Private, architecturally designed home five minutes from historic Annapolis
This property was designed and built in 1978 by Joseph A Wilkes FAIA, a notable DC architect, as his private home. Mr Wilkes is best known for his work on the National Zoo, the Federal Reserve, numerous embassies, commercial and residential projects and for editing The Encyclopedia of Architecture. At the time, this unique property was recognized for its timeless design and its passive solar heating system. It was the subject of the cover story in the Washington Post's Sunday Style Magazine article "Windows On The World". Extraordinary privacy and stunning, expansive year-round views of the Severn River, combined with close proximity to charming, historic Annapolis, led Mr. Wilkes to choose this location. Nestled in a clearing with woods on two sides, this home has a serene, parklike feeling that seamlessly transitions to a sweeping, sun-soaked lawn and beach on the shore of the Severn River. Clean lines and thoughtful design maximize this mid-century modern home’s southern exposure, creating soaring natural light-filled interiors and opportunities to view wetlands, wildlife and river activities. A spacious foyer showcases architectural niches with built-in lighting for displaying artwork. A convenient powder room and coat closet sit to the left while floor-to-ceiling windows grace the southern wall. In the living room, new hardwood floors compliment the vaulted wood ceiling. Angles come together as the ceiling meets the stunning glass walls overlooking the wraparound deck and water views. In front of the glass wall, the custom woodstove sits on a stone and brick hearth designed to be a trombe wall providing passive solar heat to the home. The design of the custom, cantilevered staircase adds to the room’s ambiance while allowing light to filter throughout the open floor plan. The dining room features beautiful glass ceiling lights and glass doors leading to the rear patio. Updated with new stainless-steel Kitchen Aid appliances, granite counters and recessed lighting the kitchen also includes a breakfast nook and plentiful storage. An architectural cutout in the interior wall provides river views while cooking. A few steps up from the main level sit two spacious bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, custom windows and a walk-in closet in the third bedroom. The second bedroom features a newly renovated ensuite bath with granite counters, ceramic tile floor and wall, custom maple cabinets and new frameless glass shower enclosure. A greenhouse window allows in natural light and views of the river. Vaulted ceilings continue on the upper level in the master suite. A cozy window bench creates the perfect place to gaze out at the river. Double closets provide plenty of storage. The master bathroom ceiling features high windows and new lighting. Carefully placed so the occupant may enjoy river views, the bathtub has been upgraded with new glass walls and shower fixtures. The lower level has a newly finished family room with new carpeting and recessed light. An adjacent walk-in closet provides storage while the rear office/studio could be turned into a guest room. The office/studio also has walk-out access to the yard. Extensive storage rooms sit adjacent to the utility room.
