Southern Maryland

Nestled between the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay, Southern Maryland real estate is only a short drive from major cities like Washington, D.C. and Baltimore. As a result, the region boasts an appealing blend of rural history, maritime culture, and big city amenities. Southern Maryland is made up of the tri-county area of Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary’s, although two additional counties, Anne Arundel and Prince George’s, can also be considered part of the region. The counties are divided by the Patuxent River, a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay, with St. Mary’s, Charles, and Prince George’s Counties on the west and Calvert and Anne Arundel Counties on the east.

Southern Maryland real estate in Calvert County, one of Maryland’s smallest, has recently experienced a surge in popularity among busy commuters attracted to its location less than 50 miles from Washington, D.C. However, while communities like Prince Frederick, the county seat, and Dunkirk have experienced an increase in residential development, most of the county has managed to retain its rural charm. Nowhere is this more apparent than on Solomons Island, a small harbor village located at the mouth of the Patuxent River. Just over a mile long, this quaint resort town offers plenty of attractions, including the Solomons Riverwalk, the Calvert Marine Museum, and the historic J.C. Lore & Sons Oyster House.

Like Calvert County, Southern Maryland real estate in Charles County and St. Mary’s County have also grown in popularity over the past few years. Waldorf, in Charles County, is home to St. Charles, a 10,000-acre planned community anchored by the St. Charles Town Center, a 160-acre retail hub. The College of Southern Maryland, a community college serving the tri-county area, is located in nearby La Plata, the county seat of Charles County. Lexington Park and Charlotte Hall, in St. Mary’s County, have recently welcomed a number of high-tech and aerospace jobs. The Patuxent Naval Air Station alone supports over 17,000 people, making it an economic mainstay of the area.

North of the tri-county area is Anne Arundel County. The county, which is home to Baltimore-Washington International Airport, is situated on the Chesapeake Bay and offers 500 miles of shoreline as well as charming waterfront communities like Deale. Its county seat, Annapolis, is also the capital of Maryland. Known as “America’s Sailing Capital,” Annapolis is a port city located on the Severn River, a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. St. John’s College, the nation’s third-oldest college, and the U.S. Naval Academy can be found in Annapolis, which is replete with colonial-era buildings.

To the west of Anne Arundel County and abutting Washington, D.C. is Prince George’s County. The county’s communities, like Mitchellville and Camp Springs, are accessible by the green, orange, and blue lines of the Metro and are popular among people buying Southern Maryland real estate. Maryland’s flagship university, the University of Maryland, College Park, is also located in Prince George’s County.
