This home for sale is the third to be built in Watermen’s Cove, and is the first detached home, whereas the other two were “paired”. Though the original paired homes sold successfully, during the marketing process we realized that so many buyers would have preferred a detached home. This home was created to fill such desire. Built by developer and builder, James Dise, the newest addition to the neighborhood boasts 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a garage, front porch, back deck, a large kitchen stainless appliances, and tray ceilings. Just like all 18 lots at Watermen’s Cove, this home enjoys beautiful views and comes with a deeded slip at the pier, as well as community amenities including a heated pool, cabana, screened in gazebo, billiards, sand volleyball court, fire pit, and 900’ of water frontage.
