About the Property

Large Historic home on 8.5 acres

This large beautiful home with 3 outdoor porches welcomes guests to a lovingly restored interior by the artist owner, who fell in love with Hooper's Island and now resides on the island just a few miles away.

Envision yourself gazing out the window,watching the sunset with a cup of hot cocoa in hand, as fat snowflakes drift lazily through the air.

Every room restored and decorated with fine furnishings hand selected by the owner. Hardwood floors throughout oriental rugs,arched doorways and beautiful glass French doors in living room and dining room area.
Each room is finely appointed and offers all the comforts and ammenties of home, including a washer and dryer in a full size laundry room mudroom! The living room has Flat screen HD television and DVD player and stereo systems.
A great home to host your family reunion get together. The kitchen is large and there are lots of dining spaces .
We have a group of artist's that like to come and Pleinair Paint for a few days. Sunrise or sunset this is an amazing place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle.
Book clubs and photo clubs travel here frequently. If you love to ride motorcycles or bicycles this is the place to ride your bikes for miles without traffic, a scenic route the entire way.
Fishing and Hunting throughout each season of the year bring your buddies and set up camp at this homestead there's plenty of fish and game.
If you want to come by boat there's Jones Marina right across the street within walking distance.

The first floor has a large bedroom suite with two queen beds, a first floor bath with a large old fashioned ball and claw foot soaking tub.
The second floor has 5 bedrooms and 2 baths with showers. This home has views from every room and loads of charm and character. It was a residence and office of Doctor Mead who was the island's doctor. Many residence recall going there as a child to be seen by the good Doctor.

The side porch off the kitchen can accomodate a large gathering. Hydrangeas and bluebird boxes surround the home, the large ground that surround the home are great for volleyball,softball or a game of kickball!
A Kayak on site Hooper's Island is one of the best places for Kayak lovers Honga River border's the home's property and the Chesapeake is close by.

Bring your crab pots for steaming fresh crabs there are locations to purchase fresh or catch your own. This is a seafood lovers paradise for fresh seafood most of the eastern seaboard's crabmeat comes from this region. There is a marina 6 miles south Rippons,with public boat slip and pavilion to launch your vessel with access to Honga and Chesapeake.
The night sky provides a blanket of stars and a rare opportunity to view constellations.You may get lucky on a clear night and see the milky way!
