Colonial Village Real Estate, Washington DC
Quite a number of years ago in an article for the Washington Post, a writer waggishly posed the question—what’s the difference between Colonial Village and Rock Creek Park? The answer, was that there are houses in Colonial Village. That still pretty much sums up this small, peaceful suburban community in northwestern DC, except that real estate for sale in Colonial Village is now exponentially pricier.
Located at the northwestern tip of Washington DC, this small residential community of winding hills, tall leafy Oak trees and million dollar homes blends seamlessly into the aforementioned park—said park taking up the entire southwestern portion of the neighborhood. Here residents enjoy jogging or walking the dog or pushing strollers or all three rolled together. There’s also a sizable white-tail deer population which, depending on your frame of mind, can be either a nuisance or a beautiful thing.

Colonial Village Neighborhood Information
This area dates all the way back to a land grant given to early colonist Sir George Calvert—the Lord Baltimore—way back in 1629. And while the neighborhood itself wasn’t residentially subdivided until the early 1930s, it was named and styled in keeping with its origins—that of a Colonial Village, complete of course, with stately Colonial homes for sale. The neighborhood has evolved to some extent over the years with architectural styles including Cape Cod, Tudor and even some striking mid-century modern designs with low flat roofs and angular lines.
Colonial Village's neighbors include Rock Creek Gardens and Shepherd Park to the south, and Silver Spring across the Maryland border to the north.
