519 Scrimshaw Lane, located in the Severna Park neighborhood of Nantucket on the Severn, offers one of the most luxurious waterfront living options in the area. The 10,000 sq ft home has a refined elegance that is evident from the moment you enter the foyer and see the coffered ceiling in the living room, the Brazilian walnut floors, and the ipe deck overlooking the water. What makes the 4+ acre property so special is the combination of gorgeous living spaces, an elevator to all levels, an indoor pool that has a retractable roof and doors to allow in the sunlight and Severn River breezes, a private pier with two boat lifts, a waterside hot tub, and wonderful views of the Severn River.
Upon entering the home, there is a foyer with marble floors and elegant columns that lead into the great room. The great room offers a fireplace and enough space for a formal dining table and separate conversation area. There is a wet bar with beautiful built-in cabinets and granite countertop. Serve brunch or cocktails on the balcony and enjoy the views of the Severn River. Just beyond the great room is the superb kitchen with casual dining area. The super chef’s kitchen has a large center island with granite countertops, cherry cabinets, a Miele steam oven, warming drawer, as well as a full-size Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer, both with wood fronts to match the antiqued white cabinets. The adjacent family room has a fireplace, built-in bookshelves and cabinets, and more views of the Severn River. The main level also has a water view bedroom (currently used as a home office), full bath, walk-in pantry, sound system center, and access to the three-car garage.
Upstairs, you’ll find an incredible master suite, as well as three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and the laundry room. The master suite has a wall of glass overlooking the Severn River and fireplaces in both the bedroom and bathroom. The master bathroom is centered by a two-person jetted tub, separate vanities and toilet compartment, and there’s an oversized steam shower with ten showerheads. The bedroom features two, walk-in dressing room closets. Two of the additional bedrooms are designed as a suite; they share a bathroom with separate vanities. The fourth bedroom has its own private bathroom and views of the surrounding woods. There is a lounge area with TV for the upstairs bedrooms, and there are hardwood floors throughout. On the top level, accessible by elevator, the current owners have installed a state-of-the-art home theater. The top floor includes a wet bar, full bathroom, and there’s even an overflow sleeping area!
A quick ride down the elevator will bring you to a media/game room and large adjoining solarium with pool that will tempt your family and friends to visit all year long. In the winter, the pool area is enclosed in glass but, in the summer, the walls and ceiling open up allowing for an outdoor pool space with breezes off the Severn River. Step out to the hot tub with water views, or onto the stone patio with landscaped waterfall and BBQ area. The solarium has a gourmet kitchen with a large island, granite countertops, a Wolf stove, and a fireplace. The media/game room is large enough for a variety of table games as well as a large-screen TV; it also opens to the stone patio. A full bath with laundry is accessible from both the pool area and the game room. There is also a 6th bedroom on this level (currently used as an exercise room) with an adjoining full bath.
Some of the details not to miss in and around this spectacular estate include: a 60 KW back-up generator that services the entire home; geo-thermal heating and radiant floor heat in the walk-out lower level; extensive landscaping including a fish pond with waterfall; 10 ft ceilings on the main level, 9 ft ceilings on the 2nd floor, and 10 ft ceilings on the walk-out, lower level; tiled garage floor and Tesla charging station; elevator to all levels (two sided entry on main level so suitcases can travel directly to and from the garage!); irrigation system; RO water dispenser at the kitchen sink; and, new, 16,000 lb boat lift. This home is in the Severna Park school district. It is a totally private location yet it’s only a 20 minute drive to BWI.
