Takoma Real Estate

Takoma sits at the northeastern tip of the District, with Eastern Avenue separating it from Takoma Park just over the Maryland state line.  Both Takomas were originally part of a single development founded in 1883 as Takoma Park although they later separated with Takoma Park becoming incorporated under the state of Maryland in 1890.  The name comes from an indigenous word meaning “lifted up” or “near heaven” and alludes to the area’s desirable elevation that is 350 feet higher than DC.  Until the early 1980s, Takoma served as the headquarters for the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, helping to promote the community’s reputation for clean living.  Read more about Takoma real estate.

More About Takoma Real Estate

Located close to Rock Creek Park, Takoma today is a leafy neighborhood with homes that were largely built between 1920 and 1950 including colonials, Cape Cod-style homes and bungalows.  The area is a strong draw for first-time home buyers and young families because of its relatively affordable home prices in comparison to neighboring communities. 

A small downtown has recently been redeveloped bringing in new residents and local businesses.  Residents point to the two branch libraries, playgrounds with splash parks as well as the Takoma Community Center which is free for DC residents.  The center features an indoor pool, fitness center, and children’s pool as well as an active schedule of classes and activities.

Takoma is served by the Takoma Stop on the Red Line located on the DC/Maryland state line at Eastern Avenue.  Takoma is bounded by Eastern Avenue to the northeast; Tuckerman and Van Buren Streets to the south; and Georgia Avenue to the west.
