This home has a long and very interesting beginning as the Director's abode for the Aspen Institute. The Director's family and the Callahan's have been the only two inhabitants. The house was commercially built by Mr. Houghton whose pick of Architect was very influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright and was positioned very close to the Wye River which is unheard of now. When looking at comps realize that this property is closer to the water then most and has a high elevation from MLW. This provides for views from within the home that are unequalled in terms of water views. In fact some views are only of water giving the illusion that the home is actually built on the water. Breath taking. The short boating distance to the Chesapeake Bay thru Eastern Bay plus the sail boat depth water around Wye Island makes any boating possible. The pier is equipped with a power boat lift, jet ski lift and deep water for a large boat. Moreover the property is protected by Wye Island as a barrier to and along storms moving up the Bay. The views of Wye Island are unobstructed with Sunrises and Sunsets dancing off the water. The purchase of a contiguous 9.34 acres of land increases the nature appeal as well as privacy. Moreover, the land is contoured to easily contain a 5,000 SF pond that would be inviting to nature and man. The Landscaping provides a patio on the water side as well as a patio with an enclosed court yard looking out on the nature side. The inviting front circle drive can be a setting for a theme of whatever interest the new owner wishes. This home is located 5 miles from rout 50. Chesapeake College and an New Emergency Medical Center plus BWI Airport and Easton Airport are all very close plus 30 minutes to Annapolis or Easton and less then an hour to Washington DC. High speed Fiber Optics are now available. Buyer must promise to Dance the Moonlite nights away on the open deck off the Master Bedroom and enjoy the Beautiful Sun Rises. Simple stated enjoy all nature has to offer. Worth the visit.
