The best properties along the Chesapeake Bay were built on first, and this stone house sits on one of the most picturesque. Located hign on a terraced south facing point of land overlooking the Magothy River this home was originally built by the Superintendant of the Baltimore prison system. We gutted and rebuilt the interiors of this home, retaining the two foot thick exterior walls and two stone fireplaces. Since the new home owners did not need as large a house as the volumn contained, we took off the roof at the southwest corner and converted the space into a terrace partially enclosed with the residue of a stone wall and now outdoor fireplace. The property had been riddled with a few stone rental cottages, one of which was traded to Anne Arundel County for the permission to build a swimming pool on the footprint within the 100 foot waterfront setback. One side of the pool nestles up against and reflects the gabled relic of a stone wall, the other end has an infinity edge against the horizon, with a waterfall overflowing a matchning stone wall.
