Novelist Tom Clancy's 537-Acre Bayfront Estate for Sale

If you’re in the market for a 17,000-square-foot home on 537 acres overlooking the Bay, and you love military thriller novels, you’re in luck.

Peregrine Cliff, the Southern Maryland estate of the late novelist Tom Clancy, is for sale, listed at $6.2 million. The main house, a three-story custom contemporary home, has seven bedrooms, six full and two half bathrooms, and a long list of unusual amenities.


The indoor pool has a retractable roof, and there is a two-lane underground gun range. The home’s office/library has a built-in writing desk made of petrified wood, where you can imagine Clancy dreaming up Jack Ryan’s next adventure.

There are two four-car garages. A 1,000-square-foot guest house is adjacent to the tennis courts and sports fields.

The property is made up of 11 deeded lots, so it could be subdivided. The Huntingtown, Calvert County property is 40 miles south of Annapolis and 45 miles southeast of Washington, D.C. and Alexandria.

According to the listing by Cummings and Co.’s Angel Stephens, the property is being offered as-is. You can see the listing and dozens of photos of the spread by clicking here.

Peregrine Cliff is one of two multi-million-dollar properties for sale as part of Tom Clancy’s estate. Also on the market is a penthouse at the Ritz-Carlton Residences in downtown Baltimore, with panoramic views of the Inner Harbor.
