Kensington Real Estate Guide
Kensington is a town that covers a large area and holds many distinctive communities and neighborhoods. At the time of the newly established charter, Kensington contained over a dozen subdivisions created in the late 19th century. Currently, the town's postal zone spans a wide area and includes Chevy Chase View, Rock Creek Hills, Kensington Heights, Homewood, Byeford Knolls, Rock Creek Highlands, part of Parkwood, and many others.
Due to the area's top-rated public schools, strong sense of community, and proximity to numerous amenities (including the Rock Creek Trail and Westfield Wheaton shopping mall), Kensington earned a top-ten spot on Niche's list of the best suburban communities in Maryland.

Living in Kensington, Maryland
In the Kensington Historic District, you can easily find a variety of distinguished elements which personify the town's history and keep the area tied to the past. Most notably is the "Antique Row" on Howard Avenue, one of the largest collections of antique shops in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
Rich Local History
The Town of Kensington was chartered in 1894, but before that time, the land had traded hands and names many times. However, most deeds were linked to the original "Joseph's Park," which was owned by Colonel William Joseph in the later 1600s. The western border of this park is roughly four miles of Rock Creek, from Chevy Chase in the south to beyond Parkwood. The northern limit swings from Rock Creek to the current intersection of Veirs Mill road and Georgia Avenue. Kensington now resides in this northwestern corner of the old Park, which used to be more than six and a half square miles in size.
Community groups in Kensington set up local events throughout the year. An example of this is the yearly Labor Day Parade and Festival. This celebration usually brings a large attendance of neighbors to the festivities. Libraries and schools also put on various events, and the community theater provides performances at the Town Hall and Cedar Lane Stage. Local newsletters help carry the schedules and information on these events and special activities.
