CONVENIENT WATERFRONT IN TALBOT COUNTY
This four-acre waterfront retreat is located halfway between St. Michaels and Easton and offers more than 3,000 square feet of comfortable living space. The Cape Cod-style home was originally built in 1992 and enjoys gorgeous sunset and water views over Newcomb Creek and out to the Miles River. The numerous upgrades and additions include: a 40-foot kidney-shaped cement pool; fully-fenced rear yard; granite and Corian counters; and a 90-foot dock with multiple slips and electric.
This waterfront home offers generously sized living and dining rooms with Georgia Pine fl oors and a well-equipped kitchen. There is a family room, full bath, and waterside screened porch on the fi rst fl oor as well. The second story has three well-proportioned bedrooms and two additional full baths. All of this on a nicely landscaped lot with good water depth for the fleet.
This lovely home was priced right for its current market, enjoyed multiple showings, and went under contact swiftly by astute buyers. Again the sellers were able to move on in a timely fashion as the lucky buyers acted promptly on this exceptional offering. This home was realistically offered for $899,000 and settled soon after for $840,000. A smart deal for all involved.

BEAUTIFUL BAY FRONT RAMBLER
ON THE CHESAPEAKE IN KENT COUNTY
This expansive 3,500-plus-square-foot home is only matched by its expansive and breathtaking views of the Chesapeake Bay. Tolchester Heights is the setting for this roomy and warm one and a half story traditional rambler well-positioned on over three waterfront acres. The main level boasts a sizable living/dining room combination with a wood-burning fi replace. There is also a family room, gourmet kitchen, master suite with whirlpool bath, along with another bedroom and full bath. The second level offers four bedrooms and two more full baths. This makes a perfect setting and enough space for entertaining family and friends together.
The waterside wall of windows allows just about every interior room a view of sloping green lawns and sparkling bay waters. The lot and community are well-positioned and extremelyclose to Tolchester Marina and all community amenities.
Originally listed in April 2011 for $895,000, this home was well-priced from the start. It took six months to go under contract and settled a short time later for $675,000. Though this may seem to be a drastic reduction in price it follows prevailing sales trends and sold for just above its 2011 assessed value. A true waterfront gem that is close to Chestertown in the beautiful country of Kent County Maryland.
