Calvert County Real Estate

Calvert County, the smallest county in Southern Maryland, is one of the fastest growing counties in the State. Located only 46 miles from Washington, D.C., it retains its rural character and agrarian roots, offering good schools, a clean environment and good quality of life. Calvert is a peninsula, bounded by the Chesapeake Bay on the east and the Patuxent River on the west. Steep cliffs and woods predominate on the bay side while along the Patuxent, rolling fields slip gently down to the river. The County's many creeks provide refuge for wildlife as well as scenic areas for boating and fishing. Containing approximately 219 square miles, the County is nine miles wide at its widest point, and 35 miles from the Anne Arundel line to Solomons.

Prince Frederick, the County seat, is located 35 miles southeast of Washington, D.C., and 55 miles south of Baltimore. There are two incorporated towns in Calvert County: North Beach and Chesapeake Beach, located on the bay at the northeast corner of the county. In addition, the Comprehensive Plan identifies seven "town centers." These include (from north to south) Dunkirk, Owings, Huntingtown, Prince Frederick, St. Leonard, Lusby, and Solomons.
