KENWOOD

Kenwood in Chevy Chase is classical luxury and traditional beauty for a discerning buyer. The homeowners take great pride in their homes and the beautiful landscaping. Kenwood in Chevy Chase is well known for its cherry blossoms which rival those at the Tidal Basin.  The homes here are in the Westland Elementary School district.

This spectacular neighborhood located in Chevy Chase, Maryland was begun in the late 1920s.  At one time, Kenwood was a dairy farm when Kennedy-Chamberlain Development Co. was founded in 1927. The developers became so impressed with the cherry trees around the Tidal Basin that they planted the trees before they built the first house! Membership to Kenwood golf course was offered free as part of purchasing a home in the subdivision. Currently, there are almost 300 houses in Kenwood, mostly large traditional colonials on perfectly manicured lawns. There have been many famous residents who have lived in Kenwood including Vice President Spiro Agnew and several Cabinet secretaries.

With fewer than 300 homes, Kenwood provides homebuyers with an intimate sense of community. Neighborhood get-togethers and holiday events are planned throughout the year.

In the last quarter of 2021 into the first quarter of 2022, ten homes sold in Kenwood in Chevy Chase.  The least expensive was 5500 Dorset, a property that had been in the same family for 50 years.  With 4 bedrooms, 4 and a half baths and 2680 square feet, it sold in April 2022 for $1,515,000.  The other nine properties sold from $2,000,000 to $5,800,000.  In the last half of 2023, eight homes sold in Kenwood ranging in price from $2,100,000 for two different homes, one on Hillburne and one on Highland to $6,879,000 for a home at 6105 Kennedy Drive.   This home on Kennedy Drive is newly constructed with nearly 6000 square feet of space on over one third of an acre and backing to parkland.

If you want a gracious home in luxury neighborhood and you don't see anything you like in Kenwood, you might consider communities like Edgemoor, Bannockburn, Burning Tree or Chevy Chase Village for starters if you want to be in the Bethesda-Chevy Chase school district or Whitman.

KENWOOD FOREST I

If you are looking for homes for sale in Westbrook Elementary, you might consider Kenwood Forest I.  Like its sister community, Kenwood Forest II, Kenwood Forest I is a community of townhomes converted from apartments in the late 1970s to early 1980s. It is at the intersection of Bradley Blvd and Fairfax Road. The townhomes are set in courtyards filled with mature trees. The community is very pet friendly and people enjoy throwing a  ball with their pets in Norwood Park or walking their dogs on the Capital Crescent Trail or into downtown Bethesda.

This community is not very large and there are typically not many homes on the market throughout the year.  To see what is on the market now, just click here.

If there are no homes for sale at the moment, please give the Lise Howe Group a call at 240-401-5577.  Chances are that we know of another home coming on the market shortly.  Other townhome communities that you might consider are Westbard Mews near Massachusetts Avenue and  Hamlet Place off Connecticut Avenue .

WESTMORELAND HILLS

Westmoreland Hills is another great area to look for homes for sale in Westbrook Elementary.  Westmoreland Hills’ boundaries vary depending on who you ask. It is generally agreed that the neighborhood is bounded by the Maryland and D.C. border to the east, Dalecarlia Reservoir to the south and Little Falls Stream Valley Park to the west.

The Montgomery Planning department draws the neighborhood’s northern boundary in a line that cuts through Falmouth and Portsmouth roads on the near side of Massachusetts Avenue and through Worthington Drive on the far side. It also includes Overlook as part of the neighborhood. However, Overlook has its own homeowners association with a community pool that is not accessible to the rest of the neighborhood. Spring Hill is also sometimes considered part of Westmoreland Hills.

Meanwhile, the Westmoreland Citizens Association’s boundary line puts the houses on Worthington Drive in Yorktown Village.

In 2022  the average sale price in the neighborhood, including Overlook, was $1.6 million. The most expensive house sold was a four-bedroom, five-bathroom Cape Cod for $2.3 million.  The least expensive house, which had three bedrooms and four bathrooms, was sold for $960,000. However, that house was likely a teardown. The next lowest was a three-bedroom, three-bathroom house that sold for just under $1.3 million.

In the last half of 2023, the most expensive home was one that sold on Cape Cod Court for $3,300,000.  That home is described as having 9,000 plus square foot residence featuring Cameron Ruppert designed interiors, nestled on a private cul-de-sac.
