Main House: SHIMMO ESTATE This Cape style home in the Shimmo hills is set on an outstanding 1.89 acre estate worthy property in what I feel is the best part of Shimmo. Ownership assures tremendous privacy and membership in the exclusive Shimmo Association allowing access to the harbor beach with parking at the end of the lane. This rambling, vintage 4 bedroom, 3 bath home with 2 car garage and apartment shows deferred maintenance and would be a great restoration project. Built in 1975 some may consider the option to remove the house and custom build something new. The house and garage cottage sit on a nice ridge with the bulk of the property sloping gently down towards the harbor with the landscape resembling that of a park. I am told there is an extensive irrigation system in place. There are views of the harbor from the 2nd floor, thinning of some trees on the property would certainly help accentuate that. I think it’s an amazing opportunity just waiting for a visionary to execute the potential and turn it into an estate worthy of this unique and beautiful setting. Plenty of room for a pool and tennis court. Easy to show!
