Barretts Creek ~ Dock & Boat House ~ Deep water & Sunset Views

This fine one-story home offers great waterfrontage and easy access to the Chesapeake Bay. Perfectly elevated above the water on a 1.49 acre lot, with just a few steps down to the dock, this home is well out of the flood zone and has great big southwestern water views from a broad, maturely wooded homesite with 269 feet of shoreline. Just walk down to the pier and you'll be impressed by the large boat house offering a sheltered harbour for a classic boat, or just a shady, protected place to fish in any type of weather. There is deep water right off the dock, with 5 feet ± of depth, and the charts show deeper water in the creek, so a pier extension could take you deeper.

This 1958 house offers one-floor living with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths in 1507 sq. ft. The house has a unique "airplane wing" configuration with a 45-degree angle in the Great Room, adding architectural interest. From the covered front porch, you walk into the Great Room and see the water immediately from the windows on the back wall. There are hardwood floors throughout. The living area with fireplace is on the right-hand side and the dining area is to the left. If you continue to the right side, through the living area, you enter a small hallway that leads to two guest bedrooms and a full bath, with a separate outside entry. Around to the left side, the Master Suite is tucked in back of the Dining Area, off of the Great Room. Continue past the Dining Area's door to the spacious Deck and you reach the Kitchen with it's awesome views from the wrap-around windows over the sink. There is an electric cook top and two wall ovens, plus a closet with an upright freezer and a clothes washer and dryer. The Kitchen opens to a waterfront Sun & Screen Room that has sliding glass doors all the way around, with a white brick fireplace for chilly nights. This room has all-weather carpeting on the concrete slab floor.

There's quite a bit of extra space in the two separate, attached Garages, which are reached by the front porch, or from an outside walkway off the Kitchen. One of the garages has cabinets and a work bench lining one wall, a rustic powder room, and a separate oil furnace. The rest of the house is heated by another oil-fired, forced air furnace, and has central air conditioning. There is a wall air conditioning unit in the Kitchen to help cool the Sun Room. The oil tank is underground.

The Health Department doesn't have any paperwork on the septic system here, but it is fully functional for the existing house. There is a community water supply for Lee Dale Shores, and all the utilities are located underground.

This home offers great stature, in a covenanted community, with deep water and big views. It is convenient to Kilmarnock and Indian Creek Yacht & Country Club, being about 15 minutes away.
