Wesley Heights Real Estate, Washington DC
For those who like their master-planned communities mixed with a little history, there’s Wesley Heights—now closing in on its centennial. This uber-wealthy enclave can be found in Washington, DC’s Northwest quadrant, just east of the Palisades. With parkland wrapping around the east, south and west, the neighborhood has a very secluded feel and features attractive luxury homes and condos for sale.
This area was all rural farmland, until W.C. and A.N. Miller developed it in the 1920s. It was one of the nation’s very first planned communities and remains as one of the most successful. It is listed in the Higley 1000 as being the second-richest neighborhood in the District (behind Spring Valley) and one of the richest in the nation. It’s worth noting that the Millers also developed American University Park and Spring Valley, both of which lie just to the north.

Wesley Heights Neighborhood Information
Real estate in Wesley Heights doesn’t have the feel of a typical master-planned community. For all intents and purposes, it is much like its suburban neighbors with quiet tree-lined streets and three surrounding parks—Grover Archbold, Wesley Heights and Battery Kemble. Cue the happily chirping birds and wandering woodland creatures. And that’s just how all the diplomats, financiers and university board members like it—a peaceful respite from the complicated work day.
What To Do in Wesley Heights - Washington DC
