Bodkin Creek Communities

Anne Arundel County

Pasadena, Maryland
 
There are four bodies of water located in Pasadena that serve as tributaries to the Chesapeake Bay. Along the shores of these tributaries are several fine waterfront communities offering waterfront homes, waterfront properties and water oriented privileges such as marinas, boat launching facilities, and beautiful beaches. These major tributaries from the most northern point of Pasadena to the southern borders of Annapolis are Stoney Creek, Rock Creek,  Bodkin Creek, and the Magothy River.
 
Bodkin Creek is a wonderfully secluded body of water conveniently located halfway between Annapolis and Baltimore. The deep channel serves boaters well as they pass through the basin and into the lovely Main, Back & Wharf creeks. Along the shores are the following communities (accessed by vehicle from Mountain Rd and Fort Smallwood Rd):
 
Forest Glen
Ventnor
Orchard Point
Green Gables
Pinehurst on the Bodkin
Pinehurst Harbour
Bodkin Pointe
Poplar Ridge
Bahama Beach
Belhaven Beach

Forest Glen
A Pasadena waterfront community on Main Creek of the Bodkin
 
Forest Glen is a wonderful community comprised of about 114 homes, 79 of which are waterfront. The majority of the waterfront homes were built in the 1940's and 50's and used as summer cottages. Today most of the homes are year round residences, while approximately 14.9% of them remain 2nd homes or investment properties. Some of the cottages have kept their quaint, original characteristics, while many others have been transformed into larger, updated homes to accomodate year round living.
 
Public schools for this neighborhood are Bodkin Elementary, a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon school, Chesapeake Bay Middle School and Chesapeake High School. Specific school details can be obtained at the Maryland Department of Education's website www.MDReportCard.org

Ventnor has approximately 113 homes total, 98 of which are waterfront. Most homes in Ventnor are well improved or have been rebuilt, making it one of the most desirable waterfront communities in Pasadena.  Bordering the shores of Main, Wharf & Bodkin Creeks, Ventnor is an excellent location for homebuyers seeking quick access to the basin and the Chesapeake Bay. About half of the homes in Ventnor were built in the 1960's & 70's. Slightly less than half were built in the 1940's & 50's, with the remaining built between 1980 and 1999. Approximately 10.5% of the homes in Ventnor are second homes or investment properties, while the rest serve as year round residences.

Pinehurst
A Pasadena waterfront community on Main Creek & Wharf Creek of the Bodkin, also on the famed Chesapeake Bay
 
Of the approximately 126 homes in Pinehurst, 81 are waterfront. Pinehurst borders Locust Cove, Bodkin Creek and the Chesapeake Bay. One of the most charming waterfront communities, Pinehurst offers a very unique opportunity for a homeowner to have their own private sandy bayfront beach in Anne Arundel County. Those homes along the bayside offer neverending Chesapeake bay views. Many of Pinehurst's homes are on more protected parts of the Bodkin or Locust Cove. For boaters, this setting is ideal.
 
 
29 of the waterfront homes in Pinehurst were built in the 1950's, while a handful were built before and in subsequent years. Homes range in size from small cottages to 4000+ square foot luxurious residences. Lot sizes rang from 1/5 of an acre to just over an acre. Pinehurst's private location at the end of a heavily wooded peninsula and bordering parts of Downs Park make it one of the most coveted waterfront communities in Pasadena. 14.9% of the homes in Pinehurst are second homes or investment properties.
 
 
Since 1/1/2010, 3 homes have sold in Pinehurst. The average sale price of those 3 homes is $592,333.
