Your Own Private Island; A 90-Minute Drive from Washington DC Even if our own experience was different, most of us can envision care-free summer days at the shore. Games on the beach, hiking in the forest; only coming back to the house at sunset when it was obvious that we were late for dinner. Now you and your family can create your own summer wonderland with the purchase of an idyllic island located in a sheltered cove of the Chesapeake Bay. Tippity Wichity Island includes a charming and spacious three-bedroom home with a focus on connection to the lush grounds and surrounding water. Each bedroom provides direct outside access. One side of the home features two bedrooms, one of which is the primary, and a full bath. The primary bedroom provides a prominent view of the St. Mary’s River through sliding glass doors giving way to a private porch. The third bedroom and additional full bath are located on the opposite end of the living area for guest privacy. The open “great” room of the home serves as the central gathering place, providing ample space for living, dining, and entertaining. The room is accentuated by a wood-burning fireplace in the center and large windows offering views down the river on one side and access to the back porch, garden, and grounds on the other. While each of the numerous porches offer a unique view and tranquility, the highlight is the screened-in “gazebo” porch. The space welcomes outdoor dining year-round or a shaded respite with the ebb and flow of the river in the background. The Island itself is just under 5 acres highlighted by the dock with boat lift, permitted riprap shoreline and living shoreline with a small beach, soft launch for kayaks/canoes, scenic nature trail and multiple storage structures. The river is clean and temperate, but a heated in-ground swimming pool sits adjacent to the house in its own private garden location. Although much has been written about the erosion of islands in the Chesapeake, Tippity Wichity sits four meters above the high-water line and is protected from all but the most calamitous storms. Mean low water at the boat dock is approximately six feet, which allows for many sail and powerboat options. Nestled squarely in the St. Mary’s River Sanctuary, the Island provides a scenic outpost for nature enthusiasts and the avid outdoorsperson to pursue the abundant wild game and fish down the river, across the mouth of the Potomac, and into the fabled Chesapeake Bay. This incredible property could also serve as a corporate/non-profit retreat or sporting lodge. The property enjoys an easement across farmland on the bank of the River for access to a dock. In addition, the Island itself is just a 5-10 minute boat ride from St. Mary’s College, an historic liberal arts college in St. Mary’s City. In addition to shopping and dining options, the town/College and nearby Leonardtown offer ample opportunities for entertainment, including an outdoor summer concert series and the Governor’s Cup yacht race.
