544 W. Woodlynn Road is located in the Martindale subdivision in the Essex area of Baltimore County. Martindale comprises roughly 250 homes straddling S. Marlyn Avenue and was originally developed in the late 1940’s. Neighborhood homes were constructed shortly thereafter, with most being significantly renovated, expanded, or both, over the past 70 years. The location affords excellent proximity to shopping, dining and neighborhood conveniences along both Marlyn Avenue and Eastern Boulevard. Eastern Boulevard also provides proximate access to the Baltimore Beltway (I-695) and MD-702. According to the Baltimore County Public Schools website, nearby schools are Sussex Elementary, Deep Creek Middle and Chesapeake High.
The home itself sits opposite the northwestern branch of Duck Creek, a tributary of Back River and the Chesapeake Bay. The lot is separated from the water by a 10′ County easement and what is believed to be a strip of privately owned marsh. The size and nature of the buffer makes it unlikely anything would be built between the property line and the water. The auction provides an excellent opportunity to buy a waterview home in a convenient and well-established location.
