4703 Chesapeake Avenue in Shady Side is perched overlooking the West River on the left and the Chesapeake Bay ahead. This is truly one of the most spectacular views anywhere! Shady Side is a resort-like location with a low-key way of life. This 4-bedroom property takes full advantage of its location, with a two-story wall of glass in the great room. Step out to the waterside deck and stroll down to the private pier with 4 ft water depth for a day of fun on the Bay. This would make an ideal weekend retreat or it would be a calming full-time home — waking up to these unbelievable views every single morning.
As you step inside, you’ll immediately notice the hardwood floors throughout the main level. The great room includes casual seating around the wood-burning fireplace, a gourmet kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, and a dining area. The kitchen has granite counters and offers water views to the chef as well as to the guests mingling at the large island. There is a pantry/laundry off the kitchen as well as a full bathroom. The main level master suite opens to the waterside deck. Just like the great room, the master bedroom also has a wall of glass facing the Bay. The bedroom also has hardwood floors and there is a walk-in closet. The master bathroom has a double sink vanity, soaking tub, and separate shower. Fun tidbit from a previous owner: the vanity was designed as a replica of President Kennedy’s desk in the Oval Office! Upstairs, there are two bedrooms which share a “Jack and Jill” bathroom; one of them has water views. The fourth bedroom upstairs, with water views, is currently used as a den. It has a private bathroom. The top level has been finished and offers plenty of storage space. There is also an overflow bedroom possibility on the top floor. The oversized two-car garage provides additional storage.
Shady Side is an easy drive to Washington or Annapolis and makes a perfect weekend retreat. Experience the mesmerizing Bay views found here!
