ANNAPOLIS (May 9, 2016) – Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s Trish Dunn with the company’s Annapolis Church Circle office has listed 705 Penny Drive for $1.75 million. Sellers Colonel and Mrs. Torgerson designed the estate to embody the Jostens jewelry designs of classic and modern influences, creating a beautiful, simplistic architecture.

The home is a simple design of four gabled areas, floor to ceiling windows, and sweeping views of the Eastern and Chesapeake Bays. The lines in the home are clean and modern while the exterior is classic with gray cedar shingles and a metal roof.

The home’s 5,500 square-feet of space are filled with five bedrooms, four bathrooms, one partial bathroom, and a two-bedroom guest house. An updated kitchen features white, modern cabinets, oversized windows with views of the bay, a butler’s pantry, and granite countertops. The master suite offers direct access to the backyard, floor-to-ceiling windows with water views, a walk-in closet, soaking tub, and double vanity.

An attached guesthouse provides two bedrooms, a full kitchen, and a separate entrance for added privacy. Moving to the backyard, an in-ground pool compliments the bay views, while a dock offers space for two power boats. The property encompasses nearly three and a half acres, providing privacy for the waterfront retreat.

Unique to the home is the flagpole, situated between the in-ground pool and the Bay. Colonel Torgerson, a Vietnam War veteran, has a hobby of collecting flagpoles, which he incorporated into the home. The flagpole on the property was brought from the Pentagon and was finished to resemble the flagpole on his base in Cameroon Bay, during a tour in Vietnam. Affixed with a soaring eagle on the top, it is a nearly perfect resemblance to the original Vietnam flagpole.

 “The history behind the home and the special details in the design are among the most compelling parts of this unique property,” said Trish Dunn, sales associate. “Paired with the incredible views, this residence is a dream for waterfront living.”

Situated in the exclusive Cove Creek Club neighborhood, the residence is at the end of a one-quarter mile long driveway surrounded by mature trees.  The driveway was inspired from Colonel Torgerson’s favorite race track. Cove Creek boasts a marina, tennis court, bocce ball court, nine-hole/18 tea golf course, and a club house.
