If you've dreamed of living on the Chesapeake Bay, you're in luck with Four Seasons at Kent Island.

Active adults who want to live by the Chesapeake Bay have a new option starting this December. Builder K. Hovnanian announced plans to build Four Seasons at Kent Island, a 55+ community on the scenic island on the bay. A grand opening event, where active adults can tour four home models, will be held on December 8 and 9 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Active adults will love the proximity to the water, recreation spaces, and urban areas in Maryland. And when completed, the community will have plenty of on-site amenities for residents.

The 162-home community will include single-family and condo homes in 12 different models. The house models range in size from 1,600 to 3,400 square feet, great for a wide range of budgets. The builder also offers luxury interiors, like hardwood floors throughout the home, stainless steel GE appliances and granite countertops in the kitchen, spa-like baths and tile floors in the bathroom, and open design that lets homeowners enjoy the picturesque setting of the community. The community currently has four models to show potential homeowners.

Upon completion, active adult residents will enjoy an expansive clubhouse to meet other residents and stay fit. Within the 28,000 square-foot building, residents can work out in the fitness center, swim in the indoor pool, get together with friends and residents in the meeting spaces. Outside will feature a large resort-style pool, pickleball and tennis courts, and a large patio.

One of the highlights of Four Season at Kent Island is the location. The community sits on the north side of the island near the Chester River. Residents can launch a canoe or kayak into the river and enjoy the serene beauty of this part of the bay.

Just across the river is the Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge, an unparalleled spot on the bay for birdwatching. Bike paths offer residents the opportunity to explore beaches, parks, and natural areas on the island. The Eastern Shore boasts other outdoor opportunities like the trails and waterways at the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge and state parks and forests. The beaches of Maryland and Delaware are just a few hours east of Kent Island.

On the west side of the island just across the Bay Bridge, Annapolis offers historic charm, combined with great restaurants and live music. Baltimore and Washington, D.C., with their three airports and city amenities, are within an hour drive. But residents don’t need to leave the island for great places to dine or have fun. Restaurants sitting right on the water offer up fresh seafood from the Chesapeake Bay watermen. The outlets in Queenstown include premium brands at discounted prices.

Four Seasons at Kent Island is poised to be a popular community, and active adults interested in purchasing a home should act fast as construction begins.
