Spy Habitat Price Points: What $701,000 to $1,000,000 Buys You in Talbot County


This week’s feature is a property listed for $865,000 at 105 Cherry Street in St. Michaels.

When I moved to the Eastern Shore, my first apartment was above one of the retail shops. I enjoyed my daily walks through the historic district with my beloved Sheltie as I admired the range of architectural styles of the houses. This house’s traditional color palette of white siding, red metal roof and black shutters was very appealing.

I liked the house’s commanding presence on its large corner lot and how its massing is scaled down by the hipped roofs of the house and front porch. The house has been renovated with care to preserve the historic character of the interior spaces with its many fireplaces, and details like the clawfoot tub and the Victorian style front and rear porches.
