Tenleytown is a historic neighborhood in the northwest quadrant of Washington, DC, that combines the feel of a high-end suburb with urban amenities such as dining and retail options conveniently located so residents can easily get around on foot.
Originally named for an 18th century area tavern owner, John Tennally, the area is also home to the site of the highest point in Washington, Point Reno, and to nearly all of the District's radio and television towers. Fort Reno was a Civil War fort that helped protect the Capital against invasions, proving to be a critical lookout point from its high altitude. Read more about Tenleytown real estate.

Today, Tenleytown properties combine a mix of architectural options ranging from small Victorians to duplexes and rowhouses as well as bungalows and center-hall Colonials. Cityline and Tenley Hill, two condo developments, round out the housing stock which also includes rentals. Tenleytown schools are one of the area's best kept secrets, acclaimed as some of the best in the city. Private schools such as Sidwell Friends (the Obama girls attend) and Georgetown Day School are nearby.
The Tenleytown-AU stop on the Washington Metro Red Line serves Tenleytown and adjacent American University Park, although the majority of the AU campus is southwest of the station.
Tenleytown boundaries include Garrison Street to the north, Upton Street to the south with Wisconsin Avenue and Reno Road to the west and east respectively.
