Potomac Real Estate Search
Potomac is located about 15 miles north of Washington, D.C. and is named for the nearby Potomac River. Its history dates back to the early 1700s and was for much of its history a farming community. It is geographically centered around Potomac Village, a cluster of shops and restaurants at the crossroad of Falls and River Roads. Potomac is a large land area, covering about 34 square miles, and extends from the Capital Beltway north to Darnestown, MD, and from the Potomac River in the west to I-270 in the east. It has approximately 45,000 residents.
Because of its rolling hills and exceptionally large lots, many Potomac residents are horse owners and there are equestrian activities throughout the year. The C & O canal runs along the Potomac River and offers the opportunity for locals and D.C. metro area residents to hike, run and explore. At the west end of Falls Road lies the Maryland side Great Falls National Park, with rapids and cliffs for daredevils and for nature lovers.
Like its neighbors to the south, Bethesda and Chevy Chase, Potomac is home to some of the nation’s wealthiest neighborhoods. Its large lots lend themselves to mansion sized homes, which can be found throughout the area.
