Palisades Homes For Sale in Washington DC
The Palisades homes for sale in Washington DC are part of an out of the way neighborhood that runs along the Potomac River near the northwestern corner of the District of Columbia. It is just north of the Georgetown University campus and extends to Spring Valley near the Maryland border. This long, narrow residential strip is regarded as a quiet community that cherishes its relative anonymity. Along with its small town charm and civic pride comes a healthy price tag. Zillow sets the home value index at $737,800 for both single family homes and condos, and prices rise quickly into the seven-figure range.

More About Palisades Homes For Sale in Washington DC
Homes for sale in the Palisades enjoy a diverse range of architectural styles. Colonials, Tudors, Cape Cods and Craftsman bungalows can be seen along the handful of long streets that run the length of the neighborhood, as well as the short side streets and cul-de-sacs. Condominiums tend to be of the post World War II variety (i.e. "International-style") and the one thing you won't see a lot of is the ubiquitous DC staple - Victorian-era row houses. There also isn't the typical gentrification trend or hip modern lofts. The neighborhood has always been just fine with the same identity, or as some longtime residents like to call it, 'a small town in a big city'.
Although the Palisades is an oddly-shaped piece of land from an aerial view, and one of the better-kept secrets in Washington, DC, it has all the creature comforts most residents would want. A commercial strip along MacArthur Boulevard offers convenience stores, coffee shops, a Safeway market and a number of popular restaurants. Francis Scott Key Elementary is a top-rated public school and there are good private options as well, such as Georgetown Day School, the Lab School of Washington, and Our Lady of Victory. There's no Metro station in the neighborhood but most residents are content to drive. Despite its charming houses and quiet streets, the Palisades isn't likely to become DC's next hot spot, and locals are just fine with that.
