As you step into the foyer you immediately notice the beautiful hardwood floors and the wall of glass ahead. The living room windows overlook the private waterside yard and make the space an inviting spot for relaxing or entertaining family and friends. Relax by the raised hearth fireplace with stacked stone-surround, custom built-ins, and direct access to the waterside deck through the glass doors. The gourmet kitchen has stunning cherry cabinets, marble backsplash, huge center island with prep sink, upgraded appliances, and a custom wood and marble-surround gas fireplace. One fun detail to note: the natural coloration of the backsplash over the range depicts a crab! The “great room” configuration means the dining space adjoins the kitchen and offers the same great water views through a wall of windows. Two large skylights mean plenty of natural light even on a cloudy day. There’s also a reading nook, with built-in window seat overlooking the water. A pantry/storage area leads to the large mud room with direct access outside – so convenient for bringing in groceries. The full bathroom on this level is next to the mudroom and includes a walk-in shower, an easy stop if someone has been swimming in the creek and needs a rinse off.
Upstairs the primary bedroom suite has sweeping views and a luxurious en-suite bathroom. It includes ample closet space and a sitting area with built-in bookshelves. There is a second bedroom on this level overlooking the front garden and a full bathroom. Down the hall is a spacious room that could easily include a home office, exercise room, and/or school space. It has fantastic water views and a private balcony. If the sofa here converts to a bed, there’s no doubt you’ll have guests lining up to stay over. A few steps down from the great room is a family room with wood-burning fireplace and glass doors that lead to the waterside patio and hot tub. The custom built-ins, natural light, and water views from this space make it warm and inviting. There are two more bedrooms on this level and a fully remodeled hall bathroom. The lower, walk-out level offers tons more storage, including a large space for boat items that has double doors leading outside. The laundry is also on this level.
This property has been extensively landscaped and offers a beach area to launch kayaks as well as a recently rebuilt bulkhead that leads to the deep-water private pier. The location, almost at the intersection of Ridout and Whitehall Creeks, provides countless boating options. There is a one-car garage and plenty of parking in the driveway. An electric car charger is already installed. Amberley offers good commute options to downtown Annapolis, Baltimore, or DC yet the neighborhood maintains the “away from it all” appeal. Schools include Windsor Farm Elementary, Severn River Middle, and Broadneck High School.
