Historic, Chesapeake Bay waterfront estate--Clifton. This circa 1804, brick home, formerly owned by a president of the DuPont Company, has seven bedrooms, eight fireplaces, a dining room seating 20 people, a walk-in wine cellar, a billiards/pool room, a walk-in safe, a swimming pool and one quarter mile of high bank river frontage with a private beach. The panoramic views that extend for miles over the Manokin River are unmatched on the Eastern Shore. Offered fully furnished, the 7,386 sq. ft. home with 12 ft. high rooms, expansive screened porches and air conditioning enables gracious entertaining. The secluded, 68-acre property has abundant deer, wild turkeys and other wildlife. The estate also includes two rental homes, one in which the current estate manager resides, as well as two large barns and other outbuildings. Built circa 1804 and remodeled in 1938, the mansion itself rests in shade on a 68-acre parcel bordered by the wide and silvery Manokin River. Step into the home's broad entrance hall, a space far larger than most modern living rooms, and you can almost hear the voices of your friends and family arriving for a weekend of relaxation and good cheer. Step forward into the expansive living room, with its tall ceiling and marble-faced fireplace, and you may imagine yourself dancing with friends into the night, or simply chatting with family on a cool autumn morning. Wherever you turn in this historic home, the luxury of space will open your mind to new ideas for socializing, decorating, and enjoying the good life. Clifton is a grand home, but not an ostentatious one. You will love the mansion's stylistic flourishes and its breathtaking setting, but you will also find warmth within these walls, an atmosphere that says, "This is home. Live as you like". Whatever your mood, casual or formal, the house and its many amenities will serve you handsomely. For those times when you choose to entertain, two modernized kitchens will provide ample work space for cooks, caterers, and servers. Nearby, the home's elegant dining room will welcome up to 20 guests. After dinner, friends may want to linger around the large swimming pool or on one of two porches which overlook the river. For those handy with cards or a cue stick, there's a game room downstairs. And when it's time for sleep, your guests need not worry about rushing home to the city. Clifton's seven bedrooms will allow your friends to stay the night and begin a relaxing new day with you in the morning. Situated on a peninsula originally purchased in 1666 by Randel Revell, one of Somerset County's prominent settlers, the Clifton estate also includes two beautiful caretakers' homes, two large barns (including one with horse stalls), a brick pavilion which can serve as an artist's studio or workshop, and sundry other outbuildings. River frontage extends for approximately one quarter mile and includes a private beach. The estate's woodlands reside in a conservation easement; thus, the home's panoramic views are perpetually protected. Offered furnished.
