Why Tim Zimmermann chose Edgewater
If you live in the Washington DC region and want to spend time on the water, there is no place more beautiful than the Chesapeake Bay. My family loves to fish, boat, swim, and crab, and a week (or even a weekend) relaxing at Bear Neck Creek House is the best getaway we can imagine.
What makes this house unique
I spent many years sailing the Chesapeake Bay, but when I first saw this house I knew I had to move there. The house is simple yet open, full of light, and comfortable. The access to the water is unbeatable, the open Chesapeake Bay is just around the corner, and the Rhode River just off the house opens up into a bay that offers everything from daysailing to quiet paddling. There is always something fun and interesting to do on the water, and ospreys and crabs to keep you company. What I especially love is the quiet of the sunrise, and the perfect light of the sunsets.
