1524 Gordon Cove Drive, in the Annapolis community of Watergate, offers the winning combination of spectacular views, one-level living, waterside pool, and private pier in a richly landscaped setting. The 3,700+ sq ft home is situated on a very private, half-acre lot that takes full advantage of the amazing views down Fishing Creek and across the Chesapeake Bay. If you time your cocktail hour right on the new mahogany and teak deck, you can see the cruise ship as it heads from Baltimore down the Bay; this location is also a haven for bird-watchers. Flocks of swan and ducks gather around the pier year-round. The pier has 5 ft water depth and a lift. There are pilings (and electric) to accommodate a second lift, as well as a fish cleaning station.
As you step into the foyer, your eye is immediately drawn to the wall of glass overlooking the pool, out to the water. The current owners replaced all of these sliding doors, so they have excellent insulation value that bring all the views inside. And, the vaulted ceiling with new skylights (also a new roof last year!) only adds to the light, bright feeling throughout the public spaces. The great room features a gas fireplace set in a gorgeous stone wall. There is a wet bar with new ice maker. The adjoining kitchen and dining area also has amazing views. There are plentiful cherry cabinets, some with glass front doors for displaying your treasures. Dine at the breakfast bar or at the table – even better, step out for al fresco dining in the warm months. There is an almost new infrared grill conveniently located just outside the kitchen.
There is a bedroom wing on each side of the home. The master suite incorporates a bedroom, library with built-in shelves & wet bar, an exercise room or office, and a deluxe bathroom. There are two options for the master bedroom: one is on the waterside (with wrap-around views) and the other is set off the water yet has sliding doors to a private deck. The walk-in closets are located in the second bedroom option. The spa-like bath includes a steam shower, jetted tub, and radiant floor heating. There are two more bedrooms, each with private bathroom, on the other side of the home. One of those has sliding doors to the waterside patio; the other overlooks the front garden. Other features of the home not to miss include a laundry room with storage, walk-in safe, two-car garage, underground sprinkler system, new roof, and whole house generator.
For those looking for one-level living in a spectacular waterfront oasis, this is the perfect home. Close to downtown Annapolis and commute routes, yet it’s a very private setting sitting by the pool. Jump on the boat and drop your line in the water in minutes…or just enjoy the birds that call this creek home.
