Eastern Shore Country Manor

on island creek

LOCATED ON A TRIBUTARY of the Chesapeake Bay, this Oxford, Maryland residence appears outwardly grand, but the home is just one room deep. Gently curving along the shoreline, the waterfront elevation features large windows and French doors that provide abundant natural light and striking waterfront views for every room.

Designed as a classic Maryland coastal country home, the structure appears to have gradually expanded with new additions over time. This narrative is accomplished with different roof forms and materials, successfully presenting the home as if the center block existed as the original structure on the property. The informal drive and parking court is encircled by the wings of the house. 

The interior, while quite large, is rendered intimate through use of special details and delightful millwork. The open kitchen layout and double islands beckon guests to gather around. Soft blues and greens throughout reinforce the relaxed coastal sensibility indoors while the living spaces of the porch and great room extend towards the pool and terrace to create a significant indoor/outdoor entertainment space.
