Lush Majestic Settings in a coveted hidden community of only 60 estate homes. Burnt Mills Hills is a quiet pastoral neighborhood of rolling hills, lush indigenous and mature landscaping with Acre+ lots.
Burnt Mills Hills was developed by the
R. E. Latimer Land Company in the early 1930's after purchasing the land from the McCeney Family and others. The first and main road through the Burnt Mills Hills subdivision is McCeney Avenue. The oldest house is a 1856 Farmhouse, that predates the development.
Silver Spring's best kept secret is this sylvan setting off of Route 29 (Colesville Road). It's hard to believe this subdivision is so close to the Urban area of Downtown Silver Spring, the Capitol Beltway and just 4 miles from the District of Columbia - Washington DC line.
Boundaries: The neighborhood is a small group of streets tucked between Lockwood Drive and New Hampshire Avenue, with Northwest Branch Park to the south.
Cresthaven Elementary, Francis Scott Key Middle and Springbrook High schools.
