Bay Bridge Cove to break ground Satur­day

Record Observer - - Real Estate -

STEVENSVILLE — Ground will be bro­ken Satur­day, Sept. 17, in Stevensville for a se­nior hous­ing de­vel­op­ment more than a decade in the mak­ing. McKee Builders in­vites the pub­lic to join them as they cel­e­brate with a cer­e­mony and food truck fes­ti­val from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 425 Romancoke road. Bay Bridge Cove, for­merly The Clois­ters, will be a club­house com­mu­nity of 273 villa homes for res­i­dents 55 and older.

Frank McKee Sr. of McKee Builders will break ground, of­fi­cially sig­nal­ing the op­por­tu­nity for prospec­tive home­own­ers to re­serve their home­sites.

Frank McKee Jr. said the com­pany has had in­ter­est from around 200 peo­ple, but Satur­day will be the first op­por­tu­nity for fu­ture res­i­dents to ac­tu­ally pick their site and put down a de­posit. Fol­low­ing the cer­e­mony, the pub­lic is in­vited to enjoy a cel­e­bra­tion at the com­mu­nity with live mu­sic and Shelly’s Slid­ers food truck. There will be a tent and pic­nic ta­bles, and the event will be held rain or shine.

“This is a mile­stone mo­ment for us,” said McKee Jr. “We’re ex­cited to start build­ing, and look for­ward to cre­at­ing the vi­brant com­mu­nity that we’ve en­vi­sioned for so long.”

Life­style will be at the core of Bay Bridge Cove, and plans in­clude a club­house, out­door pool, bocce court, fit­ness cen­ter, bil­liards and card rooms and more. Like other McKee com­mu­ni­ties, the club­house serves as the hub, and there will be clubs and ac­tiv­i­ties, so­cial events and trips for home­own­ers.

Res­i­dents won’t have to worry about ex­te­rior main­te­nance; chores from leaf rak­ing to mow­ing and snow shov­el­ing are done by the com­mu­nity. Homes will fea­ture two bed­rooms and two baths, and will be sin­gle level, though home­buy­ers may choose to add a loft and ad­di­tions off the back. Vil­las come in dou­bles and triples, and each res­i­dence is some­what cus­tom.

Bay Bridge Cove is lo­cated on the south side of Route 8, across from the Bay Bridge Air­port. Home­own­ers will have easy ac­cess to the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Bridge, and are just 20 min­utes from An­napo­lis, and a short drive to Eas­ton, St. Michaels and Ch­ester­town, and 50 min­utes to ei­ther Bal­ti­more or Wash­ing­ton, D.C. The com­mu­nity is lo­cated just four min­utes from area beaches, in­clud­ing a pub­lic beach where res­i­dents may take their dogs. Other area ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude fish­ing and sail­ing out of the Kent Is­land mari­nas, bik­ing or walk­ing, and shop­ping at the Queen­stown Out­lets.

Homes start in the low $300’s. To sign up for the VIP list to re­ceive up­dates and more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.bay­bridge cove.com.

The Bay Bridge Cove In­for­ma­tion Cen­ter is lo­cated at 425 Romancoke Road, Stevensville. Ap­point­ments are avail­able by call­ing Ed Hack­ett at 410-849-6693.
