Boyds, known as the ‘Home in the Country’, was once a farm community, but the rural nature has been overtaken by development in the last ten years. The boundaries of Boyds, which is unincorporated, seep into the Germantown and Clarksburg area, but it is served by zip code 20841.

My family moved there in 2003 when the Vistas at Woodcliffe Park neighborhood was near completion. We loved the location – close to the retail centers of Germantown, but also close to Black Hill Park and Little Seneca Lake.

The Vistas neighborhood (legal name – Kings Crossing) has 852 single family homes and the 55 plus community of Kings Overlook condos. This neighborhood featured the builders Washington Homes, Richmond American, Craftmark, Ryan, Ryland, Mid Atlantic and NV Homes.

Amenities include an outstanding pool and clubhouse (shared with other Woodcliffe neighborhoods), Montgomery County’s Kings Crossing Local Park and other tot lots and bike trails. We had a short walk from our home to the wooded trails going into Little Seneca Stream Park. These trails are the best – you can see monarch butterflies in the spring and other wildlife all year long.

Nearby new construction includes Woodcliffe Park, (legal name – Hoyles Mill Village) bounded by Schaeffer and Richter Farm Roads, which was built by Centex, Richmond American and Ryland. Its sister community, Estates at Woodcliffe Park, was built by Toll Brothers. There are 873 homes in these neighborhoods, including 64 townhomes.

Being near Richter Farm Road and Route 118 (Germantown Road) made commuting pretty easy, plus we loved being close to the Germantown Soccer Plex and Indoor Swim Center which also has a great playground and splash park there.

Other new home developments in Boyds include the 500 home Hurley Ridge (legal name Clarksburg Heights) and Summerfield Crossing on Old Baltimore Road, a small community of 250 homes built by Pulte.

Visit our sister website for more information on Boyds home values.

The children in these two areas go to Clarksburg schools, while the Richter Farm Road areas go to Germantown schools, there are no public schools in Boyds.

There is an older section of Boyds with lovely Victorian homes and the MARC train station that suggest the Civil War era in which Boyds was founded. The historic landmark Boyds Negro School has been restored by the Boyds Historical Society and is open to the public. A little known fact – the world famous stuffed animal maker Boyds Bears actually did start in Boyds in an antique store.
