Sales Pace Exceeds Expectations
San Domingo Cove, a premier community of new waterfront homes in historic St. Michaels, Maryland, is nearly sold out, with only a few home sites still available. At the heart of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, recently dubbed by Forbes as “the New Hamptons,” San Domingo Cove offers the extraordinary opportunity to own a waterfront home at inland prices, in a community where every home site has direct water access.
“The housing market in the greater Washington region is very strong. The same holds true in Talbot County on the Eastern Shore where, according to Long & Foster market data, home prices have increased 14 percent since the same time last year and days on market have gone down by 30 percent, which has led to a sales pace that exceeded even our expectations,” said Clint Mann, president of Urban Pace. “The Urban Pace team tapped into our proprietary database to identify and engage likely buyers for these homes. With only a handful of home sites left, this community will sell out very soon,” continued Mann.
The sales team will be holding an end-of-summer event as a last chance to purchase a home in this new community on Sept. 2 from noon to 4 p.m. with an exclusive tour of the estate. There will be tours of the property, food and drinks, and up to $30,000 of incentives for anyone attending the event.
Waterfront homes in San Domingo Cove start in the $800s; one-to-two-acre waterfront home sites are available from the $350s for those who wish to work with their own builder. Each unique home is masterfully designed to capture the charm and coastal flair of Eastern Shore living. Buyers can choose from nine home designs, with three- to 10-bedroom floor plans ranging from 1,700 square feet to nearly 5,000 square feet. Future homeowners have extensive options to select from including an owner’s suite on the first or second level, patios, porches, balconies, pools, outdoor kitchens and fireplaces.
San Domingo Cove is an eco-friendly community, designed with protection of the waterfront and restoration of the wetlands paramount. Community piers are designed with Ecograte decking to support subaquatic vegetation. Mature woodlands have been preserved, with more than 60 percent of the community to intentionally remain undeveloped as a welcoming home for local wildlife.
Homeowners have direct access from San Domingo Cove into downtown St. Michaels to experience an array of fine restaurants, casual cafes, wine bars, boutiques, galleries and year-round entertainment. As one of the mid-Atlantic’s most popular destinations with a rich history that dates back to the late 1600s as a trading post and shipbuilding center, St. Michaels represents the heart and soul of the Chesapeake.
