Whit Harvey Group’s Peek of the Week: Ruxton Dining Room

maureendining1Peek of the Week: Ruxton Dining Room

You know how you drive around Baltimore, or walk down the sidewalk in your neighborhood, you wonder, “Who lives there? I wonder what the inside of that home looks like?” At the Whit Harvey Group we are starting a new feature called “Peek of the Week”, where we get to visit the homes of friends, colleagues, and anyone else who will let us in. Peek of the Week launches today, with our own Maureen Lalley.

John and Maureen Lalley love to have friends over and their dining room is the perfect place for them to entertain. The southern-facing 12 over 12 windows let in plenty of sunlight during the day, and the wood-burning fireplace – which they use often in the winter – makes for warm and cheery holiday meals.

A clip from an archived post on the Whit Harvey Group blog, describing life on Gibson Island:

The limits of Gibson Island Harbor consist of a line north across the Magothy Narrows, beginning at the most northerly part of Holland Point. The enclosed waters including Red House Cove, constitute Gibson Island Harbor.

The Harbor Master’s office is manned year-round and the Gibson Island Yacht Squadron operates four facilities:

  • Boathouse and finger piers at the east end of the Harbor
  • Mooring field in Gibson Island Harbor
  • Lighthouse Dock slips at the west end of the Harbor
  • Red House Cove slips in Red House Cove
  • Light House Dock Hoists – 2 tonsIMG_3941

Moorings and slips are available on a seasonal, monthly, weekly and daily basis. There is a yacht repair facility with a travel lift, operating as Gibson Island Yacht Yard.

From canoeing, paddle boarding, and kayaking on one of the Island’s two freshwater ponds, to the Gibson Island Junior Sailing Fleet founded in 1924, there is something here for anyone who wants to spend time on the water.

Vacation House of the Day: Enchanted Cottage on Gibson Island- Vacation Every Day

Enchanting Cottage on Private Island

Everyone knows Gibson Island for its waterfront. It has 7 miles of shoreline, which includes frontage on the Chesapeake Bay and Magothy River. The sheltered harbor is filled with boats, and the Yacht Club hosts the Junior Fleet and sailboat racing. Admittedly, the beaches are lovely, the lakes are peaceful, and there is nothing quite like a day on the water. But there is another side of the island – the inside. Let’s go there.

About two-thirds of Gibson Island is set aside for recreation, forestry and wildlife conservation. The interior of the island is filled with sun-dappled woods, meadows and rolling hills. Paved roads feel more like meandering pathways, and there is a quiet solitude that is most apparent at 624 Cotterill Road.

IMG_09291

Nestled at the end of a tree-lined drive is an extraordinary custom-built cottage just up the hill from the clubhouse – close to all that Gibson Island has to offer, yet very private and off the beaten path. From the cobblestone driveway surrounded by landscaped gardens, to the cedar siding and French board and batten shutters, this Cape Cod was designed to enchant from the start.

Soaring ceilings, lofted spaces, skylights, French doors, and walls of windows fill the house with light. The river recovery heart of pine floors, carved antique wood mantel, window seats, dry bar and other custom details will fill you with delight. You can be master of all you survey from the second story loft. Click to view more.
