King Farm in Rockville -Walk to Metro, Restaurants, Shops

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital Properties DC AB15253

It is hard for me to believe that the community that we have come to know as King Farm in Rockville just inside the Sam Eig Highway and the new Intercounty Connector has already existed for more than 15 years no.  I remember showing my daughter (who is 19) a large dairy farm that was King Farm when she was little and promising her that this very lovely piece of agriculture could not last much longer.  King Farm dated back 70 years, ever since W. Lawton King, in 1925, purchased a piece of farmland owned by the Graff family. When King combined it with three adjacent farms into a larger farm, he called it the Irvington Farm. Just when the farm began to be called the "King Farm" is lost to history.   Sure enough, the farm and its brown and white dairy cows were gone just before 2000, replaced with an equally wonderful community of townhouses, single family homes, rentals, and condos - high rise and garden style.  There are lots of restaurants with a variety of tyles and price ranges, some shops like a yarn store, banks, and grocery stores - just about everything you need to get through a day.  

If a collection of townhomes, single families, and condos with parks and ball fields is what you are looking for then click right here!  I love showing people my home town! If you are moving to DC, Maryland, or Virginia, be sure to give the Lise Howe Group of Keller Williams a call at 240-401-5577 or 301-251-1221

Lise, I love King Farm!  It's like they took a little bit of Cleveland Park, moved it to Rockville and pulled it off.

It is a great location and in walking distance from your office. I can'r believe it's been 15 years already.
