About the Property

4 bedrooms, 2-1/2, with large open space and dynamic water views from every room

This home is perfect for your family vacation. It is and has been a memory maker for our family for many years. There's a special feeling of "home" as you walk in. The wide open views through all the glass captures you and draws you to the water. Step out on the deck from any room and take it in. The view to your left is the entrance to the Chesapeake Bay, straight across the Patuxent Naval Air Station, to your right is the Thomas Johnson Bridge that takes you to St. Mary's county. You are surrounded by the Patuxent River. One of the really unique conditions on the property is two micro-climates. The positioning of the house and the wrap around decking offer a "warmer" and a "cooler" temperature depending on the time of day. Enjoy the sunrise view AND the sunset over the bridge! Two pocket beaches for enjoying the sun or taking a dip. Large pier can accommodate a few people for fishing or crabbing. There's a sink for cleaning fish and seating while you are waiting for that big fish! Relaxing is easy in this beautiful and private setting. The town is full of neat places to visit, great restaurants, ice cream shops, charter boat fishing, boat and kayak rentals. Home is fully equipped for your stay. Spices, appliances, linens, towels etc....and the list goes on.
Additional detached suite available for two! Ask me for details.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: The Navy brought us to Southern Maryland, a long way from my hometown of Whidbey Island in Washington State. As a professional Realtor for 25 years, I was able to experience all of Southern Maryland. Although extremely different than my native land, I found its charm, personality & beauty an easy adjustment. Now, it is fun to have roots on each coast and I call them both home. I have 3 grown children and 10 grandchildren - some east and some west.

Why the Owner Chose Solomons, MD, USA:
I came across the Thomas Johnson Bridge in 1979 and spotted Solomons Island. I was in awe of the view scene and declared, 'I am going to live there someday' and I do. Calvert County is very special. Friendly and beautiful with many things to do and see.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The first time I walked through the front door of this home (and every time after), all I saw was WATER in every direction. From the deck I could see the Bay and the Naval Air Station across the River, also the Thomas Johnson Bridge. Lights on the shoreline made me feel a part of somewhere special. I knew that this was the home for me. What makes this little bit of heaven so special is its feeling of serenity and peace, unrivaled by any place I have ever been. I never tire of the beautiful ever changing scenery.
