On the road traveling past the Prince Frederick campus of the College of Southern Maryland, behind some forested fields is a developing community called College Station. Located off Route 231 in Prince Frederick, the neighborhood will have 150 homes and three recreational areas upon completion.
College Station is being developed by two builders, Kaine and Marrick. The first house was built in 2008. The homes’ style of architecture includes Craftsman, Prairie and two-story colonials. Home exteriors could be stone or brick and often include front porches. The lots range from .75 up to 1.5 acres with most averaging about one acre.
The community is still under development with three ranges of square footage plans available. According to available materials, the first range is 3,000 square feet and below with styles ranging in price from $404,480 to $454,280. The mid-size range is from 3,300 square feet to 3,600 square feet with pricing ranging from $465,970 to $484,970. The larger homes are above 3,600 square feet for $477,750 to a 4,920 square feet plan for $560,110. The development has a model which is open seven days a week and a design center sits across the street. Currently 30 lots are still available for sale.
Amenities, Standout Features, & Quirks:
When completed, the four-phase development will have three recreational areas, two with a playground and one with a sports field and half basketball court. The neighborhood also has walking paths.
The four round-a-bouts are a dominate feature in throughout the neighborhood.
According to the sales office, the community seems to have a high percentage of military families and lots of children. It also has community Home Owners Association. Another nice feature is that many of the homes backup to open space or woods, most of which will not be built upon in the future.
College Station is within minutes of an indoor pool at the Edward T. Hall Aquatic Center. Tennis, basketball, and playing fields are at Hallowing Point Park and trails at Battle Creek/Cypress Swamp County Sanctuary or the American Chestnut Land Trust.
Residents can take advantage of its proximity to the campus of CSM for the concert series, lectures, job fairs, course offerings and more.
Residents can access all of Prince Frederick’s shopping opportunities, restaurants, the county hospital, local gyms, movie theater, and other business attractions.
Although Barstow Elementary is within walking distance, children have to take the bus (as do all residents of the county). The older students attend Calvert Middle and Calvert High schools if they use public education. Private education, which is nearby includes Calverton and Tidewater School. And of course, students young and old can take advantage of community and college courses at the Prince Frederick College of Southern Maryland.
