Habitat Price Points: What over $1,000,000 Buys You in Talbot County


This week’s feature is a property listed for $1,195,000 at 27820 Waverly Rd in Easton.

It’s hard to beat the Oxford corridor as a location. For weekenders from the major metropolitan areas in the Mid-Atlantic, or full time residents, it is minutes from the 322-bypass and close to both Easton and Oxford shopping and community amenities. Unlike newer developments, Waverly is an older neighborhood with large lots, mature trees and landscaping for privacy.

The core of the house is a Dutch Colonial with wings on both sides along the Tred Avon waterfront. One of the wings is a spacious master suite with a sitting room and fireplace. The broad water views and sunsets are breathtaking from all the rear rooms.

I liked how the large living room has a wide picture window to the water view and a working fireplace. My favorite room was the large sunroom facing the water with windows on three sides for panoramic views of the Tred Avon. I could easily imagine relaxing there and watching the sunset.

The master suite on the first floor and three other bedrooms above makes this a great house for family and guests. Unlike some older houses, this floor plan works well without the need for extensive demolition. With cosmetic updates this house could become a true gem in a very desirable neighborhood.
