131 Claiborne Road in Edgewater is tucked along the banks of Scotts Cove, right off of Beards Creek. This custom-designed waterfront home is situated on 2+ wooded acres, and epitomizes natural beauty and tranquility inside and out. It is reminiscent of some of the Shingle style homes of the late 19th century in the design of the façade and use of natural materials such as red cedar shingles and stone. The open floor plan allows for unobstructed water views from nearly every room, and the effortless flow of the space is ideal for entertaining family and friends. Boat to the South River from your private pier, or drive to historic downtown Annapolis in just 15 minutes.
When you step into the foyer, you are greeted by rich hardwood floors and the view across the living room through a wall of windows. A gas fireplace provides a comfortable conversation space, and a bright seating area is surrounded by three sides of windows with access to the waterside deck. Here you will feel as though you are floating in the trees! Adjacent to the living room, the dining area and gourmet kitchen continue the “great room” configuration which invites the natural beauty inside through all the glass. The kitchen gleams with granite counter tops, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances (including a 6-burner dual-fuel range, Advantium microwave, and trivection wall oven) and exquisite custom cabinets. A waterside screened porch with ipe flooring is a comfortable place to relax and enjoy the scenery. Off the kitchen, there’s a laundry/mud room with an oversized laundry tub, a built-in ironing board, and custom cabinets including pull-out pantry drawers.
The main level master suite has French doors to the deck, and a vaulted ceiling. A custom walk-in closet has an abundance of storage, and a private office space has a built-in desk, and built-in shelves and drawers. The spa-like master bathroom has a heated stone floor and a double-sink vanity with custom cabinets. The Jacuzzi tub has a waterfall faucet, and the steam shower with custom tiles has multiple body sprays. This retreat again reflects the use of natural materials in a natural setting.
The walk-out lower level features a spacious family room, two bedrooms, and a full bathroom. A second sunroom is a picturesque setting for a home gym, and there is a heated, indoor exercise pool. Swim against the current for year-round exercise! The upper level of the home features a private, attached in-law suite with separate HVAC zone. It is accessible from inside the main house, and it also has a separate outside entrance. The suite has two bedrooms, a full bathroom, a sitting room, and an office space with kitchenette that overlooks the water. This would be perfect for in-laws, visiting friends, or a home office!
This architecturally unique home offers the perfect setting for the nature enthusiast. The level of quality in this totally renovated home is evident in details such as the paver driveway, extensive sprinkler system, whole house sound system (SONOS), central vacuum, solar panels that heat the water, Rocky Mountain hardware, propane back-up to the heat pumps, and a new vinyl dock with water & electricity. Enjoy the waterfront lifestyle while maintaining proximity to major commute routes, shopping, and restaurants.
