Relatively equidistant from Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Annapolis, the location is exceedingly convenient for those traveling throughout the central Maryland area.
The properties are a short distance from Bowie State University, in addition to a number of other major employers. A number of parks and recreation facilities are nearby, including the Patuxent Research Refuge, Sandy Hill Community Park, Huntington North Recreation Area and a collection of trails around Cash Lake. According to the Prince George’s County School Finder, nearby schools are Rockledge Elementary, Samuel Ogle Middle and Bowie High.
The auction provides an opportunity to buy one or both properties and renovate them to taste. One of the buildings has been previously used as a mosque. And, there is some subdivision potential based on the zoning and number of platted lots that the properties sit on. Starting bids are $90,000 apiece, and $180,000 for the entirety.
