Upscale, Peace & Quiet, Antiques

This small town community with a population of approximately 2,200 was established in 1894 and is yet another neighborhood in our area that offers a variety of housing, ranging from Colonials, Split-Levels, and Ramblers to larger scaled single-family homes and historic homes along Connecticut Avenue. More than a dozen merchants have opened up or moved to downtown Kensington in the past year to include clothing boutiques, interior design studios, spas, bakeries and restaurants.

Perfect for…
A true sense of community involvement in addition to the tree-lined neighborhoods and historic aspect of this town provide an array of choices for the residents who either want to cozy up in their quiet home with their family for a weekend, or go out and discover what’s happening in town on a whim. Spontaneity is easy when living in a place like this!

Living here…
Along Howard Ave. where Antique Row is located just west of Connecticut Ave. there is a coffee shop, art studio and a Mid-Century Modern furniture shop to add to the long-established antique shops and quirky five & dimes that have long served this area. Community events such as the 4th of July and Labor Day parades, the Christmas Tree & Menorah Lighting, the Town Picnic, the Kensington 8K Race, Third Thursday, the Farmers’ Market, and the free Summer Concert Series at Howard Avenue Park are what attract people to this part of town, and what keeps them there, as well.

Living in a small town that offers the best of modern living with great shopping and dining, yet easy access to the large metropolitan areas of Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Annapolis makes Kensington a wonderful place to live, an interesting place to explore, and a great place to do business.
