Sidwell Friends School is a privately-run Quaker school in the Cleveland Park neighborhood of Northwest DC. Founded in 1883 by Thomas Sidwell, it is one of the most highly-regarded schools in Washington, DC. The school has an enrollment of 1,097, which includes both of President Obama’s daughters, Malia and Sasha. The Middle and Upper Schools are located on Wisconsin Avenue NW, while Lower School is situated in Bethesda, Maryland. In addition to the Cleveland Park neighborhood, both the Cathedral Heights and Tenleytown neighborhoods are close to the Middle and Upper Schools. Cleveland Park is notable for its large number of Victorian-style single family homes, but there are also condominiums available along the commercial Connecticut Avenue NW corridor.
The Maret School is an independent K-12 day school located in the Woodley Park neighborhood of Washington, DC. The school was founded in 1911 by three French sisters and admission is limited to just 635 students for all 13 grade levels. There are three other neighborhoods in close proximity to the school: Cleveland Park, Cathedral Heights, and Glover Park. These are all highly sought-after Northwest DC neighborhoods, and as such prices can be high but the return is great. All of these areas are close to the National Cathedral, Rock Creek Park, Glover-Archbold Park, the National Zoo, and the ever-bustling commercial neighborhood of Georgetown. There are plenty of single-family row homes and detached houses to choose from in these largely residential areas.

Georgetown is one of the most iconic neighborhoods in all of Washington, DC. It is a highly sought after area filled with lavish row houses, apartments, and condominiums. The trend as of late is to take old properties and turn them into luxury condominiums.

Plenty of retail options are available not only in Adams…
Trinidad is an up-and-coming Northeast neighborhood that is becoming a sought-after destination for affordable housing in the District, although that affordability may not last for long. There are several larger properties in the neighborhood that have been renovated and turned into four-unit condominium complexes. These offer much more affordable options than similar units in Northwest DC and other parts of Northeast. The completely remodeled condos offer a good option for those who want to be in a newer property and don’t need the space that comes with owning a house. Situated just north of the trendy H Street Corridor, Trinidad has had a resurgence in just the last five years. While it pales in comparison to H Street NE with retail and dining options,
