Southeast Washington, DC Homes and Condos for Sale

The Southeast Washington area is one of four quadrants making up the District of Columbia. The other three include the Northwest, the Northeast, and the Southwest. The Southeast area once represented something of a mixed bag in the real estate market, from better-known neighborhoods like Capitol Hill to more out-of-the-way blue collar communities such as Anacostia on the eastern side of the river that it is named for. However, times are changing, and there has been a huge redevelopment push in waterfront locales, including The Yards, a new upscale urban annex of the Navy Yard.

Although the following is not a complete list of neighborhoods in the Southeast quadrant, it does represent some of the more commonly searched places for condos, houses and townhouses for sale in this part of DC. This sampling includes Anacostia, Capitol Hill, Hill East, Capitol View, Barracks Row, Barney Circle, Stanton Park, Congress Heights, Garfield Heights, Hillcrest, Lincoln Park, Naylor Gardens, Navy Yard, The Yards, the Ballpark District, and Woodland.

Exploring the Southeast Real Estate Market

Capitol Hill is not only the metonym for the United States Congress, but also one of the oldest and most densely populated residential neighborhoods in Washington. You’ll find shops, restaurants, and bars galore, along with a fascinating cross-section of real estate. Homes for sale in the area run the gamut from Victorian townhomes to hip lofts, as well as condo conversions from old schools and commercial buildings. Among some of the better known addresses are Butterfield House, Bryan School Lofts, and Landmark Lofts.

Hill East is exactly as the name implies, the section of Capitol Hill lying further east and closer to the SE waterfront area. There are also smaller neighborhoods within Hill East, such as Barney Circle with its popular two-level porch-front townhouses, as well as Barracks Row with its row houses and store fronts. The legendary Eastern Market is also in this area, a public market with both indoor and outdoor vendors, housed in an expansive 19th century brick building.

The Potomac River splits left as it hits the southern portion of DC, branching west with the parallel Washington Channel. The Anacostia River assumes the right portion of the “Y” shape, hugging the southeastern banks. You’ll find the Navy Yard and two newly developed communities, The Yards and the Ballpark District, on the western side of the Anacostia River. The Navy Yard was once the site of the nation’s oldest military shipyard, and now maintains a smaller presence including the Navy’s administrative facilities.

In recent years, a concerted redevelopment push has resulted in a complete makeover of the area, with the new Washington Nationals Park for MLB, Canal Park, Riverwalk Trail, and many other attractions including popular shops and restaurants, and outdoor events at The Bullpen at Half Street Fairgrounds. This successful new plan to expand the District’s live, work and play footprint includes new luxury condos like Kennedy on the L, Avidian, eNvy, and The Bower.

The real estate market east of the Anacostia River hasn’t traditionally received the same attention as neighborhoods on the western banks. That’s slowly changing due to the competitive prices for east side single-family homes, townhouses, and condos. Anacostia itself was once named Uniontown and was home to numerous shipyard workers. Lately, Anacostia and nearby communities like Fairlawn, Hillcrest, Congress Heights, and Woodland, are seeing an increased amount of new development.

The Barry Farm redevelopment will ultimately be a ground-up remake of the historic 34-acre community, resulting in new upscale apartment rentals, condos, and townhouses for sale. Other projects in the planning or construction phase include 2255 Martin Luther King, a six-story condo building in Hilldale, Poplar Point at Anacostia Metro, and District Towns at St. Elizabeth’s East in Congress Heights. It’s all part of the overall residential expansion in Southeast Washington.
