Nestled jewel-like on just under eight acres, Silver Maple Manor is a waterfront equestrian estate situated on Little Aberdeen Creek. Designed with a European flair by ABS Architects principal Scarlett Breeding, you'll experience thoughtful details and exceptional beauty, along with the finest materials and craftsmanship throughout this expansive property. The grounds include a private drive canopied by the silver maple trees from which the estate takes its name. Perched along the water of Little Aberdeen Creek, leading to the South River, you'll find multiple boat slips, two boat lifts, a cedar boathouse and three protected deep-water piers suitable for both sailing and power vessels. Equestrian spaces include barn with horse stalls, tack room, pasturage, and a separate driveway for horse trailers. Waterfront European-style heated saltwater pool offers an elegant setting for your daily laps or for outdoor entertaining. Here you'll find bluestone pavers, stacked cobblestone columns with a pergola shade element and a pool house with full bathroom, an outdoor shower and separate kitchenette. Screened sunporch features slate flooring, stacked-stone wood-burning fireplace, wooden bead board ceiling with built-in surround sound and gracefully leads to an outdoor flagstone patio with pergola, offering peaceful water views. The home's interior is a true showplace featuring custom millwork and stonework; rough sawn, varied plank oak flooring; multi-layer trim work; solid core doors with transom windows; custom window treatments and interior shutters; multiple fireplaces and window seats. Front entrance features a limestone arched entry and custom stone exterior which opens into a grand foyer with 21-ft ceilings, faux Venetian plaster, and custom curved stairway with brass handrail and forged iron banister. Chef's kitchen features elevated custom cabinetry, soapstone counters with granite island, undercabinet lighting, Thermador 5-burner cooktop with Dacor warming drawer, and Sub-Zero side-by-side refrigerator/freezer. Butler's pantry includes Miele double convection ovens, built-in Sub-Zero drawers with high-humidity compartments and Sub-Zero beverage cooler. Wine connoisseurs will appreciate the lower-level walk-in, temperature-controlled wine cellar with planked wood ceiling. Owner's retreat features French doors with pewter-finished forged iron hardware and a spa like bathroom with separate soaking tub and oversized shower, travertine flooring and soapstone counters. Though built in the 21st century, this estate offers the sophistication and emotional impact of the grand historic homes with mature landscaping that appears to be the result of generations of careful design and tending. Though it feels like a world away, you're only minutes to Historic Annapolis (<4 mi) with an easy commute to DC, Baltimore and three major airports. Come and be swept away!
