Welcome to Potomac

Lavish countryside living in a sprawling exurban paradise.
The name Potomac has been said to mean “a place where people trade,” and, in fact, the Potomac River functioned as an avenue for transport during the Civil War. This historic area even lent its name to the most important Union army, the Army of the Potomac. Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington, sits on the banks of the Potomac and, considering the first president of the United States commuted, it makes sense that Potomac is still a coveted home for those working in Washington, DC. 
This peaceful enclave is a relaxing respite from the bustle of the nation’s capital, and the area is rich with gorgeous green spaces, hiking trails, and country club living. Potomac offers some truly impressive real estate. While you can find modest one-bedroom condos, quaint homes, and upscale, elegant townhomes, Potomac is known for its breathtaking estates. Multi-million dollar constructions with dozens of rooms and sprawling, perfectly manicured lawns are the real standouts here.

People and Lifestyle

The country club lifestyle is a major part of both social and recreational life in Potomac, with golf, tennis, swimming, and club dinners ranking high on the list of ways to unwind. The lifestyle is sophisticated and pristine, blending opulence with serenity. Locals value privacy, quietness, and the area’s bucolic nature.

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping

Chances are when you go out to dinner in small-town Potomac, you’ll run into your new neighbors or fellow members of the club, especially at the local favorites, like Gregorio's Trattoria. This cozy, family-friendly eatery offers pizza and Italian-American favorites, made from the finest, freshest, locally grown ingredients.
Rustic bistro Lock 72 serves burgers and classic American fares, like oysters, salmon, and filet mignon, while innovative Founding Farmers is a farmer-owned spot dishing up farm-to-table themed American eats, like chicken and waffles, hand-formed burgers with fresh-cut fries, and apple pie. They bake their own bread, churn their own ice cream, and even distill their own spirits.

Things to Do

The area’s premier country club, Congressional Country Club has been a local favorite since opening in 1924, and its dazzling Blue Course has been utilized for five major championship golf tournaments. Equestrians will be right at home at the Potomac Horse Center. This state-of-the-art facility offers boarding, lessons, 12 shows a year, and clinics with world-renowned riders.


Potomac residents send their children to some of the best private schools the area has to offer, including:
