To be what we are, area water quality is and has to be pristine. Come experience all we have to offer and you will make the area your home.
The wildlife on the property is spectacular with deer, ducks, rabbits, swans, geese and saltwater fish from your shoreline, includes species such as speckled trout, flounder, redfish, croaker, spot, rockfish and more. Blue crabs are abundant and with little effort a crab steam is no problem at all. Oysters and clams grow right on your own shoreline in the pristine waters of Craddock Creek, where it meets the Chesapeake Bay.
The home is built to the highest standards by one of the areas premier builders. It features amenities that everyone is looking for in high end homes; such as granite, tile, high ceilings, fireplaces, polished hardwood floors, elevator, private master suite and the location is one of the most private that you will find on the entire Delmarva Peninsula.

The peninsula that it's on is locally called a "Neck" as the peninsula stretches for 10 miles out into the Chesapeake Bay. The actual 50 acres part of the plantation is characterized by pine woods with mixed hardwoods and has over a half mile of beachfront along the Chesapeake Bay and Craddock Creek.
