              Located in Bay Ridge, a quiet family-oriented community with semi-private beaches along the Cheasapeake Bay. Must-see activities include relaxing on our beach with friends and family, visiting historic downtown Annapolis, taking a sailboat tour from the harbor, visiting the U.S. Naval Academy, taking an estuary tour to see the bald eagles and blue herons, cycling or hiking, and enjoying the great fresh seafood! Kid-friendly activities abound in Annapolis year-round.

               

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 1950

              About: My name is Elizabeth. Our family home on the Cheasapeake Bay is one of the few original homes left in the neighborhood, and it's been in our family for three generations.

              Why Annapolis:
              Our family has fond memories of our summers in Annapolis which included walks on the beach, crabbing on piers along the backwater and having competitions to see who could catch the most crabs (we always thew them back). We also loved shopping along the cobblestone streets of historic downtown Annapolis. We were never bored here as kids, and now that we're adults it's just as much fun, and a relaxing escape as well.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our home is both the perfect getaway for a family, couple or small group of friends. The view from the front porch and second-floor window is gorgeous day and night. We keep binoculars close by to watch for blue heron, bald eagles, seagulls, kayakers and these days the occasional paddle boarder. Every day there are sailboats and barges to watch on the bay. Once a week, the bay is full of colorful sails as everyone takes their boats out for spinnaker day. We often spend the entire day on the beach, swimming, lying on rafts and reading. A day in Annapolis is only a 15-minute car ride away and features wonderful restaurants, great seafood, historic tours, beautiful gardens, sailboat tours of the Chesapeake Bay, great shopping, theater, pubs, bars and plenty of nightlife if you're so inclined. Family-friendly activities are available year-round. For day trips, Washington, D.C. is a short drive and Metro ride away. Be sure to ride the subway - it's the easiest and cheapest way to see Washington. Baltimore is also close by if you'd like to see the aquarium or attend a baseball or football game while visiting. There's baseball in D.C. too.
