Charming and secluded waterfront home located just off the scenic Choptank River with 1.1 acres and 200 ft. waterfront on Indian Creek! Renovated and enlarged home has unobstructed water views from Andersen picture windows and a large Florida room. This eastern shore hideaway is complemented by a 550 sq. ft. in-ground plaster pool surrounded by a brick and concrete patio and a cedar shed housing equipment and patio furniture. The 2,400 sq. ft. home has been designed to be a low maintenance year-round residence and includes many customized finishing touches to make the interior cozy and livable. These include solid oak flooring in the dining room, old growth yellow pine flooring in the bedroom/study, two large roof windows with roller blinds, and beautiful varnished natural wood trim and doors throughout. The modern kitchen has custom cherry cabinets and granite counter tops, a 4-person breakfast bar, and floor tiles in the kitchen, utility room, and downstairs bathrooms. A heat pump system is supplemented by separate electric baseboard heaters and a high efficiency Jotul cast iron wood burner stove. An array of 16 Solar Panels (output 4.16 KW) reduce utility costs. There is a detached 24 ft. x 22 ft. two car garage/workshop with a floored attic that is fitted with a large shelving rack storage system. The waterfront is protected from erosion by wooden bulkheading and has a 20-ft. pier, all of which was renewed in 2012. Indian Creek is sheltered from strong wind and waves and has water depths suitable for outboard powered skiffs and runabouts, sailing dinghies, and kayaks. An 18 ft. wide boat ramp allows small craft to be launched easily through the wooden bulkheading. It is a few minutes boat-ride to the mouth of Indian Creek that opens into the broad waters of the Choptank River, where good fishing and crabbing may be enjoyed. The lot comprises 1.1 acres of firm, well-drained sandy soil, with about half of this area higher than 10 feet above mean high water level, which is a higher elevation than most water front property in Dorchester County. This elevation means that about 90% of the property is located above the official 100-year flood zone line, obviating the need to have house flood insurance. This eastern part of Dorchester County is notable for the lack of insects compared with the lower-lying marshy areas located to the west of Rt. 50. There are many surrounding trees that add to the beauty and tranquility provided by the extensive water views. New owners will have daily sightings of many delightful animals (e.g., bald eagles, ospreys, great blue herons, and ducks) and in winter flocks of migratory water fowl frequently roost on the creek. There are decorative low-maintenance cottage-garden flower beds around the house and bordering the pool and patio which attract numerous butterflies and hummingbirds. There is a highly productive vegetable garden currently producing many easy to grow crops, such as purple asparagus, climbing French beans, corn, tomatoes, squash etc. There is also a well-established and maintained orchard growing the varieties of peach, plum, apple, pear, oriental persimmon, fig, and trellised raspberries and dessert grapes that flourish in this particular region. The property is open to the south and benefits from the predominately southerly cooling summer breezes but is nicely sheltered by trees from the cold northwesterly winter winds. Beach Haven Road is a quiet and friendly neighborhood comprised entirely of single family homes. This overall tranquility is helped by the low traffic volume due to the road being a cul-de-sac and also by this property being situated only four houses from the end. Comcast high-speed internet is available. Nearby historic Cambridge provides shopping and dining, a newly opened University of Maryland Shore Health pavilion, and a golf course at the Hyatt resort
