During the course of any given work week, often our best moments are pulling into our driveways at the end of a long day and seeing our home, knowing that in moments we will be able to retreat into the sanctuary we have helped create with the ones we love.

Too often, a step outside to our decks, back porches and backyards is interrupted by the close proximity of a nosy neighbor, the buzz saw sound of a lawn mower, or the hum of nearby traffic.

Now imagine pulling into your driveway and being able to escape to huge decks and a patio. Imagine being able to enjoy your own private beach. Imagine being able to enjoy an evening dinner with your family in your own picnic area.

Well, the dream is real, and it's available in Cecil County.

This gorgeous, 4,000-square-foot home located at 5095 Turkey Point Road in North East is truly a site to behold, with commanding views of land and water from every one of its four bedrooms, kitchen, family room, dining room and sweeping decks. Built in 2002 and listed at $1,250,000, this two-story, three-bathroom home is situated on a nearly one-acre lot, just south of Elk Neck Park, near where the Elk River meets the waters of the Chesapeake.

The interior spaciousness of the main level of the home is accented by cathedral ceilings, many floor-to-ceiling windows, the architecture of wooden ceiling beams, and the coziness of an open kitchen. When it's time to light a fire during the cold months, you and your family can snuggle up in the family room beside a stone fireplace. The home also comes with a two-car garage.

The full measure of this home's beauty doesn't end at its doors. You will be able to enjoy your own private beach and picnic area, where you and your family will be able to savor the sunsets of a western view.

When looking for a home, often the make-or-break moment comes when we imagine ourselves living there, walking from room to room. Over the course of the next few pages, imagine yourself living here, on Turkey Point Road in North East, admiring the connection of privacy, water and land.
