Sometimes, during a military career, the number one priority for finding a home is a fast and easy commute to the base where you’re stationed.

The homes we're highlighting for MilitaryByOwner’s Homes of the Week are located in Odenton and Severn, Maryland, just a few miles from Fort Meade.

 1920 Tuckahoe Ct - Odenton, Maryland

MilitaryByOwner Listing MBO1447021

For Rent: $2,500/mo. 

Tuckahoe Court Kitchen

A two-mile commute to Fort Meade and a five mile commute to NSA is a pretty big perk, but so is the walkable access to the Odenton MARC station. Arrive in Baltimore in minutes, or the MARC connects to the Metro if a trip into Washington, D.C. is needed. 

It's a good feeling to move into a brand new home, especially when amenities such as hardwood floors and a brand new washer and dryer are included. Those with tight schedules will appreciate the fact the lawn care is handled by the community’s HOA. 

Tuckahoe Court Master

This townhouse in Odenton is waiting for its first renters to move in and enjoy the modern finishes throughout the home. Downstairs, you'll find stainless appliances and a quartz counter top kitchen island. Upstairs, the master bedroom is en suite, offering the coveted dual vanities. 

(Please note that some of the pictures are of a model home, similar to the townhouse available for rent.)
