Designed by architect Mark Beck to enhance the natural beauty of the water and the wide variety of wildlife that makes its home on the Eastern Shore, this stunning one-level contemporary-style home is an absolute gem. Situated on Black Walnut Cove in a private, idyllic setting with more than 200 feet of water frontage, the home boasts exquisite detailing, including bamboo flooring, recessed/accent lighting, and walls of glass that maximize the beautiful views. The property, which was listed on November 30, 2016, closed on September 21, 2017.

Ideal for modern lifestyles, the stylish, light-filled home features an open floor plan that seamlessly blends the kitchen, dining, and living areas into one common space. The beautiful kitchen includes custom countertops, high-end stainless-steel appliances, large island with seating, breakfast bar, two extra deep sinks, and a built-in wine cooler. The dining room, which flows into the kitchen, offers spectacular views and access to the charming screened-in porch—perfect for entertaining or simply relaxing. A comfortable retreat, the living room features a cozy wood-burning fireplace, built-in bookcases, and a hidden TV cabinet. Soaring 13-foot ceilings and clerestory windows further beautify this space, which flows into the dining room. And the elegant owner’s suite includes a den/office nook, custom walk-in closet, and a luxurious master bath with a roll-in shower and custom tiles. 

Exterior features greatly enhance this spectacular waterfront oasis and include an in-ground waterside saltwater pool with an outdoor shower, a spacious waterside deck with outdoor speakers, and a barbecue area with a picnic table, gas grill, charcoal grill, and smoker. Indeed, the home is perfect for indoor/outdoor lifestyles and easily lends itself to enjoying the beauty of nature to the fullest. “Selling this home was such a rewarding experience because of the modern contemporary style that is not necessarily common for this area,” says Barbara Watkins of Benson & Mangold Real Estate, the listing agent for the property.
