One of the finest waterfront properties on Gibson Island in Anne Arundel County is the contemporary three-story stucco home at 1621 St. Giles Road.
"[The house] is just stunning, with sweeping views across Otter Pond and all the way to the Chesapeake Bay, the bridge and the Baltimore lighthouse," said Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage agent Ellie Shorb, who has listed the property for $1.97 million. "You can see the water from every living space and bedroom."
These bright living spaces are part of the home's open floor plan. A large foyer greets guests, leading the way to a sun-splashed living room, dining room, den and kitchen. Three bedrooms include a master suite on the main level and two additional rooms on the second level. Three full bathrooms and two powder rooms ensure privacy for all guests and family members.
"There is a lot of potential for adding extra living space over the garage or in the enormous basement with high ceilings and open space," Shorb said. "There is also a backup septic on-site in the event the owner wishes to expand [the home's] footprint."
The premium lot (just less than 2 acres) is partly wooded and sits on the banks of a pond, with a small dock that is great for sunbathing and kayak storage. At the front driveway, a lush, azalea-filled garden offers contrast to the stucco of the home and the trees around it.
Additional amenities include built-in bookcases, a curved staircase and walls of windows on the main level. There is also an outdoor hot tub and a two-car attached garage.
