Newer Annapolis residents and homeowners Tammy and Rob did a good deal of home work prior to having their 5,000-square-foot transitional style residence built on a prized lot along Mill Creek. Their study of location and careful evaluation of what’s important to them now has already provided rewards of the familial and convivial kind in this new city they proudly call home.
ZEROING IN ON A ZIP CODE A native of the state of Maine, Rob says he and Tammy had some reference points as to where they might want to live after retiring. “We love the historic, protected peninsula towns of New England,” notes Rob, who also cited Charleston, South Carolina, as an area they were looking into when they thought of retiring. They also thought they would want their new address to act like a magnet that would draw friends and family to visit since they would initially be strangers there. Recent retirees from busy careers in communications and longtime Westchester County, New York, residents, the couple was intent on finding just the right dwelling within a reasonable distance to both of their grown children; a son and daughter-inlaw living in Arlington, and a daughter in Princeton.
