Fall is in full swing! The geese are back, and the colors are starting to pop. It's also wedding season (believe it or not, October is the most popular wedding month here), and it's wonderful to sit outside on a Saturday night and hear the celebrations echoing up and down the water.
This week, I have two interesting featured listings. If you have been in the market for an inland home that offers privacy, this new listing in Trappe is a beautiful spot. Built by a highly regarded local builder, it has a great quality feel mixed with a country ambiance.
The other is a quintessential St. Michaels historic district gem. Chestnut Street is dotted with charming older homes, and you can stroll to town and be in the middle of all things St. Michaels. Thanks for looking! Debbie
