Nestled between Chevy Chase and Bethesda just over the DC line, the Town of Somerset offers something unique and special — small town charm with city conveniences. Incorporated in 1906, the town consists of about 440 houses, ranging in architectural styles from original Victorians built in the late 1800s to new construction mid-century modern and arts and crafts homes. With its own budget, mayor and town council, this small town retains control over many decisions which gives its residents a number of amenities not found in other communities close to the city, including a community pool, tennis courts, snow and trash removal, and a town arborist that prunes the tree canopy. Exercise is easy with a path leading to Norwood Park – offering baseball, soccer fields, playgrounds and additional tennis courts – and convenient access Capital Crescent Trail which runs from downtown Bethesda to Georgetown. Friendship Heights and the Metro are located just outside of the community, with a pathway connecting the two neighborhoods, which means grocery shopping, restaurants, retail and theaters are all just minutes away.
