If you're looking to stay urban in a walkable community but want a little more of a quiet suburban feel, Cleveland Park may be the perfect choice for you.
Lining the neighborhood streets that run between Connecticut and Wisconsin Avenues are large, detached homes in a variety of styles: bungalows, colonial revivals, mission revivals, and tudors as well as plenty of condominiums and cooperatives that have green space to relax and enjoy the outdoors. The Cleveland Park Metro is on the red line, which makes the neighborhood even more attractive.
Cleveland Park’s residents tend to be at the higher end of the income spectrum. The Washington City Paper recently reported that the neighborhood’s branch library, which is currently being redeveloped, is the busiest in the city, and the community listserv (which features an advice columnist) is one of the largest listservs in the country with over 10,000 members!
The neighborhood also has a number of public green spaces, like the Tregaron Conservancy, and the neighborhood is surrounded by the public schools, Oyster Bilingual and John Eaton Elementary, and the private schools, Washington International, Maret, and Sidwell Friends - home to the Obama and Clinton children.
