Brightwood Real Estate

Brightwood is a serene community of moderately priced, well-maintained single-family homes including row houses, spacious bungalows, and a number of colonials. Many homes feature front porches and brick-paved walkways and sit slightly elevated above the streets with a canopy of mature oak trees as a backdrop. Interspersed among the homes are more recently constructed apartment buildings and condos — many with an art deco flair.  The wide alleys running behind the homes provide a suburban feel, despite the urban location.  In fact, Brightwood sits near the District’s northern tip in the northwest quadrant of Washington, DC. just three miles from Columbia Heights and five miles from Downtown.  Read more about Brightwood real estate.

More About Brightwood Real Estate

Home to several lush parks with playgrounds and community gardens, Brightwood is family-friendly with peaceful streets and minimal traffic in comparison to many DC neighborhoods.  The lack of a true commercial hub adds to the neighborhood’s charm with nearby Takoma as a popular destination for shopping and dining options in addition to a sprinkling of neighborhood coffee shops and eateries.

While Brightwood is not directly served by a Metro Station, it is a five-minute walk to the Takoma station on the Red line and the Petworth Station on the Green Line is approximately ten minutes south by bus.  Brightwood is also close to I-495 for commutes to Virginia and outside the city.  Brightwood lies between Rock Creek Park to the west; 5th Street to the east; Aspen Street to the north; and Missouri Avenue to the south.
