A personal island escape in Bushwood, MD, beckons potential buyers with a exceptional deal: two residences for the rate of one. The island dwelling arrives with an supplemental mainland house and boat dock—all for $3.75 million.
The 13-acre St. Margaret Island is nestled in St. Catherine’s Sound, below the confluence of the Potomac and Wicomico rivers.
“It’s a really special put,” says listing agent David Desantis, of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty.
“The household itself is attractive, and it is a summer months seashore house that is really livable and extremely charming,” he claims. “But the special thing about this listing is not only is it your individual non-public island, but it is less than two hrs from Washington, D.C., and also close to Richmond, VA.
Two houses, one particular price tag
The most important home arrives with a 175-foot dock—suitable for any sort of boat, mainly because the water is so deep, Desantis suggests.
The setup tends to make it a cinch to park your automobile at the mainland property, board your boat, cruise out of White Necks Creek and above to the island.
“The proprietors of this island personal a house on shore, so you get land on shore as perfectly,” Desantis claims. “You could make a lot more parking there, and it has a dock, so it is incredibly handy.”
‘Lovely loved ones compound’
The island property is a quick boat trip to nearby Colonial Seashore and Sharks Tooth Island.
“You can fish and crab from the dock, and it has a guesthouse,” Desantis notes. “It’s a pretty relatives compound now. This family has owned the residence for 40 yrs, and the young ones are grown now and are living in many sites around the state. The island has tons of prospects with its acreage.”
The island characteristics a 4-bedroom Colonial and two-bedroom guest cottage, a saltwater pool, an orchard, and some outbuildings.
The primary residence was designed in 1971 and has vaulted, wooden-beam ceilings and a wood-burning hearth in the residing home. The rustic, wooden-clad, cabin-design kitchen area has been updated with a double oven.
The home delivers breathtaking waterfront sights from the screened front porch or any space of the dwelling.
The cozy visitor cottage powering the residence also has a screened-in porch, in which website visitors can soak in the sights.
“The family members has stored up the property around the a long time but the kitchen area and rest room regions are a quantity of decades outdated, but are all in good doing work condition,” Desantis states. “I suspect a new purchaser would do a renovation on the household at some level but performing a renovation on an island in the middle of the Potomac has its individual established of troubles, so it may well get some time.”
On the mainland, the three-bed room ranch overlooks Whites Neck Creek and provides “multiple car parking and immediate accessibility to the dock,” the listing states.
“Interest in the listing has been great,” Desantis suggests. “I suspect the residence will be a second home, as it was applied for the sellers. Frank Mann and his spouse had been the homeowners of the assets. He was the mayor of Alexandria, VA, for a selection of a long time and has considering the fact that handed away. They lived in the D.C. region and would commute right here about the summer season.”
As for possible buyers, Desantis thinks they drop into two categories: individuals hunting for a getaway property and all those who envision it as a rental retreat area and celebration location for weddings and other gatherings.
“Something like this property does not appear around typically,” he claims. “And it is rather magnificent.”
