Crestwood Real Estate For Sale
Tucked into the lower right corner of Rock Creek Park, Crestwood is a secluded residential neighborhood in the northeastern section of Washington, DC. Like many parts of the district, Crestwood began as a large country estate in the 1700's, and was known primarily as farm and mill land until the post Civil War era. It began its present day development in the early 1900's, at a time when other parts of Rock Creek Park were also evolving. Early housing was typified by large single family homes and the trend continued throughout the 1920's, '30's, and beyond. While the architecture tends toward grand Colonials and Tudors, there are a smattering of Victorian style row houses.
