Three nautical miles from downtown Annapolis but seeming worlds away is the private peninsula where Mill and Burley creeks meet the Chesapeake Bay - and where 2077 Maidstone Farm Road, a nine-acre estate with 2,000 feet of waterfront, awaits its new owner.

Touches of period craftsmanship outside and inside were provided by Italian artisans commissioned by the home's owner and builder, James Bowdoin, great-grandson of the founder of Bowdoin College in Maine.
