Massachusetts Avenue Heights is a sought after, exclusive address in the northwest quadrant of Washington, DC. The majority of the neighborhood is occupied by the Washington National Cathedral, leaving little room for residential real estate. Accordingly, most of the homes are tucked into a small triangular area between Massachusetts Avenue and Garfield Street just north of Observatory Circle and the Vice President’s residence. Listings typically start at $1 million and the supply of homes for sale is low, given the low turnover of the neighborhood. Properties range from stately brick colonials to more contemporary, sprawling homes. Select homes feature high-end finishes, including pools, saunas, and outdoor entertaining pavilions with owners continuing to invest in the latest in modern conveniences.
Residents are drawn by the top rated private and public schools as well as the wide open green spaces. Massachusetts Avenue Heights boundaries include Woodley Road to the north, Massachusetts Avenue on the southwest, NW on the east, and Wisconsin Avenue on the west.
