Potomac Estate Offers A Bucolic Refuge from Bustling Washington D.C.

The local public schools are among the best in the country. The properties are large, regal and well maintained with massive lawns and faultless landscaping. New development is low density and cradled in lots of open space. Surrounded by nature, you would never guess that you are a scant 15 miles northwest of one of the most distinguished and historic cities in the world: Washington D.C.
