Property Description

Dedicated to French Impressionist, Claude Monet, this house and it’s gardens on the Choptank River 7 minutes from Easton, Md. is an artist lover’s retreat.

The solid cedar home has steep-slanted Normandy-roofs with 30 foot prow-front windows forging you gently into the gardens, river and sunset. The 32 foot waterfront deck blends softly into 4 1/2 acres of gardens, loblolly pines, hardwood oaks and walking paths, reflecting Monet’s home and gardens. GivernyWest’s Japanese Footbridge is the exact replica of Monet’s footbridge in Giverny, France. A one-of-its kind in the world.

The house interior is wall to wall impressionist paintings from local Eastern Shore artists as well as artists from Monet’s hometown in Giverny. The 30+ foot pine cathedral ceiling with twirling fans covers the vast Great Room with fireplace, large dining table, hard-oak floors and an open kitchen with black granite counter-tops. A big black leather couch with large leather armchairs face the water windows. Wifi and cable TV are available.

A 100 foot pier jets into the Choptank River with expansive views of waters, winds, wildlife and waterfowl. A 300 foot nature trail crosses the wetland lagoon to the river. Butterflies abound. Crabbing and clamming are a reach away. Rockfish, perch and catfish await your hook, line and sinker provided. A gas grill awaits your talents with fire. You have complete privacy. Thick woods and wetland grasses separate you from quiet, invisible neighbors. Bocce Ball and basketball courts cater your competitive fun. And yes, there is a fire pit. And a permanent chess table straight-outta Washington Square Park in New York City. A writer’s history-library and wine cave will indulge you. 12 walking-paths and 12 sitting-areas call you to read, write, think, stare and/or snooze. A canoe is available for exploring the Choptank’s wetlands and waterways just a few paddles away. Sunsets are simply stunning.

GivernyWest is only a few minutes from world-class restaurants, cafes, art galleries, theaters, music venus and history in Easton; 15 minutes from Cambridge and 15-25 minutes from Oxford, St. Michaels, and Tilghman Island. Famous Black history and culture of Frederick Douglass, Nathan “Uncle Nace" Hopkins, Harriet Tubman and Henry Highland Garnet are close by. Your host, Dr. Bernie Demczuk, an African American history and culture professor, is available to offer Black history tours.

Your time at GivernyWest is an artist’s dream at a thinker’s pace. It’s a place and space to be just you.

GivernyWest on the Choptank: It’s not just a view, it’s a vision.
