Custom $3 Million Coastal Retreat In Maryland Is Skipper-Ready

Boating enthusiasts looking for a snug harbor between Baltimore and Annapolis, Maryland, need look no farther than Little Round Bay, a deep-water cove on the Severn River.

This custom coastal retreat, designed by local architect Cathy Purple Cherry, encompasses 2.72 acres in Crownsville’s Herald Harbor area.

Included in the 2.72-acre offering in Crownsville, Maryland, is a 170-foot pier with three slips and an electric lift. (LONG & FOSTER REAL ESTATE)

A long wooden walkway leads through the treed grounds to a 170-foot pier with three boat slips and an electric lift. The average water height at low tide is 10 feet.

An elevator accesses all three levels of the gray and white-trim home, which has a New England coastal vibe. Augmenting the nearly 5,100 square feet of interior living space are multiple water-view decks, balconies and a screened-in porch.
