GAITHERSBURG/GERMANTOWN Real Estate Analysis

GERMANTOWN

Because of its location along I-270, Germantown is one of the county’s fastest growing communities, with an extensive number of new homes, communities, schools and commercial centers. Known for the administration complex for the US Department of Energy and headquarters for its Office of Biological and Environmental Research, it’s a well-known suburb full of entertainment, like the BlackRock Center for the Arts, and the Maryland SoccerPlex complex, and Butler’s Orchard.

GAITHERSBURG

Gaithersburg is located in the heart of Montgomery County and is home to many high-tech headquarters. Established in 1878, Gaithersburg has grown from an agrarian community to an award-winning neo-traditional urban city. It’s also home to the RIO Washingtonian Center, which is the premier shopping and dining destination in Gaithersburg.

KENSINGTON

Kensington, another historic community listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was founded in 1890. The town, near the Connecticut Avenue beltway exit, is known for its elaborate Victorian homes and antique row commercial area. Kensington also plays host to the Washington, DC, Temple Visitor’s Center, where you can admire the castle-like temple and learn more about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

LAYTONSVILLE

Laytonsville was originally known as Cracklintown. This name originated from the popular cracklin bread, which was baked in the locale. This recipe, essentially a bacon corn bread, also lent the entire area the name of Cracklin District. Laytonsville was incorporated in 1892.

WASHINGTON GROVE

Originally a Methodist meeting ground founded in 1872 on a 200-acre tract of land, summer camp followers eventually constructed year-round homes. You can still walk the tree-lined streets of “The Grove” and see the original summer cottages in their idyllic settings.

MONTGOMERY VILLAGE

Montgomery Village was created in 1962 by Kettler Brothers, Inc. The vision for a planned community in Gaithersburg is credited to architect Charles Kettler, who incorporated Kettler Brothers with his brothers Milton and Clarence in 1952.
