    Description

    **MAJOR PRICE REDUCTION ** Own a piece of history with this unique Victorian, dubbed "The Lavallette House", that was once owned by the "Terrapin King", Albert LaVallette, Jr. who raised terrapin turtles on this farm to ship to eastern markets. This home is sited on a 82.67 acre peninsula. The terrain is a mixture of high ground, tidal wetland and a rip-rapped shoreline on three sides. A private and somewhat secluded lane leads to the home from the end of Hammock Pointe. The Lavallette House is also a landmark for mariners sailing on the Bay as its tall chimneys can be seen for miles across the water and was once used as a navigational marker by local fishermen. This house was also the subject house in the 1989 tv movie, "Jacob Have I Loved". Beautifully updated for today's lifestyle, this house is currently used as a vacation rental listed with VRBO. The first floor features a large updated kitchen with seating for 8-10; an oversized family room, a formal dining room, a sitting room and a "Captains Room" with panoramic views of the Chesapeake Bay. The first floor features a bedroom with double bunks and a laundry area. Upstairs, the master bedroom features a widow's walk for two. There is an updated full bath across the hall and a second bedroom with two double beds. Exremely spacious and secluded! There is also a screened side porch, a screened front porch, and an outside shower. Explore the natural wonders that surround this local treasure or splash around on your own private beach! There is a single boat dock for your boat or for fishing. Own your own "Ultimate Family Getaway" or keep this property as an income producing rental. What are you waiting for, schedule your private showing today or view the online virtual tour!
