Cleveland Park Luxury Real Estate

Cleveland Park is in the northwestern part of DC, with neighbors that include both North Cleveland Park and Van Ness to the north, Rock Creek Park to the east, Woodley Park to the south, and Cathedral Heights to the west. The Smithsonian National Zoo is also immediately adjacent, as a southernmost part of Rock Creek Park. Once farmland and known initially as Pretty Prospects and then Rosedale, the area ultimately became a streetcar suburb with the arrival of an electric streetcar along Connecticut Avenue in the 1890s. Today, the neighborhood is served by the Cleveland Park Metro station with Red Line service.

More About Cleveland Park, Washington, DC

Locals have been known to refer to their cherished community as a village within a city. It’s actually a time-honored tradition, dating back to a bygone era when wealthy merchants from Georgetown would build summer homes in Cleveland Park where the elevation is higher and the climate cooler. When the July and August heat became too unbearable, Georgetown residents would simply load up their horses and carriages and head up the hill via what is now Wisconsin Avenue, to their leafy getaways. It wasn’t just the merchant class; the neighborhood is named for Grover Cleveland who also had a summer retreat during his tenure as U.S. President.

Flash forward to modern times, and Cleveland Park retains a note of grace and gentility. That said, there have been seismic changes in the real estate market since those lazy summer days of old. Not only have home prices been heading into the stratosphere, the types of housing have also evolved. While a sizeable portion of the community between Wisconsin and Connecticut Avenues is now a historic district, newer construction has emerged in areas to the north and south. The luxury real estate market also includes grand old apartment buildings along Connecticut and Wisconsin that have converted to condos and cooperatives.
