Neighborhood Information

 

We don’t want to be biased but…we’re biased.  Living in the city proper means you can ditch the car, walk to nightlife and never see a strip mall again.  We focus almost exclusively on DC rentals so if suburban living is your style, we’ll have to offer you a referral!
 

Believe it or not, DC is a small town for the urban dweller.  Little neighborhoods like Dupont Circle, Columbia Heights, Mount Pleasant, Capitol Hill, Adams Morgan and Shaw offer city elegance, and a sense of community at once.  There is no disputing our capital city is uber charming.  So which part of town do you want to nest in?

Here is a little detail on a few of the great neighborhoods in DC and links to what the city has to offer.  Of course, we’ll be happy to give you a personal tour if you would like to nest with us!

One of Washington’s best-kept secrets this neighborhood is just north of Columbia Heights proper where residents enjoy a sense of community, the local coffee shop is where the whole neighborhood has brunch and kids play in the street. Larger row houses, Sears kit homes, bungalows and huge Colonials grace the three syllable streets. Throw in huge public parks and a convenient location between Silver Spring, Maryland and Downtown Washington, DC and this is a neighborhood that’s hard to beat. Walk to Columbia Heights but leave the hustle and bustle behind. Click here to learn more!

Petworth - $ - $$

For the urban pioneer, Petworth became a destination about 6 years ago.  Blocks to the Georgia Ave. greenline stop, Petworth is starting to offer some of the city amenities urban dwellers love, but with price tags and spaces that are unbeatable.  You can rent a whole house for what a 1 bedroom in the heart of Adams Morgan will set you back.  Boring? No! This neighborhood isn’t going unnoticed by businesses.  Trendy little bars and organic markets are defintely staking a claim in this great neighborhood.  Not to mention the great community feel.

Georgetown - $$$$$

 
One of the most famous neighborhoods in DC (or dare we say the world!). The backdrop for the famous movie the Exorcist, Georgetown is also home to Georgetown Cupcakes which TLC made super trendy (right along with the rest of the retail corridor on Wisconsin and M). Home to Georgetown University and just one bridge from Roselyn, VA this area has incredibly charming (and small) turn of the century row house and mansions alike. Rumor has it, the residents of Georgetown rejected the metro when it was still being built so public transportation (along with parking) isn’t as convenient as one might like but the bennies are hard to beat. Shopping is top notch, the waterfront is accessible on foot and that makes the pedestrian perks almost impossible to beat! Click here to learn more!

 

Logan Circle - $$$$$ 

When Whole Foods opened on P Street in 2000 that was a game changer for Logan Circle. Situated just east of Dupont circle this gorgeous area never enjoyed the attention, fetched the prices or had the reputation of it’s neighbor to the west. Today, Logan is home to great restaurants, arts venues like Studio Theater, and some of the hottest housing accommodations in the city. With the 14th Street corridor exploding with growth, Logan acts as a residential anchor that is just minutes to downtown (and to Dupont!). For the money, anyone can live the good life in Logan but bargains are rare now that it enjoys super status as one of the most established neighborhoods in the city. Loganites also love Whole Foods, it’s the busiest store in the country! Click here to learn more!
