So you may not be able to rent out a sprawling Spanish eclectic or a grand Tudor, but you do have a selection of solidly built, mid-century Cape Cods, ramblers and apartment buildings. You can also choose from contemporary designs. Being right outside of D.C. city limits, rental houses can go quickly. Have contact info for your rental references, proof of income and a security deposit in order before you apply.
Coral Hills may be small, but it does offer some options when it comes to neighborhoods. Check out the list below to see where you'd like to live.
West: The corner of coral hills that sits between the Washington, D.C. border and Pennsylvania Avenue mostly consists of apartment buildings clustered around the D.C. line. You can also find Cape Cods in this area.
East of Shell Park: The city park separates this section of town, which offers split levels and ranches built in the 1950s and 60s. These homes are bigger and have larger lots than those found closer to the border. The townhouses for rent in this area were built in the early 2000s. Here you'll find Big Papa Pizza and Oriental Express.
North: As in the western area of Coral Springs, north of Marlboro Pike you'll mostly find densely packed Cape Cods. You can also find apartments for rent around Benning Road on the east side of this part of town.
Brook Road Area: Coral Hill's largest plots of land frame Brook Road, the road that runs through the eastern portion of town. There is a mixture of Cape Cods, ramblers and split levels, mostly built in the 50s and 60s. You'll find apartment rentals to the south in the area of Walker Mill road and Marlboro Pike. You can also find newer single-family home developments in the north part of this area.
The town doesn't have a lot of nightlife, but some would say that partying the till the sun comes up is overrated anyway. The town does have a shopping center with a grocery store, fast food joint a pizza and wings place. The M lounge on Marlboro Pike has food, music and drinks. But residents often go elsewhere for their shopping and entertainment. With all the sights and sounds and activities available just across the street in D.C., it doesn't matter too much that there's not a lot to do in Coral Hills. One highlight is Shell Park, where you can enjoy recreational spaces and the views along the Oxon Run Creek. The Brooks Road Recreational Center also has a playground and a large field.
