Step back in time when you were just starting out in life.  The dreams of a boat a luxury car and of course a beautiful home on the water.


 You have arrived and the only thing missing is that beautiful waterfront home. Let me introduce you to 14206 Roberts Drive perched on 2 acres along the banks of the most desirable River on the Eastern Shore......the Sassafras.

The owners who built this four bedroom home intended to live here forever. 

As you approach this custom home along the winding drive you know this place is special. The Pennsylvania blue stone walk leads you to the one-of-a-kind Burmese Teak door. 

Opening the door reveals the custom hickory staircase and the soaring ceiling in the Living Room accented with recovered "Sinker" Cyprus planking and of course wide views of Sassafras Cove. The Dry- Laid floor to ceiling stone fireplace is the centerpiece of this spacious room. The floor is wide plank random width ¾" hickory which is carried through the remainder of the home with the exception of the playroom and bonus room.

Anyone like to cook? The kitchen has everything you could ever want. A 4' X 12' Rock Maple butcher block island, Wolf double oven, griddle and French top, Subzero Refrigerator/freezer, Wolf warming drawer, built in microwave, Subzero wine refrigerator, large pantry, and a Bosch dishwasher. 

Off the kitchen is a large mud and laundry room.

The dining area shares the Living Room stone fireplace and has access to the large screened porch with views of the river beyond

The first floor Master Suite looking out over the river has accesses to a deck on the waterside. The Master Bath with  heated tumbled "Crema Marfil" marble floor, dual shower heads from Holly's of Bath England and a large jetted soaking tub will satisfy anyone's needs.

An office for two with a custom cherry desk and built-ins completes the 1st floor.

The upper level provides guest accommodations that include two bedrooms and a large full bath with a tumbled porcelain heated floor. There is also a large room used as a playroom for the children with a full bath and a large bonus room. This wing could be a large suite for an au pair or an in-law.

The outdoor amenities rival that of the interior. Large stone boulders surround the fire pit area flanked by dry stacked stone walls.  The screened porch, deck and stairs to the waterfront are constructed with IPE Brazilian hardwood and the stairs have Greenheart framing. These woods choices practically eliminate the need for regular maintenance. Entertain at water's edge in the Purpleheart constructed gazebo complete with a stainless outdoor refrigerator.  Your deep water dock is constructed to commercial standards with a 30' floating t-head and includes three slips, which can accommodate a 45' and 25' boat with a 10,000 lb lift on the fixed finger pier.

It is evident when you visit this home that the owners devoted love and countless hours searching the globe for the materials, which make this home peerless.
