Kensington Real Estate Search
Kensington is a lovely community located just outside the Beltway, with tree-lined streets and easy access to major routes of transportation and the Medical Center and Forest Glen Metro stations. Primarily a bedroom community for workers who commute to jobs in Washington, D.C., it also has its own commercial enterprises which include Antique Row, the West Howard Antiques District, shops, art galleries, restaurants and supermarkets. It has a population of about 20,000 and encompasses the entire 20895 zip code.
Within Kensington are many distinct neighborhoods and two municipalities – the Town of Kensington and the Town of Chevy Chase View. The long history of the Town of Kensington (TOK to locals) can be found in its historic section which boasts Victorian architecture and homes built in the late 1800s. The Kensington Historical Society is active and sponsors events throughout the year, including a self-guided walking tour of the Town’s residences and the historic Noyes Children’s Library.
Residents of Kensington enjoy Rock Creek Park with its trails, ball-fields and parks, which is located along its western boundary. There is a farmer’s market on Saturday mornings in warmer months at the historic MARC train station, and a Labor Day Parade enjoyed by locals and residents from throughout the metro area.
