HOUSE OF THE DAY: A Maryland Crab Tycoon Is Selling His Sick Mansion For $32 Million

It may not be the most expensive home in the state, but being No. 2 isn't bad.

The Friary on the Severn in Annapolis, MD just hit the market at $32 million, making it the second most expensive house for sale in Maryland, according to Curbed, and this house is sick.

It's being sold by Steve Phillips, CEO of Baltimore-based fish purveyor Phillips Seafood, and his wife, who completely restored the place.

It now features a boat slip, a carriage house, 270-degree river views, a spa, a hot tub, a tennis court, wine cellar and grotto, a steam room, roof garden, a conservatory, and an over-sized ballroom ,just to name a few of the outrageous amenities.

The Friary has 10 bedrooms, 10 full bathrooms, and five half-baths.

Can't afford the tax bill anymore?
I'd move too.

Eh. Those cheapo's used exclusively Sysco products up and down their menu. Buying crabs from India and Russia. Really disgustingly cheap stuff. I met the owners on multiple occasions working there. Nice enough folks, but shortsighted. Would rather cheapen their product in order to boost their margins, than anything else. Could've been so much more, but will be remembered for being what they were.

Anon 7:51pm,

It worked, didn't it? Make all the excuses and assumptions you'd like, but their pockets are clearly deep enough. Their business plan doesn't seem shortsighted to me.
