Friendship Heights Real Estate, Washington DC
Straddling both sides of the Washington, DC/Maryland Border, Friendship Heights has a little something for everyone—grand old Victorian homes, new mixed-used condos for sale and a highly walkable shopping mecca anchored by two malls and blocks of standalone shops along Wisconsin Avenue. What’s lacking these days however, is a large inventory of detached single-family homes for sale—the houses themselves exist, along with wonderful tree-lined streets. But, owners aren’t selling them right now.
This interesting suburb with an urbanized buzz, dates back to an early “friendship grant” handed off to newly arrived colonists back in 1715. Nearly two centuries of farming followed, until a trolley line from Georgetown arrived circa 1900. Suddenly the sleepy village was a boom town with an extended development phase, unhampered by zoning ordinances. Stores, apartment buildings and Sears Roebuck catalog homes (aka Craftsman) were thrown up on newly created lots.
