American University Park Real Estate, Washington DC

Homes for sale aren’t really in abundance in American University Park compared to other Washington DC neighborhoods—eager buyers have descended like locusts to snap up available listings in recent years. That doesn’t mean there’s no available properties at all—just fewer than before. This lovely suburban enclave butts up against the Maryland border at Washington, DC’s northernmost reaches, offering large homes on quiet streets lined with towering oak trees, plus a sprinkling of condos for sale.

Although associated by name with the prestigious American University, the college itself is actually next door in Spring Valley. That’s okay—the American University neighborhood in Washington DC is still home to tweedy college regents, along with diplomats, financiers and other ordinary folk who enjoy sharing the occasional libation as important events of the day are bandied about. If all this sounds too stuffy for your taste, take heart—an influx of new residents in recent years has actually resulted a new vibrancy, complete with moms pushing strollers and tousled-headed grad students playing Frisbee golf at the park.

American University Park Neighborhood Information

AAU as it’s commonly referred to, was once farmland and has one of the highest elevations in the District of Columbia. Residential subdividing began in the late 1920s with a noticeable development boom over the following decade. Homes built prior to World War II account for the majority of properties, with architecture tending toward all things Colonial—from stately columned affairs to boxy brick homes and even Dutch subsets. You’ll also find some late Victorian, Tudor and Cape Cods here and there.

More About American University Real Estate

Homes for sale in American University Park tend to be priced from the high six figures to over a million dollars. There are some exceptions to the rule, especially when it comes to condos for sale. Don’t be expecting huge price reductions however—these residences, which exist mostly on the neighborhood’s borders, tend to be luxury affairs, including Cityline at Tenley where one-bedroom units start around $400,000.

AAU is similar to nearby neighborhoods like Chevy Chase, North Cleveland Park and Spring Valley—upscale havens that are popular with those who work in the urban bustle but crave quiet relaxation during their downtime. Homes for sale here typically have a higher median price than those on the other side of the Maryland border but that’s part of the cost of upscale suburban living within the Washington, DC boundaries.
