Past the small stone gate house and along a most picturesque causeway, the drive onto Gibson Island offers a portal into another world. Private, safe and secluded in one of the most sought-after communities in Maryland, this Norman Rockwellian oasis marches to the beats of a slower drum: quiet and wooded with serene beaches, the island is a treasure trove of Mother Nature’s bounty with the scenic Otter Pond and surrounded by the Chesapeake Bay to the east and the Magothy River to the west. Limitless opportunities for relaxation and recreation abound: sail, fish, bike, walk, canoe, skeet shoot, run, swim, and mingle to your heart’s content.
The charming and cheerful 5 Bedroom, 4 Bath cottage at 1809 Ha Penny Way welcomes guests into a bright and cheerful, slate-floored Foyer awash in natural light from three sets of over-sized sliding glass doors. Two sets of French doors open into the Living Room where magnificent heart pine floors flow throughout the home and are accented by a full-height brick fireplace wall with a wood burning fireplace as well as a large picture window.
Two cased portals on either side of the fireplace lead into the adjoining Family Room with a built-in corner cabinet, French doors to the yard as well as a set opening into the exquisite attached Screened Porch. This incredibly inviting space boasts a vaulted and beamed beadboard paneled ceiling, IPE hardwood floors and screened walls allowing delightful breezes to pass through while keeping warm in front of the cozy wood burning fireplace set in a full-height stone chimney wall. Doors lead out onto the stone terrace nearby. A swinging door from the Family Room provides access to the eat-in Kitchen, enjoying stainless appliances, granite counters, an original Dutch pantry cabinet, with a sunny Breakfast Area nestled in the bay window.
Two en-suite Bedrooms can be found on the main level, one with a wrap-around, built-in bookcase. A private hall on the second level opens to the spacious Master Bedroom Suite with ample closets and an updated, attached Bath with a rainforest shower. Two additional Bedrooms and an updated Bath share this level.
A bluestone Patio with beautiful border gardens provides fantastic outdoor dining options with a Jenn-Air stainless steel grill in a built-in stone cook center. A bluestone walkway connects the covered side porch as well as the detached two-car garage with an outdoor shower stall. Handsomely appointed, immaculately maintained and accented by gorgeous mature landscaping, 1809 Ha Penny Way is the quintessential island retreat, sure to delight at every turn!
