Roz Winegrad was fifth in line last November to purchase a townhome by EYA at Cabin John Village, even though the Potomac, Maryland, development was still just a fenced-in parking lot. The single mom, whose son leaves for college next fall, had been looking at several options to downsize from her large contemporary house in Bethesda. “I was looking for a way to not feel so isolated, and to be part of a community,” she says of the unit she chose that faces Cabin John Regional Park. At the same time, Winegrad will be able to take just a few short steps to the shops and restaurants of the newly updated Cabin John Village. “I think it’s going to be a premier shopping and dining destination without the craziness of downtown Bethesda or Pike & Rose,” she says. “I still want serenity, and I still want a home in an area where there aren’t millions of people every day.”

Tom Maddox has seen Rockville’s landscape change dramatically since he was a boy in the 1940s. “From the center of Rockville, you didn’t have to go three miles without encountering a working farm,” says Maddox, the third generation in a family of surveyors who’ve helped developers transform the city and its surroundings from a rural outpost in the 19th century into the thriving metropolitan suburb it is today. Yet Rockville’s pastoral legacy runs deep, where neighborhoods such as King Farm and North Farm refer to their previous incarnations, and Dawson Farm Park combines public open space with the property’s two original 19th-century farmhouse buildings.
