More About Potomac Condos and Townhouses, montgomery county, MD

One thing is certain about Potomac, Maryland it is a very large, unincorporated place covering nearly 27 square miles. Rich in history, the region dates back to a massive land grant bestowed upon Edward Offutt, one of the early English settlers, in 1714. Known as Offutt s Crossroads, the nascent community was little more than a few humble abodes and a tavern for the next century. Rural farms and ranches slowly filtered in and by 1881, the area had been renamed Potomac, inspired quite obviously by the mighty river. The Great Depression caused farmers to offload land on the cheap, just as Washingtonian equestrians were venturing north seeking new pastures for their weekend retreats. So began a new chapter of development, leading ultimately to the modern era and the Potomac that we know today.
The spread out, rural nature of Potomac has always leant itself to oversized property lots and big houses. It s a place with verdant meadows, thick stands of trees, babbling brooks, and of course the river and its stretches of rapids and falls. There are still a number of lovely older homes, and landmarks like the original Great Falls Tavern, located along the C&O Canal towpath and dating to around 1830. But much of the region has changed with the times, including a propensity for huge new construction trophy homes.

Part of the evolution in this land of country clubs and affluence includes the development of condominiums and townhouses. For those who want to live in trendy urban areas with tons of shopping and dining, Bethesda and next-door Washington, DC remain obvious choices. But Potomac presents a different kind of charm. Yes, there are shops, restaurants, and other niceties. But condo and townhouse residents can also enjoy more space, more nature, and still be relatively close to the action.
