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


This week’s feature is a property listed for $469, 500 at 28867 Jasper Lane in Easton.

The Galloways Townhomes in the Cooke’s Hope neighborhood is conveniently located between Easton and Oxford. Although I am not fond of front loading garages, adding the two car garage to the ground floor gave this unit extra width and created space behind it for a spacious master suite with views to the garden.

This desirable end unit’s front elevation has great curb appeal with its craftsman decorative elements. I liked how the garage doors were painted a darker shade than the walls instead of the trim color to blend in and unify the elevation. The rear elevation has two projections that gives the terrace privacy for relaxing and enjoying the broad views to the meadow beyond.

I like houses to have a sense of entry and this townhome has an entrance hall with a dormer window so daylight can penetrate into the space. The hall opens up to a large living space with defined sitting, dining and kitchen areas. Daylight from the rear windows and another dormer in the vaulted ceiling give the space architectural character. Two other bedrooms, each with its own bath, a bonus room and large storage are on the second floor.
