Sited on 530 acres, Island and Sanctuary Farm is nestled along the tranquil shores of the Broadkill River. This picturesque hunting retreat is graced by a world class three bedroom three bath custom crafted Log Home (Hunting Lodge) of more than 3500 square feet. The idyllic Hunting Lodge features soaring timber frame interior with timeless sophisticated amenities and is built to last for generations. Multiple fireplaces set the stage for fellowship and intimate family gatherings. Sweeping verandas surround a tranquil salt water pool creating the vantage point for dramatic Broadkill River front sunsets.
Perfect for hunting, fishing, or equestrian interests, this spectacular offering is adjacent to the Primehook Wildlife Refuge, designated by the American Bird Conservancy and National Audubon Society as a globally significant habitat. Preserving and protecting a diverse landscape featuring freshwater and salt marshes, grasslands, and forested areas, the sequestered acreage is abundant with diverse wildlife and open pastures.
This romantic paradise offers sanctuary to endangered and threatened species and provides habitat for the Delmarva fox squirrel, nesting bald eagles and migrating peregrine falcons. Migrating tropical land birds pass through and utilize the refuge's upland forested habitat during the fall and spring. Three ponds stocked with game fish, can be flooded to make substantially larger wildfowl improvements.
The property is improved by two 5 acre building envelopes along the Broadkill River, allowing for enhancement with additional custom construction. This creates an opportunity for 1/3 or 2/3 Fractional ownership opportunities, which may be considered. Additional amenities include a Pole Barn, improved boat launch, bulk head and dock. This infinitely private estate is an extraordinary offering seen once in a lifetime.
