New Home for a New Year? Take a Peek at 4 MilitaryByOwner Maryland Properties
Happy 2017! In this shiny New Year, you may have goals in mind for the months ahead.
If those aspirations include buying a home, the MilitaryByOwner website is a great place to start. If your military family is anticipating an assignment to Naval Air Station Patuxent River, we’ve selected a few must-see homes in the Maryland area.
Around 70 miles South of Washington D.C., the waters of the Chesapeake Bay meet the mouth of the Patuxent River at NAS Patuxent River. The dense woods and extensive trails of the nearby Patuxent River Natural Resource Management Area offer hiking options for an active family. After a full day of exploring, wander your way back to this grand oasis of a home.
1) Mechanicsville, Maryland
*Note: no longer listed.
This Maryland manor is all about the view. Boundless windows in this 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom home give a panoramic perspective of the nearby water and woods. Boasting nearly 2,900 square feet indoors, the well-kept decks offer additional outdoor living and entertaining space.
Speaking of ample elbow room, a mother-in-law suite with full kitchen and private entry may be ideal accommodations for family or friends on an extended visit. Or, this lower level living space may serve as an optimum rental opportunity. Perhaps this waterfront retreat may fit a military member looking to be a “geo bachelor”(live solo at this military assignment).
After a brief commute from NAS Pax River, you'll feel as if you are returning home from work to a vacation property. The allure of this 2.65 acre resort style abode includes 2 boatlifts off the private pier.
