Columbia MD Homes for Sale

Columbia is located in Howard County, Maryland.  It's a suburb of Baltimore and to some degree, Washington DC, also.  The city was established in 1967 as a planned community made up of ten self-contained villagesJames Rouse developed Columbia based upon his idea that this community could enhance its residents' quality of life by eliminating the inconveniences of current subdivision design.  As the most populated census-designated places in Maryland, the population of Columbia today is over 97,000. 

Columbia and its sister city of Ellicott City use thoughtful and purposeful zoning to protect their mixture of country charm and comfort.  To add to its appeal, about one-third of Columbia has been set aside as open space which offers residents the opportunity to get away from it all.  It has a 950-acre nature preserve as well as a skateboard park and three lakes.


The original
plan for Columbia was for school-age children to attend schools which were located in their own village, and all students were to receive the same high-quality education.  The Columbia public schools are run by the Howard County Public School System.  Students in this school system consistently rank among the state’s highest in student performance on the Maryland School Assessments, scoring well above the national average on standardized tests.  More than 90% of high school graduates from this district continue their education past high school.


In 2008 CNN Money named Columbia, MD the 8th Best Place to Live in the US.  This is the second time in the past three years that Columbia has made this Top Hundred list.  In 2006, it was listed at number four.



While it was originally designed to be different from other suburbs, over time the Columbia MD homes for sale have acquired many of the contemporary characteristics of other US suburbs such as larger private homes on spacious lots.

Each of the ten villages making up Columbia are comprised of several neighborhoods.  Each village has its own shopping and recreational centers, walking paths, and variety of housing including single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and apartments.
