As the summer winds down and Washingtonians return from their beach vacations, they may wish for a daily water view rather than limiting themselves to one week every year.

For those who can afford to dream big, a waterfront property was just listed for sale at 1049 Back Bay Beach Rd. in West River, Md., that rests at the tip of a peninsula with water on three sides. Priced at $2.495 million, this custom-built home completed in 2006 has been designed to maximize water views from every room.

The property includes 4,800 square feet with five bedrooms, four baths and a two-car garage. The grounds include a protected deep water pier on the South Creek and a floating dock with space for two boats and an electric lift. The house has double porches overlooking the water and landscaped grounds with stone walls and walkways.
