This three-story home is a playful interpretation of the Shingle style, an American classic that’s been a coastal fixture since the late 19th Century. It features shakes and board-and-batten siding, with roof overhangs, exposed rafter tails and classically proportioned lattice columns on the front portico. Round windows add a nautical accent to the home’s whimsical nature.
The rear porch extends the length of the main level and is partially enclosed with windows in the breakfast room, while the rest of the porch opens directly to the keeping room. The second-floor master connects to a private covered terrace that overlooks the Bay for quiet reflection at the end of the day. The large third-floor space can be finished as a bedroom, office or game room. A detached garage continues the Shingle motif with a bonus room above.

William Scott (1828-1891)
The founding of Cape Charles in 1886 was a direct result of William Scott’s vision and tenacity. A wealthy railroad investor and Pennsylvania Congressman, Scott was the driving force behind construction of the rail line down the spine of the Delmarva Peninsula to what is now Cape Charles. In the late 1870s, he conceived the idea of a rail-sea link from the Eastern Shore to Norfolk across the Chesapeake Bay. Rejected by Pennsylvania Railroad executives, he raised the capital and built the 65-mile line himself, beginning a long period of prosperity for Cape Charles and the surrounding area.
