An updated, inviting, 1950 waterfront mid-century modern home sits on an extremely private, prime two- acre lot on Otter Pond, a spring fed natural 43-acre lake ideal for non-motorized water activities. With spectacular views of the lake from virtually every room, this four-bedroom, four full bath house awaits its new owners. With a brand-new pier and fabulous decking surrounding the back sides of the house, enjoy swimming, paddleboarding, fishing, kayaking, and canoeing from your backyard. With updated electrical, plumbing, along with the renovation of most rooms and baths, 1627 St. Giles sits up high on a gorgeous private wooded property catching the prevailing winds that sweep up the Chesapeake Bay and Otter Pond. Large windows bring in sunlight and stunning views of the lake and beyond. A split-level home, the main level offers a great room with wood burning fireplace, dining room, kitchen that opens to the great room, bedroom and full bath, and laundry/utility room. On the second level is the primary bedroom suite with large master bath, dressing room, fabulous deck overlooking the water, and two additional bedrooms and full baths. Designed for his own family by Bryden Bordley Hyde, an American Institute of Architects (AIA) fellow, and president of Edmunds and Hyde, a well- regarded Baltimore architectural firm, it is a special property indeed.

Information on Gibson Island:

Two thirds of the Island is undeveloped and is owned by the Gibson Island Corporation, the homeowners' association. The remaining third is residential home sites.
Gibson Island is located on the western shore of Maryland, so there is no need to cross the Bay Bridge. On the Island is a 43-acre spring fed freshwater lake in which one may enjoy non-motorized watercraft activities such as paddleboarding, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and swimming.
The Island offers enormous privacy and security--there is an entry gatehouse staffed 24+Hours and the Island is patrolled by the Gibson Island Police Force (GIPD).
