Conveniently located 3 miles outside of Oxford, and 7 miles from Easton, this very private and beautiful estate home “Old Wintersell” has everything the Eastern Shore vacation seeker could want! The home itself has been carefully and thoughtfully restored to preserve its historical features, with all the modern amenities added including a gourmet kitchen with island and Viking cooktop, open family room, sun room, 2nd floor master suite, 1st floor suite, and billiard room. Outdoor activities abound: Enjoy the dock for fishing, crabbing, or boating in a scenic cove on desirable Island Creek. Relax by the private pool and take in the peaceful waterfront view. Fire up the plumbed outdoor grill and savor a home cooked meal from one of the local farmer’s markets. Or enjoy the property’s fourteen acres of classic Talbot county natural beauty including a spacious yard with large specimen trees, waterfowl impoundment (pond), and natural habitat grasses with mowed walking perimeters where deer and other wildlife abound. Easy biking to Oxford, Oxford-Bellevue ferry, and Oxford restaurants and ice cream parlor.
Circa 1845 Greek Revival style estate home has undergone major additions and renovations while preserving original architectural details. The house is designated a Historic District site by the Talbot County Historic Preservation Commission. Original lock sets, heavy mortise and tenon doors, wide plank heart pine flooring, center hall staircase detailing, and antique wavy window glass all harken back to an earlier time reflecting the Eastern Shore's strong Colonial history.

Kayaks would be a nice addition to an already spectacular property.
Owner Reply: There is one one man Kayak at the property. We plan to add 2 additional kayaks this season. If more kayaks are needed we we can provide the name of several outfitters in the area.
We lived and worked in Talbot county for 14 years in the medical community. When we decided to move for career reasons, we thought we would try renting the house to keep it as a second home. We love the outdoors including tennis, golf, skiing, boating, gardening, swimming, soccer, lacrosse, biking, walking, and nature watching.
Beautiful area with great recreational activities.
Privacy, beautiful water views, gardens, fields and pond, abundant wildlife
Just 3 miles from Old Wintersell, Oxford is everyone's dream town – it's picture postcard perfect. The Tred Avon River bustles with yachts, sailboats, and power boats. Tree-lined streets and well groomed gardens grace grand historic homes hemmed by picket fences. This is the town where James Michener outlined his epic “Chesapeake” at the historic Robert Morris Inn. Be sure to dine at Latitude 38 and Pope's Tavern, enjoy ice cream from the Highland Creamery, and take a ride on the Oxford Bellevue Ferry.
Seven miles from the Bellevue ferry stop across the Tred
Avon River (either by bike or car) you'll find St. Michaels, which is arguably one of America`s most enchanting towns. Here, no one rushes to do anything unless they're racing log canoes on the Miles River. Along its maze of alley-like residential streets, clapboard shipbuilder's cottages live next door to Victorian Homes.
