A Tradition of Understated Elegance

Known as an affluent enclave of beautiful homes with a prime location near Friendship Heights and Washington, DC, Chevy Chase is a highly desirable Montgomery County community. Top-notch schools are a local attraction for Chevy Chase residents, with some of the smartest people in the nation. And for the occasional shopping trip, options include Jimmy Choo, Cartier, Louis Vuitton or Gucci stores.

Chevy Chase Club

An exclusive social institution since 1892, Chevy Chase Club provides members, their families and guests with remarkable gardens, grounds, and clubhouses. Facilities include golf and tennis venues, fitness center, swimming complex, full-size ice skating rink and various private party rooms and dining options.

Safe and Secure

Unlike most police forces in the country, the Chevy Chase police have the means to respond to every single call and make a point of circling back to tell residents what they found out. With a team of 10 officers serving a village of 1,953 residents, there’s very little crime. The Chevy Chase police force, who is equipped with Segways as well as new 4x4s, knows their community. Courtesy is a premium.

Chevy Chase Lake Development

Construction on the first phase of a redevelopment project in Chevy Chase could start in early 2018, according to officials with the two developers partnering on the plan. Mixed-use elements include a new grocery-store anchor, apartments, civic green space, and more.

As a resident of Chevy Chase for over thirty years, I love my quiet, tree-filled neighborhood from which I can walk to just about anything I might need or want, including Metro. I feel like I have the best of all worlds - great schools, wonderful people, accessibility and convenience within a peaceful community.
