908 Creek DriveAnnapolis, Maryland MD21403-2310
Seamlessly blending into the waterfront of Eastport in the maritime district of Annapolis, Maryland sits this multi-award winning modern masterpiece. Brought to life by Grid Architects, 908 Creek Drive evokes a one with nature vibration so many have attempted yet few have accomplished. Deliberately designed to showcase the two greatest loves of the owners, sailing and art, the home is an elegant backdrop for each. The living space, shielded from the bustle of the street, gently nudges you to the rear decks and the water below. The award winning design is sleek and minimal, yet cozy and welcoming all at once. The use of natural woods throughout adds a warmth to the crisp, white walls and entire facades of glass. The floating stair beckons to the second level sleeping quarters and an office that spills out to the vegetated roof. Every element of the home was carefully considered and constructed of the finest materials while deliberate in its sustainability. The ease of life in this space is obvious as it stirs the soul to breathe in the salt air and contemplate a waterside lounge by the fire or a sail up the Bay. Take advantage of views of Spa Creek for most of the year when foliage is not full while still maintaining a sense of privacy that is often hard to come by in city dwelling. The proximity to all Annapolis has to offer by foot or boat makes this location ideal. Garage parking for two cars with additional space in the driveway is almost unheard of in Downtown Annapolis! The fully retracting glass walls bring the outdoors in and more than double the entertaining space when all the way open on a gorgeous day or night. This home oozes entertaining ambiance. Think, "chic movie set" entertaining...And for the practical side of life, there is an excessive amount of storage. The seamless design is meant to create a feeling free from clutter, yet you will not be lacking in places to neatly tuck items away with the well planned, custom, modular storage in the pantry and primary suite, the vertical storage in the garage and the massive climate controlled crawl space in the lower level. This lower level would easily become extended finished space for a guest suite, wine cellar, theatre room or more. A full laundry room on the bedroom level is rare and oh so convenient. Usually a move into town comes with compromise; no lawn, no privacy and no parking. Make no compromises; this home has all three! In addition to the incredible design, architectural awards were also given for the use of the land in maximizing the living space within the lot. A truly luxurious modern masterpiece to be envied by many and experienced by few.
