"Clifton Cove" ~ Brick Contemporary ~ Indian Creek

This 4 bedroom, 2 ½ bath home is of high quality brick construction. It features an open interior floor plan with vaulted ceilings. Newly refinished hardwood flooring extends throughout the entire home, excepting the carpeted bedrooms. The kitchen features brand new stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. All rooms are equipped with ceiling fans. All bathrooms have been recently updated with new paint, new lighting and new flooring. A testament to the attention to quality of this home is the machine finished concrete crawlspace and garage floor. The crawlspace is also conditioned to provide for both enhanced living comfort and reduced energy usage. The home is oriented with southerly exposures on the water side providing shade from the sun in the summer and the sun's warmth in the winter. A generous waterside sunroom provides an all weather setting for enjoyment of the water oriented activities.

The 1.5 acre lot has 372 feet of waterfront. It is situated on a point of land with rare wide and long views. Owners have a 180 degree wide view along the creek and a half-mile long view down Indian Creek. The setting is connected to the development, yet private, located off a cul-de-sac, there is no car traffic or noise. For boaters, the setting provides a safe harbor, but only a short 1.5 mile trip to the Chesapeake Bay. The home is situated only 50 feet from the water's edge providing unparalleled connection to the water; experience the detail of passing ducks, geese, otters and watch the fish break the water's surface; see the ospreys fish close up and personal, yet the high elevation of the ground provides security for the home beyond the 100 year flood zone.

Summertime outside livability on the generous deck is greatly improved by the shade created by the great number of mature hardwood trees that enhance the property. The granary located across the creek does generate some noise, but only during grain harvests. It also provides an unending opportunity to watch tug boats maneuver barges and to witness the nesting, fledging and feeding of osprey families from nests located there.Water depth at the end of the short pier exceeds 5 feet. Pier services include a 20' X 48' slip and a twin jet ski lift. Water and electric is provided on the pier and at the slip including both 120v/20amp and 240v/50amp electric. The pier is amply lit with both photoelectric dock lights and switchable mercury vapor overhead lamps.

The home site is located in one of the most desirable communities in the Kilmarnock area, Clifton Landing. Located a scant 2 miles from the center of Kilmarnock, the 1.5 mile approach to the development is private and provides for an extremely secure environment with only one way in and one way out. The property itself is protected by the covenants of the homeowner's association; yet annual HOA fees are extremely low at $250/yr.

Offering one-floor living and easy access to the water, this 3 bedroom contemporary will impress you with its gleaming hardwood floors, vaulted ceiling, brick hearth, and open floorplan. Convenient to the Town of Kilmarnock and the Chesapeake Bay with a protected harbor to 5' ± MLW on Indian Creek, this broad 1.43 acre lot offers 372' of shoreline and a cleared, level yard shaded by majestic hardwoods. This home is designed to make living easy with its brick exterior, conditioned crawl space, paved circular driveway, and 2-car attached garage with automatic door openers. It is located out of the flood zone yet enjoys a gentle grade to the pier that offers boat lift (converted for jet skiis) power, water, and a generous berth for a cabin cruiser so that you can immediately enjoy exploring all the Bay has to offer. The home was built in 1996 and utilized a Site Plan with Best Management Practices in order to build at the 50-foot setback line instead of the 100-foot setback line, for close-up and dynamic views of Indian Creek.

A covered Front Porch with an etched glass front door opens to the Foyer with coat closet and Powder Room, and offers a peek of the creek views through the waterfront Sunroom. As you enter the Great Room there is a hallway to the left that leads to the Bedroom Wing. Turn the corner to the right and the living room opens to a large vaulted ceiling with a brick wood-burning fireplace and raised hearth on the end wall. A formal Dining Area is open on the right and this room is also open to the U-shaped Kitchen Area with Granite counters and brand new Stainless Steel appliances. The Kitchen has a doorway leading to the attached, finished 2-car Garage with workbench, for easy access when you bring your groceries home.

The Living Area offers a wall of glass with a doorway to the waterfront Deck. Another door takes you into the heated and cooled Sunroom that also opens to the backyard and the deck. Tucked into the back wall of the Living Area is a good sized utility closet for the Heat Pump air handler and gas back-up furnace, which makes maintenance easy to do.

The Hallway off the Foyer takes you past the Powder Room on the right. At the end of this Hall, the Owner's Suite with new wall-to-wall carpet is located to the right side with water views, spacious bath with dual vanity, shower and tiled tub, plus large walk-in closet. After the Owner's Suite, the Hall turns to the left and has a full Guest Bath with a dual vanity and a combination tub/shower with glass doors. New light fixtures and fresh paint update all the Baths. Opposite the Guest Bath is a large closet with a conveniently located Washer & Dryer hookup (please note, the washer & dryer do not convey). Next to the Laundry is a Bonus Room with a closet and window overlooking the driveway. Continuing down the Hallway, there is Bedroom on the right and another at the end of the Hall to the left. All the bedrooms have carpeted floors and large closets.

Exclusively offered for $499,900.
SOLD! JULY 2014!

The waterfront side of the house offers a private backyard deck. You can see the 2 garage doors to the left.

Easy access to the water is a feature that is much appreciated as some homes need extensive stairs to reach their pier.

The pier has power, water, jet skii/boat lift, and berth sized for a cabin cruiser.

There are wrap-around water views from the deck.

The deck view looking upstream shows the park-like yard.

The deck view looking downstream includes a view of the grain depot across the creek, where locally raised grain is dried, stored, and loaded on barges.

The boat lift currently has a wooden platform for jet skiis that can be removed for a boat, if desired.

A detached tool shed is also set closer than 100' and has "grandfathered" status.

The spacious living area offers refinished oak floors and a vaulted ceiling. Very open and light.

The Great Room is open to a formal dining area, and also has a more casual dining area by the hearth, next to the granite & stainless Kitchen. The doorway to the 2-car garage is to the right of the refrigerator.
