Silver Spring is located along the north east border of Washington D.C., a sprawling area that was named for a spring with sparkling bits of mica. The eastern arm of the red line serves the four metro stops in Silver Spring, the Silver Spring station, the Forest Glen station, the Wheaton Station and the Glenmont station.
Old Downtown Silver Spring has had an exciting and ongoing renewal, a multi-million dollar facelift that is providing a pedestrian friendly downtown area with shops and restaurants. The American Film Institute theatre, now housed in the historic Silver Spring theatre, the theatre is an internationally recognized, state-of-the-art film and video exhibition center. Silver Spring is about to get a new "State of the Art" Transit Center named after Maryland Senator Paul Sarbanes, who was instrumental in approprating funds for this mammoth project.
The "Close-in" older neighborhoods of Silver Spring with tree lined streets offer homes built in the late 1800's to the 1940's, providing the charm coveted by so many buyers. These older neighborhoods such as Woodside are for the most part within easy walking distance of the downtown Silver Spring metro stop or the Forest Glen stop. There is also some infill and a limited amount of new constrution occuring in Close-in Silver Spring, such as The Courts of Woodside and the Forest Glen Park Area. Also, within the older downtown area are newly constructed chic urban condos, with more still planned and currently under construction.
Further out Colesville Road to Burtonsville and from Georgia Ave to Wheaton there are subdivisions built in the mid 1940's ,1950's and 1960's where architectural styles include ramblers, split levels, colonials and contemporary mid century modern homes. There are newer townhome and condominium developments sprinkled throughout the Greater Silver Spring Area. We have something for everyone in Silver Spring.
Silver Spring's parks have more than just grass and trees. Many include playgrounds, ball fields, basketball courts, tennis courts, picnic areas, trails, ponds, recreation centers or indoor swim centers.
