Project Description

Chevy Chase, MD

This neighborhood is treasured by residents for its convenient location and friendly community.

About

Situated only seven miles from Washington, D.C., residents of this close-in Maryland suburb enjoy the amenities of the city while maintaining a peaceful place to call home. Chevy Chase was recently ranked by Niche as the “Best Place to Retire in Maryland.” With its tree-lined streets and relaxed atmosphere, it’s no wonder why the location earned the top spot for settling down.

Up until the 1880s, Chevy Chase was primarily farmland. The area was developed during the expansion of DC’s streetcar system, with the intention of creating a suburban community. Thanks to the new means of transportation, workers could commute into the city. Additional infrastructure developments in the 1920s brought about updated streets and landscaping. Chevy Chase is composed of five unique villages: Chevy Chase Village, Chevy Chase Section Three, Chevy Chase Section Five, Martin’s Additions, and North Chevy Chase.

The community is widely sought out by potential homeowners for its varied mix of beautiful residences, including historic bungalows and charming Victorians. Expansive estates can also be found in the area. High-end condos and apartments are available around Connecticut Avenue. Chevy Chase attracts young families with its highly rated public schools. Combining suburban living with urban attractions, the neighborhood offers something for everyone.

Amenities

Although Chevy Chase is mainly suburban, residents have easy access to the region’s best shopping, dining, and entertainment. Chevy Chase is bordered on the east by Connecticut Avenue, which serves as the primary corridor for commercial offerings. Wisconsin Avenue, which runs along the western border of the neighborhood, is the destination for luxury shopping. Bethesda’s vibrant nightlife and entertainment opportunities can be found just around the corner. For golfing and social activities, residents turn to the prestigious Chevy Chase Club or the Columbia Country Club. Nearby Rock Creek Park is an urban oasis—whether for hiking a trail or playing a round of tennis, the park is the place to enjoy the outdoors. Locals also appreciate Western Grove Park, a secluded space in Chevy Chase Village.

Transportation

With Connecticut Avenue running directly from Chevy Chase to downtown DC, the city is within easy reach by car. Metrobus routes also serve the area daily. The nearest Metro station is Friendship Heights; serving the Red Line, the station is a short walk from Chevy Chase. The neighborhood is especially suited for cyclists and pedestrians, with multiple cycling trails throughout.
