It’s a majestic estate nestled in the woods of Annapolis. The owner built a seafood empire in Maryland and is selling it for what could be a record amount.
“The house is listed for $32 million,” said David DeSantis, TTR Sotheby’s International.
Steve and Maxine Phillips are selling their 23-acre home on the beautiful Severn River near the Naval Academy. The sprawling compound is called the Friary on the Severn because it used to be a monastery. The Phillips’–who own Phillips Seafood–bought it in 2002. They renovated the home, lived in it and are now selling it. Why?READ MORE: Maryland Weather: Nor'Easter Snowstorm Arrives
“Once the kids are gone and out of the house, sometimes you find yourself thinking, `Gee, this is more house than we really wanna take care of,'” DeSantis said.
It has 23,000 square feet of space, seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, two swimming pools, a spa and a nine car garage.
“Sometimes a change is good. It’s a change good for us; it’s a change good for people around us,” said Steve Phillips.
It’s a whopping price for a mega-house and broker David DeSantis says it could be a record sale. But at $32 million, who can afford it?
“There are certainly people in other cities and other countries who could see the appeal of owning a property in this town,” DeSantis said.MORE NEWS: 'I Am Innocent': Marilyn Mosby Talks To Churchgoers About Federal Charges
