Choptank River Waterfront Property
20786 Frazier Point Lane, Preston, Maryland 21655
Waterfront retreat with broad westerly views across the Choptank River
The canvas of this remarkable view is touched by vibrant wetlands and preserved farms teaming with wildlife and waterfowl. The sights and sounds are noteworthy for this nine-acre ranchette located nine miles from Easton and six miles from Preston.
The brick rambler was built in 2001 and has been dutifully maintained and updated. The orientation of the house is westerly, capturing the river views with a large water-side screened porch. The floor plan of the house lends itself to entertaining with an open-concept kitchen with an island including a Gaggenau steamer.
Beautifully refinished oak floors create warmth throughout the open-concept kitchen, dining, and living rooms, with a gas fireplace and built-ins for the entertainment console. The primary suite is on the south side of the house with water views, a large closet, an accessible shower, and corner bath.
Off the foyer is an office/study opening to the great room. Past the kitchen are two additional bedrooms, a full bath, laundry, and a spacious three-car garage. The second floor was recently refinished and serves as a recreation/studio space with a full bath. The mechanicals are located in the garage and are readily accessible. There is a propane-fired hydronic heating system serving the domestic hot water and HVAC system and the crawl space has an extra course or two of block providing easy access under the house with a recently replaced vapor barrier.
The property has five acres under cultivation with a local farmer rotating crops yearly. There are 382 feet of shoreline with improvements, including rip-rap stone revetment and a pier with over 4 feet of water at mean low tide. An outdoor shower is neatly tucked away, adjacent to the waterside screened-in porch. The paved, tree-lined driveway provides a handsome entry to this lovely waterfront retreat located a short drive from Easton or Preston.
