A restored historic farmhouse graces the top of Skywater Road on Gibson Island. Built in 1810, Islecrest is the oldest standing home on Gibson Island. Located on more than an acre, with four levels, this special six bedroom, five full and two half bath home is a wonderful gathering place for family and guests. Enter the front door to a bright and airy hallway with a soft painted checkerboard pattern on the floor. An inviting eat-in kitchen opens to a simply magnificent outdoor porch perfect for entertaining, connecting the main house and the guest house. A powder room is conveniently located on the main level in the kitchen. A large dining room with gas fireplace and beautiful crown molding is to the right of the front door, and a glorious sunporch overlooks the backyard with pool and garden with magnificent plantings. French doors open to a stunning living room with a large woodburning fireplace flanked with wide plank heart of pine floors. A comfortable den opens to the dining room, offering serene views, exposed stone walls, a flagstone floor, and built -in bookcases. Ascend a gracious staircase upstairs to a landing where to the left is a laundry room hidden behind closeted doors, and an en suite bedroom. The landing leads to an en suite bedroom and an office on the left, and to the right is the primary suite with full bath and sitting room. On the third level is a bedroom, full bath, and bonus room. The lower level has a family room, half bath, and sunporch opening to the heated swimming pool with bluestone surround. A gardener’s delight, flowering trees, shrubs and perennials surround the property. There is a dahlia cutting bed and three vegetable gardens. A tree house beckons the young at heart. The guest house above the three-bay garage has a sitting room, two bedrooms and a full bathroom. Information on Gibson Island: Gibson Island is a private island within one hour of Washington, D.C. and Baltimore offering an absolutely extraordinary setting. The Island comprises 1000 acres with seven miles of shoreline. Two thirds of the Island is undeveloped and is owned by the Gibson Island Corporation, the homeowners' association. The remaining third is residential home sites. Gibson Island is located on the western shore of Maryland, so there is no need to cross the Bay Bridge. On the Island is a 43-acre spring fed freshwater lake in which one may enjoy non-motorized watercraft activities such as paddleboarding, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and swimming. The Island offers enormous privacy and security--there is an entry gatehouse staffed 24+Hours and the Island is patrolled by the Gibson Island Police Force (GIPD). The Gibson Island Corporation Service Department offers yard maintenance and landscaping and other services for homeowners. There is a full-service yacht yard. From the Island, it is just a 20-minute drive to BWI Airport and the neighboring Amtrak train station. The Island houses a private country club (membership by invitation) offering yachting, fine dining year-round, tennis, an award-winning Charles Blair Macdonald designed 9-hole golf course, swimming, croquet, skeet shooting, and more.
