The Plyers Mill Estates is a well-maintained townhouse community in Silver Spring, MD. Its 'old' section (also referred to as Plyers Mill Crossing) was built in 1980 and features traditional 2 story town homes with a finished basement and small fenced-in yard. The new section was built in 2004 - the townhouses are of the 3-levels-up style with no basement but a double-garage and den on the ground floor.
The Plyers Mill Estates have a HOA (Homeowners Association) with a monthly fee ranging from $125 to about $150 (as of May 2012) which includes a community pool (for the Plyers Mill Crossing community), common ground maintenance, snow and trash removal.
The community appeals to home buyers and renters because of its well-maintained appearance and proximity to public transportation, shopping, restaurants and parks. It's a short commute to Holy Cross Hospital, the FDA and Downtown Silver Spring.
