Custom-built Bluff Point home offers waterfront luxury

Bluff Point, located on the Severn River, is one of Anne Arundel County's most exclusive gated communities. Situated on more than an acre of waterfront property, this breathtaking, custom-built home at 653 Severn Road is on the market for $3.65 million.

"This has always been my favorite house in the development," said listing agent Travis Gray of Coldwell Banker. "It is located where the Forked Creek runs into the Severn River. The views are gorgeous."


Built of brick in true Southern Colonial style, the house is pleasingly symmetrical. A portico entrance leads family and visitors to double front doors.

"As you walk in, you are looking right through the house to the water," Gray continued.


An unusually wide center hall opens to a large living room off to one side and an elegant formal dining room on the other. The hall continues on toward a grand staircase and then to a two-story sunroom.

A two-story master suite and a two-story family room are located on either side of the rear main floor, while a library and gourmet kitchen each open to screened-in porches. The kitchen includes a separate breakfast bar and nook.

Another master suite and three additional bedrooms are found on the second level. The home has five full bathrooms and two half bathrooms.

The lower level features a 1,600-bottle-capacity wine cellar opening to an outdoor patio, a large storage area and a five-car garage with a dumbwaiter leading directly to the kitchen above. Hardwood floors are found throughout the home, and the lot contains a private, deep-water pier.

Additional amenities include an air cleaner, central vacuum — which has outlets for vacuum hoses in each room of the house — all appliances, ceramic tile baths, built-in bookcases, crown molding, wainscoting, atrium and bay windows, French doors, tray ceilings and two fireplaces. Outdoor features include extensive landscaping, floodlights, an underground sprinkler system and fountains.

The public is invited to an open house today from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
