NOTE:  The information contained herein has been obtained from sources deemed reliable and is believed to be accurate.  However, no express or implied warranty is made or may be inferred from any such representation.  Dimensions, square footage and acreage contained herein are more or less.  Prospective purchasers are encouraged to perform their own due diligence, in advance of the auction, regarding the permitted uses of the property.

LOCATION:
Bowleys Quarters is a peninsula located in southeastern Baltimore County, surrounded by the Chesapeake Bay, Seneca Creek, Galloway Creek and Frog Mortar Creek.  According to Wikipedia, "Bowleys Quarters was named for Daniel Bowley, a merchant and sea captain who owned some 2,000 acres around Baltimore in the mid-18th century.  The area later became a game preserve for waterfowl and a place where presidents and others, including Babe Ruth, came to hunt ducks. The area eventually became known as a vacation spot, and many summer homes were built along the water.”

Housing in the community is a mixture of modest bungalows and larger custom waterfront homes.  Bowleys Quarters is only ten minutes from the Baltimore Beltway (I-695), yet is vastly removed from the hustle and bustle of suburban sprawl. The community has nearby restaurants and marinas.  Shopping and public services are a short drive away.

The auction presents an opportunity to purchase one or two waterfront homes in "the Land of Pleasant Living."  Catch crabs and fish from your pier, host a party for dozens of guests, or just lay back and enjoy the peaceful setting and waterfront vistas.
