HGTV Dream Home 2002: Chesapeake Bay
Even during construction you could tell that this was a wonderful site for the HGTV Dream Home...you had the views, you had the swans, you had the grasses and you had everything that this site brings.House Planner Jack Thomasson
HGTV Dream Home 2002, framed by nine acres of picturesque gardens and meadows, is a traditional-inspired coastal home located on Maryland's Eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay. In complete harmony with surroundings, this home offers a sense of solitude with a private beach, tall expansive grasses and seperate guest house complete with a kitchenette and private balcony.
The two story, 2,800 square foot home with wraparound decks is a successful blend of 21st century efficiency and old world charm, featuring three distinct living areas with a natural flow in between. The great room, the heart of it all, makes a statement with 20 foot high cathedral ceilings and large windows with commanding views of the Chesapeake Bay.
On one side of the great room is the gathering room, which includes a kitchen, dining area and spiral staircase leading up to the second floor home office. On the opposite side of the great room is the cozy, romantic master suite and second floor bedroom. The decor represents serenity and simplicity, with wood and stone themes unifying the space, white and silver accents, and blue green washed natural pine floors capturing the color and shimmer of the water outside.
The simplicity of the house highlights stunning views and natural beauty of the outdoors, which can also be enjoyed on 4,000 square feet of deck and outdoor patio. To top it all off, this HGTV Dream Home 2002 comes complete with a mohagany sea kayak for navigating coastal waters, making this home a dream come true.
