Oxon Hill gets its name from Thomas Addison, an early colonist who built a huge hilltop manor in 1711, overlooking the Potomac. The manor's name and surroundings served to remind Addison of his beloved home in Oxford, England. The manor eventually burned down and was rebuilt as a 49-room neo-Georgian mansion in 1928 by the U.S. Undersecretary of State and is now maintained by the Maryland-National Capital Park. Oxon Hill went through a major residential boom from the 1940's through to the 1990's, tapering off somewhat since then. Bordered by Fort Washington to the south, Oxon Hill became home to several garden apartment communities, built as affordable housing for those involved in the war effort. Today, many of those units have converted to condos.
Homes for sale in Oxon Hill are quite affordable. There's plenty of Ramblers, Split-levels, Colonials, Capes and condos, including older conversions and newer townhouses. Property prices generally run from around $150,000 to $450,000 with a few exceptions for more expensive homes that have been expanded and customized. While new home construction lagged from 1990 to 2000, it has been slowly picking up due to available land and community features. It's likely that the recent uptick in new homes will eventually begin to drive the overall market value up. It's also worth noting that Oxon Hill serves as the gateway to the National Harbor, a major new waterfront resort community with upscale condos, hotels, restaurants, shops and more.
