Habitat Price Points: What $401,000 to $700,000 Buys You in Talbot County


This week’s feature is a property listed for $685,000 at 21496 Island Club Rd in the Tilghman-on-Chesapeake neighborhood. This development on Tilghman Island offers a clubhouse, large pool and marina with floating dock to enjoy relaxing with family and friends

This house has great curb appeal with its site that is slightly elevated above the street, the garage wing is perpendicular to the street and the house’s massing steps down from its central two-story wing to the side one story wing. The rear yard backs up to a wooded area for privacy. Part of the rear yard is fenced so children and pets can play outdoors with minimal supervision. The owners added extensive landscaping including a small gazebo which their grandchildren have claimed as their own clubhouse.

The owners worked with the builder to add many custom touches, especially in the kitchen as they love to cook for friends and family. My favorite rooms were the four seasons room with its large floor to ceiling windows and pitched ceiling and the dining area with its large corner windows. The kitchen is the hub of this house and it is open to the dining and family room. The master suite  on the main floor and the other 4 bedrooms on the second floor are all spacious.
