Crownsville

Crownsville, Maryland (21032)

Crownsville, Maryland, is located approximately seven miles northwest of Annapolis, on the west bank of the Severn River. It is home to Eisenhower Golf Course, the Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds, the Maryland Renaissance Festival, and several water-oriented communities.

Eisenhower was Anne Arundel County’s first public golf course thirty five years ago, when it was designed by Ed Ault. It is a hilly layout with a seven-acre pond and several creeks that come into play on several holes. The fairgrounds is hosts several events each year, in addition to the County Fair, including flea markets, craft fairs, concerts, and even a tractor pull.

Each summer and fall you can experience Medieval times coming to life at the Maryland Renaissance Festival. Colorfully costumed performers sing, dance, joust, and re-create scenes of that period, to the delight of visitors. You can even rent costumes to get in the spirit yourself, or hold a themed wedding in front of the chapel.

Other than these recreational venues, the community is  known as a quiet residential area near Annapolis, with waterfront neighborhoods boasting private community beaches along the Severn River.

Some of these neighborhoods were developed as summer getaways in the early 20th century for Washington and Baltimore residents to enjoy water-oriented activities like fishing and boating. Now they are  occupied year-round residents who treasure those same pursuits and the convenient location.

Crownsville home prices start just under $300,000 and many of the waterfront homes are priced well above a million dollars.
