Looking for a home near Twinbrook Metro Station?

While we normally consider “walkable” anything within 3/4 of a mile, we expand to 1 mile when talking about neighborhoods “near the metro.”

Keep in mind that unlike a condo building, where you are in a townhome or single-family neighborhood may affect the distance by a tenth of a mile or two, if not more.

Although prices have been steadily rising over the past few years, the Twinbrook area is prepping for a major development overhaul, likely making it even more desirable than today upon its completion.

Here are the main neighborhoods to check out if you’re in search of a single-family home near Twinbrook…

Halpine Village (0.2 miles)

If you want to own a single-family home and be close to the Twinbrook metro, you can’t get any closer than Halpine Village.

In fact, we feel pretty confident this is the absolute closest you can get to ANY metro on the top of the red line if you live in a single-family home.

The majority of Halpinve Village homes were built in the mid 1950’s and 1960’s, long before the Twinbrook metro ever appeared.

Split-levels and split-levels comprise most of the earlier structures while ranchers/ramblers came along a little later.

In recent years, some structures have been torn down and renovated.

Rockland (0.4 miles)

Rockland is a little bit bigger than the Halpine Village area and was also constructed during the mid 1950’s and 1960’s.

The majority of homes here are ranchers/ramblers and as of this writing, you could still purchase one between 400 and 500K.

If you’re looking for a big home, however, these are unlikely to fit your needs.

Total square footage for most of the residences comes in at less than 2,000 square feet, although there are a handful of exceptions.

Twinbrook (0.4 miles)

In addition to being close to the metro, the Twinbrook subdivision itself is absolutely enormous – in the last 20 years, properties have switched hands over 1,000 times.

The Twinbrook area maintains a rich history, with some homes here dating back to the 1940’s – that’s partly why you’ll see such a overwhelming large number of Cape Cods in the area even though they’re difficult to find elsewhere in Rockville/North Bethesda.

Most of the homes here do not have garages, although there are a few exceptions.

If you’re interested in the Twinbrook area, it might also be worth the effort to familiarize yourself with the Twinbrook Community Association.
