A rare and unique opportunity to have a waterfront estate on Cockrell Creek. Built in 1989, this home was built prior to the current setback requirements and is located within steps of the water. Cockrell Creek feeds into Ingram's Bay and then into the Chesapeake Bay. You can be in the Bay in 5 minutes. The 1.15 acres of immaculately maintained landscape has stone bulkhead on all waterfront. Mature trees shade the house. A large dock with two slips and electric boat lift and electric personal watercraft lift has the bonus of a fish cleaning area, electricity access and walkway lighting already in place. There is the bonus having a deep water dock that allows sailboats. The land directly across the creek is in a conservation easement and cannot be developed.
