Directly across from the Park and Ride on Route 2 in Sunderland is Federal Oaks, a secluded upscale community featuring three to eight acre-size lots, some having streams running through them and others ready for horses.
Federal Oaks is a Builtrite Home Developers community, a builder with 30 years and over 1,400 homes worth of experience. The 17 different homes styles offered in this community start at 2,800 square feet and $611,000 and go up to 4,400 square feet with a base price of $837,100.
The exterior architecture include shingles on the roofs, fronts made of a mixture of brick, stone, and/or panel, front porches or columned porticos. All home styles are two-story, with pyramid roofs and accents, giving the homes texture and depth.
Standard features for the homes include gas fireplaces, nine foot ceilings on the first floor, gourmet kitchens, basement rough-ins, super master baths, walk-out basements, professional landscaping packages, and more.
Some homes are easily seen from the roads while others are hidden down long driveways behind trees. Eight lots are available and range in size between three and eight acres. Upon completed build out, Federal Oaks will have 43 homes.
Amenities, Standout Features, & Quirks:
Although located off Route 2 near the intersection of Route 4 in Calvert, the drive through the neighborhood is quiet and serene. Inside the neighborhood entrance is a picnic table under a beautiful stone shelter and surrounded by brush and trees. The scene from the main road includes lush, grassy knolls transitioning into dense woods adding to the feeling that this is a community of estates. Tasteful small signs dot the road highlighting neighborhood features such as running streams through some lots, “very private” flag lots, wooded lots and lots suitable for horses.
While the neighborhood doesn’t have its own amenities, it is centrally located between Dunkirk, Chesapeake/North Beach, and Prince Frederick. The Fairview branch of the Calvert Public Library is within five minutes along with a local gym and winery (Friday’s Creek). Kings Landing Park and Pool are a 15 minute drive south. Dunkirk with all its grocery shopping, restaurants, and county park with sports fields and skateboard ramps are within six minutes drive north. Chesapeake Beach and North Beach, again with restaurants, shopping and walking trails is 11 minutes northwest.
For those residents willing to leave the county for shopping and entertainment, downtown D.C. is within an hour’s drive, and Annapolis is within 40 minutes.
The children in Federal Oaks will attend Sunderland Elementary, Windy Hill Middle, and Northern High School, if they attend the county’s public schools. Private schools close by include Tidewater School in Huntingtown. Cardinal Hickey Academy is in Owings and Calverton School is in Huntingtown.
