Why We Love Potomac MD Homes

Potomac MD homes are located 15 miles northwest of Washington DC along the Potomac River. Deep lots and rolling hills peppered with horse pastures characterize the landscape. The area’s 46,600+ residents can join one of the many local equestrian-related organizations or take a ride out to the scenic Great Falls National Park.

CNN Magazine recently ranked Potomac MD homes as the 7th “Highest Earning Town” in America, with a median income of $183,258. Some of Maryland’s wealthiest neighborhoods – such as Avenel, Falconhurst, Bradley Farms and Palatine – fall within Potomac real estate, where the median home price is $833,400. The upscale shopping district of Potomac Village houses the most lavish Potomac MD homes. Homebuyers are drawn to the historic neighborhoods, the breathtaking mansions on extraordinary lots, and the history of rising property values.

The owners of Potomac’s million-dollar homes are largely retirees who like the close proximity of Washington DC, but enjoy the picturesque scenery. Professional athletes, CEOs and media personnel appreciate the quick commute to DC as well. Horse riding schools, breeders and stables are common sights near Potomac MD homes and these beautiful animals are very much a part of the local lifestyle. In fact, the local polo club is still thriving.

There are many neighborhoods of Potomac MD homes to choose from. The Falconhurst subdivision offers newer and more lavish homes built in the 1970s and 1980s and one of the most affluent streets in the country – Bentcross Drive – which is home to diplomats, CEOs and star athletes alike. Potomac Falls is one of the first subdivisions put in (dating back to the 1960s), but is unique in that the mansions possess interesting architecture. Avenel is a master planned community developed in the 1980s surrounding a private PGA Tour golf club. Bradley Farms Potomac MD homes are situated in an older neighborhood from the 1940s that is considered to be very exclusive.
