Situated just outside the beltway on the northwest end of the D.C. metro area, the historic neighborhood of Kensington, Maryland is a good choice for those who are interested in living in a quiet neighborhood that is conveniently close to D.C. amenities. With the community founded in the 1890s by developer Brainard Warner, the Victorian style and attractive layout of Kensington was inspired after Warner took a trip to London. Thanks to the wide selection of homes available in Kensington coupled with the beautiful park-like setting, the neighborhood quickly became a popular summer home destination for D.C. residents. Today, the community stands on its own as a beautiful upscale community that is perfect for year-round living.
