Spy Habitat Price Points: What $100,000 to $400,000 Buys You in Chestertown

This week’s feature is a property listed for $170,000 at 807 High Street, Chestertown.

I have always sought out fixer-uppers for my own home since most cosmetic choices like hardwood flooring, etc. can be done quickly and make a dramatic difference. I can easily imagine replacing the jalousie windows on this house with full screening to make the space more of an outdoor room.

This 3 bedroom, 2 bath fixer upper has great potential. The living room has a fireplace and there is a separate dining room as well as a kitchen-dining combo.

If you are an outdoor sports enthusiast, the private pier and beach off Jarrett Creek, pool and tennis court of Kent Fields Farm’s 65 acres ( 16.76 wooded) await you.  You could also just relax in an Adirondack chair and daydream gazing at the water.  

Like many houses in Talbot County, a long entry drive flanked by trees leads to the house which has five bedrooms and 5 baths.

This week’s feature is a property listed for $995,000 at 6858 Pentridge Lane in Chestertown.

Subdivisions can conjure up negative images of new cookie-cutter houses set on former farmland devoid of trees. This house in the Langford Farm subdivision caught my eye because of its tranquil setting. Mature landscaping gives privacy to the house, decks and pool and frames views beyond to the east fork of the Langford river.

A curved drive leads to this traditional styled house with its central story-and-a half wing flanked by smaller wings to each side. The first floor open plan, master suite on the main floor, and guest bedrooms on the second floor makes this a very liveable house.

$315,000 can buy you a great deal of late Victorian era charm.  The front of the house with its steep center gable, decorative attic window, bay window at the street level and wood siding caught my eye with it’s a curb appeal.  

The interior’s wood floors, high ceilings, fireplaces, woodwork, vintage touches, built-ins and cozy porch make this house warm and inviting. The rear yard with its high hedge along the property line gives this outdoor room privacy in its urban setting.

This week’s Kent County Price Point home  is a property listed for $585,000 at 116 High Street in Chestertown.

Even though it has been many years since I visited Williamsburg, this house would be right at home there. The “Buck Bacchus” house has been meticulously preserved according to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Historic Preservation down to the wood burning/cooking fireplace in the living room.

Frontage on two streets allows daylights into the interior rooms through the large 12/12 windows. Numerous details like the wood floors, original stairwell balustrade, raised paneling in the dining room and master bedroom fireplace evoke an era of gracious living. The current owner’s tasteful furnishings beautifully enhance the classic architecture. As an historic preservationist, I could easily live there too!
