Only minutes from the famous historic “Chestertown”, this magnificent 1000 acre estate is both a wildlife sanctuary and arboretum, with hundreds of mature specimen trees and acres of woods and farm fields. The contemporary style home is just a fabulous family retreat offering traditional, yet sophisticated and extremely comfortable accommodations.
Sited perfectly high above the river, this spectacular home offers wonderful views of the sun setting over the water and quiet evenings to listen and watch the eagles and osprey, while living in a very luxurious environment. This home is ideal for a family vacation away from it all.
The entrance to the farm is quite breath taking – a very long, tree lined driveway winds past a large duck pond and then there it is – you drive through large iron gates into a bricked courtyard which is planted with flowers and herbs. The huge wooden front door is made of Cherry and the first thing you notice is the wonderful light streaming through the windows. The entrance foyer is phenomenal with the tasteful artwork and wood carvings. “Chez Bonheur” has the view we all dream of – look out through the large sliding doors leading from the dining room/living room area out to the wide water views.
You are now safely tucked away from the crowds and let’s get you settled in. One walks into the dining room which is open to the living room. There is a large deck off the living room facing the water. Views, views, and more water views ! Just to off your left you will find a bright and airy, open plan kitchen and casual dining area with a sitting area around a fireplace which leads out to the screened porch. What a treat to cook and entertain in this grand area overlooking the water. There is a master bedroom with queen bed with en suite bathroom on the first floor too!
Upstairs you will find another master bedroom with en suite bathroom, a guest bedroom with a queen bed with en suite bathroom, a small bedroom (with the castle painting) with a twin bed, another bedroom with a set of bunk beds and en suite bathroom and then ….. the incredible small peoples play room with all sorts of fun toys. You are welcome to use the personal assistant's apartment suite, which has an open plan living/bedroom with Queen bed and its own bathroom.
Now you can sit back, get the BBQ going, have a cocktail, swim in the pool and watch the sun set while the family catch crabs off the dock or catch a fish for dinner! This is bald eagle country so don’t leave those binoculars at home! Bring your boat or kayak – great boat house and dock too!
The 1000 acre estate is just 5 miles outside Chestertown which is well known for it’ fine dining restaurants, lots of casual restaurants too, great eclectic little shops, lots of antique stores and a golf course. You can also do day trips to Annapolis, Rock Haul, Centreville and St Michaels. So come on down and enjoy “Chez Bonheur”!
