Chevy Chase

To many residents of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, Chevy Chase is almost synonymous with Maryland. But this definition only describes one half of a larger community.

Chevy Chase, D.C. was developed in conjunction with Chevy Chase, M.D. Both were part of the vision shared by Senator Francis Newlands and William Stewart, who foresaw the future value of land northwest of the nation’s Capitol. The two men bought thousands of acres of land along modern day Connecticut Avenue, and transferred the rights to their Chevy Chase Land Company.

The development of Chevy Chase, D.C. mirrored the growth of metropolitan communities in Arlington and Alexandria in the late 1800s. From farmland to suburb, the electric streetcar bolstered and encouraged the evolution of Chevy Chase, D.C. and beyond. Today, the community strikes a balance between capitol delights and suburban serenity, reaffirming the original intentions of its planners.

Quality of Life:

Housing stock reflects the community’s progressive trend, from pasture to parceled lots. Sears homes, colonials, capes and contemporary styles are all represented here. There are apartments and condominiums as well.

Rock Creek Park provides plenty for residents seeking an outdoor fix. The Chevy Chase Recreation Center features a Little League baseball field, basketball courts and playground. There are numerous restaurants and boutique eateries throughout the area. 

Getting Around

There is no metro line that runs directly through Chevy Chase, D.C. however, there are several buses including: M4, L1, L2, L4 E2, E3, E4 and E6 that run up and down Connecticut Avenue. The metro is also accessible on foot or car at either Tenleytown—AU or Van Ness—UDC stations. These stops are on the Red line.
