Forest Hills Property Values
Quiet and peaceful yet still extremely close to all the amenities Washington, DC has to offer, Forest Hills is one of the most exclusive and beautiful DC neighborhoods you've never heard of. It gets its simple, apt name from the rolling hills covered with trees that make up the neighborhood. The area is often incorrectly referred to as Van Ness because of the Van Ness Metro station and UDC campus of the same name.
The neighborhood is an ideal balance of both convenience and privacy. It is home to some of the largest and most picturesque embassies and some of the most awe-inspiring private residences. Both J. Edgar Hoover and Marjorie Merriweather Post once lived in Forest Hills. The relatively small neighborhood hosts an eclectic mix of architectural styles, and a stroll or bike ride through Forest Hills is well worth it. You'll see everything from sprawling neoclassical mansions to ultra modern single-family homes that will leave you scratching your head. There are also condos and co-ops available in the southern end of the neighborhood. Buying a piece of real estate here comes at a premium that residents believe is well worth the price. It's a national park-like setting combined with a quaint neighborhood feel.
