Property Description

HISTORIC RENOVATED WATERVIEW COMPOUND IN THE VILLAGE OF DEAL ISLAND! When the US was an English Colony, Deal Island was called Devil's Island because Pirates such as Bluebeard raided the coastline and took captured ships to the tributaries to loot them. The Queen of England appointed a Customs Officer, Lt. A. Price to build a home on the highest elevation in order to create law and order and collect taxes from the local residents. Price's land is now known as 23391 Custom House Rd. and it's on a high elevation in Deal Island. The property borders a Wildlife Preserve that is a Naturalist's Paradise. When you pass through the gate at the end of Custom House Road you are entering a private 2.9 acre Compound that has been thoughtfully updated . The 2,605 square feet home has been completely renovated with a new HVAC system, new vinyl siding, tilt-in windows, architectural shingle roof, luxury vinyl plank floors and a Culligan Water Purification System that has a 20 year Warranty. The kitchen offers new granite countertops, custom cabinetry and a stainless steel appliance package. The original bathroom has been renovated and two additional bathrooms have been added. There is a first floor Master Bedroom, two large bedrooms on the second floor, one with a sitting room that is being used as an office, and a large bedroom on the third floor. All upstairs bedrooms offer water views of the Wildlife Preserve and it's large tributaries. The focal point of family and guest entertainment is a 21'x30' Family Gathering Center that is located on the second floor of an outbuilding. This room has custom cabinetry, a granite countertop bar with a sink and sun decks that offers amazing water views of the tributaries and wildlife to the east and a large pond and the house to the west. The Compound offers storage galore with a 13'x46' building with a concrete floor and a new 11'x12' storage shed. Vehicles and heavy equipment can be stored in a 26'x26' pole barn that has new siding and an architectural shingle roof. There is a natural path that goes from the property to a beachhead where a kayak, canoe or paddleboard can be launched. Bring your larger boat and take advantage of the public double boat ramp or dock it at the protected marina in Wenona, which is less than a five minute drive from the property. Also located five minutes away is a public boat ramp and marina in Deal Island that has a public beach where you can swim in the Chesapeake Bay, collect sea glass or watch the working boats bring in their freshly caught seafood. This marina takes center stage during the Labor Day weekend with a Skipjack boat race, watermen docking competition, live music and a variety of vendors. Skipjacks are sailboats that were prevalent in the late 1800s and early 1900s and were used by watermen to catch crabs and oysters. The Eastern end of the Compound is in an AE 100 year floodplain and the home and all outbuilding are on higher ground and are located in a 500 year floodplain. There was no standing water on the Compound during Hurricane Sandy, which was the worst storm in 100 years. ENJOY THE SOLITUDE, THE NATURAL BEAUTY AND THE RENOVATED HOME AND OUTBUILDINGS THAT THIS FAMILY COMPOUND HAS TO OFFER!
