Biltmore Street's Community Garden in Adams Morgan

Biltmore Street's Community Garden in Adams Morgan

On the corner of 20th and Biltmore Streets in Adams Morgan, there just about the prettiest little community garden in all of Washington. 

What I love about it isn't that it's beautifully manicured and perfect.  It isn't.  And that's what makes it perfect.

After doing a little Googling, I discovered that the Biltmore Triangle Garden has a Facebook page.  There it says that former area resident, Gordon Riggle, designed it in the early 1980s when I lived at the Valley Vista, around the corner.  It has 10 plots that are tended by 8 neighbors.  And the overall effect is sort of wild and gorgeous.

This lovely little park is just one of many things that makes Adams Morgan such an interesting neighborhood and fun place to live.

Currently, there are 8 houses for sale in Adams Morgan, ranging from a low of $735,000 up to $2,300,000 for an amazing home that, in a prior life, was a group house for about a dozen of my public interest worker friends.  That was the '70s. 

If you're thinking of purchasing a condo or coop, there are 79 to choose from.  If you want a small pied-a-terre in a basement of a pretty nice building, there's one for $159,000.  The go up from there to $1,799,000 for a fabulous loft on 18th Street.

If you're interested in a move to this vibrant neighborhood, contact me at 202-549-5167 or housepat@mac.com

Here are some more flowers.
