521 Scrimshaw Lane is an elegant waterfront lodge on the Severn River with unfettered natural beauty and a deep-water private pier. Rugged stone, mammoth wood columns, and sweeping walls of glass form an inviting structure that reflects the craftsmanship of the original 1920's dwelling as well as the timeless additions and improvements. The open floor plan is functional, allowing flexibility in the use of space, while also accentuating the water views, privacy, and outdoor areas. Step inside the double mahogany doors to the spacious foyer; the great room to the left blossoms in a mixture of wood finishes, antique brick and, of course, the wall of windows. There is ample seating, whether for dining or relaxing, overlooking the water. The gourmet kitchen includes a large center island with butcher block counter and a Wolf 6-burner range. There is also a c. 1890 Fortress Crawford coal-fired stove that is fully operational in addition to being a great conversation piece! The raised hearth gas fireplace offers a cozy respite on a chilly evening. The main level includes a rec room with bookshelves and an adjoining playroom or exercise room. There's also a bedroom with adjoining full bathroom, and powder room. Outside, the expansive water view patio looks like it belongs in Architectural Digest. Upstairs, there are three distinct spaces, all with water views: the public ?loft? area that includes room for lounging, an office, or an artist's studio divides the 2nd floor between the primary bedroom suite and the other bedrooms and bathrooms. The luxe primary suite includes a large bedroom, with gas fireplace, that has floor-to-ceiling waterside windows and access to the waterside balcony. The spa-like bathroom has a jetted tub, separate shower, and pretty vanity. There are two walk-in closets. For a short commute to work, there is a library with cabinets and bookshelves next to the bedroom. On the other side of the loft, there is a 2nd bedroom with water views and a hall bath with jetted tub. The 3rd upstairs bedroom suite includes a sitting area with fireplace and waterside bedroom or flip the uses to have a bedroom next to the fireplace and a yoga studio overlooking the river. This bedroom is next to the 3rd upstairs bathroom, with oversized shower. The dedicated laundry room is also on this floor. The stone and cedar shingle home is the perfect blend of old and new, exuding character and romance. Sited on almost an acre lot with picturesque sunset views, the property includes a sandy beach and a climate-controlled gazebo that sits right at the waters edge. The pier has a boat lift as well as a floating dock, and there is a kayak storage rack. Located in Severna Park, a blue-ribbon school district, this home is just minutes to local shops, dining, restaurants, and major commute routes.
