More About Spring Valley Homes For Sale in Washington DC
While the very first houses in Spring Valley were built in the late 1600's, it didn't take its present form until the 1920's. Well-known planners W.C. And A.N. Miller conceptualized the neighborhood with curvilinear streets that complimented the symmetry of the land. The developers designed nearby Wesley Heights around the same time. Houses were built over several decades yet have maintained a consistent look with similar tasteful architecture and generous lot sizes. The neighborhood is considered to be very safe and family-friendly, with just a handful of retail businesses, including Wagshal's Market and Delicatessen, in continuous operation since 1925.
Spring Valley is known for being home to a number of well-known politicians and media figures. Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, and George H.W. Bush all lived here before serving as President. In more recent years, it has begun to attract younger families. The median home value is around $1.5 million and there are many that are well over that figure. There isn't much in the way of condo opportunities, as 97 percent of the real estate properties are detached single family homes.
For families with school-age children, the highly rated Horace Mann Elementary school lies at the edge of the neighborhood's southeastern bounds. There are numerous top-rated private schools in the general vicinity and much of the American University campus is situated here. There is no Metro station in Spring Valley although buses do run regularly along Washington Avenue. For most residents however, mass transit isn't a concern, as they prefer to drive to work. Spring Valley comes with a price tag but it is a highly desirable place to live.
