More About 16th Street Heights Real Estate

Tree-lined streets frame a mix of brick row houses, duplexes, and American Craftsman homes.  Early century American Foursquare-style homes are also in abundance with the occasional grand colonial or Tudor coming on the market.  Many of the homes date back to the 1920s but have recently been renovated with new kitchens, bathrooms, and gleaming hardwood floors.  Because of early zoning rules requiring homes to be fully detached in 16th Street Heights, the housing stock is distinguished by larger homes set back from the road on broad streets for a more open feeling. 

Residents are drawn to the community’s convenience, affordable homes, and proximity to Rock Creek Park, with its more than 2,000 acres of recreational opportunities. Bordering 16th Street Heights are some of the prettiest stretches of Rock Creek Park, including the Carter Barron Amphitheater that hosts free summertime theater and concerts.

While 16th Street is not directly served by a Metro Station, the Georgia Avenue-Petworth and Columbia Heights Metro Stations on the Green/Yellow Line are within walking distance.  16th Street Heights bounds Military Road NW to the north; Arkansas Avenue to the south; Georgia Avenue NW to the east; and Rock Creek Park to the west.
