"Hilltop Harbour" ~ John's Creek ~ Corrotoman River

This petite and charming, circa 1900 cottage has been completely remodeled with a sophisticated touch, while preserving the historical details of hand-blown glass window panes, wide wooden trim, brick fireplace, and heart-pine flooring that has been beautifully sanded and refinished.

The Great Room features recessed lighting and an original brick fireplace that has been converted to gas logs. The custom kitchen features granite-composite (silestone) counter tops, plus top-quality appliances including a stainless steel dishwasher, and a dual-fuel Jenn-Air range with gas cooktop and electric oven. The side-by-side refrigerator has a front that matches the white, paneled cabinets. A sunny, spacious bathroom features tile flooring, an oversized jetted tub/shower, and also hosts a water-saving front-loading laundry pair. There are 2 bedrooms, the larger one has dual closets and enjoys views of the creek. This home offers large windows, high ceilings, and lots of sunlight. A wonderful, sunny deck wraps around two sides of house for an additional outdoor living area. A matching garden shed in the back yard provides extra storage space.

The house was updated in 2003 with new mechanical systems including central air and a gas furnace, plus new plumbing and a new roof that carries a lifetime warranty; a new kitchen was installed, the Bath was updated, the pine floors refinished, and the interior was freshly painted. In 2007 the sloping front yard and level back yard was graded and seeded with new grass, and the chimney was stabilized to keep it snugged up against the house. The exterior recieved a fresh coat of paint in 2010.

This cottage is perched on a hilltop that has elevated views down John's Creek to it's mouth on the Corrotoman River. It is on a 1-acre ± lot that has 239' of shoreline, and rugged terrain, with wooden steps leading down the hillside to the dock. A fine pier with 4 feet ± MLW features a boat lift, a floating kayak launching platform, and a custom made wooden bench for enjoying the serene creekside views. This home has a classic oyster-shell driveway, and the installed septic system is sized for a 3-bedroom house. There is plenty of room for an addition on the waterside of this house.

This house is situated on Lot 2 of a small, four-lot subdivision. There is a shared community artesian well on Lot 3, and this house has a right of way across Lot 1 for the driveway. Lot 1 may be purchased with the house, if more land is desired. It has 0.98 acre, an installed septic system, and a walking trail down to the creek.

You can take a tour of the area surrounding Johns Creek and the Corrotoman River basin at Community Walk.
