CONTRACT | Small Church & Hall | Solomons Island Rd
Acreage: ±0.99 acre
Address: 2764 Solomons Island Rd
County: Anne Arundel County
Located near the South River, the former Edgewater United Methodist Church, built in 1914, comprises two land parcels, totaling nearly an acre. The upper floor of the brick building offers a sanctuary with seating for approximately 90. The ground-floor level is the hall, kitchen, and single restroom. There is no interior stairway or connection between the two floors. Both floors are served by central A/C and fuel-oil-fired forced-air heat. Although there are two paved parking pads that function as the entrance and exit points from the property, the circular parking/driving loop is not paved or laid with gravel. When the church was in use, the former congregation would drive and park on the grass, and also use the neighboring lot (they had an agreement with the property owner). The rear of the property -- roughly a third of an acre -- has been landscaped to provide a meditation garden, flanked by two stately magnolia trees. The property is on well and septic. Zoning is R1, which is residential and supports very few commercial uses. For a buyer who would like to convert the existing commercial use designation to a residential use, please consult Anne Arundel Planning and Zoning to understand the process.
Most chattels convey in the sale, with the exception of some religious items. The seller has limited knowledge of the property, and, consequently, will be selling as-is, but welcomes buyers to undertake a full inspection. It is understood that the ground level of the building had previously suffered water damage twice (although there was no water penetration with Hurricane Ida on September 3, 2021). The buyer will be responsible for paying all closing costs (including transfer, recordation, deed preparation, and all other fees). The buyer must use the seller's closing agent. There is no lease option. Seller financing may be available for a well-qualified buyer; non-negotiable terms include 33% down, 6% interest, amortized over 20 years, five-year balloon.
