About the owner: Two families own the Banning House together. Rick and Theresa enjoy Chestertow mainly in the summer time, Beth and Gordon mainly in the winter months. We are neighbors in Philadelphia, PA.
Why the Owner Chose Chestertown, MD, USA:
We bought Banning House because we love the quiet, easy atmosphere of Chestertown and the closeness to the Chester River. Rick loves sailing and we all find it a true retreat from our normal lives in Philadelphia. Everything we need is close by, shops and cafes, the river for sailing and Wilmer Park for strolling the riverfront. Since Chestertown is less than two hours from our homes, we can easily drive down for a few days or a weekend
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I often take morning walks around Chestertown for exercise, and I am continually fascinated by the diverse residential architecture. Many larger historic homes have been restored, and many smaller ones as well. In addition there are so many small houses and other buildings of varying shapes and styles. For variety I sometimes include a route through the beautifully kept buildings and grounds of the Washington College campus. With the Chestertown marina just a block down the street, it is easy for Rick walkdown, launch his boat and go for an afternoon sail.
