Updated: Jun 3, 2019


Welcome to the second edition of our Neighborhood Spotlight Series, where we will continue to provide a little insight into some of the best Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Silver Spring and DC neighborhoods to live, so you can feel more comfortable in the purchase of your new home in the DC area..


Next up in our DC neighborhoods feature is Petworth. One of the oldest and most historic neighborhoods in DC, Petworth is full of charm and character. The community has evolved over the last century, with houses being updated to appeal to residents of various demographics. A variety of restaurants and shops are set along Georgia Avenue, the main road that runs through the neighborhood, offering residents tons of options. One unique feature of Petworth is the abundance of larger size houses available, which are typically a rarity in D.C. Many homes feature backyards and parking spaces built into the price, not seen in many other DC neighborhoods. If you’re looking for a bit more space, but still want to be close to the downtown area, then this neighborhood is a great option!


We have created an infographic to provide a quick glimpse into some of the housing and residential statistics that a potential homebuyer may be interested in. We hope you find this information helpful!

To top it off, it also features beautifully hand-scraped oak wood floors.
