Located in Wimbledon Farm, this waterfront estate home, designed by Cathy Cherry and constructed by West River Builders, is truly a masterpiece in design and quality. The 3-level home – complete with elevator — takes full advantage of its waterfront setting that includes 400 ft of shoreline. Facing Quiet Waters Park, the ever-changing view includes brilliant fall foliage, deer by the water’s edge, and osprey circling overhead. Stroll down to the 100 ft private pier with deep-water slips. There’s 8 ft water depth at the dock; Harness Creek is a recognized hurricane hole so this is the perfect spot for boats to ride out a storm. The 20 ft x 40 ft pool has a large ipe deck and provides tranquil water views.
