5 Things That Could Make a Neighborhood The One For You

Posted on May 15, 2018 by Miller and Smith Blog Team

If you have browsed our website, you may have noticed a few similarities between the descriptions of all of our new home communities. Perhaps just as or more important than loving your new home, is loving the neighborhood and community in which it is located. Below, we have listed five features of a Miller & Smith community that could make a specific one, the right one for you and your family:


  1. Outdoor space

Not only is it important for you and your family to have outdoor spaces to enjoy, but the American Pet Products Association has reported that 44% of all households in the U.S. own a dog. This means that a large percentage of people also need plenty of outdoor space for their furry friends to roam. All of our neighborhoods are close to outdoor spaces, whether it be trails, parks, sidewalks winding throughout the community, or your own backyard. Better yet, many of our communities are located so close to parks that you can walk there from your new home.



  1. Universal curb appeal

It’s no secret that when you enter a neighborhood that looks nice, good vibes will ensue. If you haven’t seen facades of our new homes before, you are in for a treat. We have some of the best in the industry. From our modern urban townhomes at Upper West One Loudoun to the more traditional looking Cayden Ridge single-family homes, our designs will blow you away, inside and out.

  1. Close to everything, but away from the noise

No one likes to hear the rush of rush hour right inside of their own home. This is why Miller & Smith carefully chooses locations far enough away from the hustle and bustle of metropolitan areas, but close enough to the conveniences your family needs on a daily basis. You will find everyday conveniences such as restaurants, stores, healthcare, and schools just a short drive away from any new Miller & Smith home.


  1. Access to transportation or major highways

For many of our homeowners, commuting or travelling for work is just a way of life. It is important to make sure that a new community offers everything you need to make your life easier, including a short drive to major highways, trains, or bus stations. If a daily commute is a part of your routine, our conveniently located communities will ensure you spend less time on the go, and more time relaxing in your new home.

  1. Top schools

As important as it is for your home to be close to work, public transportation, or a grocery store, it is just as important to be located in a great school district if you have children or have plans for children in the future. One of the advantages of choosing a Miller & Smith community, is that we only build homes where we know your kids will get a great education in a place known for fostering learning and growth! Here are some quick links to get you information on all of the school districts where new Miller & Smith homes are located:
