Built With 40,000 Bricks To Withstand Almost Any Weather!
An unobstructed southeast view of the Chesapeake Bay, an abundance of space to live and play, all this and more modestly priced at $1,199,000 with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.
hen you wake up at Bay View you will see nothing but an expansive southeast view of the Chesapeake Bay. The water is always changing – it’s almost never the same when you glance out any one of the windows at Bay View.
The view is nearly unchanged since 1659 when Englishman Richard Gott marked off the 600 acres of Deale. In the 1850’s watermen traveled from the Eastern Shore to a huge natural oyster bar called Bay Shore Bar. At one time, most of Rest Haven was owned by Captain Bernard Franklin. Later the area became the Phipps farm and by the 50’s it was the McKibbon’s farm. Then later sub-divided and aptly named the area “Rest Haven”.
Crab and Fish from
Your Private Pier
It is supposed to be a very good year for blue crabs in Maryland. Walk down to your private pier and pull your traps and harvest a dozen or so Maryland crabs to steam for dinner in the summer kitchen or start your own oyster pen. If you’ve ever wanted to pull your own traps, then your dreams could come true at 809 Bay View in Deale, Maryland. This classic Colonial is located in one of Maryland’s best ranked places to live according to the Washingtonian Magazine.
Built 12-Inches on Center from
One Run of 40,000 Bricks
Wondering if this home will stand the test of time in any weather? Consider the fact that it’s built from one run of 40,000 bricks. According to the owners who built the home it was easier to find a suitable waterfront location to build than it was to find all the necessary bricks. If you know construction, you’ll know the strength that comes building 12-inches on center. While there are no guarantees, this home can certainly withstand almost anything nature should throw at it.
Wake Up and See Nothing
but the Chesapeake Bay
There are windows onto the Bay from almost every room. The Master Bedroom has two sets of windows so no matter where you are in the room, the Bay is always in sight. The family room has a triple French door to the outside and a window near the fireplace. The formal living room and formal dining room may be located on the street-side of the house, but, where you live is nothing but expansive water views.
Use the summer kitchen off the sun porch when friends and family are around for steamed crabs from the Bay. You can enjoy eating or entertaining on the sun porch almost year-round.
Entertain in the well equipped main kitchen when you host those affairs where you might use the formal living room and dining room. Great your guests in a grand two-story entrance foyer.
Upstairs, you have the second floor hall for sitting or for display. There are two well proportioned bedrooms in addition to the master bedroom. The multi-function room could be divided into more bedrooms or used as very large game room or media room.
Close In To
Bay View is almost due east of Washington, DC. It’s located at one of the closest points on the Bay from the city. When you look at a road map you’ll see that it’s almost a straight run and only about 30 minutes from the heart of the downtown. Annapolis, Baltimore, Fort Meade and BWI are just as close.
at Rest Haven
You might not need much more than what Bay View has to offer. But if you did need a boat ramp, there is a well maintained community ramp and pier just two doors down. Use it to put your center console fish boat or jet skis in the water in the spring and haul them out in the fall.
