Boating enthusiasts looking for a snug harbor between Baltimore and Annapolis, Maryland, need look no farther than Little Round Bay, a deep-water cove on the Severn River.
A long wooden walkway leads through the treed grounds to a 170-foot pier with three boat slips and an electric lift. The average water height at low tide is 10 feet.
An elevator accesses all three levels of the gray and white-trim home, which has a New England coastal vibe. Augmenting the nearly 5,100 square feet of interior living space are multiple water-view decks, balconies and a screened-in porch.
The open-plan layout centers on an airy great room with a fireplace, 11-foot ceilings and abundant windows. The space flows into the dining area, which has a wet bar, two beverage refrigerators and an ice machine.
The kitchen features KitchenAid stainless-steel appliances, a granite center island and granite countertops. A family room with a fireplace flanked by window seats is off the kitchen.
The primary suite includes a large private balcony with water views, a spa-like bathroom and a walk-in closet. There’s also an au pair suite with a deck, water views, a full bathroom and a sitting room for a total of five bedrooms and five bathrooms.
The game/media room has a kitchenette with counter seating for snacking and entertaining.
In addition to the dock, outdoor amenities include a fire pit set on a paver patio, a water’s edge seating area and a sandy beach.
Family friendly Crownsville is a suburb of Baltimore with easy access to metropolitan areas. It hosts the county fair each September and a renaissance festival in the summer.
Other community amenities include a public golf course, restaurants and parks such as the Generals Highway Corridor, which offers a nature trail and playing fields.
The 630-acre Bacon Ridge Natural Area, a protected space with forests and marshes, is a popular hiking spot.
