Named for an estate built in the early 1700s, a majority of homes in Burleith began going up in the 1920s. At the time, the homes were deemed to be an affordable option for buyers in the area.

Sometimes called “the Village in the City”, there’s plenty to discover in Burleith, an upscale neighbor to popular Georgetown. This small, residential neighborhood may not have the swanky name, but many find it a fantastic alternative to some of its better-known, and even more expensive neighbors.

Bordered by Reservoir Road and Whitehaven Parkway, 35th Street to 39th Street, hundreds of homes first went up in Burleith between the early to late 1920s. The corner brick homes are still visible, connected via two-story row houses, with well-maintained front gardens, painted in a variety of distinguishing colors.
