Northwest Washington, DC Homes and Condos for Sale
Representing perhaps the largest real estate market in the District, the Northwest Washington area extends north from the National Mall, all the way to the Maryland border, and west from the Potomac River to North Capitol Street. You’ll find many of DC’s popular residential neighborhoods within this particular quadrant. From urban rowhouses to luxury condos and single-family homes for sale, the Northwest area has it all. The other three quadrants in DC include Northeast Washington, the Southwest Washington region which includes the new District Wharf development, and Southeast Washington along the Anacostia River.
It would take a page to list all of the communities within the Northwest bounds so do not fret if you don’t see your favorite neighborhood mentioned here. But a sampling would include Georgetown, West End, Foggy Bottom, Dupont Circle, Logan Circle, Downtown, Mount Vernon Triangle, Penn Quarter, U Street Corridor, Adams Morgan, Kalorama, Columbia Heights, Woodley Park, Petworth, The Palisades, Cleveland Park, Chevy Chase, and Friendship Heights.

Zeroing in On DC’s Desirable Neighborhoods
Waterfront communities are always sought-after places to live. In the Northwest DC area, that means neighborhoods along the Potomac River. Heading north along the coastline you’ll find a wide variety of housing types. The iconic Watergate complex in Foggy Bottom offers legendary amenities and some of the best river views in town. Upscale addresses like 3303 Water Street in Georgetown are right by the new Waterfront Park, while The Palisades leans toward lovely single-family homes as well as a lesser number of condominiums. As a neighborhood that predates the founding of DC, Georgetown is also very well known for its historic townhomes and mansions, not to mention an incredible restaurant and shopping scene.
The Downtown area includes numerous neighborhoods that have a close proximity to the White House and the Capitol, as well as landmarks, museums, and high-end dining and shopping. From the Capital One Arena in Chinatown (home to the NBA’s Washington Wizards) to the expansive CityCenterDC with its condos, hotels, shops, and restaurants, this is a lively place for people on the go. As you head east from Downtown, you’ll quickly arrive at Dupont Circle and Logan Circle. These sought-after enclaves are just blocks from Downtown, with amazing restaurants, leafy streets, and a fabulous blend of architecture.
The U Street Corridor is popular with those who like nighttime entertainment and a rich blend of creative culture. Adams Morgan has long been regarded as one of Washington’s trendiest neighborhoods with colorfully painted rowhouses and hipster lofts. Two adjacent neighborhoods have their own unique personalities—Columbia Heights has ascended in popularity in recent years and is also the home Meridian Hill Park, while Kalorama has long been regarded as one of Washington’s most exclusive communities, home to business leaders and numerous past presidents and their extended families.
For those who enjoy a close proximity to greenspaces like the sprawling Rock Creek Park and Glover Archbold Park, residential enclaves like Woodley Park, Cleveland Park, Observatory Circle, Spring Valley, Chevy Chase, and Friendships Heights are highly appealing. You’ll find a number of grand historic addresses stretching along major north/south corridors like Connecticut and Wisconsin Avenues. This bucolic upper northwest corner is also known for gracious single-family homes including Colonial, Victorian, Tudor, and Modern design styles.
