Shady streets and beautiful parks. Soft summer sunshine and sprawling front lawns. Barbeques and catching fireflies until Mom calls you in for dinner. Chevy Chase and Somerset evoke nostalgia for days passed, for small-town warmth and the playful spirit of youth. The picture of suburban bliss, these neighborhoods offer a community-centric atmosphere, urban sophistication, and a friendly, walkable paradise reminiscent of a simpler time.   
In the early days, Chevy Chase was a rural spot with rolling farmland and horses grazing in sprawling pastures. Invigorated by the rail line, built in 1890, Chevy Chase became a vibrant “streetcar suburb,” transforming into a bastion of spacious yards and stately brick colonials. Leafy sidewalks and manicured lawns add to the Old Americana feel, while easy access to DC’s thriving nightlife and cultural offerings make this peaceful enclave a coveted home base. The sleepy streets and gorgeous greenery of Somerset attract residents for much the same reason. With a strong community and welcoming atmosphere, Somerset sets the stage for games of catch, evening walks with the family pup, and tranquility that belies the area’s proximity to the nation’s capital. An idyllic neighborhood, with pristine parks and whimsical canopy trees, Somerset is an oasis of serenity with a Metro stop. Historic Victorian mansions speak to the time before this stylish community was incorporated in 1906, while mid-century designs and contemporary estates bring a sense of chic modernity. Homes for sale in Chevy Chase MD now offer many options for buyers looking for a unique and modern style.
