A Country Estate nestled on a high bank of the Choptank River with unparalleled views of one of Chesapeake Bay’s highly traveled waterways.
Blue Water Farm…. This waterfront residence, on a 150-acre farm, was built in the early 1940s by a doctor who wanted a weekend residence away from the hectic pace of his New York and Philadelphia practice.
The property is situated on the Choptank River, a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. This family estate is a sportsman’s paradise with abundant waterfowl (it is in the Atlantic “flyway” of the migrating ducks and geese) and provides some of the best fishing and boating activity on the East Coast.
A mile-long private lane offers a beautifully landscaped transition from the hustle and bustle of urban activity to a charming Georgian colonial residence with 6,000 square feet. There are 7 bedrooms and beds for 16-20, as well as 4 bathrooms.
The center hall leads to a large living room with fireplace and bay window overlooking the river. The reading nook leads to a cheerful dining room with another bay window. The main floor also includes a separate wet bar, a powder room and large porch with a fireplace over-looking the swimming pool and the river.
A butler’s pantry and a family kitchen connect the main house to the secondary house which includes two pine paneled bedrooms with a full bath, a first floor bedroom with full bath, and a laundry room. The second floor of the main house contains a large master bedroom with a fireplace and a half bath and two bedrooms with a full bath.
The adjacent fully functional pool house lies directly on the river’s edge. This building consists of a large recreation area (pool table, ping-pong, air hockey, poker table and weight machine and free weights) with a fireplace and a bar. A fully equipped kitchen makes this building an ideal location for additional festivities.
The main house and the pool house offer unparalleled views of the Choptank River, which is an ever changing panoroma of wildlife, fishing and pleasure boats, sunrises, and a fascinating montage of changing weather and sea patterns. Blue Water Farm is a haven for the urban commuter and an ideal place to bring the family or have that memorial event!
