The Oystermen’s Pearl is an Eastern Shore Farmhouse that sits on a wonderful tree-lined lane and is well shaded with pear, apple, and fig trees. The gray home features a coastal blue door with a nautical boat themed front entry. In 2015, the home was purchased from a friend of the Davidson Family, Commander Roy Johnson, a retired Navy pilot, who served in both Korea and then Vietnam. Subtle Naval tributes can be found throughout the home to honor the service of Commander Johnson, Chief John Delduco, the innkeeper’s husband; and Navy Seabee/Proprietor, Nathan Davidson.
The home offers an inviting entrance into the open living room that flows into a generous sized dining room. Warm American cherry floors are found throughout the home. The living room features comfortable seating, nautical lamps, a flat screen TV, and Michele’s grandfather’s rocking chair from their family farm in Ohio.
A completely stocked kitchen creates a welcome space with warm cherry cabinets. The main level bedroom features an antique 4 post queen bed, a corner chair, a bedside table with a reading lamp, and an antique dresser left by Commander Johnson. The main level offers an oversized full bath with handicapped shower, toilet, and sink designed to accommodate individuals in wheelchairs.
The upstairs features two nice size bedrooms and a half bath. The largest bedroom in the house faces the lane and boosts a beautiful 4 poster queen bed, a high boy cherry dresser, a lovely painted side table with a reading lamp, and small antique table and chairs make a wonderful space for card games, afternoon tea, or evening cocktails.
The third bedroom faces the back yard with a tree house feel. Delicate crocheted curtains filter early morning light. Twin beds straddle a 1950’s bar cart that holds a lamp, nautical books, and magazines. A dresser and mirror complete the room, which is perfect for kids wanting their own private get-away.
