A 6.2-acre waterfront estate on Bayfields point with 1000+ feet of deep protected water. Shoreline looking both southeast of West River and south across TentHouse creek, to the historic Galesville (est.1653). Imagine yourself at the start of your day sipping coffee on your private balcony, overlooking the stocked pond and the beach. As crabbers go by with their hardy catch, you walk out onto the dock and sail onboard your luxurious yacht, and within a few minutes, you can enjoy a view of the Thomas Point Lighthouse and the Chesapeake Bay. Now it's time to entertain guests at the custom saltwater pool and cabana equipped with an island, a bar tap, a grill, and a stone fireplace. Be marveled at the numerous backdrops to choose from. The woods, creek, river, pond, and gardens. Relax at the lounge area and listen to the waterfall as you watch the birds fly over. Now it's the end of the day, you can cozy up near the double-sided fireplace, or enjoy the tranquil water view while reading a book as the sun lights up the sky. You feel refreshed, energized, calm, and contented all at the same time. Welcome to TentHouse. Designed by notable architect Cathy Purple Cherry, and built in 2006 by John Nugent of Nugent Design & Build. Off the master suite are two covered porches are a great place to see the sunrise through the trees, sailing school across the creek, the tug boats coming and going with their barges, and the dying light of sunset across the creek of the historic Tulip Hill. In these deep protected waters, TentHouse has two deepwater slips that can accommodate vessels of up to 50 ft, a floating dock for smaller boats, and a power lift for a third boat. A one-acre waterfront yard leading down to a sand beach between stone jetties perfect for bonfires and small boat launch. As you enter the main door be amazed at the soaring 30 ft welcome view to the top floor, handpicked wide plank distressed oak floors from Maine all throughout the house, stone fireplaces, large windows that give a vibe of the warmth of this waterside home. TentHouse really is a boater's dream house and an owner's retreat. The main house has 6 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, 2 laundry areas, and The kitchen gives warmth and heart to this lovely home. The fireplace is built from the stone salvaged from the home it replaced. It is the perfect hub for a night of great food and entertainment. The office has the feel of a treehouse that looks over the dock. It is the best "corner office with a view" that anyone could ever desire. The In-Law suite has a 900 sqft three-room suite with a separate zone for heating/cooling, heated floor full bath, a full kitchen (attached to the main house), handicapped accessible, warm and spacious, yet private with its own entrance both from the porch and its own private back porch. The third floor has always been the bonus suite to jam with guitars, play video games, or foosball. The 1200 sqft guest suite over the garage is the perfect space for guests that want privacy with a spectacular view. Completely self-contained for guests who stay a night or a month. It has 2 king bedrooms, 1 full bath, a kitchen, and a laundry room. The pool house is a 1700 sqft custom designed saltwater pool with cascading views of pond and creek, large solar shelf with permanent umbrellas, stone formation with waterfalls that give a woodland pond experience, the 625 sqft pavilion with post and beam construction, stone wall facing north with large fireplace and hearth, kitchen with three under-counter refrigerators, ice maker, beer refrigerator, dishwasher, outdoor shower, two changing rooms, and a half bath.
