This is prime territory for luxury homes, indeed some of the priciest in the District. The location feels very secluded yet is conveniently close to the city. It’s tucked between the Palisades to the north and Foxhall Village to the south, with the Potomac River and its greenbelt along the western side.

More About Berkley, Washington, DC

Berkley is different from other parts Washington, DC in that it developed at a very leisurely pace over an extended period of time. The neighborhood with its naturally hilly terrain was rural in its early days, with only a few homes built during the early 1900s. That gradually picked up over the following decades with more properties emerging around the neighborhood’s perimeters. There were additional pockets of activity during the 1950s and 1960s, and a larger number of homes filling in the spaces since that time. You can truly find anything from antiques to brand new construction in Berkley

The neighborhood is sometimes erroneously referred to as Foxhall Crescent, this due to the Foxhall Crescent housing subdivision as well as the Foxhall Playground, both existing within Berkley’s boundaries. But Berkley is indeed its own special place, home to the Kreeger Museum, The Field School, and The George Washington University: Mount Vernon Campus. The community also abuts the Georgetown Reservoir, as well as the canal and the Potomac River. With all the surrounding greenery and water, it may seem like a very secluded space. But residents enjoy the peace and quiet, along with local coffee shops, a CVS, mom and pop stores, and some great restaurants.
