Much of the real estate in Silver Spring consists of colonial-style homes that were built in the early 20th century. Although these homes maintain their original details, like archways between rooms and hardwood flooring, many of them have been recently renovated to have modern amenities, like chef's kitchens and laundry rooms.
Some of the most charming homes in the area have lovely front porches where you can sit on warm summer evenings or sip your coffee in the mornings. Inside, these homes oftentimes have formal dining and living rooms that are made for hosting holiday events. The kitchens in these homes are made for cooking gourmet meals with their upgraded appliances and spacious countertops.
Growing families are attracted to Silver Springs real estate because there are tons of homes on the market that have three or more bedrooms and bathrooms, giving all residents their own personal spaces.
