CHESAPEAKE BEACH, Maryland, 20732 $158,900
Build your dream home with access to the gorgeous Chesapeake Bay in one of Maryland~s top school districts with easy access and drive to DC, Baltimore, Annapolis, Waldorf. Fish the Chesapeake Bay to the east or the Patuxent River to the County~s west side. The lot is in ~Willows Woods~, commonly known as "The Willows". The lot offers semi-private (neighbors only) access to the Chesapeake Bay (beach common area) for a small annual, non-mandatory, upkeep fee, without an HOA / fee. This is one of the Chesapeake Bay~s few, ~water privileged~ neighborhoods with a park, sandy beach, picnic area and boat ramp at the Bay. Water access / water privileged lots are typically valued higher than non-water access lots, as there are fewer of them available. The lot is nearly level, 1.17 perked acre, ready to build, with only small diameter trees to clear for construction. To the south side of the lot there is a woods buffer as well as across the street. All utilities are in place. Percolation test passed in 2003 has the approved site plan with survey, septic and house location approved by the Calvert County Health Department. Percolation test passed again with a recent update (March 2019) for a 3000-4000 square foot, 4-bedroom home (or less). This lot is ready for construction. The lot is located 10 minutes off route 4, 10 minutes south of the playground of North Beach with a water park, charter fishing excursions, a marina and beautiful fishing pier, numerous excellent restaurants, night clubs, shopping and Bay front shows with displays such as the Bayfest. This lot is also located just 5 minutes north of Breezy Point, which offers an expansive sandy beach, with a playground / picnic park and a marina for boaters. Note, there is no uniform per acre price comparison for land in Calvert County without consideration of TDRs, Transfer Development Rights. It is price per building lot. To stimulate land owners and farmers to retain land, and in the County~s mandate to preserve green space, the county government devised a development allotment for land. Larger land owners have nearly all sold off their development rights. Thus, a 17- or 100-acre plot of land may be merely one building site with a higher taxation load as compared to a 1 acre lot / building site. What has remained predictable is that water front lots are valued higher than water privileged lots and both are valued higher than interior lots with no view or access to the water.
