Brunswick Crossing, a dynamic new planned community in Brunswick, Maryland, and one of the most eagerly anticipated communities in Frederick County, is on schedule to open its Model Park and Visitors Cottage in November 2009.

Brunswick Crossing is situated on 552 acres in the heart of the Potomac River Valley in Brunswick, Maryland, where the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and the Potomac River meet.

The site is currently buzzing with construction activity as the community's first 3 models are near completion and site development and infrastructure work continues throughout the community. Even with all of the activity, it's easy to see what makes this site such a special setting for a new planned community.

"The views don't get much prettier than this," said Jerry Connelly, Senior Vice President of Pleasants Development, Inc., the developer of Brunswick Crossing, as he looked out over Brunswick Crossing and across the Potomac River Valley. "There may be other communities with great homes and amenities, but this setting simply can't be duplicated."

At the heart of Brunswick Crossing is the community's forest conservation area which preserves nearly 100 acres of stream valley woodlands. Views of the valley stretch for miles and the Potomac River is just a stone's throw away. Yet, for prospective homebuyers, this connection to the great outdoors is only one of many reasons Brunswick Crossing is such an appealing place to call home.

Pleasants Development has big plans for the amenities at Brunswick Crossing, starting with the Community Center. Upon its completion, this resort-style amenity will feature a clubhouse with fabulous entertaining spaces indoors and out, a separate pool house with a fitness center, a 25 meter swimming pool with open swim area and slide, kiddie pool, interactive splash zone, tennis courts, sports field, event lawn, outdoor fireplace, playground and more. Homebuyers at Brunswick Crossing will be excited to learn that construction of the Clubhouse is scheduled to begin in 2010.

"Often, the first homeowners in a community have to wait many years before signature amenities go in," said Connelly. " We're taking a much different approach at Brunswick Crossing. We're making significant up front investments so that homeowners will be able to enjoy a beautiful new clubhouse with entertaining spaces, a media room, and an expansive rear patio with stunning views of the valley all to be built in our first stages of development. We're also paving miles of trails and walkways that will meander throughout our protected stream valley woodlands and give our homeowners walking and biking access to downtown Brunswick, the MARC Train, the Potomac River, C&O Canal and the Brunswick Family Campground."

Upon its completion, Brunswick Crossing's network of paved trails and walkways will stretch for over 26 miles and cross approximately 20 bridges, all right within the community.

Another signature amenity, one that will be enjoyed by every resident of Brunswick, is the Marketplace at Brunswick Crossing. Anchored by a new grocery store, the Marketplace at Brunswick Crossing will also feature a variety of shops, restaurants, conveniences and community gathering spaces, all within walking distance of the homes.

Prospective homeowners who appreciate authentic small town charm will feel right at home in historic downtown Brunswick. Much of its architecture dates from the late 1800's and today it's home to a variety of independent shops and restaurants. Downtown is also the social hub of Brunswick, especially during the summer months when it hosts events like Arts in the Park, First Friday, Movies in the Park, and the weekly Brunswick Area Farmers' Market. In the fall, Brunswick hosts an annual event called Railroad Days, which attracts thousands of visitors to celebrate Brunswick's rail town heritage with music, food, and activities for the whole family. This year, Railroad Days is scheduled for Saturday, October 3 and Sunday, October 4.

While the railroad contributed greatly to Brunswick's growth in the late 1890's, today it is the commuter rail that's attracting new residents to Brunswick. Anyone who has ever had to sit through rush hour traffic on I-270 or I-66 will love having access to the Brunswick MARC Train, located just minutes from Brunswick Crossing. It connects commuters to employment centers in Frederick, Germantown, Gaithersburg, Rockville and Washington, DC, and even links up to Metro in Rockville.

For nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts, Brunswick Crossing offers a dream location. The community is just a few minutes away from the Potomac River, which means great fishing, kayaking, canoeing and camping can be enjoyed at a moment's notice. Hugging the river is the C&O Canal towpath. Popular among hikers and bikers of all ages and skill levels, it stretches for over 180 miles, all the way from Cumberland, Maryland to Washington, DC.

In addition to its enviable natural and manmade amenities, Brunswick Crossing boasts another tremendous attraction--affordable homes. Prospective homebuyers will soon see just how far their dollars go when Advantage Homes opens its models in November. Committed to helping save the environment and homebuyers money on their utility bills, Advantage Homes is building Energy Star certified single family homes and neo-traditional homes with detached garages tucked in back.

"We're very fortunate to have Advantage Homes building our very first homes at Brunswick Crossing," said Connelly. "They've earned a great reputation in Frederick County, thanks in part to their continued success at Urbana Highlands. With three Advantage Homes models nearing completion, we're confident that Brunswick Crossing is going to generate a lot of excitement right from the start."

Brunswick Crossing remains on schedule to open its new model homes in November 2009. The community is located in Brunswick, Maryland, about 15 miles from Frederick, Maryland, 20 miles from Leesburg, Virginia, and 45 miles from Washington, DC.
