My husband and I are looking for a house in the $500K price range in a family friendly neighborhood with a reasonable commute to DC. We currently rent in north Silver spring but are finding that many of the families in our neighborhood are much older than us. Anyone have suggestions of good family friendly neighborhoods in Maryland or Northern VA with Single Family Homes in our price range and neighbors in their 30s? We've looked at Burke, VA but were disappointed in how isolated it was from shops and restaurants. We've considered Arlington, but the houses are expensive and tiny.

I'm in a similar boat as you; the more closer in neighborhoods of Silver Spring tend to have younger families compared to the outer areas. The 20901 & 20910 zips are probably good places to start. From what I've observed, the neighborhoods of Woodmoor, Forest Glen, Woodside, and Four Corners area is SS would fit the bill. You should also check out areas in Rockville and Kensington as well.

For VA, have you looked in Alexandria or perhaps Falls Church? I know what you mean about Burke, it's a fairly nice area but doesn't have as much retail or restaurants compared to neighboring areas.

Good luck.
