The home, clad in weathered wood siding, is less than welcoming, with a makeshift porch fashioned from bricks and decking material. The two-lite, two-panel front door, not original to the home, has lost its window panes.
A sunset photo facing west toward Mobjack Bay showcases the grand façade of this 3,900-square-foot home. Landscaping will be designed to complement rather than compete with the home and its soon-to-be raised foundation.
The home boasts beautiful views of Mobjack Bay, easily accessible from the backyard. Mobjack Bay, a popular sailing spot along the Chesapeake Bay, features oyster reefs, seagrass beds and tidal wetlands.
Mobjack Bay, named for an Indian tribe that once inhabited the Virginia tidewater region, is teaming with speckled trout, flounder, croakers, spot, weakfish and small bluefish. The 7-mile-wide and 16-foot-deep waterway includes four main tributaries: the East, North, Ware and Severn Rivers.
