It may be one of the most unusual sounding names in the DC area, but it turns out Tunlaw Road is much more simplistic than it first appears. In all actuality, Tunlaw Road is a palindrome of sorts that can be traced back nearly a century and a half.

The road gains its name from an old Washington farm and estate once referred to as Tunlaw Farm. Now commonly called Wesley Heights, the suburban estate stood near Klingle and 45th.

Its owner was said to throw some of the area’s most lavish parties, often entertaining the likes of top members of Washington society. The estate sat on property belonging to the man’s father-in-law, also an extremely influential and wealthy man.

If living in Georgetown makes your wish list but not necessarily your budget, you may want to try searching in nearby Glover Park. Perhaps a more affordable option than its pricy neighbor to the south, Glover Park has plenty to offer residents.
