Two new housing developments built since the mall opened are the Villages of Dorchester and Arundel Preserve. These neighborhoods, like many others in Hanover, place an emphasis on a community lifestyle with an eye toward luxury and most feature a central clubhouse, shared swimming pools, recreational fields, and walking trails. Homes in the area are typically large single family brick colonials with spacious open floor plans, hardwood floors, and modern kitchens, however condominium and town homes are also available.
Hanover's convenient location just off I-95 makes it easily accessible to three of the region's busiest cities: Baltimore, Washington DC, and Annapolis, making it an ideal home for commuters, but it is not simply a bedroom community. With the Arundel Mills Mall, Hanover has plenty of recreational opportunities right in town, from outlet stores, to movie theatres, restaurants, and even a Medieval Times dinner and jousting tournament. However, its larger neighboring cities certainly offer a wide variety of other attractions including famed museums, breathtaking waterfronts, historic architecture, and sporting events.
Schools in Hanover are part of the Anne Arundel County School System and include the top-rated Chesapeake Science Point Public Charter School and Harman Elementary. With a median home price of $465,000, Hanover is a dynamic and fun community where families, singles, and young professionals kind find the perfect place to call home.
