cleveland park - washington dc

Showcasing decades of growth and development, Cleveland Park’s hidden historic district presents a full range of homes and buildings, some of which can be dated back to the late 1800s and turn of the century. That’s when electric streetcars first began connecting up Cleveland Park to downtown, and neighborhood growth really began to take off.

Spurred by its new status as a streetcar suburb, Cleveland Park grew rapidly. Historians suspect a number of homes in Cleveland Park may have been constructed as summer homes for those working in nearby Georgetown.

Some of the first homes went in along Newark Street, Highland Place and Macomb, not far from the spot where President Grover Cleveland once owned a home. The diverse neighborhood quickly became

DC neighborhoods each hold their own interesting attributes, but have you ever wondered what the neighborhood you choose to live in has to say about you?

tilden gardens - washington dc

As one of the largest co-op apartment complexes in DC, Tilden Gardens sits on five-acres of land in the Cleveland Park neighborhood. The largest building of its kind until the Watergate complex opened decades later, it has remained one of the most luxurious throughout the years.

Made up of four buildings connected by landscaped, graveled walks, each building in Tilden Gardens also offers its own garage. First completed in the early 1930s, the red brick and limestone buildings provide the rare advantage of offering units with at least two exposures, and sometimes more.

You will also find such desirable original detailing inside as high ceilings, arched doorways and hardwoods with the co-op apartments of Tilden Gardens. Ranging from around 740

 tilden gardens - washington dc

Perhaps the greenest complex in town, Tilden Gardens truly lives up to its name. Set in DC’s Cleveland Park neighborhood, the property consists of a full three acres of landscaped gardens alone, joined by six buildings connected via walkways.

Originally constructed in the late 1920s as one of DC’s largest apartment co-ops, Tilden Gardens remains one of the most visually attractive communities in the city today. On the list of Goode’s Best Addresses, the property is more the exception than the norm when it comes to multi-family residences.

While many properties of the same time period were designed to devote a much larger percentage of the land to actual buildings than green space, at Tilden Gardens much of the land was preserved for open space.

the broadmoor - 3601 Connecticut Ave NW

One of Cleveland Park’s most elegant residential buildings, The Broadmoor still evokes luxury living along Connecticut Avenue, nearly 100 years from its beginning. First constructed in the mid-1920s, the building is a distinguished property in the region, and holds an honored spot on Goode’s list of Best Addresses.

Originally designed as a traditional apartment building, The Broadmoor changed over into a co-op around the mid-century mark. In its early years it was described as the home of prominent political leaders, military officers and business executives.

Although the property has changed over the years and decades, the self-managed, L-shaped building still maintains some of its original 1920s-era charm. From the hand-carved accents to the

kingle valley trail

It’s taken more than a quarter of a century, but the Klingle Valley Trail is now open, giving people a new option to replace the long ago closed stretch of Klingle Road NW. Not even a mile in length, the old stretch of roadway, running from Cleveland Park to Mount Pleasant through Rock Creek Park was prone to drainage and maintenance problems, eventually closed to traffic when a storm washed out a large section of it in the early 1990s.

Political leaders, environmentalists and locals then debated the best way to fix the problem for well more than two decades. While at one time more than an estimated 3,000 vehicles drove Klingle Road, the debate raged for years on how to best serve the public and the environment in the future.

Eventually, crews

Once a neighborhood of mostly summer estates, complete with large windows and even larger porches, the Cleveland Park of today is more of an urban suburbia, enticing residents with its tall trees and urban space, yet remaining comfortably close to Downtown Washington.
