Woodley Park Homes and Condos for Sale

Woodley Park is a residential area close to nightlife with easy access to nature. The National Zoo and Rock Creek Park run through the center of the neighborhood, attracting nature lovers while still being close to all that the city has to offer.

Connecticut Avenue was the first streetcar line in Washington, which allowed Woodley Park to become a popular neighborhood for federal workers and Washingtonians.


This neighborhood is relatively peaceful, except for areas where tourists and other visitors are present.

Thriving Woodley Park is the gateway to the Smithsonian's National Zoo, known for incredible animals including giant pandas. Being surrounded by trees and park space makes it easy to forget that Woodley Park is firmly located within the heart of Washington DC. Bridges spanning Rock Creek serve as connections between Woodley Park and its neighboring areas, creating a sense of distance even though you are close to everything the city has to offer. When you're ready for an adventure, Rock Creek Parkway offers easy access anywhere in the District plus beyond thanks to its gateway location next door to the National Zoo. With two historic hotels nearby, Metro stops close by for trips out of town or into the heart of the city itself, plus plenty of local shops and eateries - there is something for everyone at this neighborhood enclave tucked away from view but well within reach.

Woodley Park is one of Washington's most scenic and pleasant neighborhoods, with classic row homes and lush green lawns. It is removed from the bustle of downtown D.C., making it a popular place for residents who appreciate its quieter charm and central location. Access to public transportation makes it even more appealing for commuters looking for an easy commute into the city center.


You are able to enjoy your own area without feeling disconnected from the rest of the city.

Woodley Park is known for being a stable, comfortable neighborhood with familiar businesses that attract people who prefer to ease into or out of their day at their usual haunts. Connecticut Avenue has all the conveniences you need plus some local food standouts that are worth checking out.

The Woodley Park Metro Station is located one stop away from central D.C. and offers many transportation options for daily commuters to get them to their destinations. The Metrobus service is also popular for residents who have short commutes, and Washington, D.C., has recently become more bike friendly with the addition of the Capital Bikeshare program connecting commuters north and south of the community.

There are three great options for elementary schools in the neighborhood: The National Cathedral School, Maret School, and Eaton Elementary. The Bilingual Oyster Adams school offers an excellent education for grades K-8, and both the Aidan Montessori school and public school (Eaton Elementary) offer a high level of education for local students. Most people who live here work in not-for-profit or government organizations which are found all over Washington DC.

 Regarding transportation, the Red Line of the Metro and many bus lines serve Woodley Park. It is home to the National Zoo as well as Rock Creek Park, which runs through it. You can easily access Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle and other areas near the city's center by using public transportation or a bike which can be rented nearby. However, biking after dark in Rock Creek Park may not be safe due to risks from traffic and potential criminal activity.


The noise of downtown.

Woodley Park has a slower pace than its neighboring neighborhoods, but it still offers plenty of entertainment options including retail and restaurants on Connecticut Avenue. The side streets are quiet though, which makes it a great place for taking advantage of the Smithsonian National Zoo's traffic-free paths for morning runs or evening strolls. 


A mixture of historic, well-kept streets lined with mature trees, modern condos and row houses make up this neighborhood.

There are many different types of housing available in Woodley Park, from apartments with large back yards to condos with spacious two-bedroom suites.

There are a variety of homes for sale in Woodley Park, D.C., and the price can vary considerably depending on what type of home you're looking for. The smaller brick apartment buildings on Connecticut and Calvert streets offer buyers more affordable options with great amenities, but if you want something more historic then you should check out the row houses found on the neighborhood's side streets—many of which have been renovated to keep their original character while upgrading their interiors.

The Woodley Park neighborhood is home to many historic flat-fronted houses, which were built in the early 1900s and influenced by architect Clarke Waggaman's classical styles. Commercial and mid-rise apartment buildings line Connecticut Avenue, each about eight stories tall. Studio apartments typically cost between $1,600 and $2,000 while two or three bedroom apartments can be more than six thousand dollars.


You are smack in the heart of the city only when you want to be, and can get away from it again quickly and easily.

The shady, tree-lined streets and immaculate front yards of this neighborhood evoke images of small-town America. However, the apartment buildings located here provide an urban feel without the hassle typically associated with city life.

By offering easy access to the District's sights, Woodley Park has plenty to keep residents occupied. The top attraction is the Smithsonian National Zoo, a resplendent haven for many animal species and home to the famous giant pandas Mei Xiang, Tian Tian and Bei Bei. Like all other Smithsonian institutions, entry is free year-round. For generations, Rock Creek Park has offered Washingtonians a natural escape from the city without ever having to leave the city, and residents have access to the park's miles of jogging and bike trails just steps from Calvert Street.

Woodley Park offers a vibrant restaurant scene, too. On Calvert Street, diners can choose from relaxed pubs or weekend brunch spots, or they can try something adventurous at one of Connecticut Avenue's many ethnic restaurants, including Lebanese, Japanese and Cajun cuisine.

An absolute must see in Woodley Park is the National Zoo, which is maintained by the Smithsonian. From the pandas which were gifted from China, to giraffes, elephants, lions, tigers, as well as exotic birds, reptiles and other wildlife – it’s a great place to spend your time, especially when the weather is nice.

Woodley Park has a wide range of restaurants like the Lebanese Taverna, which has been a favorite of locals for its great Mediterranean cuisine.

Petit Monde Bistro & Cafe is also a must-visit, offering pastries, breakfast pizza & sandwiches, as well as gelato, and a nice assortment of wine. Stop by Open City’s patio as well – it’s a great place for a Sunday brunch.

Duke’s Counter has authentic British cuisine. Mayahuel Cocina Mexicana offers upscale tacos and enchiladas, and for typical American fare try District Kitchen.

If you're into movies, this neighborhood has a great Art Deco style theater from the 1930s with many great films shown on its large screen. The balconies are interesting and provide a unique view that adds to the retro feel of the venue. On warm days, there's no better way to follow the bike trails or explore Rock Creek Park than by renting bikes from Capital Bikeshare or hiking/jogging through it yourself. There is plenty of space for picnics and other activities like tennis or volleyball here too

Woodley Park is an affluent, mostly residential, neighborhood in Northwest Washington D. C., which is home to the National Zoo, located within Rock Creek Park. It’s the perfect area for hiking and bike trails, on one end, and great restaurants and shops on Connecticut Avenue.

It’s home to the Omni Shoreham Hotel which has hosted many presidential inaugural balls and has long been popular with tourists since the Beatles arrived there in the ‘60s.

Between Connecticut Avenue to the South of the National Zoo, Woodley Park, with its turn of the century row houses, is bordered by Rock Creek Park. Mt. Saint Albans, which has the Washington National Cathedral, is to the West.

The upscale houses are surrounded by beautiful parks and quiet residential streets as well as some of the best trails of Rock Creek Park.
