I'm sure AeroGuy will answer, but Maple Lawn has the density of a very urban area, and very high prices. The density seems way out of place in Fulton, much of which is still rural with dairy farms. I don't like Maple Lawn either.

AeroGuy mentioned that his lot is 100 yards away from the nearest neighbor. The open space is why people move to the country.

But what is your reason to hate Maple Lawn? Not being funny, just curious
I absolutely detest houses that are 10 feet apart. Would never in a million years accept a one car garage detached from my house and separated by 30 square feet of yard and a common sidewalk. Despise mandatory street parking because of a lack of a true driveway causing essentially every neighborhood street to be a one way street. I get nauseated at the thought of sitting on my back deck and literally having a normal conversation with the neighbor 3 houses down with no problem.

Essentially, I hate everything about a master planned community like Maple Lawn. I like space. Lots of space. And no neighbors within earshot. Maple Lawn is for those who like to say they live in a single family home with no yard or privacy to go with it.

That is how most subdivisions are really. Maple Lawn and Emerson in Laurel, Fairwood and Oak Creek in Bowie, and Beechtree in Upper Marlboro.

Somehow they are selling, with the price they want for these homes. from 400K to as much as 600K. With the urban feel in a suburban setting.

Thanks for describing these subdivisions. Makes it easy to cross those off my looong list!
