Slaughter Beach has big things happening. Unique property with waterfront acreage plus walk to the beach. Perfect place for a family compound or long-term gains with the possibility of several waterfront lots on the open parcel Enjoy the full seaside living experience.. Large tidal pond right on your 4.92-acre property for crabbing, kayaking and other summer fun or it’s a short walk to the beach. This special property is a magical oasis where your family and friends can create memories for a lifetime. Sellers have enjoyed this property for 20 years. For a buyer looking for that rare experience who loves nature and simple, seaside, village living , this is a special opportunity. While many folks will want to keep this retreat all to themselves, research shows possibility for several lots along the pond. Or maybe you hold onto the waterfront house and subdivide when the time is right for you. Your due diligence should show this is a very intriguing property for your consideration. Two grand, elevated decks level with the main floor, provide long views of waterways, marsh, fading sunsets and the large, bountiful garden below. And just imagine the grand bay view if you added an upper deck. You might not notice the hammocks strung under the entry deck at first, but the owners say guests love that space for easy outdoor conversation screened from the sun by the elevated deck above. The home becomes larger than you expect as you discover each new space at ground level and above. The combination living, dining and kitchen area flows easily with the primary bedroom suite having a soaking tub and wide stall shower to enjoy. The sleeping areas are separated by the living room with 2 bedrooms and a full bath to the left of the living area. Someone with an eye towards expansion would see the walk-up, full-length attic for storage as a candidate to raise the roof and create some awesome rooftop bay views. A 12 x 14 sunroom off the kitchen is a cozy place to spend an afternoon or step outside to the 12 x 1 5 covered deck to enjoy afternoon sunlight with protection from the intense rays. Turn on the party lights and enjoy the evening as the sun goes down. When the owners poured the cement floor below the elevated home, they thought heavy duty, 6”, 4000 PSI concrete. Spanning the full underside of the home, this created many new possibilities other than the obvious sheltered space for cars, boats, and equipment. At ground level you will find a 3-season powder room, a summer kitchen to prepare all the crabs you will be steaming in Old Bay, an eating area, extra storage, and easy access to the side of a 12 x 28 shed. The shed is interesting in that they raised the floor so you could have additional storage beneath it yet still have plenty of space for lawn and garden items above. I mentioned crabs, didn't I? Check out the pictures of some of their catches. Two docks provide access to the tidal water for kayaking, canoeing or just dangling your feet. There are date trees all around ready to bloom, beautiful calla lilies bursting everywhere and a large garden here they grow many vegetables including corn. The area to the right of the pond is mostly wooded and a lovely spot to walk and enjoy. I am still discovering intriguing things about this house. It's clean, well maintained and designed for everyday living on the water. If you're looking for white designer cabinets and granite tops when you move in, this is not for you. But if you like the idea of taking a solid home and adapting it to your taste, this could be your personal showplace. Why not come experience it for yourself.
