On a charming corner in the historic district, you are immediately greeted by a white picket fence and lush front yard landscaping. Just inside the front gate and brick walk is your welcoming front porch, a perfect location to sit on a rocking chair and watch the fishermen and neighbors come and go toward the docks.
With a red metal roof and dormered cottage-style exterior, much more is revealed upon entry. Inside (at the helm of local architect Linda Balzac), no expense was spared in restoring the historic aspects of the property while expanding the home toward the marsh with thoughtful additions.
At the core is the great room, which features a chef's kitchen with a spacious island set amidst a sitting room and dining room. The open space benefits from large vaulted ceilings with dramatic beams and shiplap displaying strategic craftsmanship and design. Sweeping views of Shem Creek dominate.

With the majority of your square footage on the main level, enjoy single-story living with the perfect flow for entertaining. Wake up to views of Shem Creek from the primary suite on the main level, with sliding doors to a private deck. Also located on the first floor is a guest bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. Additionally, there is a cocktail lounge, an office, a large laundry, and a half bath on the main floor. Upstairs there are two bedrooms with a shared bathroom as part of the renovated, but historic structure. The whole home benefits from a lush landscape, marsh views, and an abundance of light with easterly exposure in the front and westerly exposure in the back.

Adjacent to the great room is a spacious porch featuring dramatic marsh views and a wood-burning fireplace. A private courtyard is a serene hub connecting the house, porch, and garage. The oversized two-car garage includes a one-bedroom apartment above and a marsh-front artist's studio below as well as a private deck.
