    Property Details

    POTOMAC WATERFRONT! Wonderful 2BR, 1BA renovated cottage with 50` of water frontage overlooking the Potomac River at the widest section of the mighty Potomac. (Note: the adjacent lot with steps is not part of the Sale). This is one of the best waterfront sites in the area: The part of the backyard closest to the water slopes down to the beach and river and thus the house is elevated about 10' above the water line. There is rip rap stone on the slope to prevent soil erosion. And this property and several adjacent properties also have jetties in the water that further protect the shoreline. When you look out your back windows all you see is water (no homes). Step out into the backyard and look to the left and you can see the Point of Colonial Beach. Look slightly to the right and this is where the river bends and you can't even see the Maryland side - you would think you are on the Chesapeake Bay. This home is located just outside of the town of Colonial Beach where there are a host of activities including festivals, restaurants, public library, gym, brewery, grocery stores and other amenities. The popular Dockside Restaurant and Tiki Bar (located on Colonial Beach's Point) is a mere 10 minute kayak ride from the property. The home has an expansive open floor plan allowing for the kitchen to open to all the other living spaces: tv, dining, and living room areas. There are fabulous water views from every part of the house except the front bedroom . The sturdy home is block construction and was renovated in 2019. New kitchen with stainless steel appliances, natural stone countertops (including island with seating), custom white cabinetry with pull out shelving. (All but refrigerator was replaced). Bath remodeled. New tile plank fooring throughout for easy maintenance. All original windows replaced with double pane, some replaced by current owner, some by previous owner. Hot water heater replaced 2019. Roof replaced 2021. HVAC is old but functions well . Double wood burning fireplaces on front wall (owner has not used them), and a cozy wood burning pellet stove on back wall . The home is on public sewer and water. Potomac Westmoreland Shores Civic Corp (PWSCC) owns the beach all along Shore Dr. PWSCC is a voluntary association, and has a Community Center/Clubhouse, and a boat ramp and marina just down the street. For the modest fee of $90/yr one can become a member and get a boat ramp key. And for an additional very reasonable fee, boat slips can also be rented as available. Note: while there are public access points to the beach further up Shore Dr closer to town, the only access to the beach at 106 Shore Dr and 4 other adjacent houses is from the homeowners' backyard via their own private steps to the beach; thus, in effect, making it like a private beach. The lot adjacent to 106 (Lot 27) has steps to the beach but these steps and the lot are not part of the sale. However, the new homeowner of 106 could build steps if they choose. You will love this sweet home and living on the water. As Thoreau once wrote: Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. (Note: all pictures of the river and the beach were taken from subject property's backyard, except the last 5 which are of the Dockside Restaurant). NOTE: OWNER IS ALSO THE BROKER/LISTING AGENT
