What's it Like to Live in Gerrardstown

A Quick Look

The town sits off Route 51 coming from Inwood. The unincorporated town is small and rural, but still offers schools, churches, a cemetery, and a post office slightly down the road. The further through the town you go the closer you will be to traveling up "Gerrardstown Mountain". The further you go East you can find yourself around the Winchester, Virginia area. 

Unexpected Charm

There is a good mix of lifestyles in town. For example, Round Top Estates is a very luxe place, but at the same time has mansion-esque homes and a small rancher next door. Springdale Farms offers more higher end homes and is a Dan Ryan community. You can still get a sprawling home and stay away from a large metro.

Home Availablility

The majority price range is $100,000 to $400,000 thousand with a handful of homes exceeding $600,000 in price. Ranchers, A-frames, and colonials are the main housing types for sale in the Gerrardstown area. There are a few major subdivisions in the area such as Springdale Farms and Round Top Estates on the mountain. These subdivisions are more higher in pricing and offer some of the largest homes.

You'll Just Love...

The town has a certain seclusion about it. Resting on a main roadway never caused the town to grow into gridlock like in nearby Inwood or Martinsburg. You can still have a leisurely lifestyle in a larger home or live small in a rancher in town. 


The town is very rural with no large stores, but plenty of historical buildings and farm land. It is a small town in the fact that it is only a mile or so long with a few scattered streets that have scattered homes on them. The outer reaches of the town offer larger subdivisions and larger homes.
