Unique features: This cheerful Cape Cod house on Deep Creek comes with 50 feet of waterfront footage and a private pier with a boat lift. During the summer months, the new owners might spend as much time on the spacious rear deck, which spans the width of the house, as they will inside. When it’s cooler, residents will enjoy water views from the family room and master bedroom.
Special features indoors include fireplaces in the family room and master bedroom, environmentally-friendly Anderson windows, and heated floors in the bathrooms. Cooks will appreciate the kitchen’s sophisticated propane cooking system along with stainless steel appliances and seemingly endless granite countertops that will make preparing even complicated meals a breeze.
In addition to peaceful water views, the master bedroom suite features cathedral ceilings, built-in shelves adjoining the fireplace and a large walk-in closet.
The lower level could almost function as a separate residence for in-laws or grown children. It includes a dry bar larger than most kitchens that is equipped with granite countertops. This level also includes a recreation room, home theater, full bathroom and the conversation starter — an old-timey, built-into-the wall Murphy bed.
In addition to two cars, the garage has room for an irrigation system, solar panels, a whole-house generator and extra storage space.
The house is part of the Shore Acres community, and includes access to a dock, beach, clubhouse and playground.
An earlier version of this article misstated the type of the bar on the lower level. It is a dry bar.
