Real estate in Glenarden includes many older suburban homes showing strong mid-century and Colonial influences. For the latter, elements include sash windows, side-facing gables, exterior shutters, and understated entries placed roughly in the middle of the home’s facade.
The mid-century influence is evident in the use of vinyl siding, red brick facades, and the overall simplicity and efficiency of many of the designs.
Glenarden’s real estate market is full of smaller homes built in the 1950s and 1960s, hovering around the 1,000 to 2,000 square foot range. Some of these homes are laid out in garrison house or split-level designs, as well as attached townhouse units.
Popular (and newer) townhouse communities are mostly situated around Woodmore Towne Centre in the southeast of Glenarden. There are also areas in the northwest that host large duplex units in neighborhoods with mostly driveway and on-street parking, no fences, and large mature trees.
