Situated on the Eastern Bay in a private, idyllic setting, this two-level contemporary-style home boasts all the features that waterfront buyers desire, including walls of glass that offer spectacular water views, multiple decks, a sandy beach, and lovely landscaping. The property, which was listed on December 29, 2015, closed on August 23, 2017.

“It is a lucky day for any waterfront buyer when they find the home that features all three top items on a typical buyers’ wish list: big water views, a modern, open floor plan, and a house that needs cosmetic work only, if any,” says Carolina Barksdale of Benson & Mangold Real Estate, the listing agent for the property. “And so it was a lucky day for the buyers of this spacious home in Tilghman when they decided to drive the extra few miles down St. Michaels Road onto the island to check out this home, which met all their needs.” 

The beautiful home features a spacious, light-filled, two-story main-level living area that offers a sense of openness and a warm, welcoming atmosphere. With impressive walls of windows, a cozy gas fireplace, hardwood floors, and access to the waterside deck, the stylish living room provides the perfect setting to gather with family and friends to relax and enjoy the views. The elegant kitchen features ample white cabinetry, granite countertops, a breakfast bar, and hardwood floors. And the master bedroom suite with a gas fireplace, hardwood floors, and a spa-like master bath with two vanities, a soaking tub, a custom shower, two walk-in closets, and a private deck is absolutely luxurious. 

The second level features a family room with carpeting and a charming sitting area with hardwood floors and a balcony. In addition, charming exterior spaces, such as a waterside screened-in porch with a hot tub and a covered front porch, greatly enhance this beautiful waterfront home—offering ideal settings for relaxation.

“The buyers had looked around quite a while and couldn’t find anything in their price range that fit their needs,” Barksdale says. “Tilghman is a little farther out from St. Michaels, but it has really good waterfront values. What sold the house, besides meeting the buyers’ needs, was Tilghman Island itself with its village character, its many amenities, such as the restaurants and well-stocked corner store, the lively and welcoming year-round community of many full-time residents, and opportunities to bike and walk around the island and enjoy the views and sights of the Chesapeake Bay from almost anywhere—without the hustle and bustle that one encounters in St. Michaels.”
