Welcome to Massachusetts Ave Corridor
Many great neighborhoods can be found in Maryland along Massachusetts Avenue including:
Glen Echo Heights & Mohican Hills
Less than 300 homes are located in Mohican Hills, one of Bethesda’s coveted neighborhoods. Originally a summer get-away for Washington city-dwellers because of the cooler temperatures in the rolling hills, the close-knit nature of Mohican Hills is enhanced by its own newly renovated community pool and playground. The homes in this enclave range from original bungalows and victorians, to brand new contemporaries and arts and crafts homes, so there is something for every taste in Mohican Hills. A quiet, close-in location adjacent to the Potomac River, Mohican Hills is the perfect neighborhood for owners who hope to take advantage of DC’s extensive biking and walking trails, yet have easy access to all the major commuter routes.
Located just north of the DC line, Sumner is a small community in Bethesda with convenient access to Washington DC and Northern Virginia. Nestled close to the Potomac River, the area is close to a number of local trails and parks. Most of the homes were built in the earlier part of the twentieth century, though there are several new homes that have been built throughout the community. Sumner boasts traditions including the annual Halloween parade, and a close-knit, voluntary citizens association. A subset of the area is Fort Sumner, a group of just over 100 homes, and takes its name from a Civil War fort from the 1800s. Every year, homeowners from across Bethesda visit Fort Sumner, as the neighborhood adorns the streets and homes with lanterns for true holiday beauty. While the Sumner community feel is abundant, Sumner boasts its own shopping center and restaurants, offering city convenience in a suburban setting.
Woodacres & Springfield
Established in 1940, Wood Acres & Springfield are characterized by their big trees, narrow streets, and families both young and old. Divided by an intersection and several four-way stop signs, Wood Acres has established itself as an esteemed neighborhood. Children of the area have the benefit of walking to Wood Acres Elementary School, one of the top schools in the area. To continue, the community has organized the Wood Acres Citizens Association (WACA). This all-volunteer organization manages to fill their calendar with family friendly events like food drives, Fourth of July parade, and a “Great Pumpkin” on Halloween. In addition, the 10.4 acre Wood Acres Park is home to a playground, two softball fields, a baseball field, a basketball court, and two tennis courts. Close to the neighborhood are a variety of shops within the Westwood Shopping Center and Kenwood Station.
