Welcome to 2049 Chestnut Street! This delightful home, just a block from the Chesapeake Bay, offers a welcoming retreat after a stressful work day, whether fifty miles away or five… Kick off your shoes and relax on your front deck, or walk the sands of the Bay’s western shore as you watch dusk fall. Perhaps your way of relaxing is to grab a fishing pole and try your luck? The community pier* is there, waiting for you!
Accessed via a front deck bordered by a rich garden with native flowers, this home’s entry opens to a sweet room filled with natural light. Design this space for curling up with a good book, working at your desk, or your morning exercises... it’s yours to mold as you wish. Move into the comfortable living room, and on to the kitchen/dining area—the wide transitional openings throughout promote feelings of space, light, and fluidity. The kitchen and dining areas compliment, and don’t intrude upon, one another, and provide direct access to the back yard (with its own native plantings for your birding and butterfly enjoyment!)
Upstairs are two comfortable bedrooms –one with its own exit to the back yard—and a full bathroom. Ample closet space upstairs and down, central air, and double-paned windows make this home an efficient package.
An easy stroll brings you to the beach and also to miles of trails through protected forest lands that surround the community. When the heat of summer is but a memory, bundle up and enjoy the clear light of winter walks on the shore or in the woods, with only nature for company.
An abundance of nearby attractions include Calvert Cliffs State Park; Flag Ponds Nature Park; the waterside eateries of Solomons Island; the Calvert Marine Museum; shopping, dining, and a waterpark in “The Beaches” (Chesapeake Beach and North Beach), and various wineries and breweries. And if you commute to DC, you may choose to leave your car behind, taking the Commuter Bus instead!

*Kenwood Beach Community Association (KBCA):
Developed nearly a century ago as a summer retreat, Kenwood Beach has evolved into a full-time community, with some residents celebrating six generations of Kenwood Beach living. Annual events such as the Easter Egg Hunt, 4th of July celebration & golf cart parade, and a Halloween Haunted Trail Hayride are the pride of KBCA. Membership (voluntary, $150.00 annually) includes access to the pier and KBCA events. (Website: bit.ly/KenwoodBeach.)
