Southern Charm in a Waterside Town
Located in the historic district of Cambridge - the third largest
town on Maryland's Eastern Shore, this magnificent Queen Anne
Victorian towers over Oakley Street and the scenic Choptank River.
Built some time between 1900 and 1910 by the Skinner family of
Dorchester County, this home with its slate roof, clapboard siding,
360 ° wrap around porch, magnificent gardens and three story round
tower has been an anchor on Oakley street for nearly 100 years.
No expense was spared when building this house - and in the last
100 years it has been in the possession of only two families, both
of whom kept it in immaculate condition. All plumbing and
electric has been updated, outside clapboard and slate roof are in
good condition and gardens have been kept up beautifully.
Ideal for a large family, Summer Retreat or Bed and Breakfast,
the Skinner house (and the Skinner ghost) wait patiently for a new
family to take ownership.
