Cleveland Park really has it all. There is a Metro Station, the National Zoo, and lots of interesting neighbors. It's got some wonderful old houses, a few dating back to the 1700's.  Most were built to allow the citizens of Washington to get away from the hot, humid capitol with its heat, humidity and especially aggressive mosquitos. Some are Victorians and others Queen Ann. There are many architectural details. like turrets, gables, and gingerbread. There is nothing cookie-cutter about this neighborhood.    

Houses: There are only two for sale right now - the good ones fly off the shelf in about a nano-second: View Listings  One is listed for $2875,000. It's situated on a heavily wooded lot surrounded by parkland, and it's new construction by Washington standards, built in 1989.  The other is right off Wisconsin Avenue. and is next to a large new condo project. It's had a contemporary renovation and is for sale at $2,395,000. 

Condos and Cooperatives:  There are currently 18 condos and coops for sale between $999,900 to a low of $250.000. View Listings  There are two available in my favorite building, a coop called The Broadmoor (3601 Connecticut Avenue). It's across the street from a Metro, and back in the day it was the Washington home of Senator Huey Long. The units are large, sunny and I'd live there if I could pass Picco off as a service dog, something highly unlikely as he is a big leg bumper in elevators.

Oh, and the house in the photo isn't for sale. It's just always been my very favorite house in the neighborhood.

If you're interested in a move to Cleveland Park, I'd be happy to help you set up alerts as new listings come on the market. This is a neighborhood where the good ones really do sell quickly. Please text or call me at 202-549-5167 and I can help you find a wonderful place.

Patricia Kennedy  when I lived in CT a hundred years ago, I had a house very similar to your main photo... it was a fixer upper and I worked hard at it and sold it for twice what I paid for it without getting it to anything but a fixer upper:)Endre

Looks like a great place! Did I see it had an excellent kitchen interior on the front page? Would love to see more of that! :

I love the house in the first photo. When I was in Army, we visited DC often, as we were not pad very well and most of DC was free to see. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your upcoming week.

I love reading about specific areas - Cleveland Park definitely sounds as though everything is convenient. The first condo/coop on your link (that is listed at $250K) might be small but it definitely looks light and airy.  I hope you get a buyer call for one of those two houses!
