BEAUTIFUL AND VERY PRIVATE HISTORIC WATERFRONT ESTATE HOUSE

Oxford Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate, 6 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

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.

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.

The Owner purchased this estate in 1997

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL, COMFORTABLE HOME!

  • 5 of 5
My siblings and I recently rented Old Wintersell for a two night getaway for my Mother's 80th birthday. It was perfect for our family of ages 80 down to 7 years old. Each of us was comfortable in our sleeping quarters and the common areas were perfect for playing games, watching old family movies, and cooking wonderful meals. The design of the house was fun and the kids had a blast exploring the uniquely interconnected rooms and the grounds. The first floor suite was perfect for my Mother, both easily accessible and secluded. The sunrises over the water out front and the geese visiting during the morning hours provided much-needed serenity so close to the hustle and bustle of the Washington area. While we visited in the off-season, I'm absolutely positive the spring and summer seasons here must be beautiful. It would be wonderful to return. Thanks very much to the owner for her acceptance of and quick responses to all my questions. She and her family's property made my Mother's 80th a birthday to remember!

BEAUTIFUL HOME! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  • 5 of 5
I booked this home for a family girls weekend. Our group consisted of 10 people and the home was plenty spacious for our group including plenty of bathrooms. The home was well maintained and decorated. All the women in our family were impressed with how clean and relaxing the home was. The location was great - it was easy to catch the ferry over to St Michael's. highly recommend!! I'd stay there again.

WONDERFUL HOME FOR FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed here for my mother's 60th birthday. The home and property are wonderful. There is plenty of space for a large group. The home is the perfect mix of old-world charm and modern amenities. It's close to Easton and St. Micheal's but also secluded from other homes. The owner is very lovely. She was beyond helpful with my many questions. We'd love to return to her home and would highly recommend it to others looking for a nice retreat.

MEMORABLE STAY

  • 5 of 5
My family had an absolutely wonderful time at this gorgeous home. It was perfect for our long weekend getaway. There was no shortage of fun for everyone, and all the adults and kids had a blast. We all enjoyed kayaking (especially the kids!), and although we did not catch anything (too early in the season), fishing and crabbing right off the dock were too convenient not to give it a try. We took the ferry over to explore St. Michaels which is very close by. Everyone also loved ending each evening outdoor by the fire roasting marshmallows and making s'mores.

The owners were incredibly responsive and super knowledgable, having lived at the home for many years themselves.

The home is spacious, very nicely renovated with cozy furnishings and modern upscale appliances, and included plenty of entertainment for everyone. The kids' games and outdoor playset kept the children occupied when we were preparing meals.

I highly recommend this vacation home and we look forward to returning!

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.
