Location: Annapolis, Md.
The Skinny: Homes don't come much more genteel than Severn Side Farm, a 19th-century Annapolis manor house that so oozes Southern charm it practically begs you to take your ease on its porch and while away the afternoon with a mint julep-lubricated chat about the fine weather we're having—and by the way did you see what that Miss Cathy wore to church on Sunday? The view from that porch also has its charms, with a vista that includes the U.S. Naval Academy, the Annapolis skyline, and the Severn River, which empties into Chesapeake Bay a few miles down-river. While the original structure has been expanded since it was built in the 1840s, with the bedrooms and bathrooms now numbering six and five, respectively, historic touches preserved inside the home include the wood flooring, eight fireplaces, and windows (including one in the the den that bears the signature of the original owner). The home sits on nine of the 30 available acres of land, with the right of first refusal for the three additional plots included in the $5.3M listing price.
