The Neighborhood-
Takoma Park, community, the town, the Metro…everything!

Located in the Takoma Park neighborhood.

Takoma Park was one of the first planned Victorian commuter suburbs. Those houses are still the foundation of this community. It’s a real town with local restaurants and lots of events. There are parades, the world famous Folk Festival, the Jazz Fest and may other events throughout the year. Glenside Drive is a short drive to the town.  Easy for a bike ride or a hop on the bus.

Mere minutes to all the good stuff, coffee, wine and local restaurants. This is small town living with sidewalks and festivals and that feeling of community. Metro, local schools, the Farmers Market — it’s all here.
