A Mature, Established and Vibrant Neighborhood of Unique and Charming Single Family Homes on Shady Tree Lined Streets, just 2 Blocks from the Downtown Silver Spring Central Business District.
Robert Hayes Mc Neill was a 40 year old Washington DC attorney from North Carolina, living with his wife Cora and 2 Children on the "Mc Neill Farm" - Silver Spring in 1918. At this time in the 1900's Silver Spring was mostly open land and forests dotted with a few farms and 3 Large Country Estates.
In 1923 Robert Mc Neill subdivided his farm into lots that today is Robert H. Mc Neills' Addition to Silver Spring Park.
The lots were sold to a few different builders with E Brooke Lee's North Washington Real Estate company ending up with most of the lots. Building started at the beginning of the Depression in 1932-33.
The old circa 1900's farmhouse on the Mcneill property is still there, having been updated several times in the last century.
Most of the 137 Homes in the neighborhood were built in the early to mid 1930's and are prized for their unique character and period architectural detail. No two houses are exactly alike. This is no cookie cutter neighborhood.
The homes in Mc'Neills include unique brick and slate cape cods, colonials and Tudor style houses. Hardwood Floors, Fireplaces, arches, high ceilings and porches were standard ammenities in most of these charming houses. The homes have wide alley's behind them with garages, another feature that was common in the 1930's era.
The Boundaries of McNeills Subdivision are: Dale Drive to the south, Cedar Street to the north, Deerfield Avenue on the east and Dartmouth Avenue on the west.
This Great location is just steps to Nolte Park (playground, several ballfields and picnic area), Bullis Park and four blocks to Sligo Creek Park. Walking distance to the local public elementary & middle schools, both with a French Immersion program. It's only ¾ mile to Metro and the MARC train, and a few Blocks away is the Silver Spring town center with the new civic building & Veteran's plaza, ice rink, shops, restaurants, entertainment, and farmers market. The site of the upcoming, state-of-the-art Silver Spring Library is only four blocks away. McNeill's Neighborhood is the ultimate walkable neighborhood with the perfect balance of urban and suburban living.
