Best Neighborhood for Impressing People (Editors’ Pick)

Custom-built Georgian-style mansions sit on impeccably groomed two-acre lots. But they’re just part of what makes this Potomac subdivision one of the area’s most distinguished addresses.

Built around a top-rated TPC golf course off MacArthur Boulevard in the 1980s, the neighborhood has a private landscaping crew that removes leaves from both common areas and private properties—and spruces up residents’ yards off-schedule for free. Access to walking and riding trails, a swim-and-tennis club and the golf course make residents—and their dinner guests—think they’re at a resort rather than a private home.
