Much of Woodridge’s housing stock was built in the early 1900s and retains the original charm of the period. Homes are relatively spacious with a number of three or four-bedroom, single family homes on the market. A smaller number of apartments and high-rises are also available as well as traditional brick rowhouses and craftsman bungalows. Many new owners are renovating their homes to upgrade the kitchens, expand the bathrooms and update the cabinetry while preserving the fine moldings and wainscoting of the original homes. Select homes are set back from the sidewalks with small yards and patio areas in the back.
Bounded by Michigan Avenue to the north, Bladensburg Road to the south, and Eastern Avenue to the east, Woodridge has South Dakota Avenue and 18th Street to the west. Adjacent neighborhoods include Michigan Park, Mt Rainier, and Langdon.
With its close proximity to Rhode Island Avenue and easy commute to Downtown DC, the neighborhood is seeing increased investment activity and interest from prospective home owners.
