Braddock Heights Real Estate Data

The population: c. 2600

Estimated median house value in 2016: $371,000. The eclectic range of architecture, dates of construction, and customized styles of homes in the neighborhood make averages a bit meaningless.



Local Folklore: Fun Trivia

Braddock Heights is the home of the fabled “Snallygaster”, in German: “quick spirit”, a half-bird-half-reptile creature supposedly responsible for the dissapearance of livestock in the Middletown Valley since the mid-18th Century. Evidently, a missing resident was also blamed on the Snallygaster throughout the years. The Frederick area was settled by Germans, and their folklore can still be heard. We can see seven-pointed stars painted on some local barns, symbols to keep the monster at bay.

You can read all about it in Patrick Boyton’s book: Snallygaster: the Lost Legend of Frederick County

Braddock Heights History

Named for General Edward Braddock from the days of the French and Indian Wars, a lot of history surrounds Braddock Heights. It was the site of a major battle during the Civil War. The view of the City of Frederick from Old Braddock inspired Oliver Wendell Holmes to write about the “clustered spires” in his journal in 1862, and his friend John Greenleaf Whittier popularized the term in his famous poem about Barbara Fritchie.

Braddock Heights was founded in 1896 as a winter resort community, one of the first modern planned communities in the country. It grew to include several hotels, a pool, an amusement park, wooden skating rink (which was the nation’s oldest until it burned down in 1998…I  used to take my kids there:) Until 1980 there was a small ski resort.

Railroad service between Frederick and Braddock Heights started in 1896. Service from Braddock to Jefferson Md was added in 1906, bringing hotel guests and vacationers, and continued until 1940 and 1946.

The Braddock Heights Historic Society has a website and newsletter, their mission is to preserve the history of the area. You can see old photos and submit any that you have.

Braddock Becomes a Permanent Neighborhood

Braddock Heights neighborhood
The Braddock Heights Pool is a Membership only pool

After World War II, Braddock Heights became more of a community with permanent residents, as opposed to a vacation resort.  There is a Braddock Heights Community Association which holds events at the local Park. (like the Braddock Heights Community Association of Facebook for the latest information) Originally Camp Schley Inn, the local restaurant The Braddock Inn is still in operation, one of the remaining historic places.

Memberships to the pool are available, check the Association website or hours and swimming lessons. The swim team is called “the Barracudas”.

You see homes that are very eclectic and unique, with varying architectural styles, reflecting how the community grew over the years. There are a number of Victorians and Arts & Craft homes, as well as contemporary homes, all custom built and different. As a result, it’s not the neighborhood to find a tract home.

Ten Things To Do In The Historic District, Downtown Frederick Md

If you are visiting Frederick and want to make the most of your day, the Historic District in Downtown Frederick will make a great destination with lots of interesting things to do.  Make sure you have your camera! Even if you’re a local, you might find something new on my list. Here are 10 things to do in the Historic District in downtown Frederick Md:

🌉 1.   Spend some time at the Community Bridge.

This bridge mural was painted by artist William Cochran and a crew of local artists and residents. There is a sign with a Key to the many murals painted on the bridge on the creek level, next to the Delaplaine Art Center. The images were sent in from residents as well as former residents who lived elsewhere. They are reflections of what it means to live in Frederick County.

There are several other murals in downtown Frederick painted under the direction of William Cochran. The series is called “Angels in the Architecture”. Frederick has been named one of America’s 12 “Prettiest Painted Places”, selected from nearly 200 nominees.

The Community Bridge

The Community Bridge, or Painted Bridge, a faux-painted concrete bridge on Carroll Creek stands just outside of the condominium units. Several years ago, a group of artists, lead by William Cochran, painted the bridge with hundreds of symbols. Interestingly, the symbols were “crowd-sourced” from Frederick County residents, and even from past residents living in other parts of the country. A sign with a key to the symbols stands on the east side of the bridge.

Lake Linganore Community Homes for Sale

Lake Linganore Community Real Estate

Lake Linganore at Eaglehead is Maryland’s largest privately owned lake community. Frederick County’s first Planned Unit Development (PUD), Lake Linganore is community of villages centered around a system of lakes: Lake Linganore, 250 acre-lake, Lake Anita Louise, Lake Merle, and Lake Marion. Linganore Creek forms Lake Linganore at the Linganore Dam, at Eaglehead Drive. The creek runs from the dam, into the Monocacy River. Lake Linganore Homes for Sale is updated daily. Lake Linganore Community

The community was platted in 1968, and was originally designed to be a vacation community. The Brosius brothers, Bill and Lou, designed “new town” with Lake Linganore as the centerpiece. As the community grew, more permanent homeowners bought homes and the community became one of the affordable places to build a new home as early as the 80’s.

The Highland family lived in Lake Linganore for 16 years, and raised our 3 boys and daughter (for the most part) there. We lived in Pinehurst Village in a custom cape cod single-family home (before moving into the City of Frederick). Our kids loved the life in Lake Linganore! They loved to tromp through the woods and explore the Indian Caves. We went swimming several times a week throughout the summers and enjoyed the lakes and beaches. Lake Linganore is a beautiful place for kids (and Labrador retrievers) to grow up.

Native American History

Linganore is home to the mysterious Indian Caves. It is said that “Linganore” gets its name after an Indian chief that once lived on Linganore Creek. Folklore states that this chief lost a left ear during a battle and German settlers referred to him using the German terms ‘linke’ (left) and ‘ohr’ (ear.) Tradition states that “Chief Linganore” was a member of the Susquehanna Indian tribe and died in 1765.

Indian tribes have lived or hunted in Frederick County for 12,000 years, but in more recent history it is thought that primarily the Susquehanna tribe encamped in and around Linganore Creek. In the early 1700s hunting parties would come down from Pennsylvania to camp near Linganore Creek while they hunted game to feed their tribe.

A 600-foot long rock-and-earth-fill dam impounds a 204-acre body of water known as Lake Linganore, named for the larger of the two creeks that feed the lake. Brosius Rock, the boulder located at the corner entrance of the earthen dam, has a carved inscription that dedicates the dam—the Brosius Dam— to J. William Brosius, the father of Eaglehead’s original developers. Incorporated into the design of the Brosius Dam are 11 fountains along the northern wing of the dam area

Maxwell Square Townhouses

The Maxwell Square townhouse development on 5th Street in historic downtown Frederick has been sitting motionless since c. 2007, when the real estate market came to a screeching halt, including new homes. In 2013, Comstock Homes purchased the remainder of the development, which then consisted of only the homes built on 5th Street.

This summer, construction has resumed, and two of the remaining six townhouse sections are almost completed. See the following photo slide:

Towns at Maxwell Square in Historic Frederick Md

The Towns at Maxwell Square, a townhouse development of 49 units, has two models, The George and The Frederick, with 2400 square feet, starting in the high-300’s. Both models are 4 stories with 3 or 4 bedrooms, 2 full and one or 2 half baths. The 4th floor is a spacious loft.

When the homes were first planned, the original builder had 42 floor plans approved by the Historic Commission. The plans had numerous bedroom configurations, some had an elevator, some had a first floor 2-car garage.

The kitchens are well-appointed with a Chef-Inspired luxury package, granite counters, designer cabinets, upgraded appliance package and many other deluxe features. Balconies, hardwoods and open floor plans are just a few of the charms.

The master bedroom is equipped with walk-in closet and luxurious master bath. Luxury and modern amenities with the historic feel and look.

The Federal style architecture fits in perfectly in the historic downtown Frederick neighborhoods. Brick and siding exteriors for easy maintenance, as well as landscaped common areas that are kept within a Condominium association structure.

Enjoy the Comstock video tour of Frederick:

A Little Back-Story

The story of this community seems is just short of a saga. After much negotiation with the Historical Society the original developer, the Churchhill Group, managed to tear down all but 3 of the existing homes on the block, located at 30 East 5th Street, Frederick.  They built the units on 5th street, and renovated the 3 existing homes. Then the real estate market went south in 2007.

The original designers managed to create a style on the inside that is modern yet reminiscent of the Federal style in its details.  They have 49 lots total. Now Comstock is continuing with two sections almost completed.

The development has earned the EPA’s Energy Star label.   This means they are significantly more efficient than a standard home, at least 30 percent more efficient than the national Model Energy Code and 15% more efficient than the state energy code, whichever is more rigorous.

“To create a creek side park through historic Frederick Maryland, providing unique opportunities for commercial, residential, cultural, and recreational development, enhancing the quality of life for the entire Frederick community.” (1991 Carroll Creek Master Plan)

The Park which runs the length of Carroll Creek from the top of Baker park to the other side of East Street, was a 20+ year project, which officially opened June 21, 2004.  The final phase of the park was completed in 2017. The park includes brick pedestrian paths, fountains, additional water features, landscaping, benches and several walking bridges over the creek. Each summer the creek is filled with plant life. Each winter the Creek lights up with boats that the residents vote on to raise money for charity. The Carroll Creek Linear Park is a gem for the downtown Frederick area.
