Palisades Property Information
The Palisades is an idyllic neighborhood that consists of a long strip of land running along the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal and Potomac River in the westernmost part of DC. It is named after the wall-like bluffs that it sits on, up over the Potomac. The neighborhood was home to the Great Falls Electric Railway, which ran from Georgetown to Glen Echo more than a century ago.
Palisades real estate consists of a mix of townhouses and detached homes, mostly in the bungalow, colonial, and Cape Cod style.
Palisades Transportation & Location
There is no Metro station within the Palisades, although the Rosslyn stop on the Blue, Orange, and Silver Lines is 1-2 miles away for residents of the neighborhood’s southeastern corner. The M4, D5, and D6 Metrobus lines run on MacArthur Blvd NW and help connect the area to other parts of the District. MacArthur Blvd NW and Canal Rd NW provide direct access out to the Maryland suburbs or into Georgetown, the Key Bridge, and downtown DC. The Chain Bridge to Virginia starts in the Palisades and accesses the George Washington Memorial Parkway.
The Palisades is situated within Northwest DC, and consists of a narrow 3-mile stretch running from Foundry Branch Valley Park and Georgetown at its southeastern end all the way up to the DC-Maryland border at its northwestern end.
