Located on an historic Colonial-era estate on the banks of the Severn in Annapolis, this home served as a Capuchin monastery before falling into disrepair. The current residents “fell in love” with the decaying, old monastery, according to Bradley Nelson, a spokesperson for TTR Sotheby’s International Realty, and decided to restore the building, but with a decidedly modern bent. A central “control room” manages the temperatures and lighting levels in different rooms, the humidity level in the spa, the water temperatures of both indoor and outdoor pools, an elaborate entertainment system, and a network of cameras to monitor the extensive property. With ten bedrooms, ten full baths, 23 acres of land, and views of the Severn River, this $32 million estate has both history and quite a few high-tech “secrets.”
