Address: 553 Broadwater Rd., Arnold
List price: $3.69 million
Year built: 2023
Real estate agent: Kelly DePaolo of Coldwater Banker Realty
Last sold price/date: Lot and previous construction for $1,050,000 on Aug. 1, 2022.
Property size: 5,330 square foot home has six bedrooms, four full bathrooms and one half bathroom, an attached two-car garage, an outdoor swimming pool, plus 80 feet of water frontage with a private pier and boathouse.
Unique features: Brand new house was built on the site of a previous residence to take advantage of the views of the Magothy River.
The new owners will be able to enjoy coffee while crabbing or fishing on their 300-foot private pier or cocktails after an evening dip in their outdoor pool. The Chesapeake Bay is just minutes away by boat, while a boathouse at the end of the pier provides some protection from the elements.
The house features an uncovered upper-level deck that is ideal for entertaining, while the family can gather in cooler months in the covered porch.
The interior of the home is designed to maximize light, from the bleached floors to the white carpets. The walls are white, kitchen appliances are stainless steel, and many windows extend from nearly the floor to the ceiling. As a result, occasional dark design features — such as the kitchen cabinets, window frames and the metal railings on the open staircase — appear to float.
The vanities in the main bathroom are set into a wall resembling natural stone tile, while windows are cut high into the walls of the walk-in showers to maintain privacy while letting in light. The soaking tub has a view of the Magothy River.
There’s ample space for an in-law suite or guest housing on the main level, and a bonus room on the third floor that could easily be converted into a home theater or game room.
The home also has such modern amenities as an in-house elevator plus sound and sprinkler systems.
