This house is on the estate of John Raskob, builder of the Empire State Building. The four-bedroom, two-bath house is one of seven that Raskob built for his farm employees.

The house occupies an acre lot, and across the narrow private road is another acre with a field suitable for games that you might want to bring with you, such as volleyball, badminton, softball, croquet, and the like.

About the neighbourhood
The immediate area is Pioneer Point, as Raskob called his estate. It is more than two square miles, most of which is still farmland and woods. Raskob's main houses, one for himself and his guests and the other for his twelve children, are now owned by Russia and are used—or were—as a vacation facility for embassy staff. (As you may have heard, in response to Russia's email hacking, its Pioneer Point facility has been closed by order of the U.S. government.) One way to view the Pioneer Point area is to click on 'Map' above the photos and then switch to the satellite option.

On a regional scale, Maryland's Eastern Shore is one of the nation's great vacation areas. It is characterized by tidewater rivers that penetrate far inland from Chesapeake Bay. Each river...
