Welcome to Carderock Springs

Carderock Springs is a vibrant community located in Bethesda, Maryland, featuring distinctive modern architecture, a mature green landscape, and a community spirit where residents know each other, support our top-performing local schools, and connect with a variety of social activities. Summers are always active at our Clubhouse and Swim & Tennis Club.

Carderock Springs appears on the National Register of Historic Places as a prime example of Mid-Century Modern/Situated Modernism Architecture — a style where modern houses complement and blend in with the natural landscape. Opened in 1962, it's long been featured in consumer and professional publications as an excellent example of both modern design and environmental stewardship. 

If you're modifying the exterior of your home, you'll need approval from the Architectural Review Committee, which has ARC Design GuidelinesCovenants govern all properties. Because the natural environment is so integral to the neighborhood's appeal, we also have Tree Removal Guidelines.


We have welcome info for neighborhood newcomers!

Volunteers Sought for New Neighborhood Traffic Committee

At its meeting of August 21, 2023, the CSCA Board voted unanimously to create a Neighborhood Traffic Committee to address concerns of several residents, ongoing for some time, about speeding, on  Fenway Road, particularly on the hill that spans the 8300 and 8400 blocks of Fenway Road. The Committee will be composed of no more than seven members, with weight given to those on Fenway Road or feeder streets. Once created, this committee will have authority to speak for the community with the County on any proposal regarding installation of speed humps and the location on Fenway Road where such speed humps are proposed to be installed, and can recommend other traffic calming measures to the Board if humps are not approved.

The relevant County Code provisions can be found at COMCOR, Section 49.30.01, “Speed Humps for Residential Streets”: here

Rick Wilson had prepared a background memo 8/18/23 on the proposal to investigate speed humps and the creation of the Traffic Neighborhood Traffic Committee which can be accessed here.  Anyone interested in serving on this committee should contact Rick at rwilson@wcl.american.edu
