Naples Manor, a small subdivision just north of the Intercounty Connector, was open fields dotted with cows and bulls only 30 years ago. The area eventually was sold to a developer who began putting houses up on the eastern portion of the land, known as Stonegate, in the 1960s. Enclosed by Bonifant Road to the south and New Hampshire Avenue to the east, the neighborhood expanded to the west in the 1980s, adding 378 houses to the little community known as Naples Manor. The two subdivisions for the most part function as one neighborhood, but the houses in Naples Manor are much newer, larger and more modern than most of the houses in Stonegate, many of which are now nearly 50 years old. Naples Manor residents are welcome to belong to the Stonegate Citizens Association, but Naples Manor also has its own homeowners’ association ($100 per year) which enforces subdivision rules.
Kelly Washington, president of the Stonegate Citizens Association and a police officer, moved to Stonegate in 1972, long before Naples Manor was built. Washington attended Stonegate Elementary, which serves all of Stonegate and Naples Manor, as did his children, who also went to White Oak Middle and James Hubert Blake High. “We were very happy with the schools”.
The student body at Stonegate Elementary is diverse, with a third of the students being white, a third African American and the final third split fairly evenly between Latinos and Asians. “The area is a lot more diverse than when I got here,” Washington said. Proficiency scores in reading hover around 95 percent for all years; math is basically at the same level until 5th grade, when it falls to 70 percent.
A number of families in the neighborhood send their children to the Barrie School, a nearby private pre-K through grade 12 school where tuition starts at $14,500 and goes up to $27,000 per year, depending on the age of the child. Stonegate Elementary feeds into White Oak Middle, along with Broad Acres, Jackson Road and Westover, the first two of which have a free lunch rate of more than 70 percent. Reading and math proficiency scores at White Oak start out lower (reading, 75 percent and math, 81 percent) and decline each successive year.
Scores rise again when the students get to James Hubert Blake High School, walking distance from Stonegate. Proficiency rates here hover around 90 percent, and the school offers honors and AP classes and a fine arts and humanities program. The western portion of the neighborhood backs up to Northwest Branch Park, 680 acres of preserved open space. Encompassed within the park are the National Capital Trolley Museum and the Northwest Branch Golf Course.
The Trolley Museum, a favorite of children and adults, offers rides on streetcars on the weekends, and its buildings display a variety of streetcar memorabilia. The golf course, operated by the county, has 27 holes – a nine-hole course for a quick round and a full traditional 18-hole course as well. The facility also has 41 lighted stalls, 20 of them covered and heated for those die-hard golfers who are loath to let weather get in the way of practice.
Stonegate Park, adjacent to the northern part of Naples Manor, houses a playground, basketball court and tennis courts. The facility’s large athletic fields are often the site of pickup soccer games, Frisbee games, and families flying kites. A big draw in the neighborhood is Stonegate Swim Club, which offers a competitive swim team, high dive, kiddie pool, volleyball, Ping-Pong, gas grills and gazebos. Fees at the private pool, which has a waiting list for membership, are $485 per year per family.
Within two miles of the neighborhood are a Safeway and Giant. Other stores in the Cloverly Village Shopping Center – a strip mall – include a liquor store, gas station, takeout restaurants, a Starbucks and a hair salon. Farther south at New Hampshire and Randolph Road is another strip mall with a Giant grocery store, Dunkin Donuts, Citibank and gas stations. A little farther east on Colesville Road/Columbia Pike/Route 29 are more options, including Sears, Target, Kohl’s, Super Fresh and more.
Washington says the commute from Naples Manor to D.C. via New Hampshire Avenue can be rough, depending on what time you go. The recent addition of the ICC is a help to those traveling east or west, though the noise from the highway can be bothersome to residents. Washington said the sound barriers currently in place were tested before the road was opened to traffic, and they have proved inadequate. An effort is under way to correct the problem.
Fifteen houses were sold in the last year in Naples Manor, with the average price being $556,500. The lowest-priced house at $375,000 was a potential short sale, and the next-lowest-priced house at $450,000 was a foreclosure. The highest-priced house went for $689,999. Many houses in Naples Manor were on the market for only a week or two. A handful lingered longer – one for 45 days, one for 77, one for 118 and another for 333.
Most of the houses have four bedrooms, some have five. Almost all have garages and fireplaces, and most have between two and four full baths. Acreage is in the one-third range. Most of the houses are colonials, but a few split levels and ranches are mixed in. Washington said he likes his neighborhood. “Overall, crime-wise, it’s very low,” he said. “It’s a very diverse neighborhood, and the schools are good.”
