Merry-Go-Round Farm
Our Community
Merry-Go-Round Farm is a unique, residential and equestrian community located in Potomac, Maryland that borders the C&O Canal National Park.  
 
Merry-Go-Round Farm sits on a 204-acre promontory, three miles west of the Great Falls, and boasts majestic views of the Potomac River.  This special community seamlessly integrates a limited number of luxury, custom-built homes into a carefully-preserved natural setting.  The architecture of the homes is tastefully restrained according to guidelines designed by premier area architects. There are only 81 homesites clustered into five separate sections, and homesites average three-quarters of an acre.  The beauty of this design allows for large parcels of land to be set aside and thoughtfully managed for the shared enjoyment of the residents and the area's native flora and fauna.  
 
The common grounds include an equestrian center with two well-maintained stables and ample pasture, miles of forest trails for hiking and riding, three small lakes, and several large rolling fields, perfect for picnics in warmer weather and cross-country skiing or sledding in the snow.  Groundskeepers and barn staff live onsite and tend to the land and the horses under the direction of a Homeowners' Association, of which all the residents are members.    
 
Merry-Go-Round Farm is part of the Montgomery County public school system, and the schools in the Potomac area are among the finest in the nation. There are also many excellent private schools nearby.
