Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® MD594797

The Fairland Acres subdivision in 20905 Silver Spring, MD is a sought after community off Briggs Chaney Rd and Peach Orchard Dr. The subdivision includes an older section - mostly ramblers and ranchers on generously sized lots and built between the 1950s and 70s - and a newer section with Colonial-style homes built in the early-to-mid 1980s which are part of a HOA (home owner's association).

Fairland Acres in 20905 Silver Spring, MD

Fairland Acres is in a quiet yet convenient location. It is nestled within Paint Branch Park and within close proximity to a number of neighborhood parks - such as the Maydale Conservation Park - but it's also just minutes away from Route 29 and MD-200/ICC.

Fairland Acres falls within the Cloverly Elementary School District, which ranks consistently high on greatschools.org, Briggs Chaney Middle School and the Northeast Area High School Consortium.

The 1980s section of Fairland Acres includes the homes on Holly Spring, Laurelwood, Kaywood and Locustwood. These are spacious Colonials which feature 2-story foyers with cathedral ceilings, formal living & dining rooms, a fireplace, 2-car garage and landscaped yard. The living areas vary between 2,300 and 3,000 square feet above grade (plus any additional finished space in the basement) and lot sizes are around 0.25 of an acre.

The Fairland Acres HOA fee currently runs about $220 annually and includes management and trash removal charges. Home prices are in the mid-400s to mid-500s - and higher for the older homes of the subdivision due to the considerably larger lot sizes.

Hi Tammy, thank you!

Hi John, yes .. if one likes a bigger lot and the charm of a home from the 50s and 60s, Fairland Acres has it. And if one prefers a spacious Colonial and the management of a HOA, Fairland Acres has that, too.
