The late William J. Crocker, a Florida based property developer built Bracebridge Hall is a 38,000 sqft brick Georgian created in 1990 by architect David Easton.
This home is located on an impressive 557 acres of countryside with around one mile of shoreline on tributaries of Chesapeake Bay. This home includes a stately columned center hall, a large living room with a coffered ceiling and views to the river. The dining room has an Asian-design mural and the paneled library includes a corner fireplace and floor-to-ceiling glass doors with access to terrace.
After building the home, it was put on the market from 1992 - 1997 for an asking price of $14 million; it finally sold to credit card behemoth MBNA (a/k/a Maryland Bank National Association now part of BoA) for $4.35 in '97, they expanded it and used it as conference center.
The home is currently listed for sale for $35.5M.
