Description

Welcome to "Wheatlands", one of Talbot Countys most significant and spectacular estates overlooking the Miles River. Sited on 40+ acres (including a separate16-acre parcel, currently farmed), this iconic property is pristine in every way, and offers unparalleled privacy and beauty. After passing through the entrance pillars, one is mesmerized by the long tree-lined drive, an extraordinary English garden, incredible mature trees and landscaping, and breathtaking views from every vantage point. A sweeping circular drive leads to the 5BR/5.5BA main house while a separate lane accesses the 2BR/2.5BA guesthouse, stunning barn with owners office and lounge, separate recreation house, and charming chicken coop. The large boathouse with its upper sun deck is perhaps the most coveted in Talbot County and has 2 boatlifts (one covered), 7MLW, a floating dock, and shower. In addition, there is a delightful bath house with wine cellar below, a waterside heated saltwater pool, shuffleboard court, and potting shed.The iconic Federal-style manor house has been exquisitely renovated by the current owners who have seamlessly combined the comfort of everyday living with the timeless elegance of the past. Built circa 1750 by General Perry Benson, a Captain in the Revolutionary War and Major General in the War of 1812, all rooms have stunning river vistas and extraordinary details such as high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, elaborate moldings, original oak and refurbished pine flooring, bespoke finishes, and masterful craftsmanship. A welcoming grand foyer, elegant living room with fireplace, dining room with fireplace and paneled murals, and a fabulous family room with its massive fireplace and beamed ceilings, provide great entertaining spaces and comfortable family retreats. Beautiful brick patios and terraces extend the length of the rear of the home offering riveting water views. Modern luxuries are found throughout the home and include a fabulous chefs kitchen with an enormous hand-crafted mahogany center island, honed marble countertops, and top-of-the line appliances. The first-floor primary suite offers a private library/sitting room, fireplace, French doors opening to a patio with hot tub, 3 walk-in closets, and an automatic drop-down stair to a private yoga area. The luxurious bath features a marble tiled steam shower, hewn copper soaking tub, double vanities, and refurbished yellow heart pine floors with radiant heat.The grand staircase leads to the second floor which showcases three large bedrooms (two with ensuite baths and water views), and a charming fifth bedroom and a hobby room are found on the third floor.The lower level includes a media room, laundry room, exercise area and spa, complete with steam shower and sauna. All systems have been updated including electrical and plumbing, geothermal HVAC, encapsulated crawlspace under the rear patio, and conditioned side crawlspaces.Located 1.5 hours from D.C. and Baltimore, 2 hours from Philadelphia, and 3.5 from New York, Wheatlands presents a rare opportunity for the most discerning buyer. Minutes to Easton (noted for its fine dining, shopping, theatre, art galleries, jet-airport, and year round enjoyment) by car and St Michaels by boat, this beautiful property has it all!Additional photos and video of the property are also available upon request.Exclusions and a right-of-way do apply.
