On the banks of the wide Maynadier Creek off the Severn River in Crownsville, a light, blue-gray contemporary home commands the natural landscape around it — blue skies, mature trees and a high tide lapping at its shore.
Sitting on just over 2 acres in the gated Anne Arundel County community of Bayberry Hill, 1307 Eva Gude Drive is on the market for $1.8 million.
This three-level home, constructed of durable cedar siding, boasts extensive hardscape, a patio, wraparound porch, multiple decks, stone retaining walls and a private pier with an electric boat lift. A four-car garage includes a heated floor.
"This unique home is contemporary, yet it has traditional elements added, such as marble floors, beautiful crystal chandeliers and walls of windows in every single room to capture the magnificent water views," said Leslie Rose, director of luxury home marketing for the Creig Northrop Team of Long & Foster Real Estate
The 5,344-square-foot interior contains four bedrooms — one being an opulent master suite complete with sitting room, dressing room and a fireplace — four full bathrooms and one powder room.
A dual-sided gas fireplace (one of three) in the open, two-story foyer brings warmth to this large reception area, as well as to the elegant, adjacent dining room, where built-in china cabinets add to the classic charm.
"I like the way that the dining room and the formal living room connect; they're open to each other with one step down, which has a really nice feel for large gatherings." Rose said.
Amenities abound under spacious rooms that have been designed with cathedral and vaulted ceilings. A six-burner, professional-grade stove is a centerpiece in a kitchen that includes all high-end appliances.
A large recreation room and a game room are found in the lower level.
Located just outside of Annapolis, the home is minutes from all the shops and eateries of the state capital. Yet behind the gates of Bayberry Hill, this waterfront paradise is always waiting to welcome you.
