Arguably the best offering on the Eastern shore, qualities of grace and authenticity are at the heart of every aspect of the design, renovation and re-creation of the grounds, house and outbuildings of this magnificent estate. Located between the towns of St. Michael~s and Easton, Maryland, this turnkey property prioritizes water views, outdoor living areas, and lovely furnishings to create a place for large family gatherings. This country, waterfront retreat was designed by architect G.L. Smith Associates and renovated and expanded by Visnic Homes. Overlooking the Miles River with sweeping views, the estate offers a tranquil vibe with a perfect blend of elegance and comfort.Part of the main house renovation and expansion included opening up the home to incorporate water views and create a view from the front entry through to the rear foyer. A radial sun room was added at the end of the front hall foyer featuring curved walls to maximize the panoramic views. This room is breathtaking and provides the perfect spot to sip morning coffee while reading the newspaper or your favorite book. The most significant characteristic of the interior architecture and construction is the great room, featuring a WWIII fighter plane replica hung upside down.Transforming the landscape literally left no stone unturned. Work included adding the improved main entrance and driveway, a new pool and pool area with a fireplace and pergola-covered seating, tidal pond restoration, new paths, walkways and sidewalks. Central to the landscape, however, is the art and architecture, including sculptures side by side with flowers, shrubs, and imagined church "ruins" designed and inspired by the homeowner's native England. A garden of climbing roses and Boston ivy help create the impression of a church abandoned hundreds of years ago, a perfect spot for a wedding or religious event.Symmetry is evident on the grounds with the revised main entrance and redesign of the two flanking outbuildings that create cohesiveness on the property. On the right side, the original existing barn was transformed into a caretaker's cottage and garage to match the main residence's style. The outbuilding to the left was transformed into a spectacular guesthouse with water views, connected to the main home with a newly constructed breezeway.The rest of the approximate 36 acre estate offers a four stall barn, multiple paddocks, airplane hangar, 1800 foot grass runway, two bedroom farmhouse, large equipment barn, rip-rapped shore line, pond, and private dock with electric boat and jet ski lifts.
