Resembling a series of gabled cottages connected together and stretching along the Wye River, this house was designed to accommodate a variety of functions for an active family – with interests including entertaining, gourmet cooking, quilting, wine collecting, boating, and dressage.
The home’s lineal plan layout affords water views from every room as well as direct access to terraces that facilitate indoor/outdoor living. Entertaining is enhanced by an open floor plan and a kitchen designed to serve both inside and outside spaces. A first floor master suite is contained in its own “addition” to the major volume of the house. Steeply pitched gables and deeply set eaves bestow the character of Maryland’s vernacular architecture. A colonnade connects the house to the pool house containing cabana, guest quarters, office, and three-car garage.
This is a home that warmly embraces its owners and their guests alike as they escape to the quiet of Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
