Just outside of Oxford, MD this new offering is an architectural masterpiece showcasing the finest craftsmanship and construction materials in a tidewater setting that is sure to please. Set on a four acre parcel with southern exposure overlooking Cemetery Cove on Town Creek the waters of this property host an abundance of migratory waterfowl, osprey and heron. With over 1,200 feet of waterfront, secured where necessary with stone revetment, the property is improved by a dock with a 10,000 lb boat lift. Across the creek in Oxford are several first class marina facilities adequate for large yachts and sailboats. There is a short boat ride to restaurants, the ice cream parlor and nearby Tred Avon Yacht Club, host to competitive racing and World Champion events. The residence and its' surrounds are stated elegance. Perennial flower beds, pool with fountains, screened gazebo, blue stone and brick patios and terrace all join in an inviting and bucolic setting. Seen in the photos, this back yard is conducive to entertaining or quietly enjoying nature's wonder. The house was designed and thoughtfully built with convenience in mind for first floor living while providing ample opportunity to host guests and family alike. There are three guest rooms with baths en-suite on the second floor. The first two are above the centerline of the home off the foyer stair case with a sitting area / study. The third bedroom / bath suite is located off a second stair case near the kitchen / family room with its own studio, office and storage. And a third stair case adjacent to the master suite provides access to another large office / studio as well as additional storage. On the first floor the foyer sets the tone with significant architectural features evident in the crown moldings and detailed millwork. This home exudes quality craftsmanship in every detail. The hidden panel interior shutters in the living room, the radiant floor heating in the solarium, the reclaimed timbers through the vaulted ceiling in the kitchen and family room all boast an attention to detail only found with the finest builders. Casual living and dining are off the kitchen with a large wood burning fireplace. It is a spacious setting for informal gatherings with enough area to dine, revel and prepare meals together while quaint enough for quiet nights alone. Formal living and dining rooms, wet bar, butler's pantry, laundry room, powder room with shower off the pool terrace, large closets, storage and more storage are around every corner. The oversized garage opens to the utility rooms with a ramp and doorways through the first floor that are thoughtfully wider than usual. The master suite is truly a masterpiece with a high ceiling and views over Cemetery Cove and across Town Creek that capture life on the Shore. Two dressing rooms and a master bath that is tastefully appointed compliment this wing of the house. Too much to list to effectively convey, this home must be seen to be appreciated. It is an awe inspiring property and residence. From the architectural scale, scope and rendering of a timeless tidewater colonial to the exquisite taste in landscape design and quality from every aspect of this offering this offering is certain to please the discerning buyer.
