Property Description

Get the BIG BAY VIEWS you've been looking for! With panoramic views of the Chesapeake Bay from every level, this Pasadena, Maryland home is the perfect waterside retreat for family gatherings, recreation and relaxation. After a day of boating, fishing or shopping, you’ll enjoy coming home to this calming retreat which was one of the original waterfront cottages built in the 1920's (tax record says 1948 because that is when the first tax record was recorded on the property). This home is conveniently situated 20 miles from Annapolis, 30 miles from Baltimore, and less than 50 miles from Washington, D.C., making it perfect as a primary residence, second home or as an investment property. The current owners lovingly renovated and structurally reinforced the home while preserving its history. Improvements include vinyl siding, new roof, dual zoned A/C, a finished the lower level with an additional kitchen. With all this, the home still maintains touches of the original woodwork and expansive views of the Chesapeake from every level. This home has been loved through the generations and has been restored to be loved for many to come. Arriving at the property, this residence stands out with its grey, coastal exterior, punctuated by a bright red door – with the picturesque Chesapeake Bay as its backdrop. The front door opens to the second floor of this three-level home. Here, you’ll find the first of two kitchens in the home with stainless steel appliances, dining room, living room, bedroom and full bathroom. A large year-round sunroom off the waterfront side of the home is the ideal place to serve drinks before dinner while taking in the commanding bay views as cargo and cruise ships pass by. Upstairs, there are two comfortable bedrooms and a full bathroom. Open glass doors from the primary bedroom to enjoy morning coffee or yoga facing the magnificent sunrise while connecting with nature on the large balcony overlooking the bay, where there are often sightings of bald eagles and ospreys. Evening entertainment or relaxation on the balcony features amazing views of the full moon rising across the bay. In the fall, you’ll marvel at the migration of thousands of rare Canvasback ducks, who cover the water in the bay. The lower level is fully equipped with a beautiful second kitchen, sitting area and bedroom,-both with large windows to take in the view, a full bathroom and large closets, creating a perfect space for a guest suite or for rental income. Open doors from this level onto the patio to enjoy the waterfront view or step onto the 90-foot dock to lower your boat from the lift and take it out onto the bay. The property also has a 20-foot fishing pier strategically located over the rocks, where fish hang out. Even in the worst storms, the home never had water in it, but as a precaution, the current owner has completely waterproofed it. The home’s floor was raised 30 inches and on the bay side, the yard was re-graded to a higher elevation and gravity fed (no sump pump) French drains were installed around the foundation. In addition, the dock was rebuilt and raised to accommodate higher water levels. The elevated dock has survived the worst storms, while neighboring docks have not. The home is not in a flood plain and flood insurance is not required. This property’s view will not be hindered as the adjacent land is in reserve, so no development can take place there, allowing the new owner to see as far as the Bay Bridge. The far side of the Reserve is Downs Park, to which the community has a private entrance so you and your furry family can enjoy trails and beaches. Additional inclusions are a security system on the home and detached shed, a remotely accessible video surveillance system, gas stoves in both kitchens, fresh paint throughout, a military grade computer router to prevent digital intrusion and a home warranty.
