Some Active Properties For Sale
In the early 1900s if you entered Chesapeake Beach, Maryland, you would have found a thriving, self-sufficient incorporated community. People ventured from Washington, D.C, on steamboats to visit the beach community and the neighboring community of North Beach. Then, like now, you could enjoy beautiful views of the Chesapeake Bay, walk on the boardwalk, visit the public beach, shop and just enjoy a day away from city life. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to enjoy “The Great Derby” roller coaster that roared over the boardwalk in the early 1900s or stay at the luxurious bayfront Belvedere Hotel but there is plenty for visitors and residents to enjoy today.
You can visit the Chesapeake Beach Hotel and Spa for a great place to stay and be pampered, Play at the water park, go antiquing at the many shops and galleries, visit the Railroad museum, take a bay fishing charter, enjoy numerous restaurants or just relax at the beach and boardwalk.
There were seasonal and year-round homes being built then and the growth continues today. Credit goes to town officials for maintaining the charm of yesteryear. There are still hundreds of cottages that were built in the early 1900s dotted throughout the communities of Chesapeake Beach and neighboring North Beach. Housing choices range from luxurious bayfront condominiums, to bayfront estates and everything in between. There truly is a home to suit all needs for most home buyers today.
You can find newer single-family and town homes in the communities of Richfield Station and Bayview Hills. These two communities are within a mile of the bay and offer a wide range of housing. You can find town homes in both communities, some with garages. In Richfield Station, Ryan Homes is still offering new town homes and there are many resale condominiums, single-family homes and town homes for sale.
Prices range in the low to mid-200’s up to well over 500k, there is something for every buyer. My past clients love the area. I helped two families sell their town homes in Richfield Station and they both moved to single-family homes within the same community.
The commute from Chesapeake Beach to Washington, D.C., is not a bad ride. The major routes are Rt 260 to Pennsylvania Ave. straight into the Washington, D.C., area. It’s a nice ride to Old Town Alexandria, VA; and Annapolis as well.
There are many area schools including a new state-of-the-art high school nearby. This area has a lot to offer and should be on your list of places to visit and view homes for sale.
