For all of its intrinsic beauty and charm, the property at 118 Ice House Point is also strategically located and extremely accessible, both by land and by sea. While emphasis has been placed on its seclusion, expansive waterfront, and diverse wildlife, its proximity to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge is of the utmost importance as well when considering the benefits of this estate.
The primary focus of an archaeological excavation in the late 1960s, Icehouse Point was the site of a colonial tobacco plantation in the late 1600s-early 1700s. Several historical structures lie adjacent to the property at 118 Ice House Point, including a cemetery dating back to the late 1600s - complete with underground, vaulted brick crypts, several headstones and a brick foundation wall along its boundaries. You can read more about the historical markers here.
