Situated on a secluded point of land on Luce Creek with 450 feet of water frontage and boasting stunning views of the Severn River, this one-level ranch-style home is an absolute delight. Although the custom-built home doesn’t have a pier, the property offers ample space to accommodate one, and a permit is currently in progress. The property, which was listed on April 1st, 2016, closed on June 17th, 2016.

Designed with luxurious interior spaces that maximize the water views, the beautiful home features an open floor plan and exquisite detailing, including vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors, which create an easy flow throughout the home. The spacious kitchen includes light wood cabinetry, ample prep space, a walk-in pantry, and access to the sunroom. With a cozy fireplace, a wet bar, and a magnificent wall of glass facing the water, the living room is the perfect setting to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views. The dining room also faces the water and opens to the sunroom. And with its two separate bathrooms and two walk-in closets, the master bedroom is definitely the epitome of luxury. The home also includes an office, which faces the front garden, and an adjoining library.

“This home is a hidden gem in the Annapolis area,” says Joe Bray of “Mr. Waterfront Team” of Long and Foster Real Estate, Inc., the buyer’s agent for the property. “The location cannot be beat since you have the luxury of being on the Severn River without having to cross the Severn River Bridge. You are also only a short stroll to downtown Annapolis.”
