About the Property
5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12 With Spectacular Sunset Views
The picture gallery certainly attests to the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words”. The main entrance opens to the second floor foyer and hallway which, on the right, leads to a bedroom suite (queen bed) decorated in a colonial Jamaican motif. The bedroom has direct access to a bathroom on one side and a screened-in porch on the other. The bathroom has both a shower and a Jacuzzi bath tub and a circular window inviting views of the bay and nature.
Continue down the hall and you step into a spacious open living room and reading area with a 30 foot ceiling. Before you is the 180 degree view of the Bay seen through a stacked row of wall to wall windows rising from floor to ceiling forming the perimeter of this octagonal home. From this elegant and, above all, comfortable living area you have access to both an open deck and screened-in porch with ceiling fans to augment the natural breeze. It is furnished with a teak dining set, Adirondack chairs set around a coffee table and of course, a hammock.
Off to the left is the dining room with glass again all around, offering views of the bay and the wooded acreage. Adjacent to the dining room is the well-equipped kitchen, which is open to both the living room and the dining room. In addition to the fridge, dishwasher, Jenn-Air oven, and microwave, there is a Kitchenaid mixer, a blender and of course lots of pots and pans, utensils, etc.
From the reading area, ascend the stairs leading up to the 3rd floor balcony overlooking the main living area and the bay. The balcony features a bedroom suite with queen bed, including a sitting area and a designer bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, separate shower and double sink. In addition, the suite has its own deck so you can sun and relax in private.
The first floor opens at ground level to the boardwalk leading to the dock. It encompasses a central recreation room perfect for large screen TV viewing, a bathroom and 3 bedrooms (one with a king, the other two with queens). Each bedroom has a view of the bay and is tastefully decorated in its own unique style. This level is also where you will find the laundry room and a pantry with a second refrigerator.
Our deep water dock is perfect for crabbing, fishing, jumping in for a swim without touching the bottom, lounging on a stationary inflatable float or paddling around in a canoe or kayak exploring the shoreline. Also perfect for just sun bathing and relaxing with your family and friends and your favorite beverage, taking in the beautiful scenic setting as you hear the waves splashing up against the shoreline.
The dock is just one of many spots to take in the splendor of the ever changing palettes of color that are the unforgettable light show of the slowly descending sun, with its shimmering rays reflecting across the bay and the rolling hills of the distant shore. Of course the same show is available from the two open decks, the screened porch or in the comfort of any number of rooms in the house.
The acreage surrounding and adjacent to the house is the home of bald eagles which can regularly be seen perched on the tall lob lolly pines close to the house and soaring in the sky, or diving for fish they have spotted from on high. No need to go to the Blackwater Refuge if bald eagles are your only desire, although we highly recommend all the other attractions the Refuge has to offer!
Other outside activities include horse shoes, bocce ball, biking, kite flying, combing the adjacent shore for Indian arrowheads, sea glass and fossils and if you have any interest, there is a telescope to star gaze in the crystal clear night skies. Of course you can also sit around a fire pit late into the evening and roast marshmallows and s’mores.
Bring your bikes and explore Taylors Island’s four square miles which are crisscrossed by just eight roads. Enjoy and experience the marshes, farm land and woods and the wildlife that can be seen in its natural setting. Seek out and visit the various churches established there in the 17 and 1800’s. Don’t forget to plan lunch, dinner or drinks at The Island Grille or Palm Beach Willeys, both of which are located adjacent to marinas and boat ramps. Fishing charters can be arranged from the marinas, as well. You have the opportunity to experience some of the best fishing on the Chesapeake, especially famous for the Rockfish.
About 18 miles before reaching Taylors Island is Cambridge, which is your last chance to do serious grocery shopping. You may very well want to visit and explore this quaint town during your stay and enjoy its shops, art galleries and restaurants. Just outside of town is the Hyatt Regency Resort which has a gorgeous golf course and wonderful spa facilities. Also nearby are charming Oxford, Easton and St Michaels, with an abundance of culinary and cultural offerings including various Harriet Tubman historic sites. About halfway between Cambridge and Taylors Island, take a slight detour to find Blackwater Wildlife National Refuge, which is a top destination for nature lovers. You can explore on your own or join organized bicycle and or kayak tours offered by Blackwater Paddle and Peddle
