Fair Hill Farm is a town home community in Olney located off Georgia Avenue and Laytonsville Road (MD Rt. 108), in the 20832 zip code. There is a homeowners association, with fees that cover amenities such as the pool, clubhouse, tennis courts, playgrounds and athletic playing fields, all within walking distance. Also included is common area maintenance, as well as trash removal.
We have lived here almost 10 years and we really enjoy walking in the neighborhood, taking in the views and surroundings of horses grazing in the field and ducks swimming in a nearby pond.
Living in the Olney area offers a variety conveniences, such as the newly renovated Village Center (where there is also a weekly farmers market during the season), the Olney Public Library, The Olney Swim Center, The Longwood Community Center and a wide variety of cuisine choices for dining out. Also nearby are several gyms, fitness facilities and Montgomery General Hospital. We have enjoyed going to see plays and concerts at the nearby Olney Theatre. For a short drive into Silver Spring is Brookside Gardens, where you can walk and enjoy the beauty of the 50 acres of public display gardens.
The shopping in Olney is very convenient and covers most all of your everyday needs for food, clothing, paint, home goods, personal services, banking, etc.
One of the things we like most about our community is that is has a “small town” feeling, a friendly and diverse community, and a quiet getaway from the hectic Washington, DC pace. At the same time, you have ready access to downtown, especially with the Metro at either Glenmont or Twinbrook Parkway, and the new ICC/Route 200 connector. We like the fact that Olney is well situated between both Washington and Baltimore, and also convenient to Columbia.
The schools that serve the children of the Fair Hill Farm community are Brooke Grove Elementary, Farquhar Middle and Sherwood High Schools.
As you can see from all of the above, the Fair Hill Farm community in Olney is a great place to call home!
