Long & Foster Real Estate’s Sharon Owens, Joan Gallagher, Donna Karpa and Adrienne Deming have listed a stunning home on a magnificent 0.7 acre lot overlooking the Chesapeake Bay. Located at 525 Broadwater Way, in Gibson Island, Md., the home includes access to a marina, the Gibson Island Club, a pool, tennis courts and a nine-hole golf course. Surrounding the Cape-style estate are beautiful hardscapes and exotic Burmese rock gardens with a pond and waterfall. The home includes five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms and is being offered for $3,999,999.

“This treasure on Gibson Island is a truly rare find. It’s the perfect home for someone who loves the water, tennis and boating, it’s close to the Gibson Island Club, and it faces the C.B. Macdonald Golf Course,” said Owens. “This location is especially unique for the region because a forestry program protects over half the land on the island.”

A brick paver driveway leads up to the home, while a bright, sunny foyer open to the rear offers immediate water views. The large, two-story living room is overlooked by a mezzanine that leads to the upstairs rooms. Just beyond the living room is a lovely four-season sunroom that opens onto an inviting patio, both with Chesapeake Bay views. Steps from the patio lead down to the waterfront.

A sunny family room provides space for relaxation and is adjacent to the kitchen, which includes a large center island, multiple ovens and a custom refrigerator. Beautiful cherry cabinets provide ample storage. A butler’s pantry just off the kitchen houses an oversized sink, as well as another dishwasher. A bedroom, full bath and home office are also on the first floor.
