Tenleytown is a historically significant neighborhood in Northwest DC that has a little bit of everything. It is lauded for its close proximity to downtown DC while still giving off a vibe of a town all its own. The roots of the neighborhood go back to the late 18th Century, when it was named “Tennally’s Town” after tavern owner John Tennally. Over time the spelling was changed to its current form. Tenleytown real estate consists mostly of moderately sized detached homes and a few condo complexes.
