Edgewater 21037 Just Outside Annapolis


If you are new to our great area or are just looking to make a move within Annapolis and Anne Arundel County, you just have to check out Edgewater. Located at what I call the gateway to the Southern end of the county, Edgewater offers small town living with lots of amenities. Edgewater is also home to Historic Londontowne, once a thriving port town on the South River.

Located 31 miles from Washington DC and 5 miles from Annapolis  Edgewater is located on a peninsula bordering the South River, Rhode River and the Chesapeake Bay. Own a boat or want to? Edgewater is a great place to live the lifestyle with its easy access to numerous marinas and boat ramps. If planes instead of boats are your thing then you are in luck. Edgewater is home to a small private plane air strip called Lee Airport.

The South River area is where I grew up. Back then living in South County was considered living in the country to those city dwellers of Annapolis. But we didn't care as it also meant living at the beach. 

Over the years Edgewater has become quite the grownup. Gone are the days of small beach communities hugging the shoreline with farm land bursting at its edges. Slowly Edgewater expanded over the years with the most recent growth spurt happening in the late 1990's, early 2000's. The Edgewater of today has just about every shopping convenience at your fingertips, great cultural events, deep history and roots and a fine mix of homes in all sizes and price ranges.

Whatever your lifestyle, whatever your wish, Edgewater is certainly a place to consider calling home.

Great post, Martha!  And I wanted to comment on your historic listing in Upper Marlboro, but couldn't since comments are disabled.  'Looks like its really priced right, based on the information available.

Thanks Margaret- Not anywhere has elaborate as yours but a start none the least. I disabled the historic listing because I didn't know if that was something to be commented on. Should I change it?
