Ditchley is a historic treasure with many stories to tell! Originally called ‘Bloomsburg’ in 1815, then ‘Miramar’ after the clear reflections made in the blue water in 1863, the original home burned down and was rebuilt in 1871 and named Ditchley after the English Ditchley. As the years pass with a historic home, it learns to accommodate the owner and grows in size. Ditchley changed hands multiple times, then beginning in 1988 several years were spent restoring its charm and beauty. As you walk around the property, not only do you take in the privacy of the land and waterfront views everywhere, but also the charm of the tongue and groove ceilings on the wrap-around porches, the oversized rooms, high ceilings, two Queen Anne sleeping porches, masterful craftsmanship of millwork, wood exterior doors with glass windows allowing light throughout, and much more.
Most all rooms have waterfront views including the large kitchen off the formal dining room, the parlor off the large foyer with screen porch access, and the family room with center fireplace. There are four large bedrooms including two en suite bedrooms both with enclosed sleeping porches. Great storage and beautiful wood floors throughout. Gorgeous waterfront along the North River that feeds into the Mobjack Bay and Chesapeake Bay. DEEP water at the new pier with a covered area at the end and a boat Lift. Rare offering of a historic waterfront estate.
