Apex Note: This blog is part of a series we're doing with some of our real estate partners spotlighting some of the great communities in our area! Thanks to Pat Messett with Re/Max Town Center for this great piece on Rock Creek Manor in Rockville, MD.
An out-of-town client recently asked me about the Rock Creek Manor neighborhood. As I was discussing the area with her, I realized how valuable this community is! Learn about the neighborhood’s history, location, and real estate in this blog.
The Rock Creek Manor subdivision has been around since the mid-1960s, and the single-family homes within it were designed by architect Herman York. When the DiMao brothers later began building the homes, they were already recognized as upscale: hardwood floors were standard, and the carpet floors in them were the upgraded version. They were advertised as located “...in the heart of Wheaton, bordered by Rock Creek Park.” The community was also advertised for it’s location, “within walking distance to elementary, junior, and high schools and convenient to every church.” The Community is bounded on the west and south by Rock Creek Park, to the north by Route 28, and to the east by Bauer Drive.
When Rock Creek Manor was first built, there were exclusively single-family homes available. There were four styles of models:
The Aspen: A two level rancher/rambler
The Boxwood: A two level split foyer
The Dalewood: A modified split level
The Chestnut; A four/five level split with up to five bedrooms (I actually live in this model!)
Since the community has expanded, 44 townhomes have been added, and the community center has grown immensely. Today, the shopping center includes a Safeway, CVS, Starbucks, dry cleaners, wine and beer store and several excellent restaurants and shops. Everything you need is conveniently located right by your home!
