'Gratitude' truly represents the best of the Eastern Shore. Sited on 3.76 private acres and located just minutes from Easton and St Michaels (Oxford by boat), this special property features a beautiful main home, gorgeous boat house, and quaint separate guest house. The owners have lovingly cared for and renovated almost all of the property which is evident from the moment you turn into the welcoming drive. The brick 5 bedroom/4.5 bathroom house is filled with light and offers water views from nearly every room. A gracious foyer leads to the living room, dining room, and den which all have fireplaces and exude charm. The waterside sunroom is everyone's favorite as it has high ceilings, multiple french doors, and takes in Shipshead Creek's quiet and stunning scenery. In 2009, the kitchen was renovated and added to with walls of windows, and features Viking appliances, a six burner gas range, granite countertops, double sinks, 2 dishwashers, bar area, and island with bar stools. A wonderful breakfast area and vaulted ceiling family room (with fireplace) are adjacent and add to the great design and flow. A large first floor bedroom and bath have it's own wing and separate outside entrance, making it ideal for guests/family. On the second floor, the primary bedroom has a fireplace and lovely balcony overlooking the garden courtyard. The bath was completely remodeled in 2011 with a large steam shower, double sinks, marbled floor with radiant heat, and a large custom built-in closet. Two additional waterside bedrooms (one with fireplace) and full bath are down the hall. On the third floor is another bedroom, sitting room, and renovated bathroom. On the lower level is a wine cellar with small tasting area, and dumbwaiter up to the dining room plus storage and cellar outside of the entrance.The coveted boathouse is good sized and ample for most boats while the pier offers 3 large slips and has 4'MLW (buyer to verify). The setting is one that is simply magical! A 1 bedroom/bath guest cottage (referred to as the 'Retreat' by the owners) was renovated in 2015 and includes a living room, bar kitchen, wood stove, and deck. Behind the cottage is the 'Barn' with boat storage and a 3 car adjacent garage with workshop. Extensive hardscaping and landscaping are evident throughout the property and include full irrigation and beautiful exterior lighting. There is ample room for a pool on the side which would have water views and the seller will consider selling furnishings.
