What's For Sale in Cleveland Park? December 2013

What's For Sale in Cleveland Park?  December 2013

Here in Washington, DC, Cleveland Park is one of those neighborhoods.  It's got everything that is important - proximity to Metro, restaurants with cuisines from several continents, the National Zoo, a post office, the Uptown Theater, a members-only dog park, and some amazing homes.

The large homes began as summer residences where people of means could get out of the city during the summer, when it was hot, buggy and full of typhoid.  There are Victorians with wide verandas, Queen Anne homes with their decorative trim and wrap around porches.  Then there are some Wardman style row houses.

Right now, there are only four houses for sale in Cleveland Park, ranging in price from a low of $899,000 for a 3-bedroom semi-detached house on Quebec Street NW to a high of $3,495,000  for a 6-bedroom home on 36th Street NW.  

And homes in this popular neighborhood sell quickly - 2 of the 6 homes that are currently under contract flew off the shelf their first day on the market.  

We're hoping to see more offerings after the first of the year.

If you are planning a move to or from the Washington, DC metro area, please call me (202-549-5167) or email me (Housepat@mac.com) before you make any important real estate decisions.
