With about 105 feet of waterfront, this private .54-acre property comes with bulkhead that is a bit unusual. It's not straight, but almost in the shape of a U, says the listing agent. Altogether, the bulkhead is about 120 feet long, and it runs from the mouth of East Creek toward the house and then parallel to the front of the house and back north to the creek. The agent says there is also a floating dock. Built in 2001, the two-story house offers an open floor plan as well as a fireplace, skylights and lots of windows. While two bedrooms are on the main level, the master suite occupies the second floor. There are 3 1/2 bathrooms. The finished basement has sliders that open to the yard.
