The planned community of Lakelands in Gaithersburg, a neo-traditional development similar to the villages of 18th-century America, has narrow sidewalks and streets in traditional grid patterns.

Market Square, where neighbors can find shops, restaurants, a health club and a movie theater, is within walking distance of most homes. Recreational amenities include swimming, tennis and walking trails. Classic Community is building 100 town houses at Lakelands.

Each house in this Montgomery County community features vinyl siding, a 20-by-10-foot deck and a two-car garage. Brick fronts are optional.

Inside, each home has two or three bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and 12-foot ceilings in the living room. The master bedroom and bath feature 11-foot ceilings, and the luxury master bath has a soaking tub and separate shower. The houses feature crown moldings, two sets of double patio doors in the living room, a first-floor study, ceramic flooring in the foyer and bathrooms, and a center-island kitchen with recessed lighting and 42-inch cabinets, including a wall of glass-front cabinets.
