For homebuyers looking for carefree living near the water, a residence at Heron Harbor Condominiums in Havre de Grace might be an idea that floats to the top.
The Unit A condo at 555 Concord St. offers magnificent views and is move-in-ready for $749,900. It is part of a community of three waterfront buildings.
The setting near historic Concord Point (the site of one of the oldest continuously operating lighthouses on the East Coast) at the mouth of the Susquehanna River overlooks a restored marina and offers beautiful vistas of the Chesapeake Bay. The unit's open floor plan has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, with a large kitchen and breakfast bar, a dining room and a spacious living room.
"Each [residence] is excellently constructed of brick and steel and with secure parking at the entry-level garage," said Doug Magill of Homebuilders Realty Services, the listing agent for Heron Harbor. "The homeowner will have one reserved space and can drive in and take the elevator right up to the unit. There are bike racks in the garage and even kayak storage."
The Heron Harbor Marina offers 115 slips with the option of leasing one. There is a swimming pool and a floating pier system.
The condo has about 2,350 square feet of living space with features that include a gas fireplace, Silestone countertops, Andersen windows, hardwood and ceramic tile flooring, a whirlpool tub in the master bath, and a balcony.
"The developers [of Heron Harbor] have paid attention to detail," Magill said. "The assumption is that when somebody is going to spend that kind of money for that kind of view, they want to make sure that the detail level in each residence matches what they have invested in the view."
Beyond the condo community's numerous amenities, Magill said residents will also enjoy the small-town ambience of Havre de Grace, a town that he calls "Annapolis on a smaller scale but without the crowds."
