MLS DESCRIPTION

Cooled by the prevailing summer breezes off Otter Pond, reputedly the largest natural freshwater lake in Maryland, North Cove Cottage is sheltered from winter winds by ridges and three hundred acres of mature woods to its north. A winding gravel driveway lined with hollies and hardwoods leads to this private pond retreat.With four bedrooms and four full baths in total, open the front entrance Dutch door and look down the screened piazza through the house to Otter Pond to the Bay, the Bay Bridge, and Kent Island. Walking through the house, the pond side begins with a large sunny bluestone patio. To the left, a shaded deck overlooks the head of the cove and is perfect for enjoying lunch while watching eagles working the cove and along the pond's southern shore. Ahead is a compact lawn and path curving to a firepit circle and six iconic Gibson Island chairs for three-season social distancing al fresco. And, during Covid days, potentially four-season with a propane heater or two! In the summers, wend off to the right down to the welcoming steps ascending to the dock for the best swimming on the Island. Or bask on the dock, put in your fishing rod, go canoeing, kayaking or paddle boarding.This very solid house was completed in 1950 and has enjoyed many significant upgrades. The original cottage is masonry block construction finished in stucco. The unique feature of the house is a 45-degree radius turn to capture additional water views and prevailing summer breezes. Two bedrooms on the main level share an updated bath. Relax in the living room with incredible water views and enjoy a crackling fire in the large fireplace, or watch a movie in the curved, paneled den/music room with full bath, or have a dinner party in the dining room overlooking the water after preparing a delicious meal in the recently updated kitchen. A sleeping porch was enclosed in 1999 to become an inviting sunroom looking east through a screen of trees over the north cove of the pond. Its stairs lead down to a large on-grade room also looking over the pond, now a sculptor's studio--it awaits your imagination for its next transformation. A sunlit bedroom looking to the woods, its full bath, and large storage/utility area complete this level. An oversized garage with plenty of storage space offers elevator access to the house. A two-story Charleston Single-inspired addition was built for the owner. With matching stucco, it preserves the integrity of the original cottage and provides a second level screened piazza with a very private en suite master bedroom suite that can be thrown open to gentle breezes and morning bird calls. This addition connects to the original cottage via elevator and stairs to the lower level piazza. Delbert Adams, a highly regarded builder who also constructed the Gibson Island Club House, built this retreat in 2011.
