Massachusetts Ave Heights Real Estate, Washington DC

If you have an insatiable appetite for outrageously expensive Washington, DC neighborhoods, here’s one more. Massachusetts Avenue Heights is home to the Washington National Cathedral and is tucked into a smallish triangle of land immediately north of Observatory Circle and the Naval Observatory where the Vice-President of the United States lives. There are not a lot of homes for sale to choose from. But do you want one anyway?

Let’s start at the top with a recently listed brand-new contemporary seven-bedroom custom home for sale, designed by renowned architect Travis Price. This abstract creation with jutting window-walled rooms was on the market for just $10 million! Not into modernism? How about a classic 11-bedroom Mediterranean villa built in 1927 for $9.8 million? Or an ivy-covered stone Tudor home abutting Woodland-Normanstone Terrace Park? Built in 1933, this exquisitely restored property features magnificent fireplaces and hand-hewn beamed ceilings, and was listed at $7.5 million.

Of course, we can't guarantee these crazy party pads will still be available when you read this post. But they are certainly indicative of the luxury properties the neighborhoods is known for.

Massachusetts Avenue Heights Neighborhood Information

Still not sold? Look, do you want to live next door to the Vice President or don’t you? Plus, Mass Avenue Heights features the towering National Cathedral along with its St. Albans private school for boys, the affiliated National Cathedral School and Beauvoir—the cathedral’s elementary school. There aren’t any restaurants in the immediate neighborhood but who needs to go out to eat when you can simply host a catered dinner party on your impeccably manicured lawn?

For savvy bargain hunters looking for less expensive options in Massachusetts Avenue Heights, there are condos for sale that come to market now and then—like a 2,000 square-foot one-bedroom unit at Shoreham West on Calvert Street with a million dollar price tag. Or, a three-bedroom unit in the same building for $1.8 million. You are encouraged by these cost cutters, correct? 

All jesting aside, this is a charming neighborhood with quiet tree-lined streets and a variety of architectural styles. And if you ask the secret service agents really nicely, maybe they’ll let you carpool to work with the nation’s VP. To learn more about homes, condos and townhouses for sale in the area, call District Partners at Compass at (202) 798-3600.
