home perched 100 feet-high on a bluff overlooking the Chesapeake Bay


An exceptional architect-designed 6,105 square foot home perched 100 feet-high on a bluff overlooking the Chesapeake Bay – the Chesapeake/Delaware shipping channel in full view. Included in the sale is the adjacent .66 acre parcel, “LOT PAR 1-2 ON A PL S/S MONTGOMERY AVE.” You’ll never tire of watching the ships and daily sunsets through the floor to ceiling windows. Floors throughout are finished in quarter-sawn red oak. Bluestone surrounds the house and continues into the entryway that provides a dramatic dining space with a 17-foot ceiling and a waterview as the backdrop. Sweeping open floor plan is graceful and elegant in its simplicity – full of light, angles, white walls and stunning views from every window. Plenty of gallery-like spaces to display your art. A chef-designed gourmet kitchen is a cook’s dream, complete with a Thermador gas cooktop and electric double oven, two Subzero refrigerators, a Subzero freezer, under-counter Subzero refrigerator drawers, granite counters, and adjoining butler’s pantry and many more custom features. A must see. First floor master suite has two luxurious master bathrooms finished in limestone and two custom designed walk-in closets with built-ins. Nationally known artisan-designed cherry stair rail leads to the guest floor with four bedrooms, three full baths and a huge bonus room, which could make a wonderful studio or game room. There are never-ending bay views from almost every room in the house. Heating and cooling is provided by a geothermal system. A three-car garage continues the house exterior design with matching trim and cedar shingles. Dock your boat at the premier marina just a three minute drive away. Nearby is Rock Hall with more marinas, shops, restaurants, and a world-class jazz venue called the Mainstay. Twelve miles away is historic Chestertown with Washington College and more shops and restaurants. Within two hours to Philadelphia, Baltimore and DC. By appointment only. This is one of the finest designed homes on the Eastern Shore. Be sure to allow plenty of time for your tour.
