Magnificently resplendent, captivating, and wholly irreplaceable, Cecilia’s Point is an offering unlike any other. Situated on the Chlora's Point peninsula along Maryland’s glamorous Eastern Shore, the estate boasts 3000 feet of protected shoreline and spans 117 acres. It serves as a serene contrast to urban living, affording an authentic getaway to a place of sculpted grounds and open expanses, permeated only by the gentle sounds of the Choptank River. A long, meandering driveway winds through a verdant canopy of trees, a bubbling pond and white picket fences before skimming alongside the shoreline and concluding. The motor court, with its lighted entry pillars, comprises herringbone brick pavers and presents a regal introduction to the majestic estate. Distinctly coastal yet ornate in detail, slate shingles and striped awnings meet Corinthian columns in an old-world fashion reminiscent of the most exclusive private clubs and finest inns. An upper-level terrace spans the main residence’s entire width, creating an intimate loggia underneath, bathed in the glow of the sun, old-world lanterns and magnificent sunsets. Through arched glass and mahogany double doors, the greeting hall is artfully luxurious with its checkered marble floor, sweeping wrought iron staircase, and intricate millwork. A groin vault ceilinged gallery immediately ahead extends the depth of the home. The paneled game room is a byword for quiet sophistication, warmly lit, and composed of multiple intimate game and seating areas. The kitchen, with its wooden beam ceiling, blends such traditional touches with exacting craftsmanship and more modern conveniences such as a full suite of SubZero, Wolf, and Miele appliances. At the end of the main gallery and centered on the main level is the spectacular great room. Ceiling trusses gracefully merge into the coffered ceiling above the double-height space, an etherealness accentuated by stained glass windows and panoramic water views. The four bedrooms are each up to par with the world’s leading hotel suites and finished with a distinct old-world theme. Chief amongst them is the upper-level primary suite. Uninterrupted views over the rear lawns and water from the private terrace couple with twin dressing rooms, spa bathrooms, and a massage room to constitute a hidden home within a home. A sumptuous media room, home office, fitness center, and private elevator complete the main home. An airy breezeway connects to the self-sufficient guest house. A large SubZero-Wolf kitchen, full laundry facilities, and five additional bedroom suites offer ample accommodation. A carriage house includes two additional bedroom suites. The garages can accommodate 10 vehicles. Yet, the amenities against this stunning natural backdrop are what truly sets Cecilia’s Point apart. Pickleball courts, a heated saltwater pool and hot tub with accompanying cabana, outdoor kitchen, fire pit, miles of trails, a deepwater dock with both boat and jet ski lifts, putting green, and a sandy beach all alongside glorious westerly sunset views of the Choptank River will likely never be replicated. The feel of the cabana is total relaxation with boat bar, two TV's and a full bathroom surrounded by magnificent water views that is spectacular. The estate is located near charming Downtown Easton and all of its entertainment, but feels like an entirely separate world. Unquestionably one of Maryland’s most hidden gems, Cecilia’s Point is an estate to last generations.
