Gorgeous waterfront property on tranquil and historic Onancock Creek, and only one block from the adorable town of Onancock. No wonder Budget Magazine recently voted Onancock 'The Coolest 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 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, outdoor food market, 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.
The house features free Wifi/ Internet and a brand new TV multi media room with dozens of HD Comcast channels and Internet apps! A Bluetooth enabled Stereo, allows for streaming of any portable device.
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 Mallard's, 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 by car), several places to charter boats in Wachapreague ('The Flounder Capital of the World', 15 mins) and in Cape Charles (30 minutes). 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.
There is nothing like the Eastern Shore, the largest stretch of undeveloped waterfront on the Eastern Seaboard. And The Shore House puts you in the heart of it all!
