Mrs. English had a particular fondness and respect for nature and wanted her home to reflect the harmony of living nestled in the abundance of breathtaking serenity on the high bank of the Wicomico River, overlooking the expansive protected views of the Historic Pemberton Park.

Solid wood cabinets, built in stainless gadgets like paper towel holders, foil and plastic wrap dispensers, bread storage, pull out cutting boards, you name it! Eat in area in the kitchen provides the perfect breakfast space and access to the oversized deck. Experience incredible water views, so high you barely see land!
