Welcome to Chevy Chase
This picturesque community leans more toward city life in the District, which lies just beyond the Chevy Chase Circle. This engaging neighborhood is loyal to its commercial center along “The Avenue,” and proud of its eclectic, early 20th Century architecture lining tidy and leafy streets.
An inclusive community with a global outlook.
Chevy Chase was another of the early streetcar suburbs made possible by a rail line running up Connecticut Avenue from downtown DC In a few short years, a pastoral farmland was transformed into comfortable homes with front yards, sidewalks and a short distance to local shops and one of the areas first silent movie theaters. Today its residents still work in official Washington or nearby Bethesda, are politically engaged and cherish their neighborhood’s small town feel.
What To Expect:
Sleepy side streets, ample greenery and a strong sense of community.
With its shaded sidewalks, manicured lawns and well-kept houses, Chevy Chase looks like quintessential small town America.
Laid back living in a fast paced city.
Chevy Chase provides an easy commute to downtown Washington by bus or Metro, although most residents drive for shopping and recreation beyond the neighborhood.
Deer and other wildlife often wander into back yards from neighboring Rock Creek Park, which provides easy access for bike rides, hiking, jogging and even horseback riding.
