One of the finest examples of desirable, attractive Maryland real estate is the delightful community of Colesville, Maryland.  Colesville is an unincorporated and census-designated community that is often considered to be part of neighboring Silver Spring but features its own charm and individuality.

Colesville occupies an area of 9.2 square miles with a population of 19, 810 people as of the 2010 census.  These are primarily professionals with a media annual household income of $91,696.  Its boundaries are considered to be between the Northwest and Paint Branches of the Anacostia River.  North and south boundaries are not quite as distinct but generally considered to be from Springbrook High School on the south to Cloverly in the north.

History abounds in Colesville.  The town first used the name of “Colesville” in 1806 when the Maryland General Assembly changed its election place to “Edward Berry’s, commonly called Coale’s-Ville,” a name often thought to be derived from Elizabeth (Coale) Snowden, wife of Richard Snowden from nearby Sandy Spring.  The area eventually became known as “Coalsville,” as recently as 1906.

Built in 1790, “Milimar” is the oldest standing house in Colesville and listed in the National Register of Historic Places.  Another historic house called “Drumeldra” was built in 1850 and is still standing on Notley Road.  And the Smithville Colored School was founded in Colesville, one of sixteen schools for African Americans built in the 1920s.  The school was closed in 1952 when all Montgomery County schools for “colored” children were consolidated.

Present-day Colesville is a location with a population of approximately 21,000, with an estimated per capita income of $48,430.  Predominant industries are professional, scientific and technical services, followed by public administration, retail trade and educational services.  There are seven colleges or universities with 2000 students or more that are within eleven miles of Colesville.  Median household income is significantly above Maryland state average, as are the percentage of population with bachelor’s degree or higher and median house value.

A visit to Colesville will always be pleasant, historic and worthwhile.  This is some of Maryland real estate’s most prized space, with a population and geography that distinguish it and make it extraordinary.
