Cleveland Park Homes and Condos for Sale

Cleveland Park is a charming neighborhood that offers the peaceful charm of a small town with easy access to the big city. Its tree-lined streets and quaint commercial center make it an ideal place to live, while its close proximity to parks, shops and eateries makes it an even better place to be!

In the late 19th and early 20th century, Cleveland Park grew quickly due to streetcar access from downtown. This led to the area becoming home to many stately early-20th-century houses. President Grover Cleveland also built a summer home in the neighborhood, starting a long tradition of Washingtonians moving up Connecticut Avenue for the cool summer breezes.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Knowing where your neighbors live and where your favorite spots are.

The neighborhood association in Cleveland Park is active and involved in all of the neighborhood's happenings. With many shops and restaurants on Connecticut Avenue, it's easy to get everything you need without leaving the area. Plus, thanks to its convenient location near public transportation or car travel, lots of people who work in Washington live there too!

Cleveland Park is a residential area in Washington, D.C., famous for its Victorian and Art Deco homes as well as its laid back, family-friendly vibe. It is also home to many small businesses and large corporations who operate within or close by the neighborhood itself - including The Coca Cola Company's headquarters. There are more green spaces than office buildings here and more single-family homes than businesses. Despite this bucolic atmosphere, the community still has everything it needs close at hand - with products and services easily accessible without venturing far outside into downtown Washington DC.

THE LIFESTYLE

A pace that is slow but stimulating.

Cleveland Park is a great neighborhood for nature lovers who want to be close to Rock Creek Park. There isn't much traffic in the area, except near the main retail strip. This was one of America's first park-and-shop strip malls.

Cleveland Park is a historic neighborhood in DC’s Northwest Quadrant popular among families, working professionals, and senior citizens. Cleveland Park is something of an anomaly in DC. It’s right on the metro, but it’s a quiet enclave that feels less city-like and more like a private, sun-dappled neighborhood brimming with Americana and charm.

The neighborhood’s beautiful historic homes, tree-lined streets and sidewalks, parks, and plenty of recreational businesses and amenities give it broad appeal among Washington DC’s diverse residents.

Like many of the Northwest Quadrant communities, Cleveland Park is a hub of growth and activity where the residents play an active role in the development and preservation of this charming, one-of-a-kind neighborhood. In fact, many of its most desirable amenities were the result of community effort.

Locals are loyal to their neighborhood retail establishments on the strip, where they can buy everything from ingredients for a dinner party to take-out food and see movies. Rock Creek Park is right outside these conveniences – it’s easy to fall into familiar weekday and weekend routines that involve shopping locally and getting out into nature.

WHAT NOT TO EXPECT

A tumultuous urban area with a pulsing nightlife.

This is a slower paced, more suburban area of DC. There are less young professionals here and more families. 

There are not many high rise apartment buildings or night-life options.
