Spy Habitat Price Points: What $400,000-$700,000 Buys You in Talbot County


This week’s Habitat Price Point home is a property listed for $660,000 at 210 Factory St. in Oxford.

During my tenure at Urban Design Associates in Pittsburgh, one of the design teams held a design charrette in Caroline County. For inspiration, we visited Oxford and were especially charmed by the open vistas down many of the streets to the water. Several Oxford houses inspired the charrette Pattern Book for  houses, like this appealing Cape Cod.

The stair position at the side instead of the middle of the floor plan maximizes the interior spaces and fills them with light. Having a bedroom suite on the main floor gives flexibility to age in place. Details like the heart pine floors and wood burning fireplace in the great room give this cottage great appeal.
