Convenience Of Privacy & Proximity

Massachusetts Avenue Heights

The Massachusetts Avenue Heights neighborhood in Washington, DC may fly under the real estate radar to some extent, but there is no denying that it features some of the most commanding luxury properties in the District. Small in size, the hilly enclave is home to the grounds of the Washington National Cathedral, north of Observatory Circle and west of the Woodley Park neighborhood. Only a portion of the community is residential, and those homes tend to be large and magnificent, and often crafted of stone. It’s a superb place to live for those who cherish privacy, while still being conveniently close to the downtown corridors of power.

More About Massachusetts Avenue Heights, Washington, DC

While the neighborhood has an unmistakably reserved and refined atmosphere, it is not that far from amenities, including popular restaurants and bakeries along Wisconsin Avenue just a few blocks south of Massachusetts Avenue. The Washington National Cathedral is surrounded by the Cathedral Close, a 59-acre sanctuary of lovely grounds including the Bishop’s Garden that is open to the public daily. Also of note is the affiliated National Cathedral School, the St. Albans High School for boys, and Beauvoir, the National Cathedral Elementary School.

Given the small size of the neighborhood, the active real estate inventory can be limited in quantity, although certainly not in quality. Home lean toward Tudor, Georgian, and Mediterranean, typical in stone or brick. However, there are other luxury styles as well, often tucked behind tall hedges and ivy.

There are even some modern and contemporary homes designed by prestigious architects. Upscale condominiums play a role as well, primarily in grand old buildings along Wisconsin and Massachusetts Avenues, along the fringe of the community. However, it is the luxurious estates and manors that best exemplify the rarefied residential presence in this prestigious oasis.
