Hi,

Does anyone know of any communities similar to the town home feel of King Farm that are closer in to DC?

Tuckerman Heights, Tuckerman Station, Grovesnor are closer to DC, have access to the Metro and are between 2 malls (White Flint and Montgomery mall). You are also close to the beltway so you can get out of the city quickly.

I lived at Tuckerman Station.

Are you just interested in more of a small town feel or do you also want new construction? I live in Kensington which is just North of Chevy Chase in Montgomery Co., and it has a nice community atmosphere with lots of families. The Parkwood neighborhood of Kensington, seems to be pretty close-knit, many people belong to the community pool, it has its own moms club, etc. Garrett Park is another small incorporated town next to Kensington with a community feel. You have to pick up mail at the local P.O. and there is a very nice restaurant in the P.O. building as well. Chevy Chase, MD is made up of small incorporated towns and also has a strong sense of community.

It's going to be difficult to find a big new neighborhood community exactly like King Farm downcounty. There just isn't that kind of land available to build on.
