Spring Valley DC – A DC Neighborhood Profile from a unique and entertaining lens.
Picture it, I am driving South on Wisconsin Avenue…as I turn the corner I pass The American University…ahh that reminds me of my first Erasure concert at the University’s Bender Arena. Spare me your funny comments…it was the Eighties ,but I digress. A couple more turns off of Nebraska Avenue and you will find the affluent Washington DC neighborhood of Spring Valley. In the dictionary Spring Valley means “to be catapulted into a picturesque tree-lined neighborhood reminiscent of a movie set.” Alright, you found out, it does not — but that is how I feel when I am here.
Spring Valley DC houses American University (which I had previously mentioned), and Wesley Theological Seminary. It is surrounded by Massachusetts Avenue, Loughboro, Nebraska Avenue and Dalecarlia Blvd.
Is Spring Valley, DC’Lebrities & Presidents “Town” USA?
The DC celebrities love Spring valley— Jim Vance , Ann Compton, Washington Nationals Principal owners Debra and Ed Cohen. But the most notable residents to ever inhabit Spring Valley (no offense, Jim Vance!) — eh, just a couple Presidents. Did you know that Nixon lived in Spring Valley before he was President? Lyndon B Johnson did as well when he purchased the three-story mansion Les Ormes (The Elms).
Spectacular Spring Valley DC Homes & Estates To Be Expected
Colonial and English manor style homes (and a few mini castles!) typically range range between 1.5 million to 10 million. Although not every home in Spring Valley is a true Estate, most homes sit beautifully on large manicured lawns (and many rest on lush, rolling hills).
