Crestwood Real Estate, Washington DC

Comfortably located between Washington, DC’s urban corridors and the northernmost suburbs is Crestwood—a cozy neighborhood surrounded on three sides by Rock Creek Park.

One thing you’ll notice right away when browsing real estate for sale in Crestwood is that there isn’t a large inventory. This isn’t something new—there’s only around 600 residences here and 91 percent of them are detached single-family houses. The blend of architecture is eclectic and varied, with Victorians, boxy brick Colonials, Tudors, Capes, some large Craftsman-styles and even some brick Ramblers and Split-levels from the 1950s to 1960s era.

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.
