296 W Joyce Lane is a truly spectacular and unique waterfront opportunity on the Severn River. The history and charm of the location set it apart from the competition and the sprawling lot with mature landscaping, private pier, and HUGE Severn River views make it a one-of-a-kind property. With a desirable Western exposure, sunset will become the favorite part of the day. The possibilities are endless with this 1+ acre lot and 4-bedroom, 3 full bathroom home.
One of the things that makes this home really stand out is the approach, not only to the home but also into the community. As you drive under the old train tracks and past the lush acres and horse pastures, you immediately sense the unique charm and serene feel of the community. Just a short distance from the home, these train tracks dropped passengers off to finish their destination by ferry. Now, the tracks have become part of the Baltimore and Annapolis (B & A) biking and hiking trail. The tree-lined approach to the home opens to wide vistas of the Severn River. A gentle stroll to the water’s edge leads to a spacious, level yard that is a perfect spot for playing games or setting up chairs to relax and enjoy the stunning views. Boating, fishing, crabbing or even swimming are easy outdoor adventures from the expansive private pier. With BIG views up and down the Severn River, the pier offers an ongoing invitation to enjoy the Chesapeake Bay breeze blowing up-river and breathtaking views.
The home is spacious and bright with so many opportunities for the next owner to make it their own. The main living space has walls of windows facing the water, a wood-burning fireplace, and access to one of the waterside decks. Up a few steps, the kitchen has room for a dining table and direct access to a second waterside deck. Down the hall there is a library with wood-burning fireplace. The primary bedroom suite, with private bathroom, has Severn River views and sliding glass doors to the waterside deck and yard. There are two more bedrooms and a full bathroom on this level. The walk-out, lower level of the home has a fourth bedroom with water views and a full bathroom. There’s also a large utility room that offers additional storage space. The attached one-car garage is accessible from this level.
This very special property has brought such joy to one family for more than 40 years, but it is now time for a new resident to create memories…take advantage of this incredible opportunity to renovate the existing home or plan your dream house. Schools include Severna Park High, Severna Park Middle, and Jones Elementary. Although it is a short drive to major commute routes (Rte 2 and Rte 50), the drive into the community really makes you feel very distant from city life. This is the spot to come and relax!
