Of all of DC's neighborhoods, Forest Hills may be the most aptly named. Its very hilly and abuts Rock Creek Park, Washington's closest thing to a real forest. And within the neighborhood itself, there is a beautiful canopy of mature trees framing it's impressive residences.
While Forest Hills is quiet, its western border is Connecticut Avenue, with interesting restaurants (Bucks Fishing and Camping is one of my favorites), Washington's most interesting book store, Politics and Prose, along with gourmet take out, great wine (being able to walk to Calvert Woodley Wine and Spirits is a huge plus, and much of the neighborhood is an easy walk to the Van Ness Metro Station.
And Forest Hills is full of posh homes, with architectural styles ranging from Tudor to ultra contemporary. While most of the homes are in the mansion range, there are some modest mid-century properties on the northern end of the neighborhood.
Currently, there are ten homes for sale in Forest Hills, ranging from a low of $990,000 for a 3-bedroom bungalow on Brandywine Street, to ahigh of $4.7 million for a renovated home on over a half acre lot overlooking Tilden Street.
