Gibson Island Stunner To Get Away from it All

HOT HOUSE: 712 Stillwater Road, Gibson Island, MD 21056

A 1928 English country home on Gibson Island, with a private dock and frontage on freshwater, spring-fed Otter Pond: $3,295,000

What: A five bedroom, three and a half bath house on two stories, with superb views out the back. Beautifully situated, with panoramic views of both the Chesapeake Bay and Otter Pond, this house appeared recently in American Luxury Estates magazine. A screened-in porch and upstairs open porch have wonderful breezes in addition to the water views, and the house has a nice flow – great for entertaining but also for cozy family living. Inside, are the original edgegrain Georgia pine and cherry floors, plus radiant underfloor heat in  kitchen , breakfast room, bathrooms and office. The dining room has gorgeous floor to ceiling palladian windows and living room has a cathedral ceiling. Upstairs landing overlooks living room, and in addition to bedrooms, there is a large professional office with sweeping water views – could be either distracting or inspiring. Also,  skylights, fireplace, picture windows, electric awning, state-of-the-art heat and air conditioning. Separate oversized garage with workroom. The lot is .68 acres –not large, but with the time and money saved on lawn care, you can fish, swim or boat from your private dock. Otter Pond, all 42 acres of it, is your real backyard.  Or, join the Gibson Island Club, (not included with home ownership) and take advantage of world class yachting, pool, golf, tennis (on clay courts) and a popular summer camp for kids.  

Where: Not too close, not too far, Gibson Island is an easy commute-–about an hour from Washington, half-an-hour from BWI airport and Annapolis–but about 55% of the residents are full-time. There is a small elementary school just off the island. 

Why: If security is important to you, Gibson Island is the place. There’s a 24-hour, 365 day-a-year security guard on duty, and no one gets on to the island unless invited. Also, there’s a nice, slow pace here, without actually being “rural.” Feels like stepping back in time. 

Why Not: House is not as pretty from the street as it is from the back.

Would Suit: Tweeting congressman “getting help.” Foreign diplomat under a death threat.  Weekend commuters, or families who want a break from the action.
