You'll be looking at Glen Burnie or Pasadena at that price. The commute will be fairly split & you'll get some semblance of surburbia while still feeling in the Baltimore area. Annapolis can't compete with Baltimore; unfortunately Baltimore won't compete with Philly either, but there you have it.

As others suggested, you might want to consider renting first to get a feel for things before locking yourself in with a purchase. Also, you housing budget is pretty tight for the current market. Some of the neighborhoods you could afford are not likely to be places you will want to live long-term. That said, I would err to being closer to Annapolis. Very nice town, quite a bit to do, lovely scenery. I would pick downtown Annapolis over downtown Baltimore. Except on the weekends, it is not that hard to get in and out of Annapolis. Annapolis has very limited street parking, but does have a public garage, though it can fill up on the weekends.

Hard to give advice to this young couple since they don't seem to be on the same wavelength.

Actually downtown Annapolis has 3 public parking garages, the last time I checked.

Is it normal for Annapolis residents to have to rely on public parking garages?

At 350k budget, I think Mt. Washington would be the a good bang for your buck. It's a bit far from Annapolis but easy access to 695.

Not that OP will be coming back to this thread, but Mount Washington is only ideal if you really want to live in Baltimore City without being downtown, and you also really want to live in Mount Washington. It's far from Annapolis that even several times a week would be a pain in the neck. I wouldn't say Mount Washington is handy to 695 either.

OP and his wife are most likely going to end up in a townhouse in AA County. Which makes perfect sense from a logistics perspective.

Speaking of Mt. Washington.. I was out on the Jones Falls Bike Trail and road it up from Woodberry to Mt. Washington. Its probably the nicest bike trail in the City and connects Mt. Washington with Downtown. Even in Woodberry that is a development on Coldspring Lane that provides a nice nexus between the wild and wooded areas of Mt. Washington/Coldspring Newtown and the more urban Woodberry/Hamden/Remington and Station North.. If the Woodberry Development on Coldspring gets fully built out ( a second building is being proposed) it already has come ground floor retail (though currently vacant) It could provide a nice node along an already descent route.

I know we are not a bike centric city per se.. But I could see some dedicated souls commuting from Mt. Wash and points in between to downtown via bike...

In other words, you need to "really want to live in Mount Washington" to justify it when one partner works in Annapolis.

If they "really wanted to live in Baltimore City" and wanted a more pastoral environment than an urban neighborhood, somewhere like Ten Hills would be much more convenient for an Annapolis commuter (and is also handier for 695).

But I suspect OP doesn't "really want to live in Baltimore City" and like most transplants to the region he and his wife will end up in one of the suburbs convenient to their works, which in their case is northern AA county or even Howard County in the Elkridge area.
