Cleveland Park

President Grover Cleveland once chose the rolling farmland of what is now known as Cleveland Park to build his home.  Ever since his first administration in 1886, the president and his neighborhood have won the hearts of all who know them.

Today, Cleveland Park is rich with historical architecture and design, including Colonial Georgian Revivals, Sherman Cottages, Victorians, bungalows, farmhouses an Dutch Colonial Revivals.  Although President Cleveland’s home was razed in 1927, his Victorian homestead once stood in the heart of this historically significant neighborhood.

Cleveland Park, like many other DC subdivisions is often hard to define geographically.  In fact, the legal, though mostly located in the 20016 zip code, there’s a small enclave in (20008).  Cleveland Park, most easily described (without a map!) is bounded by Idaho and Wisconsin Avenues to the west, Tilden Street to the north, Connecticut Avenue to the east, and Kingle Valley Parkway/Woodley Road to the south.

A variety of recreational opportunities and popular landmarks can also be found within the Cleveland Park neighborhood, many of which can be easily located via the Metro Red Line.  Some of the sites that can be easily accessed from Cleveland Park include the Rosedale Conservancy, the National Zoo and The Uptown Theatre, which is an art deco structure constructed in 1936.

Cleveland Park’s prime location, large lots, and mature, tree lined streets come with upper bracket prices.  Although there are some smaller condos one could find for under $500,000, the majority, most Cleveland Park homes range from  $850,000 for smaller 3 bedroom home, to over $5 million for an estate style luxury home.

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, Cleveland Park features lovely single-family luxury homes and townhomes. There are also a relatively smaller contingent  of cooperatives, condominiums and rental apartments.  Nonetheless, the neighborhood still manages to maintain its historical atmosphere and charm.
