Capitol Heights New Home Communities

Capitol Heights, a big, diverse city just outside of D.C., is still a well-kept secret--but that's the way residents want it. After all, if you had one of the shortest commute times anywhere in the area, wouldn't you want to keep that information to yourself? However, now that the secret is out, Capitol Heights is working to accommodate the inevitable growth spurt, or two. Two new Metro stations will help those who prefer to travel by train than by car. The fact remains, there is a lot of new development in the area, and that this section of Prince George's County is going places. In fact, the town hall was recently outfitted with all kinds of "green" updates--a sign that this is a city with its eye on the future.

Although D.C. is almost close enough to touch-- and area residents do spend a lot of time exploring the capital city-- "there's no place like home" for many Capitol Heights residents. They shop at Hampton Mall and eat at a local favorite, Sardi's. "Sardi's" is the popular shorthand for Sardi's Chicken, which specializes in Peruvian charbroiled chicken, or "pollo a la brasa," an unusual and delicious culinary treat.

They also send their children to area schools. Many of the city's private schools have such a good reputation that there's always a waiting list, but if you start early and learn as much as you can about the school system, your child will end up in the right school for him or her. Whether that school is religiously-affiliated like Grace Brethren Christian School, or internationally-focused like the multilingual New Hope Academy, or something in between, parents can find the best place for their children to learn and grow. There are many options for home buyers who are looking for new single family homes in Capitol Heights, MD. 

This is an area primarily focused on its future and the future of its children; however, there is a lot of history to explore here. Capitol Heights is a town that is proud of that history, but then, it has every right to be. The town sprang from a planned community designed by Otway B. Zantzinger, who created it to fulfill the needs of commuters and relieve the overcrowding in the nation's capital. However, he had just one criterion for the residents of his new town: they could not be African-American. Well, history answered Zantzinger's unreasonable demand with a resounding "no," because today the area is one of the most diverse in the D.C. area, with over 90 percent of residents claiming African ancestry. The story of Capitol Heights is the story of America's progress.

Capitol Heights has been a destination for seekers of the American Dream since 1904. If you're working in D.C. and looking for a welcoming home for you and your family, this is the place to be. New Home Source is proud to help you find your piece of that dream. Also, if you're not looking to buy, there are a good amount of homes for rent in Capitol Heights, MD.
