Wheaton Woods is a neighborhood in Aspen Hill, Maryland.

It is also the legal name of the Wheaton Woods subdivision. The subdivision is significantly larger than the neighborhood.

Description

It is characterized by Single Family Detached Residential houses generally built in the early 1950s through the late 1950s.

The Wheaton Woods neighborhood comprises parts (or the entirety) of several subdivisions. As well as part of the Wheaton Woods subdivision and part of the Brookhaven and part of the Stoneybrook Estates subdivision, Wheaton Woods comprises the entirety of the Robindale and Royal View subdivisions.

Location

The Wheaton Woods neighborhood lies west of Matthew Henson State Park and Turkey Branch Parkway, east of Magellan Avenue, south of Aspen Hill Road, and north of Veirs Mill Road.
