Homes For Sale In Sherwood Forest In Annapolis Maryland

Sherwood Forest in Annapolis Maryland was originally conceived as an amusement park on what was the Startzman Farm located along the South banks of the Severn River. After the plan fell though in the early 1900's developers cleared trees to build a bucolic summer resort. Highlights of the planned community include a golf course, general store, post office, swimming pool, beach and marina, and much more. Demand for the homes can be high with many homes selling to current residents or their relatives. Once you arrive at Sherwood Forest you might not want to leave. But if you did, you are just minutes from everything that Annapolis has to offer including nightlife, local shops, superb restaurants, and the many attractions Annapolis has to offer residents and visitors alike. There are often several waterview and non-waterview homes for sale in the community of 340-plus homes ranging from modestly priced to expensive luxury homes. "Sherwood Forest Green" is a custom mixed color that many residents have used to paint their homes. From Sherwood Forest you can commute to Washington or Baltimore, to nearby government contractors or other local area employers. BWI, the region's international airport, is about 20 minutes away.

Michelle, Sherwood Forest was originally conceived for recreation and amusement, and many of these original qualities still echo in today's "summer camp" lifestyle in Sherwood Forest where rustic cottages have given way to luxury residences. For kids and adults there are plenty of activities in which to engage both on and off the water.

Chris and Dick, in the winter we have great water views from many homes along the banks of the Severn River.  As spring comes, the wide open vista from this particular home will be restricted to a certain extent as the trees grows leafs.  Sherwood Forest is lush and green in the summer and the trees provide a welcome cool canopy throughout most of the summer months.
