Past the small stone gate house and along the picturesque causeway, the drive onto Gibson Island feels like a portal to another world as your cares seem to melt away. Private, secluded, and one of the most desirable locations in Maryland, this scenic oasis beats to a slower drum: quiet and wooded with tranquil beaches, a 9-hole golf course, 2 Marinas and incredible vistas of the Chesapeake to one side and the Magothy River to the other.
Sited to perfectly enjoy the surrounding panoramas, 1753 Banbury Road sits on the first hole of the Gibson Island Golf Course. This exquisite, state-of-the-art contemporary luxury home leaves no stone unturned in its unparalleled attention to form, detail, comfort and pleasure. Embracing 280° bay views and abundant natural light flowing throughout the space, a calm soothing air greets visitors to this one-of-a-kind home. The mahogany Foyer melts seamlessly into the Great Room just beyond as striking views of the Chesapeake take your breath away from the moment you cross the threshold. With a wooden, barrel-vaulted ceiling reminiscent of an overturned yacht, this peaceful room features Brazilian teak flooring, limestone walls, a stone chimney wall with fireplace, and a full length window wall with French doors to the deck beyond. Overlooking the Great Room, the open Kitchen is a chef’s dream with custom designer cabinetry, granite counters, top-of-the-line professional appliances, round stainless tile backsplash, matching Wet Bar and attached Kitchenette. A Study sits just off the Kitchen with a passage to the Foyer featuring “ship’s grate” panels adding an additional nautical feel to the setting.
Situated opposite the Great Room chimney wall, the inviting screened porch offers an idyllic space to relax by the fireplace as an enveloping, cool breeze floats in from the water. Just down the hall, two exceptionally fitted out en-suite Bedrooms boast stunning views, custom closets and attached Spa Baths.
An open 3-level staircase invites guests up to the extraordinary Master Bedroom Suite rivaling world class resorts in luxury, fixtures, finishes and attention to detail. The Bedroom features a barrel vaulted, mahogany ceiling with exposed trusses, stone chimney wall with fireplace, and attached Dressing Room. The adjoining Master Spa Bath boasts a carved marble oval soaking tub, dual entry shower stall with rain showers and natural light pouring in through port hole windows. An adjacent VIP Suite sits on the opposite corner of the Second Level with a private Sitting Room, coffee/wine Bar, floor length picture windows and attached Spa Bath. Both Bedrooms access a connecting deck with stunning views looking out to Baltimore Light and beyond.
Down the spiral staircase, the Lower Level enjoys a solar-heated Indoor Pool, expansive Recreation Room with stone chimney wall and fireplace, elevator, home media center and Spa Bath with a stainless steel soaking tub on a bed of river rocks as well as a steam shower. An attached 3-car Garage completes this level.
Curved garden walls, multi-level Decks, and a backyard flowing effortlessly into the Golf Course; there is no shortage of outdoor entertaining spaces or ways to enjoy the amazing surrounding views. The degree of thought and meticulous attention put into every inch of 1753 Banbury Road creates a seamless, state-of-the-art luxury experience, allowing for full enjoyment of this unique, highly desirable locale.
