Our residents can quickly confirm they balance top-rate academics with the personal caring and individual attention you would expect in a small town community.

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It

  Recently the Washington Post sat down with a Winchester homebuyer at Landsdale. “We were tired of the hustle and bustle of Montgomery County, and living in a townhouse,” said Craig, 70, who used to work for the U.S. Department of Defense. “Roberta had an itch to scratch — she wanted a new single-family home, so we sized up and moved to Frederick County.” Life truly happens at Landsdale, where you will find a comfortable, connected and caring community with sweeping views of Sugarloaf Mountain yet accessible to your everyday needs and wants - from errands to commuting. Retirees Roberta and Craig Capen spent more than four decades living in Montgomery Village before buying in the Landsdale community in Monrovia, Md. The Capens purchased the Williamsport floor plan — one of seven single-family floor plans offered by Winchester Homes — for about $625,000. They chose to build a four-foot addition on one side and a porch at the front — both are optional — and to upgrade some of the finishes. We are thrilled the excitement for the community was shared in the Washington Post and that The Capens found their natural escape in Landsdale.

Three Smart Choices For One-Level Living At Landsdale

One of the biggest home design trends in recent years is the first-floor owner’s suite. Historically, this product has been most popular with empty nesters looking for smaller active living space without stairs and additional upstairs space for guests. Today, more and more younger families are opting for this style of home as well, as it provides a more flexible living environment with easier access to primary living spaces, added privacy and separation, and plenty of room for everyone to spread out comfortably.

Ultimately, the decision to select a home with a first-floor owner’s suite is personal. That is why Landsdale is offering homeowners three new and diverse one-level living floorplans to choose from.

Landsdale Frederick MD New HomesThe Foster, by Ryan Homes, offers the convenience of one-level living while still having the space of a two-story home. It features a luxurious private owner’s suite, lavish owner’s bathroom and huge walk-in closet, two additional bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, a two-car garage, and 2,374+ square feet. The foyer and fo  rmal dining room give a feeling of openness and light, flowing seamlessly into the open kitchen and spacious great room with a large center island and dinette, both perfect for entertaining or simply spending time together as a family.


Lennar Frederick MD New HomesThe Bonnington, by Lennar, expertly blends the need for space with the desire for efficiency. This beautiful two-story home features a deluxe first-floor owner’s suite with spa-like bathroom and super shower, three secondary bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, a two-car garage, and 2,892+ square feet. A library is adjacent to the formal dining room and the entry hall leads into the open concept gourmet kitchen with large breakfast nook and a great room with vaulted ceiling, ideal for an open, easy flow while hosting parties or family gatherings.


Winchester Homes Williamsport Model Frederick MD New HomesThe Williamsport, by Winchester Homes, features single-level “ranch-style” living in an open and inviting floor plan including a large owner’s suite, two generous secondary bedrooms, two to three baths, a two-car garage and 2,440+ square feet. At the front of the home, the foyer is flanked by a formal living room and dining room, while to the rear, you’ll find the family room and an expansive kitchen that’s perfect for casual get-togethers with family and friends. The lower level is a blank canvas that can be customized to match your lifestyle needs.

The options to personalize these exquisite home designs are endless. Whether you are seeking additional bedrooms or bathrooms for your growing family and guests; flex spaces like a sunroom, finished recreation room, or home office; or additional features and upgrades – we can meet your needs and help you build the perfect home to complement the way you live.
