Location: Ocean City, Maryland
There are plenty of lovely historic colonials and Victorians in the Northeast, but every now and again a contemporary catches our eye. Take this five-bedroom, five-bath home in Ocean City, Maryland. It’s a big one at 6,050 square feet, and the house boasts a slew of amenities—think saltwater pool, hot tub, fire pit, putting green, fitness center, and koi pond—that would make many a Los Angeles mansion jealous.
But instead of a sprawling, architectural mess like a McMansion, this contemporary design from David Quillin Architecture Berlin uses glass, steel, and concrete to create an intriguing waterfront home. A state-of-the-art Boffi kitchen was custom made in Milan, while the house incorporates deck “skywalks” to shuttle the owners from one living space to another and provide top-notch sunset views.
Two master suites have large bedrooms and one comes with Boffi built-ins, a 600-pound custom Corian tub with Terrazzo tile flooring, and a custom rain shower. Tall ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows produce a light and airy space, and a heated and air conditioned garage with glass panels rounds out the amenities.
If this contemporary listing looks perfect for you, 12933 Old Bridge Road is on the market now for $3,599,000.
