Set within park-like grounds on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, Seaglass on the Miles is an estate that includes a charming landscaped garden with boxwood hedges and perennial plantings. Brick paths link the garden with the main house, a three-car garage and a four-room carriage house for guests.

Steps lead from the grounds to a dock on the Miles River and a sandy beach, a rarity in this section of Talbot County.

The owners and their guests love to search for sea glass on this beach. The grounds also include a heated swimming pool with a river view. The dock has space for two boats, and the entire property has 118 feet of water frontage.

The extensive grounds and expansive views of the Miles River make the home feel as though it is on a private island, yet Seaglass is just minutes away from the historic town center of Easton.

Now on the market for $1,795,000, this property, at 25828 St. Michaels Road, is fenced for privacy and features a unique blend of Old World craftsmanship and 21st-century amenities.

Built in 2000 by a couple who owned an antique shop and built museum-reproduction furniture, this home has been completely custom-designed with meticulous attention to details. For example, the owners installed wood doors, antique wide-plank wood floors, pickled wood flooring upstairs and a checkerboard-design wood floor in one room.

The owners added handmade light fixtures and antique-looking door handles and bathroom fixtures. Just as spectacular as the early American-style details in this home are the wide views of the Miles River from every room and from the multiple porches and decks, which rim the main house and the carriage house.

The recently completed carriage house features wood floors throughout and a great room with oversized wood doors, which can be opened to a scenic river view. The carriage house also has a fireplace, an office and a powder room on the first floor.

Upstairs are two bedrooms and a full bath, plus a deck with sweeping water views.

The main house features hardwood floors throughout and includes a spacious 27-by-15-foot living room on the main level. The unusual combined kitchen and dining area includes antique corner cupboards, a built-in hutch and French doors to the porch.

The main level also has a family room with a fireplace. The first-floor master suite has a private full bath and French doors that open to a porch.

Upstairs are two more bedrooms, each with dramatically sloping ceilings. These two bedrooms share a second full bath.
