Situated on Irish Creek in a serene setting surrounded by the beauty of nature, this stunning contemporary-style home with a unique exterior design is the ultimate waterfront dream home. Conveniently located between St. Michaels and Easton, the home is an architectural masterpiece, offering lavish amenities and a peaceful lifestyle. The property, which was listed on February 7, 2017, closed on August 31, 2017.

The home, which was completely renovated by the sellers, boasts superior craftsmanship and exquisite architectural detailing, including vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, and awe-inspiring walls of glass that offer breathtaking views. The gourmet kitchen features white cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, an island with a cook top, and a wine refrigerator. Designed for luxury and comfort, the living room includes a cozy wood-burning fireplace and access to the deck. The charming sunroom, which features beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows, offers the perfect setting to relax and enjoy the tranquil views. And the master suite with a spa-like en-suite bath adorned with marble and tile is absolutely elegant. The home also includes a carpeted family room with a wood-burning fireplace on the lower level. 

The property’s exterior features, including a tennis court, in-ground pool, in-ground hot tub, cabana, outdoor shower, and a private pier, are equally luxurious and make spending time outdoors a delight. “The sellers saw the uniqueness of the property: a high quality ‘deck house’ built with mahogany and a lot of glass—almost like a tree house for adults—creating the illusion of living outside with nature but also using solar heat in the winter and the shade of the trees in the summer to reduce energy consumption,” says Cornelia C. Heckenbach of Long & Foster Real Estate, the listing agent for the property. “There was a mid-century vibe, and when approaching the house, you felt like you were visiting a ‘Falling Waters’ style home situated on a beautifully landscaped waterfront lot. The sellers appreciated the home’s ‘good bones’ and had vision. Their renovation transformed the property into a home that is perfect for modern lifestyles.”
