About the Property
5 bedrooms, with water view, 3.5 Baths, large porches, kayaks, motor boat
Recently decorated top to bottom by award-winning design team JRML of Norfolk, VA, The Shore House is a gorgeous, peaceful escape. The huge covered deck stretches 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. 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 a town wharf. 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.
Our dock moors a 20 foot Maycraft motor boat, canoe and kayak. These can take you in 15 minutes to remote state-protected beaches where you will be the only ones around for miles! At Malards, 5 minutes away more kayaks can be rented as well. The dock is also great for crabbing. The back yard is large enough to accommodate large picnics, weddings, family reunions, sports and games.
Within driving distance are two golf courses in Cape Charles (30 minutes), the famous Chincoteague/Assauteague preserve where horses roam on the beaches (60 minutes), several places to charter boats in Wachapreague ('The Flounder Capital of the World', 15 mins) and in Cape Charles. Wallops Visitor Center, the up and coming star of the NASA rocket launching pads, is a 40 min drive north. There are also two grocery stores, fast food restaurants and other restaurants within a five minute drive.
In addition, our summer, full-paying guests will have access to the amenities at the Eastern Shore Yacht and Country Club (15 min drive). Guests of ours may use the pool for only $5.00 per person and may pay to use the golf course, dining room etc. This is a very special and generous offer on behalf of the country club.
There is nothing like the Eastern Shore, the largest stretch of undeveloped waterfront on the Eastern Seaboard. The Shore House puts you in the heart of it all.
Keywords: Waterfront, luxury, large, new, spacious home, motor boat, kayak. Perfect for a family reunion or getaway.
