Epping Forest is a desirable community to live in in the Annapolis area. They have their own website where community members can get a wealth of information. Here's the description of the neighborhood from the website:
Epping Forest is a private waterfront community located just outside of downtown Annapolis, MD on the Severn River which feeds into the Chesapeake Bay. The community has a clubhouse, beach area, marina and tennis courts available to all residents and their guests. The gatehouse was once manned at different times to control access to the Epping Forest. Now an automatic gate controls access.
Epping is a place of real community and tranquility amidst a metropolitan area. Baltimore and Washington, DC are a short distance away for commuters. An international airport (BWI) is only 20 minutes away. And yet when you arrive in the neighborhood you couldn't feel further away. Thanks to so many trees in the Forest, the temperature during summer can be as much as 10 degrees cooler as compared to the outside of the neighborhood! In an article printed on August 6, 1984, the Capital described Epping Forest as a "Magical Severn community where ... roads wind around large trees and steep hills. No bulldozers have come here to flatten out the earth for easy access. Vines cling to trees and make some of the narrow thoughfares look like green tubes sloping down to the Severn River. Look closely at the encroaching greenery and you almost expect to see a gnome or two scamper across the roads".
Epping Forest is a close knit community where many of the neighbors know each other. In the summertime neighbors tend to spend alot of time at the Beach/Clubhouse area to swim, eat, drink and have a good time. There are several yearly events (such as the Bull Roast, Oyster Roast, and Labor Day Events) that bring the whole community together. Additionally there are many kids around. It is not unusual to see 20 -30 kids playing on the beach. Many times new neighbors get to be known as someone's mom or dad. Whether, you are young or old - Epping Forest is a great place where the kids can play and the adults can relax.
