Burleith Real Estate For Sale
Although its history dates back to the 1700's, the small Washington, DC neighborhood of Burleith owes much of its development to a busy five-year stretch from 1923-1928. The real estate firm of Shannon & Luchs purchased a large portion of the land, and targeted the "the buyer of moderate means, but of more than ordinary good taste." During this period, 450 units were constructed. Given today's total of 535 homes, that early burst of activity would prove definitive. The homes share a distinctive community style, with boxy brick corner-lot homes connected by row houses.
