Chesapeake Beach - Little Cottage With A Lot To Say

 Breezy Point

5131 Breezy Point Road

Chesapeake Beach, Maryland

MLS #CA10070568 

$449,944

 

This is a one of a kind original 1936 Sears & Roebuck beach cottage less than 100 yards from the Chesapeake Bay.

 

 

Mermaid  Breezy Point

 

 

 

The cottage named “Mermaid Dreams” is less than 1 block from a marina offering fishing charters, catamaran charters, sales, slips, cottage Air BnB, & wonderful boat launch that puts you directly on the bay in less than two minutes.

 

Sailing, Fishing are right here.

There is a long sandy beach in front of the house that is a public beach offering  paddle boarding and kayak rental. The beach has a fishing pier & camp sites.

If you want more personal space... the neighborhood has a private beach one-minute walk from the cottage. The public beach is open from May1st-Oct 31st.

 

The County charges admission to the beach, however an unusual benefit is residents of the neighborhood are granted access all year long, there is no admission for residents or their guests. The beach can be accessed 24hrs, any time of year. Residents are provided a key to the beach gate. The key only conveys with the sale of the neighborhood properties. The private beach is also accessed with a key. The key is available from the neighborhood association to the residents for a yearly fee of $45. The neighborhood has a voluntary association, technically there is no HOA.

There is a general store at the entrance to the neighborhood with Deli, groceries, liquor, beer & wine.

Chesapeake Beach is a 10-minute drive from the house & offers marinas, waterparks, restaurants, ice cream, boardwalks, fishing pier, quaint shops, art shows, farmers markets, concerts, hiking trails, bike trails & slots.

One can spend the whole day in Chesapeake beach & never have to get in their car.

The Cottage was constructed in 1936. The current owners are the 3rd owners of this cozy little beach cottage. The house & the neighborhood carry quite a bit history, as there are pictures of the house, Breezy Point Park, from the early 1950s in the kitchen.

The current owners restored the little cottage with an interior remodel, structural repair & a concept design based on retaining the original 1936 era with all the comforts, luxury & low maintenance of a new estate type home.

 

 

Kitchen Breezy Point

 

All work was filed, performed & approved through the building permitting process. All permits & documentation will convey with the sale of this incredible restoration.

Installed when remodeled: Septic, well, hardscaping, landscaping, electrical, plumbing, Carrier Multi Split ductless, roof sheathing, shingles, siding, trim & cornice, gourmet kitchen, deck, hot tub, water filtration system, insulation, plumbing fixtures, electrical fixtures, windows & doors, fireplace insert, driveway, insulation, bathroom, Samsung full size stackable washer and dryer, appliances, screens, porch heaters, isinglass screens, outdoor shower, etc..

 

There are no current comps in the neighborhood for this cottage. Most sales in the neighborhood were distressed sales. None offered full 180-degree views of the Chesapeake Bay. There are full Chesapeake Bay views from every room and the porch.

The master bedroom maintains a cool 67 degree temperature when the outside temp is 100 thanks to the Carrier Multi-Split Ductless units throughout the house.

There has never been a flood claim filed on this house since 1936. Today you could not build this close to the water without drastic measures for conservation & remediation.

The house is lived in year-round.

Due to the size, this cottage is ideal for a couple that wants a weekend home on the water. Here is your place on the bay to store & use your boat. Enjoy the beach, relax on the porch, sit inside in the A/C & get lost in the views of the bay.

Imagine, all this without having to cross the Bay Bridge, deal with 95 South or drive for hours to get to the beach. 45min. to D.C. , 1HR 15min to Mclean Tysons Corner, 90 min to Baltimore

This is an absolute must see one of kind turn key beach cottage. Don’t miss this chance to see this 1936 Sears & Roebuck Beach Cottage on the Bay.
