Calling Chevy Chase, MD home

With a long list of distinguished residents both past and present- including several Supreme Court Justices, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, politicians of every stripe, diplomats the world over, major sports franchise owners, venture capitalists and the top minds in journalism and the media- it is no wonder why Chevy Chase enjoys the distinction of being one of the wealthiest and most well-educated  neighborhoods in the country. The neighborhood itself is divided into several village like sections and maintains the small town feel of a quiet, leafy suburb despite its close proximity to the District. While businesses in the neighborhood are limited to the quaint shops and markets along Brookville Road, the Connecticut Avenue restaurant and retail corridor lies just on the other side of Chevy Chase Circle and Friendship Heights and Downtown Bethesda are also easily accessed from the neighborhood. Some of the areas most prominent and exclusive country clubs, including the Chevy Chase Club and Columbia Country Club also call Chevy Chase home.



Chevy Chase's history dates back to 1725, when Colonel Joseph Belt received a land grant of 560 acres just northwest of the future Washington D.C. The area was further developed in the late 1800's by Francis G. Newlands and William Stewart who expanded their holdings to over 1,700 acres through their company, The Chevy Chase Land Company, and developed Chevy Chase as a popular streetcar suburb for those looking to live in a park like setting and commute downtown- a novel separation of workers from their workplaces that emerged as the new suburban ideal at the end of the 19th century. The trolley car linking Chevy Chase to downtown operated along Connecticut Avenue until 1935. Chevy Chase today still reflects many aspects of the founder's vision for a community with broad streets, large lots and ample parkland.



Architectural diversity is one of Chevy Chase's principal charms with bungalows being one of the popular earlier home styles followed by homes built in Eclectic Revival Styles- Georgian Colonial, Dutch Colonial, Neoclassical, Mediterranean, Renaissance and Tudor Revival- in the 1920's and 1930's. More modern residences have been built as the neighborhood has evolved but even these newer construction residences typically capture architectural elements from earlier eras to blend in with the fabric of the neighborhood.
