Clarksburg, Maryland Homes

Clarksburg is a beautiful family-friendly community hidden in the northern end of Montgomery County. Residents of the area enjoy the same neighborhood amenities that most DC metropolitan areas have, but Clarksburg is unique in having plenty of parklands set aside for the dual stream valleys of Ten Mile Creek and Little Seneca Creek. This dedication to nature gives the city a unique flavor that most communities along I-270 lack.

If you want to live within easy driving distance of DC yet want to still enjoy the neighborhood feeling of a small town, then the place to live is definitely Clarksburg, MD. Not only does the area have wonderful schools and parkland, but it also has a thriving Town Center that encourages foot traffic and greatly complements life in the Washington Metropolitan area.

The Clarksburg Master Plan (which governs the growth of the city) directly targets Clarksburg to become the single most northern population center along the I-270 corridor. Because of this, development within city limits is entirely focused on creating a residential community of public transportation surrounded by open space.

This is what makes the Clarksburg community such an attractive place to live; the entire area is dedicated to becoming a better place for all its residents over time.

The Real Estate Market has become one of the fastest growing areas in Montgomery County Maryland

 Some custom builders build on land they own which is known as a spec home – short for speculative. They will build unique houses to show their abilities as a builder...

Now, Let's Take a Ride on a Typical Clarksburg Neighborhood...shall we?..climb aboard!

 

Transportation & Commuting Times For Clarksburg Residents 

 Lots of neighbors who live in Clarksburg commute to DC.

BUS 75 RideOn

Transit Center 75 is the bus line for Clarksburg. You can go directly to the Metro or simply a short trip away to Milestone Shopping Center or directly to Clarksburg Premium Outlets.

Check the latest scheduling changes for Route 75 by going here

 Marc Train

MARC Train Service is a commuter rail system whose service areas include a path directly to the Union Station in Washington DC 

The MARC Train Service operates Monday through Friday with limited weekend service. For schedules, an interactive map and commuting times, visit the Marc Train official website here

I-270

If you must use your car to travel to Washington DC -  During high traffic times, you'll be in the road upwards of one hour and sometimes more.

If the Bethesda, Rockville is your destination, during high traffic times, you'll be on the road upwards of 1/2 hour or more.

I have family that lives in Virginia/Arlington area...and if I time it just right, I can travel there in less than 40 minutes...as the years passed we became experts in knowing when to use I-270  ..and when we should avoid it!

Route 355

If I-270 is a parking lot because of an accident, the good news is that you have an alternative route, 355 -- the bads news is that everybody else knows about Route 355 and you will encounter traffic there as well.  

Route 355 (MD 355) runs parallel to I-270 towards Washington DC. 

Both I-270 and Route 355 are less than 5 minutes away from all Clarksburg neighborhoods 

Shopping for Clarksburg Residents

Judging by the shopping experiences & habits coming from my wife and 15-year-old daughter...I say it is the Clarksburg Premium Outlets. Just less than 5 minutes away and you have access to over 100 designer stores from Nike, Under Armour to Polo, Hugo Boss, and Kay Jewelers. From Michael Kors, Puma and Rack Room Shoes to Skechers, Tommy Hilfiger, and  UGG. See more information about The Clarksburg Premium Outlets here*

Grocery Shopping

The most convenient store for all Clarksburg residents is Harris Teeter, located right in the middle of Clarksburg Village.

When you need more choices of foods or restaurants,  within a 10-minute drive and you are in Milestone Shopping Center
