Breathtaking estate is the ultimate retreat set on about 6.5 acres with an arms-length list of amenities. Words are inadequate. Pictures will give you some idea, but a visit will cement your desire to own this property. More than 1.8 million dollars of renovations and upgrades. Recent contractor estimates the cost to replace just the main house is almost $4.7 million. Privacy galore but not remote from civilization. Power and telephone is reliably provided by underwater cable; no need for generator. Both AT&T and Verizon provide mobile service and satellite dish provides cable TV. Home is designed for entertaining either family-style, or, extravagantly in a more formal style. Gourmet kitchen provides enough space to prepare a banquet. However, when you wish to be alone, the landscape vistas and wildlife will entertain you! The rain on the copper roof will lull you to sleep. Any guests may moor at your private docks. Sail or motor boats are welcome. You may receive your guests in a marble floored rotunda entry. Accommodate overnight guests in the main house, a detached cottage with its own kitchen, or, uniquely, in the renovated, detached water tower with 360 degree views (currently used as an office). Be careful, they may never leave! Stage a murder mystery game in the basement with its massive built-in safe or store an extensive wine collection. The main house even has room for an addition if you just can't get by on 6100 sf of space (not counting the cottage, basement and water tower) The island itself spans 16 acres with over 0.5 miles of pristine waterfront protected by granite stone revetment, bulkhead, and sandy beach. The location is on the south side (allows you to avoid congestion of bridge traffic). Close to the historic Annapolis waterfront, convenient to Washington, DC, steeped in the nation's history and diverse culture, you and your family and guests may partake of excellent dining, shopping and sightseeing opportunities. Odds are, however, you will be sorely tempted to remain within your own tranquil and beautiful environs. The house runs 197 feet with an incomparable view looking south by southeast one and one-half miles across Round Bay. Built with materials of the highest quality; the marble floors are imported from Belgium, The wood floors are made of wide plank mahogany or original southern pine. Roofs are solid copper with copper flashing, gutters, downspouts and snow guards. Eight chimneys serve four working and four decorative fireplaces. Coffered ceiling, crown molding and wrought iron windows with leaded mullions add architectural interest. Sixteen hundred feet of deep-water frontage include 170 feet of sandy beach. Three hundred sixty feet of commercial quality pier is outfitted with three electric boat lifts, one deep water boat slip for a 110-foot yacht, 230 volt, 100 amp electric service, good lighting and potable water. Outbuildings include a 330 sf office atop the converted brick water tower with a 360 degree water view, and a guest or caretaker cottage. The latter is a 1-bedroom/1 bath (with full kitchen and screen porch) 850 sf residence. The water tower office has mahogany trim, bamboo floors, unique lighting & bracing with AC & heat as well as a functioning wood stove. A VHF and HF antenna allow radio communication to boats and stations around the world. Round Bay and Little Round Bay completely surround the island, creating an ideal "safe harbor" against storm and those who would do harm to a wealthy owner. Access is provided by deep water (16 feet minimum) from the Chesapeake Bay and limited access highway from I-95, I-97, Rte 50; BWI, Reagan, and Dulles airports, as well as the local Edgewater airport; on island landing space for Medivac helicopter. Must see to believe!
