Small Town Charm & Lifestyle Advantages

Quality of life is always something to reflect on, and where you live presents many factors that can affect that quality. In addition to significant and lasting changes in workforce requirements because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re seeing broad interest in homebuyers looking to move a bit farther afield …some call it an urban exodus, we call it a desire for small-town charm! 

Two of our newest Coming Soon communities – Foxx Farm in Sudlersville Md and Meadow Creek in Centreville Md are answering the call for those who choose to set roots down in a location that better aligns with their budget and their lifestyle choices while prioritizing peace and quiet over expense and crowds. 

Here are a few reasons why many consider it great to live in a small town:

Sense of Community:  Those tight-knit, supportive neighbors are more prevalent in small towns. Residents tend to know each other, and there’s a greater chance of forming close connections with neighbors.

Lower Cost of Living: Small towns generally have a lower cost of living compared to larger cities. We’ve found that building the exact same house in more suburban locales increases the price by as much as $100,000! In addition to housing costs, groceries, and other daily expenses may be more affordable, allowing you to save money or allocate resources to other priorities.

Quiet and Peaceful Lifestyle: If you prefer a slower pace with less noise and congestion, a small town is typically a quieter and more peaceful environment.

Natural Beauty: Many small towns are surrounded by scenic landscapes and natural beauty. Residents often have easy access to outdoor activities, contributing to a healthier and more active lifestyle. Case in point, at Foxx Farm, residents will live across from Sudlersville Park, a 36-acre facility with ball fields, pickleball, tennis, trails, and more! 

Less Traffic: Small towns typically have less traffic and congestion resulting in a less stressful commute and an overall more relaxed way of life. 

Safer Environment: Smaller communities tend to have lower crime rates compared to larger urban areas. This can contribute to a sense of safety and security for residents.

Local Traditions: Who doesn’t love a holiday parade with firetrucks? Small towns often have strong local traditions, active community associations, and events that bring residents together. Festivals, parades, and other celebrations create a unique and enjoyable atmosphere the entire family can enjoy.

If a small-town lifestyle sounds ideal to you, consider exploring Foxx Farm in historic Sudlersville. The master plan for the 90-acre property will consist of 98 luxury garage townhomes and 129 single-family detached residences.
