Dreaming of a waterfront home in Annapolis Maryland? It’s that time of year when the Chesapeake Bay calls, drawing those who love the water to find a way out, by canoe or kayak, sailboat or powerboat, cruising or fishing, and quite often, enjoying a sunset cocktail.
And sooner or later, the idea dawns, “Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a home on the water?”
In addition to being a wonderful weekend destination, Annapolis is also a wonderful place to live. Being close to Washington, DC, and Baltimore, Annapolis residents enjoy all the resources that those cities provide. At the same time, Annapolis is a small historic town sited on the Severn River on the shore of the Chesapeake Bay, with a rich cultural heritage and lively activities.
Annapolis is the state capital of Maryland, home to the United States Naval Academy and St. Johns College, the National Sailing Hall of Fame, and more. Annapolis is known as the “Sailing Capital of America.”
In 2000, the U.S. Census Bureau reported a population of 35,838 (not including 4,264 residents at the Naval Academy or students at St. John’s College). (We are eagerly awaiting the 2010 data; the city has grown!) More than 4.5 million people visit Annapolis each year.
Annapolis is located in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. The county harkens back to the 1600’s, and is very closely tied to the water as it borders on the Chesapeake Bay. In fact, the county has 437 miles of waterfront. The county is also blessed with historical sites in abundance.
From Annapolis, it is easy to reach Washington, DC, Baltimore, Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI), or almost any destination in the Washington, DC Metro area.
Here are some waterfront homes in different price ranges, to help you dream and explore…
And some local clubs…
