Cape St. Claire home has million-dollar views of Magothy River

Outside, inside entertainment opportunities abound

October 08, 2012|By Candy Thomson, The Baltimore Sun

Jutting out from Persimmon Point on the Broadneck Peninsula, the view from 1128 River Bay Road is expansive and expensive.

From the private dock, the Magothy River stretches to the left as far as you can see and to the right to where the river empties into the Chesapeake Bay. Across the way the homes on Gibson Island dot the shoreline.

Built in the 1950s as a shore home for the Pumphreys, one of Cape St. Claire's prominent families, the home was sold to a son, who replaced it five years ago with a contemporary home. It sold in July for $1.3 million.

"It's a feel-good view," said Steven Chapman, an agent with Champion Realty Inc. "But when you're spending that kind of money, it has to meet your needs."

The 3,526-square-foot home has four bedrooms, a large entertainment room and 21/2 baths. Its open-floor plan is accented with Canadian birch floors and windows that draw your eyes to the water views, Chapman said.

The nearly half-acre lot includes a two-car garage and the dock, with water deep enough to accommodate all but the biggest yachts. The Magothy, a tidal river, is a great place to fish for perch, chain pickerel and striped bass.

The community of Cape St. Claire, consisting of about 2,500 homes, is about a 15-minute drive to Annapolis and 45 minutes to Baltimore.
