KENSINGTON!

Real Estate KensingtonWelcome to Kensington! Established in 1894, this historic, sought after town, perfectly situated between Silver Spring and Bethesda, is known for its notable Victorian architecture and scenic parkland. Wide open green space, beautiful homes and great schools are just a few of the reasons people line up to live here.

The area around Rock Creek basin,  where Kensington is located, was primarily agricultural until 1873. It became a summer refuge for Washington D.C. residents and eventually evolved into a commuter suburb. The large southern most section remains largely unchanged and is a historically preserved zone. 

One-half mile from town is an entrance into Rock Creek Regional Park, where hiking, jogging and biking can be enjoyed along scenic Beach Drive. There are seven parks filled with nature trees, gardens, landscaping, fountains and picnic tables, as well as several Montgomery County Parks
