Why Cleveland Park Real Estate is Coveted
As a designated historic district, located in Upper Northwest DC, Cleveland Park features numerous restored homes from the 1800s and 1900s. Houses in Cleveland Park include everything from fairly modest 19th and 20th century homes to mansions and embassies, many of which are filled with historical significance. Architectural styles common to the area include Georgian Revival, Queen Anne, Mission Revival, Sherman Cottages, Victorians, Foursquares and Dutch Colonial Revivals. Some historical homes, such as Rosedale and Twin Oaks, date back to the 1790s. Many popular landmarks, including an art deco structure from 1936, The Uptown Theatre, the 1916 firehouse and the Rosedale Conservancy, can also be found in the Cleveland Park community.
While all of Cleveland Park is filled with beautiful historic homes, some of the finest estates in the neighborhood can be found on Ordway, Porter, Lowell, Newark and Macomb streets. A number of large century-old single family homes and rowhouses can also be found around the community’s most popular landmark, the Washington National Cathedral. The area around the cathedral from Fulton Street to Woodley Road and Wisconsin Avenue serves as a sub-neighborhood known as Cathedral Heights.
Home Prices in Cleveland Park? They vary but anywhere frm the low one millions to multi-million is a fair start. Those homes that are "rich" in architecture and are located on large lots generally cost between $2 million and $6 million. Prices do vary considerably within the neighborhood depending upon the architectural...

Real Estate'd By Gretchen Koitz
It’s inevitable...Every four years, as the Presidential election approaches (or sometimes, even months in advance), we start hearing from clients in our Washington, DC area marketplace. They want to know how the election will impact the local housing market -- especially if they perceive that there is going to be a change in Administrations**. Many ask this question because they are thinking they can “time” sales of their homes to match what they perceive to be an increase in of buyers brought on by the election. It's a great question - one in the not too distant past, was one that deserved more market research.
DC Metro Real Estate Post Election Trends In Today's Market
Today, however the answer is pretty simple: The election (even if it results in the change of Administrations**) does not have much of an impact on our housing market. As Kevin says, there's a small ripple in the luxury market but no where else do there seem to be breadcrumbs of evidence. The reason is that most members of Congress no longer relocate their families to the Washington DC. It has become too expensive to maintain two residences. Most Congress people and Senators travel back to their homes practically every weekend. Some rent apartments close to the Capital, while others have been known to sleep in a cot in their offices.
It was not uncommon, in the “good old days” for all 435 Member of Congress and all 100 Senators to own DC area homes...this is just no longer true. ...

Premier Washington DC Luxury Real Estate
Washington DC is home to many extraordinary neighborhoods. But when it comes to living in luxury in the DC area, there are four neighborhoods which always seem to be at or near the top of everyone's lists: Woodley Park, Cleveland Park, Georgetown and Kalorama. Not only are the homes, grand townhomes and coops in these neighborhoods filled with wonderful amenities and sometimes historic architectural details, but their owners enjoy easy access to a number of fine restaurants and shopping opportunities as well as to some of the country's most significant landmarks. (picture below:Georgetown, DC townhomes)
1. Woodley Park
Straddling Connecticut Avenue, which is one of DC's main thoroughfares, Woodley Park is one of the most established and popular residential areas in the capital city. This unique community, which features a number of historic homes, can also offer a surprising level of solitude, considering that it is only minutes away from several active retail and entertainment districts. This peace and quiet is made possible partially by the existence of the 117-year-old National Zoo, which features conservation land covering more than 163 treed acres,and is located to the east of the neighborhood.
2. Cleveland Park
Named in honor of Grover Cleveland, the Cleveland Park neighborhood is an attractive residential area that is still brimming with New England charm. In fact, a number of 19th and 20th century homes, embassies and mansions can still be found throughout...
