"The Bay Beach House" ~ Chesapeake Bay ~ Sandy Beach & Boat Ramp

Amazing beach house! This sprawling California contemporary offers one-floor living with Bay breezes and views of a distant lighthouse out in the ship's channel. A community boat ramp for Tides on the Chesapeake is located in a nice park with a covered picnic pavilion on the Little Wicomico River, just inside the Smith Point jetties, and lets you launch your jet skiis or trailered fishing boat for free.

The home features pickled wood flooring for a seascape effect, and has a huge open Living Room/Dining Room with vaulted ceiling. The Living Room seating area is sunken one-step-down to maximize the vaulted ceiling. Adjacent is a private Home Office with the same stunning views. The Family Room has a wood-burning fireplace with gas logs, and vaulted ceiling with rustic beams, and is open to the Kitchen with Breakfast Bar. There is a Screened Porch off the Family Room that opens to the beach. A Powder Room, Laundry Room and two-car attached Garage are convenient to the Kitchen and Family Room.

The Owner's Suite has a private screened porch so you can sleep with the door open and wake up to the sound of waves breaking gently on the shore. The Owner's Bath has mirrorred walls, a jetted tub, double-basin vanity, plus tiled shower. The two Guest Bedrooms share a hall bath; one has a walk-in closet and water view, the other overlooks the landscaped front yard. The bedrooms all have wall-to-wall carpet.

A large concrete patio graces the backyard which is just steps away from the beach, which has two wooden groins to catch the sand. There is a paved driveway leading to the 2-car attached Garage and a circular, gravel driveway that runs by the front door. The roof is 5 years old and there is 2-zone HVAC; one heat pump and air handler was replaced in 2007. An attached storage shed for patio furniture, wind surfers, or hobi cats keeps your toys within easy reach. The Kitchen has a wall oven, built-in microwave, double-door refrigerator with ice and water dispenser, and a gas cook-top with vent hood. There is also a dishwasher and trash compactor, and a large closet pantry. This house comes complete with a central vacuum and laundry pair.

This property is Lot 4 of Tides On The Chesapeake with an adress of 908 Tranquility Road, Heathsville, VA 22473. The survey states that the house is located outside the flood zone. You can download the plat of the Bay Beach House as a PDF file (requires Acrobat Reader from Adobe to view).

The waterfront side of the house has lots of glass. The two screened porches are connected by a concrete patio.

The street side of the house has a brick facing with a gravel circular driveway and a paved sidewalk. The front yard is landscaped for privacy from the street.

The house faces due east. This photo is looking north towards Smith Point.

Looking straight out into the Chesapeake Bay.

Looking south down the Bay shore.

The double front entry door is framed by glass.

The living room is a great place for a spotting scope.

Here you can see the slight step down that defines the seating area. The Kitchen and Family Room lie beyond the Dining Area.

The living room seating area is slightly lower to set it apart and maximize the vaulted ceiling.
