Suburban Luxury Lifestyle

Chevy Chase, DC

Offering a serene sense of comfort and community, Chevy Chase is the epitome of Washington, DC’s suburban luxury lifestyle. With its treelined streets and gracious properties, the neighborhood is nicely positioned at the District’s northern border, sharing a name with its sister community next-door in Maryland. The duality owes to the fact that the land was settled long before the establishment of DC’s boundaries. Residents don’t much care about arcane geographical discrepancies, and neither should you—it’s simply a great place to live, regardless of which side of Western Avenue your home search leads to.

The luxury real estate market in Chevy Chase is very much tilted toward detached single-family homes. That said, there are some high end condos and townhouses on the Maryland side of the border, that being a larger area that also includes major north/south corridors. By contrast, the DC side of Chevy Chase butts right up against Rock Creek Park, resulting in an insulated and leafy feel, with cul-de-sacs and pleasantly strollable sidewalks.
