All bedrooms have ample dresser and closet space. The master bedroom with its water views has a private bath, queen size bed, with a 27' LED flat screen HD TV. A second bedroom has a queen bed, water views, and a 22' LED flat screen HD TV with DVD player.. The third bedroom has 2 twin beds and and also has a 22' LED flat screen HD TV with DVD player. TV.

You'll love visits during the cooler months when you can build a fire in our living room's raised hearth fireplace. If you travel with your laptop, our home is equipped with wireless Internet as well as cable TV.

Choose a good book from our collection in the magahony lined den, connect your gaming system into the 32' flat screen HD TV, watch a movie on the Blu-ray disc player from our selection of DVD's, or choose from a wide selection of board/card games for all ages. The game room adjacent to the kitchen contains a foosball and ping pong table for family fun or take advantage of the 4 adult bikes (helmets included).

Cambridge town center is 4 minutes away with restaurants, shopping, art galleries, antique shops, museums, and the history and charm of one of the oldest towns on the Eastern shore.

Day trips include dipping your toes in the Atlantic Ocean or hanging out on the beach in Ocean City one hour east of Cambridge, exploring historic Annapolis and the Naval Academy 60 miles west just over the Bay Bridge, or spending the day at Baltimore's Inner Harbor or Washington, D.C., both about 1.5 hours from Cambridge.

We hope you enjoy the Cambridge area and our home as much as we do!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      Why the Owner Chose Cambridge:
                      For years we crossed the Choptank River bridge and drove through Cambridge on our way to vacations in Ocean City and were intrigued by its quaintness. Over the past several years we spent a few long weekends exploring the area, decided to purchase a home, and found our property on Jenkins Creek. Although we may eventually retire here, until that time arrives we've decided to share our home as a vacation property. We hope you enjoy our home and the Cambridge area as much as we do!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Although located at the end of Jenkins Creek Road overlooking the water and surrounded by farmland and exclusive properties, our home is only moments from downtown Cambridge with all of its amenities. With minimal local traffic, walking, jogging, and bike riding are safe and pleasurable. The school and city park at the town end of Jenkins Creek Road have tennis and basketball courts, a baseball diamond, play areas for kids, and views of the Choptank river. All are a few minutes walk from our house. Also, because of our location, in the summertime you can explore the Cambridge area without the hassle of the beach traffic on Route 50.
