Welcome to Kentlands/Lakelands
The quant, welcoming embodiment of American charm
Just a stone’s throw north of the Potomac River, Kentlands and Lakelands are the picturesque embodiment of neo-classical architecture. Stately single family, townhomes and condominiums line peaceful streets with endearing white picket fences, protected beneath a canopy of green treetops. The location, just removed from the edges of Washington, DC, allows residents easy access to a number of parks, outdoor recreation opportunities, and historic sites. The many modern conveniences of urban life are not to be missed though; Washington, DC is just twenty miles south.
The community was designed as a new urban-style development, with an emphasis on walkability and preservation of the natural environment. A lively, central town square is bustling and welcoming, making this quaint neighborhood the embodiment of American charm.
