Crestwood Neighborhood Information

While Crestwood dates back to a 300-acre single-owner estate that was purchased in 1720, residential subdividing didn’t begin until the early 1900s. Those hoping for condos for sale may be disappointed—the only multifamily properties are a single apartment building and some row houses on the eastern boundary of 16th Street. These porch-front brick residences were built in the 1920s and are typically grouped in fours, with red-tile Mansard roofs and dormers. 

What To Do Around DC's Crestwood

Inside the community is the Carter Barron Amphitheatre featuring live performances, as well as the Rock Creek Park Tennis Center and its famous William H.G.
