Old Brunett House in Silver Spring
North Hills of Sligo is a beautiful neighborhood of some of the finest older single family homes in Silver Spring. 

Set into the heavily wooded hills of  Sligo Creek Park (thus the name) this subdivision of Single Family Homes built during the early 1930's to late 1940's is located "inside the Capitol Beltway", close to Downtown Silver Spring and Washington, DC. 

The subdivision of North Hills was originally sold as a suburban Neighborhood with large lots "overlooking 2 golf courses".  The two golf courses were at Argyle Country Club (what is  left of the Argyle Golf Course is now  Sligo Golf Course) and Indian Spring Country Club (what's left of Indian Spring is now the YMCA property) 

Considered a Landmark - The original Brunett Farmhouse (circa 1864) that preceded the development of North Hills, still stands today on an impressive 3/4 acre lot at the top of a Entrance to North Hills - Silver Springhill in the North Hills Subdivision.

A detailed book about the history of North Hills of Sligo Creek was written by Sally Gagne in 2003.  This 190 page book titled "North Hills of Sligo Creek - History, People and Surroundings", is not only about the history of the North Hills area, but everything you'd really like to know about Silver Spring from it's development right down to the people that lived here before and that live here now.  Sally is also an expert on Sligo Creek Park., from how it began up to current wild inhabitants and vegetation.

The Parkside Headquarters are just at the edge of the Community in the park.  There are miles and miles of Trails for Hiking, Biking, Fitness, Dog walking and just nature watching!  The park also offers picnic areas, ball fields, tennis courts, basketball courts and many playgounds.

This is such a convenient area for anyone working in D.C. or any point that can be reach by the Beltway.  And I love the charm of these neighborhoods.
