Spy novelist Tom Clancy’s 537-acre Chesapeake Bay estate could be yours for $6.2M

The 537-acre Chesapeake Bay estate of Baltimore-born spy novelist Tom Clancy is up for sale for $6.2 million.

The property includes a 17,000-square foot residence, a mile of waterfront and “hundreds of acres of wooded seclusion.”

Peregrine Cliff, as the Calvert County property is known, sits about 60 miles south of Baltimore in Huntington.

Once a children’s summer camp, the property was built up by Clancy to befit some of his covert D.C. characters from his spy novels such as “The Hunt for Red October,” “Patriot Games” and “Clear and Present Danger.”

The listing says it’s being sold “as-is” and has 11 deeded lots.

“In the thirty years I’ve had the privilege to sell luxury properties in Maryland, I have never come across a residence quite like Peregrine Cliff,” said Angel Stevens, the listing agent with Cummings & Co. Realtors.

The property is among several assets that have been listed for sale from Clancy’s estate in recent years — such as his former Baltimore penthouse at the Ritz-Carlton Residences, originally put on the market for $12 million in 2015 and now listed at $7.9 million.

Others include memorabilia and other items Clancy amassed over his 28-year careers, such as a crocodile-skin coffee table, a Soviet-era wool military trench coat, a Russian trench periscope, a World War I model plane, a snakeskin-topped table, velvet-cut dining chairs, and a billiards table, a golf cart, and a telescope.

The most recent court records show Alexandra Clancy and the executor of her late husband’s will, J.W. Thompson “Topper” Webb, are scheduled for a settlement conference in January. Their lawyers could not immediately be reached for comment Wednesday.
