More About the Belle Haven Real Estate Market

Are some readers getting the sneaking suspicion that they could be out-priced here? Not to worry—there are some highly affordable condos for sale in this neighborhood. This is actually very true. Apartment-style condos toward the western border start out in the low six figures, climbing all the way to the high six figures for luxury townhomes closer to the water.

But it’s the single-family homes for sale that get the most attention. And while they tend to be very large and gracious, the prices aren’t as staggering as you might expect. You can actually get a lot of house for a million dollars in Belle Haven. There’s even some nice brick ranch-style homes listing in the mid-six figure range. 

There’s not a lot of local retail or restaurants within the neighborhood boundaries but not to worry—if you don’t feel like cooking in your oversized chef’s kitchen, just stop by the County Club Clubhouse and they’ll fix you up a nice plate of surf ‘n turf to take out on the terrace. You do plan on joining the Club, don’t you? To learn more about homes for sale in this affluent community, call District Partners at Compass, (202) 798-3600.
