Kensington real estate is located two miles north of the beltway along Connecticut Avenue. Kensington real estate owners enjoy a wide selection of amenities, thanks to the city’s notably large business district boasting more than 300 retailers. One of the most popular is the Saturday morning Farmer’s Market, which attracts visitors and Kensington real estate owners alike during the warmer months. Another is the well-preserved Kensington Historic District, featuring a Victorian-era garden that was laid out in the late 1800s and remains mostly unchanged today. Kensington real estate is also home to the Noyes Library for Young Children, a popular historic landmark.

The city is considered a bedroom community of Washington, D.C., making Kensington real estate popular with commuters. Families are also attracted to Kensington real estate; the city’s students are served by three elementary schools, two middle schools, and three high schools.
