Petworth real estate has become increasingly popular in the last decade. With new businesses taking root on the commercial corridors of Georgia Ave NW, Kennedy St NW and Upshur Street NW, proximity to the offerings of Columbia Heights, and easy access to public transit; it is no wonder that Petworth feels increasingly livable.
Thanks to the efforts of investors and new residents alike, the Petworth real estate market consists primarily of beautifully renovated and restored rowhouses. When you consider the space you can get for the same price as a small condo downtown, it’s no wonder that Petworth is especially popular among young families. Though prices have risen, the neighborhood will only continue to improve, so now is an excellent time to buy. Check out the beautiful reconceived Petworth rowhouses, located just a few blocks from the Metro and all neighborhood amenities.
In addition to the iconic rowhouse, the other character in the Petworth real estate story is the converted condo. Slick and spacious condos are available, especially near the Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro Station (Green & Yellow Lines). Just two blocks from the Metro stands the completely redeveloped Safeway grocery store which reopened in 2014, serving as the ground floor of a modern apartment building. This marked a turning point for Petworth: affirming prior revitalization efforts and encouraging prospective buyers to have a look. The Worth at Petworth Station is an old-school new-build condo that features four gorgeous multi-level units.
