch the herons, egrets and osprey to your heart's content. There is also a library tucked amidst the four upstairs bedrooms that overlooks the water and is fully stocked with a wide variety of books. For the few rainy days there is a TV for movie-watching, board games and ITunes. If you want more action you are a short walk from the town of Onancock which has antique stores, wonderful restaurants, a movie theater, a drama theater, a gourmet food/wine shop as well as the town warf. Park your car and leave it!
The house was built in 1999 by a builder for his family and therefore the lay-out is bright, spacious and well designed. The first floor of the house accommodates the master bedroom/bath suite, a full laundry room, a fully equipped kitchen a large family room with a game table, a formal living and dining room. The second floor has two kids rooms with two twins each and a jack 'n jill bath as well as two queen rooms that have a separate bath.
