Offered for sale is a secluded/private waterfront property in a historic fishing village on St. George Island located just off the Potomac River near its mouth to the Chesapeake Bay. The sale includes the main house and oyster house with an additional adjacent land parcel. Live and work on historic St. George Island.
Perched high above Island Creek, this three-story, four-bedroom, three-bath home shares one-and-a-half acres with a former oyster shucking house that has operated day camps, environmental education programs, private party venues, outdoor conferences — all the while maintaining a seafood processing license and operation. The main house is nestled into the environment which allows for outdoor living without the inconvenience of weather. Included out-building is zoned for aquaculture and water-dependent uses or could serve as a 10-slip dock for family and friends who need safe-harbor docking on the Inter-Coastal.
The main house features stunning views from both inside the home and from the screened porches on both floors. This home provides a sense of 360-degree views. There are multiple balconies and the entire home has a wraparound deck. Private, creek side balcony, overhead light and fan, large enough for a full-size bed and sitting area. Private front balcony to whirlpool. Both 2nd floor bedrooms can access whirlpool under skylight in master bath. The finished attic bedroom looks across the St. Mary’s River, Island Creek, and into osprey nests of decades. Historic St. George Island attracts permanent and migratory birds, and is renowned for osprey nests, blue herons, and purple martins. Osprey and martins return annually to the nesting sites over Island Creek off this parcel.
The oyster house and dining porch, dock, and pier have electricity and running water. There are two bathrooms in the building. There are 10 slips for various sized vessels at the pier and a soft-crab shedding operation. Island Creek is on the Intercostal Waterway at the hub of Potomac and St. Mary’s rivers and St. George and Island creeks. A canoe/kayak launch operates on an honor system at the end of the dock. A large array of water-dependent businesses are permitted. Some uses have been as a Maritime museum; private dock/slip rent; environmental education; day camp; oyster farming; wedding/party venue; carry-out food; seafood processing; boat house with bathrooms and kitchen. The property contains 3 EDU's (allowed sewer connections) as a whole and the second lot included in the sale could potentially be combined through a Boundary Line Adjustment Plat (buyer to confirm with county) allowing for an accessory apartment or expansion of the oyster facility. Let the property pay your mortgage, live in paradise and work there too.
