October 27, 2021

This is like a waterfront paradise! I would always be outside exploring the beach. This home was built in 1865. It is located on 2.25 acres in Westover, Maryland. The home could use some updating and maybe some undoing of past renovations. The home features a screened in porch, a sunroom, outdoor shower, brick floor, wood walls, exposed beams and amazing views! The home is situated on the Manokin River. Four bedrooms, one bathroom and 1,302 square feet. $399,900

From the Zillow listing:


Waterfront paradise! Enjoy breathtaking sunsets on your own private beach! There is a boardwalk that takes you from the yard, to your own spacious, sandy beach. Speaking of yard, there is rip rap creating a stone wall that buffers the yard from the waterway. Enjoy watching Osprey as they nest near the beach, take an outdoor shower, relax on one of the porches, fish, kayak or canoe, or take up gardening. The possibilities and tranquility are endless here. The home has central HVAC (Carrier), Rinnai tankless hot water heater, pellet stove, and all appliances convey. On the first floor you’ll find exposed brick flooring in the kitchen which overlooks the marsh on the opposite of the beach and the sunrise can be seen here. You’ll also find a large living room with a pellet stove that overlooks the water/beach. Access to another porch from here or from the front of the home. This porch is conditioned and would be perfect for a card table or to use for storage (extra pellets or etc). There is a dining room between the kitchen and the living room which has vaulted ceilings and custom decoy boxes to display our favorite decoys or other nautical decor. Water views can be seen from every window of the house! There is a large full bathroom on the first floor as well as a bedroom & another room that could be used as a bedroom, an office, or a den (access to a storage room or closet, and another porch from this room). Upstairs, there is 3 rooms. One of the bedrooms features a balcony (with wood & hockey rink type glass) that overlooks the picturesque views of the Manokin River. Could use this as primary bedroom for amazing serene views every morning when you open your eyes. The room in between the 2 bedrooms can be used as an office, playroom, den, or add bunkbeds for more sleeping space. Although home was built in the 1800’s there have been many upgrades over the years and this is the perfect oasis. You have to see this one to feel the uniqueness and see all that it has to offer. Please do due diligence in regard to square footage as we do not think tax records are correct, the home is thought to be larger.
