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


This week’s feature is a property listed for $569,000 at 9428 Martingham Circle in St. Michaels.

I have been a visitor to this house many times since I was the buyers’ agent for a couple who rented it for several years. I liked the curved driveway that leads to the house nestled in its wooded setting. The white exterior color palette, several gables, bay window, dormers and the front porch enlivened the front elevation of this house for great curb appeal.

The great room was the focal point of the house with its end wall fireplace flanked by tall windows with large transoms above and a pitched ceiling. An interesting detail was the wide overlook above in one wall that was open to the hall on the second floor.

My friends liked the kitchen with a large area for informal dining since they both were cooks and loved to entertain. The large screened porch off the kitchen area was the gathering spot for their parties.

The house was zoned well for family living. The master suite was on the main floor and there was another family room on the second floor which became the domain of my friends’ children. Many happy memories of visits and celebrations- a great family house in a very desirable neighborhood!
