Rising on the banks of Cambridge Creek, from the Choptank river in the city of Cambridge on Maryland’s Eastern shore, is Sturbridge Homes latest condominium community waterside. ADW was commissioned by a repeat client/developer, who purchased a dilapidated boat repair facility on the creek. ADW not knowing Cambridge’s regulations as intimately, immersed themselves in the city’s “waterfront promenade” districts requirements, and local architecture.

Five luxury waterfront garage townhomes and 28 luxury condominiums over a secured parking garage and 31 boat slips were proposed and allowed by right. ADW designed the two buildings drawing vernacular details from the city’s rich architectures heritage. The design won unanimous approval, and community support, which is quit rare in Cambridge.

The luxury townhouses sited just a few steps from the deepwater slip marina and Cambridge Creek, are raised above flood plain and equipped with “blow out” foundation blocks. The five townhouses features three story verandahs with dramatic views up and down the creek. With three thousand square ADW designed luxurious accommodations.

The first level houses a two car garage, private brick entry porch and colonnade entry hall. Over looking the water a party room with three sliding French doors open up to the lower porch.

The second floor comprises two bedrooms and bath will hall powder room and kitchen, family room open combination with island and French doors. The breakfast room is “pushed out” on to the porch to afford better views of the creek. The second level porch features a two sided fireplace, shared with the family room. The third level is designed with a private study off the three story staircase and the owner’s stunning suite.

"Due to ADW's skillful application of this area's vernacular architecture, the city of Cambridge unanimously approved our development proposal."
