Located in the "Foxhall Corridor", Wesley Heights is an affluent D.C. neighborhood just south of Tenleytown. One of the first master-planned communities in the nation, Wesley Heights is rich in history and character. The area was developed in the 1920s at a time when builders were intent on creating small communities to complement the surrounding natural beauty. That vision remains intact today, as Wesley Heights real estate options consist mainly of original, single-family homes on large, wooded lots.
While dominated by Tudor-style, upscale houses, Wesley Heights boasts the popular townhome communities of Sutton Place and Embassy Park, plus luxury high-rise buildings like The Foxhall and The Towers. Many of these peaceful residences are pet-friendly and feature updated kitchens and bathrooms, as well as spacious quarters with private terraces. Amenities often include two-car parking, swimming pools, and tennis courts. Most are within walking distance of the Tenleytown-AU Metro station and minutes away from Downtown D.C. and Georgetown. The neighborhood’s leafy streets are also home to the 0.8-mile Wesley Heights Park Trail, a cross-town trail that connects nearby Battery Kemble Park and Glover Archibald Park.
If you're looking for a quiet night out, there is a small urban village within walking distance, but Wesley Heights’ real appeal is enjoying – and affording – a luxury home amidst a stunning landscape.
