Original Source:  Walk to Tenleytown/AU Park Metro

Tenleytown-AU Metro is located just inside the district line in what was once a trolley town at the turn of the century. It's the closest metro stop to American University which is home to roughly 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Within walking distance of Tenleytown-AU Metro are BestBuy, the Container Store, a hardware store, a branch of the DC Public Library (recently renovated), Whole Foods and numerous other shops and restaurants. Neighborhoods served by Tenleytown-AU metro include Tenleytown, AU Park, Wakefield/Chevy Chase and North Cleveland Park.

  • American University Park covers a wide swath of land and is bordered by Mass Ave, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Western (roughly). One bedroom condos start in the high $300's and single family homes stretch up to $1,750,000. Typical to the area, you'll find a lot of brick colonials interspersed with some ramblers, the occasional split, and capes. Walk time to metro varies widely, and can range from 5 to 35 minutes. Some bus options exist, particularly along Massachusetts Avenue.
  • Chevy Chase/Tenleytown is made up primarily of townhouses, condos and single family homes. Back when I lived there, it was known primarily as Tenleytown... not sure when the CC snuck in? At any rate, 1-bedroom condos start in the low $300's and single family home sales have approached $1,400,000 in the last year. Walk to metro can be 5-25 minutes.
  • The Wakefield/Chevy Chase triangle is bordered by Nebraska, Connecticut and Albemarle. High $300's for condos. $600+ buys you an entry-level single family home, and the high end has run $1,300,000 in the past year or so. Walk time to metro: 5-20 minutes.
  • North Cleveland Park is a lovely part of town developed in the late 1800s through the 1940s. Prices in this part of Cleveland Park range from $450 to the high $1,300's. You'll find a lot of semi-detached homes here along with a fair amount of single family brick homes. It's close to Z-Burger, which is a recent favorite family find. Perhaps the best burger in NW DC? Certainly a front runner! Walk to metro in 5-15 minutes.

Smart post.  Tenleytown is a great area to live.  A lot of nice houses, areas to walk around and convenient for shopping.
