Are you looking for a true getaway? A luxurious home on a private island off the coast of Annapolis was placed on the market this month for $4.95 million.
The island, called St. Helenas, is located about five miles from Crownsville, just north of Annapolis on the Severn River. The island includes two homes, one of which is for sale.
The 6,131-square-foot, Federal-style home is situated on 7 acres and includes 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. It was built in 1929 and began an 11-year renovation in 2011, according to the listing on Zillow.com.
The home comes equipped with a guest cottage, and a water tower placed 100 feet above sea level, affording a 360-degree view of the river.
The home was recently featured as the House of the Day on the Wall Street Journal, so if you are interested, prepare for some national competition.
