Hagerstown, Maryland. It may not be the first city that comes to mind for DC or Baltimore commuters, but this gem of a town packs a pretty big punch for the area. Unlike its more expensive suburban counterparts, the city features some of the same amenities you find closer to DC without the expense.
Well known for being home to the popular Hagerstown Premium Outlets, many who aren’t from the region may not realize it is also a cultural hub for fans of the arts or museums. For example, you can catch a performance of the Maryland Symphony at the Maryland Theatre which boasts one of the most beautiful and ornate classic theatres on the eastern seaboard. Or perhaps enjoy the scenery at the Hagerstown City Park, ranked #1 as the most beautiful city park by EscapeHere.com. The kiddos won’t miss out either since the city boasts the local favorite, Discovery Station, a hands-on interactive children’s museum and even a train museum and aviation museum.
Located just 15 minutes from all this action are two of S&A Homes’ most popular new home communities, Cedarbrook and Creekwood. For those seeking an affordable single-family home with an established community feel, perhaps no neighborhood has more to offer than Cedarbrook. With single-family homes starting from the $170’s and a variety of one and two-story floor plans to choose from, residents can own a home with very little money out of pocket and monthly payments that rival nearby rent prices. Creekwood offers larger home sites with more spacious floor plans, and prices start about $50,000 higher. While that may sound like a jump, it means residents can still enjoy a brand new,energy-efficient home from the $220’s, a steal compared to neighborhoods in nearby Maryland. Combine that with a strong school system and tax-friendly benefits to retirees, and it’s no wonder that so many people are flocking to these Pennsylvania neighborhoods that are situated just across the state line from Maryland.
Those interested in either of these beautiful communities should act quickly though, especially since Cedarbrook is nearly sold out, with only six more home sites remaining in the neighborhood.
