St. Charles is the best-selling new home community in Southern Maryland and is considered one of the most successful master planned communities in the Country. St. Charles is just 11 miles south of the Capital Beltway and is known for its diverse and abundant neighborhoods, lively retail centers, recreational opportunities and excellent schools. Over the past 41 years, St. Charles has invested generously to ensure economic success for the community including the donation of two school sites totaling over 130 acres, miles of infrastructure, the rebuilding and expansion of key roads and payments of approximately $30 million in new school construction excise taxes. In 2014, the new, state-of-the-art St. Charles High School will open, ensuring that our local schools have in excess of 1,000 school seats of what is needed for this 6,100-acre community. Over the past year, St. Charles achieved record-level sales as buyers and renters recognized the advantages of a mixed-use community with unique features such as the Regency Furniture Stadium and the new West Waldorf library.
In the past two years, St. Charles was featured in The Washington Post (Lower Prices Draw More Buyers, Renters to St. Charles) and was profiled alongside the Washington area’s top master planned communities in The Washington Times (Master-Planned Towns, Age 50, Innovative Still). Named by CNN’s Money Magazine as one of the top twenty small cities to live in America, St. Charles appeals to all ages and lifestyles and was featured in 2011 in The Washington Post’s “Where We Live” section and named by U.S. News and World Report as one of the nation’s top bargains for places to retire.
