Peppermill Village is an unincorporated community near Maryland Route 214 (Central Avenue) in Prince George's County, Maryland.[1] The Washington Redskins football stadium, Metrorail's Blue Line, and Hampton Mall shopping center are very near by. Because it is not formally incorporated, it has no official boundaries, but the United States Census Bureau has defined a census-designated place (CDP) consisting of Peppermill Village and the adjacent community of Carmody Hills, for statistical purposes.

Peppermill Village is bounded to the south by Maryland Route 214, or Central Avenue, which to the west becomes East Capitol Street in the District of Columbia and to the east connects with the Capital Beltway and the town of Largo.
