"Fleets Bay" ~ Beach House ~ On the Chesapeake Bay

This two-story, three-bedroom, two-bath home offers a bay front beach framed by two wooden jetties and a line of riprap stones, with a charming wooden footbridge to carry you over the rocks to the water's edge. There are sweeping views of Fleet's Bay with Tabbs Creek to the north, and Antipoison Creek and Windmilll Point on the south. The house is elevated over the sandy ground on wooden pilings and has viny siding for low maintenance. A new heat pump provides central heating and cooling.

An asymmetric block sidewalk leads from the driveway up to the front porch steps, and the woooden front porch railings echo the asymmetric block design. The entry Hall has a slate-look flooring, with a full Bath on the left and a stairway to the bedrooms on the right. The first floor Bath also hosts the clothes washer and dryer. At the waterfront end of the house, a big eat-in Kitchen features a sliding-glass door onto the Screened Porch. The appliances are lined up along the left-hand wall and include an electric range with vent hood, and a refigerator. There is also a chest-style deep freezer located in a hall closet. (The intalled dishwasher doesn't work and the trash compactor is in unknown condition.) The Kitchen is open to a long Living Room with a brick hearth and wood burning fireplace that has a wood stove insert for greater efficiency. There are large windows at each end of this room for lots of natural sunlight, and there is a vaulted ceiling with indirect lighting.

Upstairs are a shared full Bath and three bedrooms, two on the waterfront, and one with a sliding-glass door onto an upper deck that offers Bay breezes and widow's walk views of the Chesapeake Bay. One of the bedrooms has built-in stairs to a floored attic storage area.

This home was built in 1980 and has a conventional, three-bedroom on-site sewage disposal system and an artesian well water supply. The first floor has vinyl flooring and the second floor has wall-to-wall carpet The walls are paneled. A new owner should budget for some replacement windows or glass as several of the existing windows and doors have fogged thermopanes. The Seller is willing to leave the house partially furnished, so you can enjoy the beach right away and add your own touches over time.

A backyard brick barbeque grill is right next to the beach. The house is situated on a level 0.24 +/- acre lot that is approximately 75 feet wide by 185 feet deep, and is landscaped with a beautiful camellia bush next to a nautical lamp post in the front yard and some red-tip photinias along the sideline boundary. There is a detached tool shed with matched vinyl siding. Additionally, there is a concrete community boat ramp on Tabbs Creek for Trail's End residents, where you can launch a jet ski or trailered boat. The address for this house is 980 Chesapeake Trail, White Stone VA 22578.
