THE KENTLANDS PLAN

Based on the best local architectural styles of classic Annapolis, Georgetown, and Old Town Alexandria, the Kentlands has become one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in the Metropolitan D.C. area. The Kentlands was planned to include 5 distinct “neighborhoods,” Old Farm, The Gatehouse, The Lake District, Midtown, and The Hill District, based around 3 centers:the original farm buildings, the church/ school area, and the clubhouse.  The town center is the centralconcept of the neo-traditional community. Shopping, dining, entertainment, recreation, and employment are designed to be within walking distance of the town’s residences. Kentlands town center includes three areas: Kentlands Square, The Boulevard Shops, and Market Square.
