    Description

This luxurious home is established on high ground with commanding panoramic sunset views overlooking miles of the Elk River. From this vista, breathtaking sunsets look as if the river is kissing the sun. The property boasts 372 feet of waterfront and a 120 foot private dock with multiple boat lifts. The manicured estate starts as you pass through the large brick double gates down the illuminated graceful tree-lined driveway with circular access to both homes. You will enjoy the outdoor park-like setting that includes a sand volleyball court, fire pit, pool side barbecue, landscaped bridge, children's playground, picnic tables, tether ball, horse shoe pit and a scenic walking trail that meanders throughout the property with professional landscaping that complements the Chesapeake Bay location. This estate home has; two water view master suites, and additional spacious bedrooms, five full bathrooms, a professionally appointed gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and travertine tile floors, theater room, sparkling crystal light fixtures, spacious open design great for entertaining, beautiful mahogany library, glassed-in sun room, two cozy fireplaces and a heated saltwater pool! More than a bonus room, the estate has a full separate guest home which offers privacy from the main house with 1 bedroom, 1 bath, kitchen, large living room with fireplace, laundry room and screened in porch. Don't forget to check out the playhouse; a fun hideaway for gaming fun or peaceful seclusion. The main house, guest house and playhouse provide a combined total of 6,606 square feet of luxurious living area. Your desires to enjoy the Chesapeake lifestyle will be met here at The River House. Imagine yourself relaxing in your hot tub as the sun sets on the beautiful Elk River, taking a refreshing swim in your saltwater pool, fishing and crabbing from your own dock or jumping into your boat for a quick trip to Schaeffer's Canal House or The Chesapeake Inn. Maybe you'd like to take your jet skis or kayaks out for a fun time. Make memories with your family and friends that will last for a lifetime at this property. If you like to explore, there are many local opportunities. Practically in your back yard is the newly opened Ben Cardin C&D Canal Recreational Trail great for biking, jogging and walking.
