    Description

    Old world craftsmanship abounds in this 4,070 sqft 1882 Victorian Queen Anne with enhanced Eastlake Style finishes and two staircases. Meticulously renovated, ~Oakley Hill Manor~ offers four bedrooms and two baths situated on a large 0.65 acre lot on the corner of Locust and Oakley Streets with ample off-street parking. It is featured in the book ~Between the Nanticoke and the Choptank: An Architectural History of Dorchester County, MD~ by Mr. Christopher Weeks, (1984, Johns Hopkins University Press). Mr. Weeks states, ~... this is probably one of the earlier houses on Locust Street. It is certainly one of the most impressive.~Located three blocks from the Choptank River, Oakley Hill Manor had great success as a Bed and Breakfast as recent as 2013. The current innkeepers have an exquisite selection of furnishings available via negotiation with the purchase of this Grand Victorian. Additionally, new owners could easily split the large 0.65 property and sell off a building lot.Renovations include triple-zoned gas heat and central air conditioning, plumbing and electric. The 18 X 12 gourmet kitchen with new pergo flooring, recessed lighting, new sheetrock, dishwasher and an island with seating for three. A roomy pantry offers plenty of storage just off the kitchen through new sliding glass doors. The first-floor bathroom features ceramic tiled flooring, new shower, toilet and sink. The second-level bath also offers a ceramic tile floor, his- and-her porcelain sinks, a roomy shower and a tiled jacuzzi tub. The third level at 1,400 sqft, provides an incredibly unique space that could easily be converted into additional bedrooms, artist studio or any number of uses.Oakley Hill Manor exterior features five gables, cheerful colors, corbelled brick chimney stacks, several windows with original stained glass panes, brick patio, a wrap-around porch, a 15 X 15 screened porch and classic perimeter landscape fencing. Productive fruit trees and berry bushes include blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, apple, fig, kiwi, plum, pecan, persimmon and pomegranate, as well as a garden shed. Many more notable features of architectural interest may be found in the description provided by the Maryland Historical Trust, by request.The front entrance, complete with a sea serpent knocker, provides a warm greeting through double doors to the vestibule. The next set of double doors will find you in the foyer, compelled by the rich woodwork of the curved stairway, stained glass and wall niches. Turn right to enter the front parlor that sets the tone for Oakley Hill Manor with rich wooden and intricate 10-foot trey ceiling, an embellished ornate fireplace, captivating crown molding, and exquisite wainscot wood paneling. Many of these same features are found throughout including transoms, builtin-ins, interior wooden shutters, original hardwood floors, and a second story sleeping porch.Finally, Cambridge has attracted several sophisticated developers from Alexandria, D.C., and Baltimore who are investing hundreds of millions of dollars right now. Prices are undervalued but beginning to firm. Voted among the Best in 2019 by the Smithsonian, this once sleepy waterfront town, rich in maritime heritage, has become a hub for tourists, outdoor sports enthusiasts, seafood lovers, artists and more.More information about the area here:https://www.cambridgeyachtbasin.com/https://visitdorchester.org/https://www.choosecambridge.com/The 15 Best Small Towns to Visit in 2019 - Smithsonian https://www.smithsonianmag.com/travel/15-best-small-towns-visit-2019-180972218/
