I’m gonna be honest – I posted this one because I had no idea there was a Unicorn Lane in DC…

    Quackenbos is still my fave.

    The concrete unicorns they have at the entrance to that development are pure ’80s kitsch.

    • Wow. You were not kidding. I had to street view it to see. That’s both hilarious and depressing.

    Oh heavens no thank you. From street view, it’s unimpressive and doesn’t really get better from there, alas.

    1980s. That is all.

    The rooms are a nice size and I like the hardwood, but the bathrooms are godawful, the kitchen isn’t much better, and some of the floors are horrendous (ahem, entry way). I’m trying to look past the 80’s furniture, although those floral dining room chairs make it REALLY tough. It just doesn’t have much character – the rooms seem like big, bland boxes.

    “Minutes to Tenley” is quite an exaggeration. It’s 2.5 miles to the Metro – most of it uphill.

    • It’s probably closer to Silver Spring Metro than Tenleytown.

      I drive past this neighborhood all of the time, but had never ventured into it. I agree that the house is blah. It’s also hard to see past the hideous dining room furniture.

    What a bizarre little neighborhood that I never knew about!

    i used to live near here. i actually think it’s a great little pocket of DC. it’s not transit accesible, but if you bike, or drive, it’s okay. not greatly convenient to much, but not horrible either. if you have kids it’s really great. theres a still running Victory Garden nearby. the park here is awesome and very quiet. horseback riding, the planetarium, trails, good schools.

    Its easy to forget that this part of DC exists! I went through this neighborhood once and actually saw 3 deer in the yard of one of these homes! Even more unusual than this neighborhood is the one right north of it “Oregon Knolls Dr” actually feels like (to me) as if I was actually in Oregon (as the street name suggests).

  • This neighborhood has all the charm of a complex of WW2 bunkers. Throwing up some unicorn statues at the gate is the new “lipstick on a pig.”
