26310 Saint Michaels Road, Easton, Maryland, United States, 21601
Located between the towns of Saint Michaels and Easton, Maryland is arguably one of the best offerings on the Eastern shore. Extending approximately 36 acres, this amenity-packed riverfront estate has sold for $9 million according to property records on Redfin. The property hit the market in 2019 for $15.5 million. Built in 2002, this country, waterfront retreat was designed by architect G.L. Smith Associates and renovated and expanded by Visnic Homes. Overlooking the Miles River with sweeping views, the estate offers a tranquil vibe with a perfect blend of elegance and comfort. Part of the main house renovation and expansion included opening up the home to incorporate water views and create a view from the front entry through to the rear foyer. A radial sun room was added at the end of the front hall foyer featuring curved walls to maximize the panoramic views. The most significant characteristic of the interior architecture and construction is the great room, featuring a WWIII fighter plane replica hung upside down.
Transforming the landscape was a monumental task. Work included adding the improved main entrance and driveway, a new pool and pool area with a fireplace and pergola-covered seating, tidal pond restoration, new paths, walkways and sidewalks. Central to the landscape, however, is the art and architecture, including sculptures side by side with flowers, shrubs, and imagined church “ruins” designed and inspired by the homeowner’s native England. A garden of climbing roses and Boston ivy help create the impression of a church abandoned hundreds of years ago, a perfect spot for a wedding or religious event.
Symmetry is evident on the grounds with the revised main entrance and redesign of the two flanking outbuildings that create cohesiveness on the property.On the right side, the original existing barn was transformed into a caretaker’s cottage and garage to match the main residence’s style. The cottage offers 1 bedroom + den and full bathroom. The outbuilding to the left was transformed into a spectacular guesthouse with water views, connected to the main home with a newly constructed breezeway. The guest house offers 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, kitchen, laundry facilities, living room & dining room. The rest of the approximate 36 acre estate offers a four stall barn, multiple paddocks, airplane hangar, 1,800′ grass runway, two bedroom farmhouse, large equipment barn, rip-rap shoreline, pond and private dock with electric boat and jet ski lifts. This property has four residences. Main house offers 6 Bedrooms, 5 full baths, 4 half baths. The guest house offers 3 bedrooms, 2 baths. The guest cottage offers 1 bedroom, 1 bath. The caretakers house offers 2 bedrooms, 1 bath. The property had been on the market for $15.5 million with Sotheby’s International Realty.
