Crestwood is a neighborhood that I love, although I must admit to being completely biased. I've lived here for over three decades.
The neighborhood is surrounded on three sides by Rock Creek Park, so there is access to hiking trails (for you and your dog), the Carter Baron Tennis Stadium, the stable and riding school, and there is lots of animal life. It's common to see deer in the front yards, foxes running down the street and you could even get raccoons ns in your attic!!
The neighborhood is off 16th Street about three miles north of the White House. It's a mixture of row houses, most of them just west of 16th, and detached houses that generally seem to get larger as you go further west toward the park. !
There are some homes that are pretty old. Some of the row houses on Webster date to about 1915, and you can also find a few that are brand new. ost of the homes are attached, and two or three stories high. And most were built during the early part of the last century.
During 2016, a total of 25 homes sold in Crestwood. Of those:
- The selling prices ran from a low of $635,000 (it needed a good bit of work) to a high of $1,300,000
5 sold over the asking price.
17 sold for less than list
3 sold for the asking price
- 15 of the 25 sold in under three weeks
6 saw price reductions
All but one sold in the original listing period.
Right now, there are four homes for sale in Crestwood, and I'd be happy to introduce you to any of them.
