The boutique townhome community on McComas Avenue is ideally located in the central part of Kensington, a picturesque Montgomery County community with deep historic roots and no shortage of modern amenities. You’ll be living in a quiet residential area with lawns and shade trees, yet still be close to all the town has to offer.
Kensington dates all the way back to a 1689 land grant, and made its first modern advances with the arrival of the B&O Railroad in 1873. By the turn of the century, residential development was underway, with Victorian homes, a small mission and a general store. All these years later, the Main Street charm endures with landmarks such as Warner Mansion, a lovely Queen Anne house within Warner Circle Park in the Kensington historic district. The small town charm is enhanced by the Town Center, popular restaurants and pubs, the Kensington Shopping Center, and Westfield Wheaton, an indoor mall.
You’ll also find an abundance of outdoor activities, including Rock Creek Hiking and Biking, Ken-Gar Palisades Park, Kensington Cabin Local Park, Kensington Heights Park, Sligo Creek, Wheaton Regional Park, public swimming, golf, tennis courts, and a local farmers’ market that is open every Saturday year-round. Commuting is easy with Connecticut Avenue leading south to D.C., and the Wheaton Metro with red line service within walking distance from McComas Ave. Montgomery County Public Schools include Oakland Terrace, Newport Mill and Albert Einstein High.
