Obviously, waterfront properties are highly coveted. But whether prospective Eastern Shore homeowners are seeking to buy a waterfront home or a house that is not water oriented, they are sure to find a home that truly delights them. In this issue of What’s Up? with Eastern Shore Real Estate, we profile several properties—each luxurious in its own way.

Oxford Landing

Oxford, Talbot County

Primary Structure Built: 1998
Sold For: $865,000
Original List Price: $1,125,000
Last Sold/Price: $690,000 (2011)
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 3
Living Space: 2,804 sq. ft.
Lot Size: .21 acres

Seamlessly blending luxury and comfort, this two-level cottage-style home located on Town Creek is absolutely enchanting—offering warm, cheerful living spaces and an idyllic waterfront lifestyle. An added bonus: The dock on Town Creek was recently renovated, and the home includes a deeded deep water boat slip. The property, which was listed on May 13th, 2015, closed on July 18th, 2016.

The charming home features a contemporary design with an open floor plan yet maintains a traditional atmosphere throughout its luxurious interior spaces. The kitchen, which was fully renovated in 2013, includes granite countertops, tile backsplash, an island, high-end stainless steel appliances, a five-burner propane cooktop, and a wine cooler. Located on the second floor, the master bedroom features an elegant en suite bath, a sitting room, and a cozy gas fireplace. The home also includes a guest bedroom on the first floor with a newly renovated full bath.
“This home was designed by an artist and her son, who is an architect, to make optimum use of the water and to allow abundant natural light to flow throughout the home,” says Jane McCarthy of Benson and Mangold Real Estate, the listing and selling agent for the property. “It’s a bright home, and the high ceilings and reclaimed heart pine floors give it so much character. Plus, the renovated dock on Town Creek was a very important selling point, and the boat slip was included as part of the sale.”

A delightful waterfront retreat, the home also features several exterior elements that greatly enhance the property’s ambiance. The front and back porches offer the perfect setting to relax on summer days—perhaps in a comfortable rocking chair—while sipping a cold, refreshing beverage. The two beautifully designed second-floor decks boast stunning views of the lovely landscaped yard and the waterfront. In addition, the home includes a separate building that can be used for storage or as a workshop or studio.

The epitome of luxury, this two-level colonial home is truly a work of art—boasting luxurious interior spaces and exquisite detailing, including crown and chair rail molding, hardwood floors, cathedral ceilings, half-crescent windows, recessed lighting, and a skylight. The property, which was listed on September 1, 2016, closed on October 21, 2016.

The beautiful home features a spacious, well-appointed kitchen with granite countertops, tile backsplash, high-end stainless steel appliances, a breakfast bar, and a garden view window. With its chandelier lighting, the dining room is the perfect setting to enjoy a delicious meal with family and friends and truly dine in style. The magnificent family room features a wood-burning stove and glass doors that lead to the patio. And with its double vanities, soaking tub, and separate shower, the master bathroom is a relaxing retreat.

In a home with such luxurious interior spaces, spending time indoors and simply relaxing is truly an indulgence. But the home’s spectacular exterior features, including an in-ground pool and a putting green turf field, offer ample opportunities to enjoy the outdoors as well. Additional exterior elements that greatly enhance the property include a balcony, a front porch, an enchanting pergola, a fenced-in backyard, a three-car attached garage, and lovely landscaping.

In addition, the home is located in highly coveted Prospect Bay and offers a wealth of community amenities for residents, including a clubhouse, a swimming pool, a golf course, tennis courts, and a fitness center.

“The features and amenities included with this home allowed us to enter into a purchase contract in under one week,” says Judy Dinges of Benson and Mangold Real Estate, the listing agent for the property. “It definitely offers the complete package: top-notch finishes and all the bells and whistles. The home is also nestled in a wonderful community with amazing amenities.”
