Deanwood is an up and coming community located east of the Anacostia River in the Northeast Quadrant of Washington, DC. Much of the housing stock comprises detached, single-family properties but Deanwood is also home to row houses, two-level brick duplexes and wood frame dwellings. Many homes feature large yards by DC standards and green spaces are plentiful from the tree-lined streets to the walking and bike paths in Marvin Gaye Park. Off-street parking is widely available, a boon to commuters. Read more about Deanwood.
Deanwood was once one of DC’s earliest African-American communities and many of the homes available today were built by African-American craftsman. Residents include a mix of families who have lived in the area for generations as well as newcomers looking for affordable properties with convenient commutes to the City.
Located south of I-295, Deanwood is served by the Deanwood Metro Station on the Silver and Orange Lines. The community is bounded by Eastern Avenue to the east, Nannie Helen Burroughs Avenue to the southwest and Division Avenue to the southeast.
