"Hilltop House" ~ Updated History ~ John's Creek ~ Corrotoman River

This 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, 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 new, custom kitchen features granite-composite (silestone) counter tops, plus top-quality appliances including a stainless steel dishwasher, Jenn-Air range, and double-door refrigerator that matches the new cabinets. The spacious, shared bath features tile flooring, an oversized, whirlpool tub, plus a special European-style front-loading washer and dryer set. There are 2 bedrooms, the larger one featuring dual closets and views of the water. The whole house, while petite, enjoys large windows, high ceilings, and lots of sunlight.

A matching garden shed provides good storage space. The house has all new mechanical systems, with central air and a gas furnace, plus new plumbing. There is a new roof that carries a lifetime warranty, and the house has been freshly painted, inside and out.

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, of rugged terrain, with 100-plus wooden steps leading down the hillside to a pier with 4 feet ± MLW. There is a shared community artesian well and an oyster-shell driveway, and the installed septic system is sized for a 3-bedroom house. The Sellers are planning to plant new grass.
