Karla Zimmerman of Lonely Planet writes “You might not know it from the tourist brochures, but there’s a DC beyond the museums and marble-clad monuments. For a taste of local life, seek out these buzzy neighborhoods where bohemian clubs, curio-filled markets and the nation’s best restaurant lurk. You might not know it from the tourist brochures, but there’s a DC beyond the museums and marble-clad monuments. For a taste of local life, seek out these buzzy neighborhoods where bohemian clubs, curio-filled markets and the nation’s best restaurant lurk.” With a resident population of approximately 620,000, the city is growing rapidly forming mini cities inside the city of the Nation’s Capital.

This dynamic growth is due to the city’s world class transit system that rapidly moves millions of suburbanites in and out of the urban areas for both work and fun during any given week. Former residents of some of the most densely populated cities are enjoying Washington, DCs classic homes just as well as former rural area families.

Deanwood Holdings – History and Future

In the northeast quadrant of Washington, DC and east of the Anacostia River a moderately populated urban community historically named Deanwood is being redeveloped and gentrified. Upon completion, Deanwood will have new roads, new office buildings, new theatres and a new Planned Unit Development consisting over 2000 homes.

The majority of original houses in Deanwood were constructed from 1900 – 1933 on multiple lots according to present definitions. Smaller homes are being replaced, raised to more levels and modernized to larger more marketable properties in Deanwood as part of the City’s gentrification. Consequently, dream-home developers and entrepreneurs are improving lots more rapidly in Deanwood than any other areas of the District of Columbia.

Eads Street:

An upwardly mobile real estate developers’ dream…3 naturally walk-out the rear of building’s basement lots, 15,000 square feet in a beautiful one-stop, rural-town motif. This is a great multi-family condominium building site overlooking the start of the Watts Branch Regional Park/Playground and the Capital Heights Metro Station. These sloping down and away from street frontage lots are just the spot for a row of 4-level townhomes or a comparatively similar styled 5 level condominium building with terraces and balconies to appreciate the views. Sellers are licensed engineering consultants.

57th Street:

Hmmm! This charming and extraordinary setting provides much semblance of a detached single family home tucked away into the wooded rolling hillside. See if you could build without destroying the two majestic pine trees that gives the site its character. It is situated on just 5,000 square feet with magnificent neighbors, seasonal runoff creek preserving its privacy. Visitors won’t be just passing through. Instead they will come in to stay their visit with a home on this lot. You won’t believe you are still in the city when you are inside and around the house this side commands. Decide on house that features a Chef’s kitchen that overlooks a 2 level deck/patio for elegant family barbecues. Imagine 4+ bedrooms. Main floor could be 4 steps higher than the garage that is below the master suite with full private bath and its own entrance from same garage. That house should boast 3.5 luxury baths minimum.

Don’t forget the multiple decks and patios with partially outdoor kitchen and fireplace. Get your architect or home planner on board and consult us for more information immediately.
