Stunning 2.78 Acre Waterfront Retreat on the Wicomico River featuring a 3015 +/- sq ft all brick home built by custom home builder Robert Messick. This unique property boasts unobstructed panoramic views of the water, lush, open grassy lawns with shade trees, and a standing pine forest. This secluded home is the perfect hide-away nestled on exclusive Cotton Patch Island. A private road provides access to the few select homes built on this impressive section of the Wicomico River. Large homesites this close to town are hard to come by and perfect for anyone who wants the privacy and seclusion of being away from town, but still within 15 minutes of PRMC hospital, Salisbury University, and the charming downtown Salisbury area. You are welcomed into this traditional home through a gracious 2 story foyer with custom built-ins. The first floor offers multiple living areas. A formal living and dining room featuring hardwood floors and a brick fireplace open through sliding doors to the outdoor patio and look out over the river. A beautiful large brick sunroom extends off of the dining area and also opens to the patio and riverfront. The centralized traditional kitchen includes hardwood floors and a sunlit breakfast room looking out to the river through the charming bay window. From the kitchen you enter the perfectly cozy family room complete with wood ceiling beams, a full brick wall with a second wood burning fireplace, and sliding doors out to the waterfront. The first floor also features an office with built in book shelves and a closet(could be used as a first floor bedroom or guest suite), a full bathroom, a half bath for guest use, and a laundry / utility room with access to the rear yard. Upstairs is host to the master bedroom suite featuring his and hers walk in closets and a master bathroom suite. Three graciously sized bedrooms and a large full bathroom with double vanity complete the upstairs. Access to the 2 car attached garage is provided through the utility room. Extensive blacktop driveway leads you through the structured pine forest which stand tall and proud on the front grounds of this beautiful property. The attached 2 car garage provides covered parking for vehicles. The shoreline is fully rip-rapped and features a recently rebuilt pier which is shared with the neighboring property. Each have their own side of pier for boat storage and share maintenance expenses. Irrigation on all the lawns provide for lush green grass and incredible waterfront ambiance. Rear brick patios and walkways are perfect for entertaining guests and enjoying the amazing back yard. Major improvements include a new Spicer Brother's roof and gutter guard (tear off and replace) 7 yrs old, rebuilt pier 8-10 yrs ago, added rip-rap shoreline approx 14 yrs ago, dual zone heat pump approx 12 yrs old, and a Dry-Teck system in crawl space. This property IS NOT located in an HOA (but has basic covenants & restrictions per the deed), has City Water and a private Septic. Owners have never experienced any flooding but do carry flood insurance at approx annual cost of $800. Owners have completed a home and septic inspections for buyer's convenience and will provide copies upon request. Home inspection was done previously by Bud Esham 3/6/19.. Septic was done by Accurate Environmental and found in Normal working order 12/19/18. Some repairs noted on home inspection have been completed by seller. Home will be sold as-is with disclosure of inspections. Buyers may still request their own inspection with right to terminate if desired.
