Van Ness Homes For Sale in Washington DC
Up in the northwestern part of Washington, DC is a neighborhood known as Van Ness. Here you'll find large luxury single family homes for sale in a wide variety of styles, including Colonial, Tudor, Spanish and Contemporary. The community is also associated with a development complex commonly known as Van Ness North, although the buildings themselves are singularly known as Van Ness North, Van Ness East and the Archstone Van Ness Apartments. It probably won't surprise anyone that the complex is located at the intersection of Van Ness Street and Connecticut Avenue. To the immediate east is the much larger neighborhood of Forest Hills. It's so much larger that Forest Hills residents sometimes regard Van Ness as being a part of their own community.
Apart from street names and multi-unit residential buildings, Van Ness also has other important distinctions. For one, it houses the campus of the University of the District of Columbia. The other thing is its proximity to several foreign embassies. Van Ness is bounded by Yuma Street to the north, Connecticut Avenue to the east, Van Ness Street to the south and International Drive to the south. That's where the embassies come in - an extensive cluster on the other side of International Drive, including embassies for Israel, the Arab Republic of Egypt, Nigeria, Brunei and Malaysia.
