List Price: $4,650,000

This waterfront retreat known as Fox Harbor Farm sits nestled between Oxford and Saint Michaels on more than 165 acres of Maryland's Eastern Shore in Talbot County. It is a jewel in Royal Oak, one of the county's most desirable and affluent towns.

Just behind the front entrance is a tree-lined driveway leading the way to the main house at Fox Harbor. The house resembles a modernized tidewater, colonial style waterfront residence.

The pristine estate includes a guest house, pool house, in-ground pool, hot tub, tennis court, barn, paddocks, as well as a garage with a second level caretakers dwelling. The custom stone and brick walkways have been architecturally designed and planted using natural indigenous materials to enhance the pristine grounds of Fox Harbor. The property has over 500 feet of water frontage on Fox Hole Creek and a private pier with boat and jet ski lifts.

MAIN LIVING AREA: The home features over 7,000 sq. ft. of living space containing four bedrooms, two full and two half baths. A first-floor master bedroom with high tray ceilings, gives way to a bank of windows, and is set off by a walk-out patio. An office, updated country kitchen, breakfast room and family room each offers access to the back patio which extends the entire length of the home. Lower-level walkways leading off the patio will direct you to the pier at waters edge. The in-ground pool with hot tub and 4-car garage is connected to the home by a brick paved breezeway.

A careful eye will note that a working fireplace adorns each room, and that each space features double wood crown moldings and decorative trimmings. This backdrop richly complements the wide-planked, antique heart pine flooring and framing throughout all three levels.

A second story deck offers a panoramic view of the unspoiled grounds and waterways encompassing Fox Harbor Farm.

GUEST HOUSE: Apart from the main dwelling, a guest house offers two bedrooms, a full bath, family room, kitchen, and covered porch.

In 2005, the current owners planned on improving Fox Harbor Farm with a custom-built barn to include an indoor riding arena. Due to the unforeseen future which has landed us the opportunity to sell the estate, that plan will not survive the sale of the farm. To date the barn structure currently measures 45,000 SF under roof. The barn was constructed of the finest materials including tongue and groove craftsmanship and laminated pine. It awaits your personal touches to finish the project.
