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.
