The open interior is complete with vaulted ceilings and plenty of windows to stream in natural light. Gorgeous details in the grand living areas, such as crown moldings and custom bookcases, add even more splendor to this impressive home.
Inside the serious “chef’s” kitchen are custom cabinets, a breakfast bar, gourmet appliances, and other favored features. The warmth of the wood floors and cabinetry mixed with the cool colors of the walls, trim, and tile give this home a comfortably elegant feel.
Outside sits a riverside pool and patio, as well as a six-foot-wide pier with a boat lift and enough space to dock several boats. This home has everything needed to lavishly entertain large numbers of guests.
A great find for the new owners, the home is conveniently located off St. Michaels Road, midway between historic Easton and downtown St. Michaels. Listed for $1.95 million, the home sold for just under the asking price in March.

For the Horse Lover
Enveloped by 13 pastoral acres in Queenstown, Hickory Ridge is a fabulous equine facility with a charming custom-built ranch home. This property has every amenity expected at a serious and professional equestrian center, yet it was priced well below similar offerings on the western shore. The complex includes a 28-stall barn, eight fenced paddocks, indoor and outdoor arenas, a 50-foot round pen, and an office with caretaker quarters.
All of these improvements are impeccably designed and maintained, as is the main house, which is complete with four bedrooms, three and a half baths, and a 30-by-50-foot great room with vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors.
The gourmet kitchen features a long, granitetopped island perfect for serving and preparation, while the appliances (including a dedicated wine refrigerator) are all top-of-the-line.
Whether this property is enjoyed privately by a horse-happy family or shared as a professional equestrian center and clubhouse, there is no question of future success and enjoyment. The complex sold in March for $900,000, after being listed for $995,000.
