The Prestigious Dr. Dodson House

200 Cherry Street, St. Michaels, Talbot County, Maryland, 21663, United States
  • $2,175,000


Built in 1799 and expanded in 1872, the prestigious Dr. Dodson House is a luxurious gem situated on a tranquil street in the heart of St. Michaels’ Historic District which marries two hundred plus years of charm with modern amenities and conveniences. This stately Federal style brick colonial boasts a rich eastern shore history, including the location of a private residence, tavern, the town’s first post office, a medical office and even a top-ranked bed and breakfast. It offers five bedrooms including four en suite bedrooms and a luxurious, private primary suite. The property can be used as either a private residence or for commercial purposes. While an historic home, it offers many exceptional, state-of-the-art features, including central air and a large eat-in commercial kitchen with a six-burner Vulcan stove and dual ovens. Expansive windows allow light to flood into its many high-ceilinged rooms. You can cuddle up during the winter near any one of the property’s five handsome wood burning fireplaces. You may enjoy its carriage house complete with a parking garage. Adding to this property’s extraordinary features are a wine cellar, award-winning gardens, and a premiere location a mere walking distance to St. Michael’s vibrant downtown with its specialty shops and upscale restaurants. As you relax on the property’s elegant two-tiered sawn baluster porch, you can imagine seeing Maryland-born abolitionist Frederick Douglass speak to crowds and reporters from its second level, as he did following a reconciliation meeting with his former slave master on the property shortly after the Civil War. This one-of-a-kind, exceptional residence offers a rare opportunity to own a significant piece of St. Michaels’ noble, proud history. **Showings by appointment only**
