Amazing Cleveland Park House For Sale: 3140 Highland Place NW

Amazing Cleveland Park House For Sale: 3140 Highland Place NW

If I were to get a call today asking me to show a client the best value in Cleveland Park, I would immediately call Washington Fine Property's Ann Hatfield Weir to make arrangements to show her listing at 3140 Highland Place NW.  The sellers have just reduced the price on this home to $1,950,000.

Highland Place is a charming street that brings you back to the turn of the last century.  Ann's listing is a charming Victorian that dates back to at least 1901, and has four levels of beautifully restored space.  The old architectural details are still there, coupled with completely updated systems. 

You are greeted by a wrap-around front porch that would be a perfect place to sip mint juleps on a sunny day.  As I walked through the front door, I was struck by how beautiful the old pine floors looked and by the period lighting fixtures - they looked just one step ahead of gaslights.

The updated kitchen has high end appliances and a very funcitonal layout.  And all 3 1/2 baths looked like they had been recently renovated. 

Highland Place is right off of Newark Street, and a short walk to the shops and restaurants along Connecticut Avenue. And the corner Metro station makes it easy to commute to and from work.

This is one of twelve Cleveland Park homes that are currently for sale.  The prices range from a low of $799,000 for a small row house on 35th Street, to a high of $3,495,000 for a 7-bedroom Queen Ann on Newark Street. 

If you would like more information on any other Cleveland Park house for sale, please contact me at 202-549-5167 or email me at  If you are ready to make a move, I can help.
