Re: Best Homes w/Slip in the Chesapeake Bay Area

Ha, we have even more in common than I knew, Willy.

Over the years, hurricanes have taken their toll and some of the quaint, little homes have been knocked down and replaced by these "starter castles". Still, there are plenty of original homes in the area, thank goodness.

Re: Best Homes w/Slip in the Chesapeake Bay Area

I've owned waterfront property with an attached dock and ocean access. For the extra I paid for that little bit of bulkheaded waterfront, I could have built a much nicer home a few miles from the water, and kept my boat at the nicest marina in the country, and had a lot of money left over.

I enjoyed it, (up until Katrina) but I wouldn't do it again.

I lived in Arnold, on the Severn River, and kept my sailboat on a mooring in Chase Creek. It took me longer to dinghy out to it, than it did to drive/walk from my house to the dinghy rack that my neighborhood association provided.

Except for Maryland weather, and a too short boating season, that was a pretty nice set up.

It is almost impossible to build or cut trees within 1,000 feet of the Bay. The fine is 5k per tree! In order to reduce run-off, there are strict limits on how much of a lot can be covered with impermeable surfaces. The State wants you to build tall homes with small footprints.

Then there must be some exceptions to the rule or certain officials are more flexible than others, because a number of houses have gone up near us that don't seem to follow these codes. Nearly all the houses that I ave seen go up within a half mile of our beach on lots where an older house was knocked down are tall, but also as long and wide as the lot itself. In one case, two houses were built 3 feet apart and and arm's reach from the neighbors on either side.

^^ Yep. People who know how to petition the environmental boards, get all kinds of waivers. The starter castles I've seen, aren't just tall, they're much broader than the original bungalo's of the 60's that previously occupied the same property.

You have to believe that residential development has a major impact of bay pollution for these rules to not seem like the nanny state poking its nose in where it can.

Agricultural interests are far to strong to take on, so the largest polluter continues business as usual while less powerful interests get silly regulations piled on.
