Property description

For your family enjoyment, this riverfront retreat offers panoramic views and breathtaking sunsets over looking miles of the Elk River. ***Please no weddings/parties or other events*** Nestled on 5.5 areas on top of a 40 feet bluff above the water you will enjoy the water front lifestyle. From this vista, the river appears to be more like a lake with the sun kissing the water in the evening. The property has approximately 400 feet of waterfront, and 120 foot dock, equipped with three boat lifts, that provides deep water access to the Chesapeake Bay for fishing, water sports, and travel to other locations on the bay. 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 houses. You will enjoy the; outdoor park-like activity areas which include: sand volleyball court, tether ball, horse shoes, fire pit, barbecue areas, landscaped bridge, children’s play ground with swing set, picnic tables, scenic track for running or walking that meanders throughout the property, and professionally landscaped areas which complement the Chesapeake Bay’s setting and ambiance. This Estate home has; two full master suites, three additional spacious bedrooms, five full bathrooms, a professionally appointed gourmet kitchen, theater room, spacious marble covered living areas, a large mahogany library, glassed-in four season large room, two fireplaces and a complete reconditioned heated 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.

Sit by completely reconditioned in-ground pool and take in the amazing sunsets or take a soak in your spa/hot tub and enjoy the Eastern Shore lifestyle at this spectacular estate home.
This riverfront retreat borders next to a state park and the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal and is a convenient drive to Wilmington DE, DC and NYC.


We do not permit weddings or other parties or events to be hosted at the property. Occupancy is strictly limited to 15 people.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are both from the northeast and have always enjoyed our summers with the warm weather and outdoor activities. We love real estate and when we first visited this home we saw so much potential. We have carefully and methodically thought through every improvement and change we have made to the property. We really treasure our time at La Casa Del Rio - The River House.

Why the Owner Chose Elkton, MD, USA:
For years and years we searched for the perfect vacation home for our family. It seemed like everywhere we looked, our time was spent fighting traffic and navigating our way through the sea of other tourists. We actually 'stumbled upon' this amazing home and decided it would be perfect for us and so many other families. It is large enough to host multiple families and generations. Also, for the couple or even in-laws that want more privacy, the guest house is an incredible and spacious retreat.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The views, the views, the views are amazing! You will simply melt with the sunsets.
