Property description

For water lovers only, this bucolic cottage is perched on the water towards the head of the Magothy River that leads to the Chesapeake. The view of the water will wow you from the moment you arrive. The cottage features a panoramic 180 degree view of the water from a wall of windows and 6 sets of sliding glass doors. A wrap around deck encircles the cottage, complete with gas grill and deck chairs where you can enjoy your wine or coffee overlooking the river. A new dock extending out into the river for 72 feet completes the bucolic scene. Sit by the fire pit next to the water or enjoy the interior wood stove. You can tie your own boat at the dock or rent one for water activities. Use our two kayaks to explore the river and inlets where you will see bald eagles, ospreys, and other wildlife. This Magothy cottage was bought as a second home, renovated and lovingly furnished with antiques. The cottage features central heating and cooling, and has been made energy efficient by the owner, who is a professional in the energy efficiency industry. The cottage can sleep a total of six in two bedrooms: one on the main floor with queen bed, and one that occupies the entire second floor with double bed and double blow up mattress. The bathroom features a Jacuzzi tub and glass shower. The kitchen features new appliances. Washer and dryer. TV with cable. Wireless FIOS internet. Barbeque on the deck. This Magothy cottage is ideal for one couple with children or two couples looking for peace, serenity, and access to the water.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We live in Pittsburgh and bought our Magothy Cottage with an eye towards retirement except that we are not ready to retire! Babs Carryer is an entrepreneur and professor of entrepreneurship; Tim Carryer is an energy efficiency expert.

Why the Owner Chose Pasadena, MD, USA:
We love the water, we love boating, and we love the Chesapeake. Magothy River Cottage is in an ideal location: on the water, close to Chesapeake Bay, and yet close to wonderful towns and cities like Annapolis, Washington DC, and Baltimore. The climate is temperate and the seasons are lovely.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The view is stunning from daybreak to dusk. It is the most relaxing and inspiring house we have ever seen. While there are lots of activities to do around boating and other, we often just enjoy the view and the peace and quiet of the river.
