Kenwood Forest Flowers - Cherry Blossoms May Challenge

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital Properties DC AB15253

Kenwood Forest, a condo townhouse community of nearly 400 homes, was created in the late 70's from an apartment community built after World War II for returning veterans and their happy families. Kenwood Forest offers a variety of floorplans and facades, including studio and one bedroom garden style condos and two, three or four bedroom townhomes on two or three levels. The homes sit in quiet green courtyards located along Bradley Boulevard, Hillandale, Offutt, Chevy Chase Drive, Willett Parkway, Kenwood Forest Lane, and Fairfax on the edge of Bethesda. 

 Most people have heard about the cherry blossoms at the Tidal Basin in downtown DC and many people have heard about the beautiful tree lined trees in nearby Kenwood that burst into clouds of white cherry blossoms each year. Happily if you live in Kenwood Forest, you don't have to go down to the Tidal Basin or even around the corner to Kenwood with all the crowds there.  One of the most stunning parts of Kenwood Forest is the glorious cherry trees which burst into full bloom in late April or early May. These pink cherry blossoms transform the courtyards into a magical place each spring - just for the lucky residents in Kenwood Forest!


As always, if you want to live in Kenwood Forest, just give us a call at 240-401-5577 or email us at  Here is a link to start your search in Chevy Chase right now! We would love to help you find that perfect home.

Hi Lise... I love, love, love cherry blossom trees... such a shame the flowers don't last all that long. It's one reason I always have a crepe myrtle and a magnolia in my yards... those bloom a long time.

Those cherry blossoms look amazing!  I have always liked them and perhaps I should look into planting one in my front yard to replace the tree that went down years ago.

Cherry blossoms are such a vibrant pinkish shade and we enjoy their blooms. Oh, if they could only last for the whole season!

We have a couple of streets in Wayne that are planted with cherry trees and they are always a delight to drive through.

Hi Lise:

What a beautiful show of color! Cherry trees are one of my favorite flowering trees. I saw the cherry blossoms at the Tidal Basin one year while living in the DC area during college and have never forgotten them.

Nina Hollander, Broker when we moved to Florida I was probably 5 and at  every house for sale that we visited I asked the realtor if it had a crape Myrtis in the yard.

Love this Lise- our home in Leesburg had 3 beautiful Cherry Blossoms that the previous owner planted. They were  beautiful.

Lise Howe - the architecture available in your area in the 1970's was ahead of its times and prettier than what I viewed in Illinois during that era! And those Cherry Blossoming Trees adorn the streets in glamour. It has to be a proud community for homeowners who live there and who are fortunate to call that place home.
