crestwood real estate - washington dc

Offering the best of both worlds, Crestwood blends urban and suburban living in Northwest DC. This diverse neighborhood sits close to some of DC’s better known neighborhoods, yet retains a peaceful and quiet vibe, surrounded on three sides by Rock Creek Park, yet also close to everything you need and want in the region.

Originally part of a 300-acre estate, the first single-family homes weren’t developed in the community until the early 20th century. Most homes in Crestwood still sit on large, well-kept lots and rarely come on the market.

It’s an especially appealing location for those interested in a larger home with more outdoor space. Some homes standing in the neighborhood date back to the 1920s and 1930s.

Spring Valley - Washington DC

From its tree-lined streets to its rolling hills, the Spring Valley neighborhood has long attracted some of DC’s most prominent residents. Found in Northwest DC, affluent Spring Valley offers a mix of historic estates and sprawling new construction, which often comes at top dollar.

Much of the neighborhood’s development began in the late 1920s. Over the following decades, some retail and office space construction joined Spring Valley, as well.

WO&D train - herndon vaPhoto: trsdos

Originally established in the mid 1800s, the town of Herndon is seeing a rebirth of sorts. Town leaders recently transferred five-acres of land as part of a redevelopment plan for the historic downtown district.

The idea is for a public/private partnership aimed at turning some of downtown into a new mixed-use community. The project involves hundreds of new apartments, thousands of square feet of retail space and restaurants, an arts center, a series of public plazas and a multi-level parking garage.

The planned development sits about 1.5-miles from the Silver Line’s Herndon stop. For the town itself, the project brings something new to a place that’s often celebrated for its history as much as its future.
