Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: Home Profile: I have lived on this property for 26 years. This home along with its beautiful perennial gardens,and creek are magical, and should be shared. I now devote all my time and attention to this lovely home. One of my passions is as a pastry chef, no longer full time, but still bake ,when not preparing for house guests. I enjoy the whole process of preparing for the arrival of a new family, ensuring that the home exceeds all expectations.

Why the Owner Chose Highland Beach, MD, USA:
There are a thousand tributaries to the Cheasapeake Bay, this one little slice of heaven was little known, but has gained some notoriety several years back, when LL Bean chose it as one of its only 2 spots for their popular Discovery kayak learning trips. Local Annapolis Author in his book ' Open Spaces, Sacred Places' features our exact location on page 23. Across the creek is acreage , expressly left as a nature preserve. The only thing you will see , as you wiling away the hours , are very grateful critters, and some boaters.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The expansive windows in every room, face east, so you enjoy the sunrise as well as the beauty of the moon on the creek , from the master suite as well as other perfect spots. One of the greatest attributes of this property is its beauty and peaceful, quiet surroundings. Additionally, the homeowner is available to help with set up table decor for dinner parties -rehearsal dinners, flower arrangement for tables, rentals essentially anything you need to assist in making your party, brunch or small event a success-
