Unique features of property: Once the new owners of this waterfront home have seen the sun set over their pier on Parkers Creek, they’ll be tempted to return to the same spot every day for a repeat performance. This southern charmer is full of user-friendly touches inside and outside. There’s not only a pier for docking boats in the calmer waters of Parkers Creek within hailing distance of the Chesapeake Bay, but that pier is equipped with a motorized lift to raise and lower kayaks, canoes and larger craft. There’s a recently re-tiled swimming pool with a generously-sized deck — and a long ramp for wheelchairs leading up to it. Gardeners won’t run out of landscaped plots for experimenting with new plantings. Numerous seating areas on the grounds provide a respite from the day’s labors, or the new owners can rock the afternoon away from the long, covered porch. The home has a new roof, while the kitchen has been outfitted with a double oven, an extra-deep farmhouse sink, and a work sink in the kitchen island. There are gleaming hardwood floors on every level and exposed wood trim around the doors. The library features spectacular, floor-to-ceiling built-in wooden bookcases covering two walls — and an old-fashioned ladder on wheels providing access to the top shelf. There’s a fireplace and wet bar and the walk-in shower has a built-in bench. There’s even two additional outdoor structures that could be used as a gym, party area or workshop.
