Description

The most iconic home in Bay Ridge has not been offered for sale in more than 40 years! 31 Bay Drive is a Mediterranean style home with absolutely incredible Chesapeake Bay views and an indoor, fully-tiled pool. This 5-bedroom, 5 bathroom home is situated on a pristine lot, totaling almost half an acre, with lush mature landscaping. The water privileged community of Bay Ridge, once known as The Queen Resort of the Chesapeake, offers many amenities. The Bay Ridge marina located on protected Lake Ogleton has deep water slips, and an adjoining playground. 31 Bay Drive owners are charter members of the community pool; the membership transfers with the home. There is also access to common areas including the beaches and park and there~s even a summer camp! As a highly sought-after community in Annapolis with so much to offer, including a convenient location, the community of Bay Ridge makes this magnificent home that much more special. As you step into the 1924 home you are immediately greeted by the stunning character and charm that is carried throughout. The living room has an exposed wood-beamed ceiling, a brick-surround wood-burning fireplace, and a wall of windows to take in the exceptional water views. There are three solid mahogany pocket doors that are said to have come from the old Hay Adams home in Washington DC. The staircase is also original to the home and highlights the craftsmanship of an earlier era. Through the living room to the left is a stunning library with custom wood paneling, built-in bookshelves, and a wood-burning fireplace. Step out of the library to the water view patio: it is the perfect spot to have total privacy while enjoying the panoramic views. To the right of the living room is the formal dining room with the same exposed wood-beams and a gorgeous gas fireplace. This room is also situated strategically on the land to get optimal views of the Bay. Through the dining room is the gorgeously updated kitchen with marble countertops, center island, beautiful cabinetry, and updated appliances. The kitchen opens to a large family room with a sitting area, full bar, and access to the attached two-car garage. Upstairs, the luxurious master bedroom suite enjoys sweeping Bay views and has a private en-suite bath with a large soaking tub, separate shower, stackable laundry, a coffee bar, and access to a private balcony overlooking the Bay. This space truly offers a peaceful retreat from the day. There are two additional bedrooms on this level that share a hall bathroom. Up just a few stairs, a portion of the attic has been finished and makes for a perfect reading nook with huge water views; there~s an adjoining full bathroom. The separate in-law apartment suite on the second floor has a second kitchen, a living room, a sunroom, and two bedrooms that share a full bathroom. The apartment has its own outdoor space, which overlooks the Bay. It is all here -- the elegance of a bygone era that has been updated to include geo-thermal heat and new 150 year roof. Ten years ago, the owners built the library, pool, and garage additions to make this a truly spectacular oasis.
