Ordinary people enjoy the sensation of wriggling their toes in the sand while vacationing. Only a privileged few families own a personal beach.

The estate now on the market at 7 Carrollton Road, Annapolis, comes with 650 feet of sandy beachfront on the Severn River, plus a few additional perks such as a private pier, 3.5 acres of land, a swimming pool and a 10,000-square-foot mansion.

The residents of this home can take a short boat or car ride to reach Annapolis City Dock and its restaurants and shops. A brief bike ride brings residents to Annapolis and to the Baltimore & Annapolis Trail. However, perhaps the best perk of all is the spectacular vistas across the Severn River of Historic Annapolis, the Naval Academy.

Now on the market for $6,495,000, this mansion features multiple balconies and terraces and a rooftop deck for relaxing and entertaining and enjoying Fourth of July and New Year’s Eve fireworks and the Blue Angels flight demonstrations.

Outdoor entertaining can also be enjoyed at the swimming pool, which overlooks the river, or by the fire pit, which has a view of Annapolis. Both an elevator and steps lead to the private pier and boatlift on the Severn River, and a trail leads from the house to the beach.

Located in the Pendennis Mount community, this stately home has an elegant exterior of brick with multiple columned porches and a three-car garage. Hardwood flooring adds warmth to the home, which has high ceilings, myriad windows and French doors, crown moldings and four fireplaces.

The main-level rooms include a two-story foyer and a formal living room wrapped in windows, with a fireplace as the focal point. One corner of the living room has a built-in bar with seating. The formal dining room has two sets of French doors, walls of windows, crown moldings and a chandelier. The library features a fireplace with an elaborately detailed fireplace and a chandelier.

The kitchen includes abundant custom wood cabinets, a center island, two dishwashers, a wine cooler and a dual-fuel range.

Adjacent to the kitchen is the breakfast area, which has French doors leading to one of the many terraces. Beyond the breakfast area is the family room, which has a fireplace at one end.

Upstairs, the master suite has sweeping views, a sitting area and French doors to a private terrace. The master bath has a tub placed on a platform under a window with river views. This bath also has a separate shower and two separate vanities.

The upper-level media room also has French doors leading to a terrace.

Four additional bedrooms, each with a private full bath, are on the upper level. Even the upstairs laundry room has a picture window with a river view.

The third level has two additional rooms with window seats and dormer windows, plus a full bath and access to the roof deck.

A separate entrance above the garage leads to additional space for a home office or private guest quarters.
