Living in Kentlands

Officially empty-nesters, my parents decided to downsize and move to the Kentlands in Maryland this spring. They were looking for a place small enough for two, but roomy enough for family and friends to visit and perhaps for a recent college graduate, like me, to crash. Not only did they find the perfect condo, but the perfect neighborhood.

The Kentlands is a neo-traditional community in Gaithersburg, meaning the whole neighborhood is walk-able or bike-able and contains a variety of housing, shops and restaurants. Our new picket-fenced neighborhood is scenic and surrounded by lakes. The commercial business just a few steps away makes the Gaithersburg’s Kentlands neighborhood the complete package.

Probably our favorite part about living in the Kentlands is how it is pedestrian friendly. We are more of an active family (the kind that parks farther away just to get a few more steps in for the day) and taking a walk to dinner, the movies or Whole Foods, allows us to get those extra steps before the day’s end. Living here is like having a bunch of neighbors who can do everything they need without having to drive there. We have dozens of restaurants with all types of cuisines, two grocery stores, a movie theater, retail stores, salons, even a few doctors and everything in between.

My mom has even started to take advantage of meeting other neighbors through Kentlands businesses. A few months ago she joined the Kentlands Fleet Feet beginner’s running club to stay active and introduce herself to others in our area.

Although I probably will relocate away from Maryland and the Kentlands when I am able to move out of my parents house, I will definitely miss this place. What attracts me the most to a community like the Kentlands is the convenience factor. Aside from all there is to offer within the neighborhood’s perimeter, it is just less than a five minute drive from I-270, Lakeforest Mall is around the corner and it is an intersection between Gaithersburg and North Potomac. The Kentlands is a centrally located community where it’s difficult to get bored.
