Kenwood Park, a sprawling neighborhood in the center of Bethesda, has a reputation of achievement. Its collection of cherry trees, magnificent and tranquil, is the locals alternative to the District’s tourist-filled, more bustling affair in the tidal basin during blossom season. Walt Whitman High School has been ranked as the top high school in Maryland and often lands in the middle of top high schools nationwide.
Kenwood Park also has some rather astounding real estate statistics. It is almost entirely owner occupied and has one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. It also has the distinction of having more homes with four or more bedrooms than 99% of neighborhoods nationwide. The vast majority of its real estate is detached single-family homes and the average lot size is over a quarter-acre.
