Enjoy stunning western-facing views across the river and a natural tidal pond from this sprawling historic home that sits on 1.5+ acres. The light-filled farmhouse is located on Persimmon Point, which is positioned between Harness Creek and the South River. It is a peninsula rich in local lore that includes native american oysters mounds, pirate hideouts, tobacco farming and world champion cows.
Once the home was part of the original Wimbledon Farm. From the 1930’s, Wimbledon Farm grew abundant produce and tobacco. The last magnificent tobacco barn in Annapolis is on the property next to the house. Wimbledon was also famous for their dairy. Their dairy cows and bulls attracted breeders from around the world and famously started the “Carnation” milk herd. The dairy barn was immense and the milk came into the small milk house, which is now the charming "Milkhouse Suite". Here the milk was chilled and sent out to be bottled and delivered.
The home was renovated to its current beauty by opening the entire back of the house to the water with windows and connecting the main house to the "milk house". The house offers a special, very private family retreat just minutes to downtown Annapolis. All of the living space, and 4 of the 5 bedrooms, are on the main floor. The lofted upstairs bedroom is perfect for the younger crowd and has 3 twin beds and room to enjoy each other's company. The open floor plan, deck and terrace provide multiple living spaces inside and out. There are 2 full baths and room for 12 guests to sleep comfortably. There is a large stone patio with fountain and dining tables, a pair of Adirondack chairs on the back deck under the shady wisteria pergola, and a BBQ grill. Inside, the dining table seats 8 and there’s room for 3 at the breakfast bar. Across the lush lawn, there is also a small pier on the pond for kayak launching or fishing fun for small anglers. Guests can also get away from the day by lounging on the creek side on the front porch swing.
Local activities include, Great Frogs Winery (less than ½ mile away down the street), Quiet Waters Park (across the creek with hiking trails, ice skating and SUP rentals) and kayaking or biking. The home is a wonderful place to relax for families and friends coming in for Naval Academy events, boat shows, wine tasting or just a beautiful getaway.
