This Spring-Park home is in an urban and eclectic neighborhood at the nexus DC, Silver Spring and Takoma Park. Two Redline Metro stations are one-mile away--Takoma & Silver Spring. Our community is family oriented and quiet but with all the urban resources you need to easily shop, dine-out, see a movie and more, all within walking distance. We are also walking distance to a tranquil, woodsy park with a lovely hike/bike/jog trail along a creek.
We are a mile from 2 Metro stations and one-half block from a bus that will take you to both stations. The Takoma Station is in DC and cheaper if you're coming from that direction. Silver Spring is the first station in MD from DC and convenient to shops and restaurants. Also the neighborhood is very bike/walkable.

We had a great experience in the house. The temperature was comfortable, even during the coldest February that Maryland has experienced in over a hundred years. Danny shoveled our snow for us, and Gail was so helpful with any needs that we had. We brought our three small children, and they loved playing in the basement.
Danny and Gail were great hosts, and had everything we needed for a great stay.
