Tucked away along the west side of the New Hampshire Avenue corridor north of Route 29 and south of Randolph Road, you’ll find a collection of charming neighborhoods offering a wide variety of home sizes and styles. Within this area are distinct neighborhoods such as Quaint Acres, Rocky Brook Park, Springbrook, Valleybrook, Meadowood, North Springbrook, Springwood and Wolfe Acres. While there are subtle differences in these areas, they share many of the same characteristics and amenities including large, wooded lots and excellent access to schools, shopping, dining, parks and public transportation.
We think one of the greatest strengths of these neighborhoods is the wide variety of styles and sizes of homes and the tranquil settings they all provide (no cookie-cutters here!). Home styles range from true contemporaries to traditional colonials and everything in between. Azaleas, dogwoods and cherry trees line the streets and provide a show each spring and the Northwest Branch parkland, which forms the western border of all these neighborhoods, is perfect for hiking or nature walks!
Just minutes to the new FDA White Oak Campus, the area is also ideally located for commuting into downtown D.C., Columbia, Baltimore, the University of Maryland at College Park and the I-270 and I-95 corridors. The Glenmont Metro station (Red Line) is just minutes away for easy access to the entire D.C. metropolitan region.
Next time you’re headed up or down New Hampshire Avenue in this area take a quick detour to see what all the residents stay so excited about! You’ll find great neighborhoods hidden from view with quiet, tree-lined streets, yet within minutes of all the resources you’d ever need. A winning combination of charm and convenience!
