ANNAPOLIS, MD — This waterfront mansion hit the Annapolis market Thursday for nearly $7.4 million. The property sprawls across 7.92 acres on Little Aberdeen Creek, just off the South River. The estate, known as Silver Maple Manor, even features a private equestrian farm with a horse barn.
Back at the homestead, buyers will enjoy the nautical view from the heated saltwater pool. Mariners will appreciate the sizable boathouse and lift.
The interior is just as impressive. The lengthy driveway leads to the attached three-car garage and the enchanting doorway surrounded by ivy.
The entrance opens to the grand foyer with a 21-foot ceiling and a curving staircase. The entryway winds around to the formal dining room, the living room and the family room with a tray ceiling.
These entertaining areas connect to the upscale kitchen with a breakfast island. The butler’s pantry offers additional room for preparation with its dual ovens, second sink and chic wine cooler.
The owner’s wing sits on the other side of the first floor. This primary bedroom lies beneath a classy chandelier and crown molding. French doors open to the patio.
The primary suite also touts one of four fireplaces on the main level. The other three are in the living room, the family room and the screened-in porch.
The ensuite also sports a walk-in closet the size of a bedroom. The massive space includes a laundry room, built-in cabinetry and benches.
The bathroom belongs in a magazine with its dual vanities and makeup station. The stand-alone tub and the tile shower are as luxurious as could be.
The regal office completes the owner’s wing.
The second floor houses additional upscale bedrooms. The basement wine cellar rounds out this dream home.
