Maple Lawn is the “hidden gem” of Fulton, said Craig Northrop, a real estate agent with Long & Foster. Though Fulton has been settled since the early 1800s, the sleepy, unincorporated area received much less attention than busy Howard County neighbors like Columbia and Ellicott City — until just over a decade ago, when Greenebaum Enterprises began developing the land.

Today, Maple Lawn is a vibrant mixed-use community that appeals to buyers looking for ease of access to Baltimore and Washington, new housing, and an energetic, urban vibe in a suburban location.

“It’s a planned community with pools and tennis courts and all kinds of commercial things,” said Northrop. “And it’s smaller city-style housing, both townhouses and single-family homes.”

The community also boasts large single-family homes, proximity to the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab, and a growing number of restaurants, included the lauded Indian spot Ananda.
