The tranquil residential haven of Chevy Chase falls within Montgomery County but also stretches into the District of Columbia. Public transportation combines with easy access to a number of exciting shopping districts, restaurants and recreational amenities for a convenient yet somewhat secluded lifestyle. Community spirit is strong, and well-kept older homes are especially impressive. Single-family homes tend to be graced by mature trees and meticulous landscaping, while attractive new high rises provide maintenance-free options. In addition to the town of Chevy Chase, the village of the same name covers less than half a square mile. These two municipalities join Bethesda to form the Greater Bethesda-Chevy Chase community from the District of Columbia border to beyond the Capital Beltway. The area is served by the metro subway system and public pub systems for convenience commuting.
The boundaries of Forest Hills are Broad Branch Road to the north, Rock Creek Park to the east, Tilden Street to the south and Connecticut Avenue to the west. The neighborhood offers a wide variety of detached homes many of which are quite large and/or on larger lots than found elsewhere in northwest Washington, D.C. The commercial strip along Connecticut Avenue is within walking distance of the neighborhood. Other points of interest include the Howard University School of Law, the Levine School of Music _ one of America’s leading community music schools, and the Hillwood Museum — the house and collection of Marjorie Merriweather Post.
