Secluded Waterfowler Home With Access To Choptank River


Wooded, Waterfront, Wildlife. This property has been owned by the same family since 1946 and it has been managed under a state forestry program since 1989, which also serves as a tax benefit. The house was built in 1960 and is positioned to watch sunrises from your sunporch over Watt’s Creek, which is a tributary to the Choptank River. There is an opportunity for a boat slip right at your back door, or if you prefer a boat ramp for deeper water, then Marinak State Park is less than 7 miles away. The driveway into the property is surrounded by mature trees, boundless wildlife, and mountain laurel. The town of Denton provides quick access to shops, fuel, restaurants and you will only be 50 miles from Rehoboth Delaware Beaches. To the west, you can explore Easton in only 15 minutes. There is a detached 2-car garage and woodshop to store your boat and decoys. Incredible water views include several duck blinds along Watt’s Creek for your enjoyment. The meticulous home was built in 1960 with concrete block construction which is energy-efficient and impervious to rot and insects. The property access is improved with a well-maintained fire road through the middle of the driveway. The overall impact from decades with the Forestry Program is very evident with very healthy, mature timber. All electric and utility lines are underground, so there are no unsightly wires on the property. The house has completely updated windows on both 1st and 2nd floors in 2008, and with details like an updated rooftop, you can simply focus on your hunting and fishing. The home is vintage 1960 and is a blank canvas for your decorating and finishes. The living room features a cast-iron woodstove insert fireplace and brick chimney. You will be impressed with quality carpentry on details like the staircase. An oil tank is underground and was fully inspected in 2019. The home is nestled on a high point with a state-appointed 'HOOT' septic and water-management system. With all of the focus on the water activities, trophy deer hunting has to be a close second. Huge rubbed trees provide proof of trophy deer and an older age structure. The fact that there is wooded waterfront land along with a beautifully designed house makes this a truly rare opportunity. Call me for more details or to schedule your private showing.
