LeDroit Park

LeDroit Park was founded by Amzi Barber in 1873 as one of the first DC’s suburbs, aimed at attracting upper middle class professionals who worked downtown. The historic neighborhood was a gated community, filled with detached and semidetached houses built between 1873 and 1877, most of which survive to this day. The initial vision of creating a romantic suburb with narrow, tree-lined streets has greatly influenced LeDroit Park, and it has maintained its historic qualities throughout the years, evolving into one of the most beautiful and comfortable neighborhoods in D.C.

Leading the Quiet Life

Throughout the years, LeDroit Park has gone through ups and downs, and the latter part of the 20th century wasn’t all that great to the neighborhood. But with the turn of the millennium, property prices around D.C. began to skyrocket, and soon the beautiful, albeit somewhat let-down, Victorian houses of LeDroit Park were turned into some of the most beautiful, yet affordable properties in the city. New homeowners flocked to the neighborhood, houses were renovated, new public infrastructure was installed and LeDroit Park was finally restored to its initial beauty.

Nowadays, new homeowners, renters and long-time residents coexist in appreciation of the marvelous green island in the middle of D.C. LeDetroit Park hasn’t been the target of major development efforts, and still remains primarily a residential neighborhood. There is no real commercial strip in the area, and the only local businesses are the small LeDroit Park Market and Cookie’s Corner convenience store and café. Still, many residents feel this is exactly what makes the neighborhood so special – entertainment and nightlife are a rock’s throw away in the nearby Bloomingdale, Logan Circle and U Street, but LeDroit Park is reserved for living, taking leisurely strolls, having picnics at the parks and mingling with your neighbors.

Architectural Masterpieces All Around

One of the main reasons it’s impossible to imagine LeDroit Park as a bustling commercial district is that the architecture of the neighborhood is so vividly residential, that anything different would immediately fall out of place. The historical gated community consists of Italian villas and Gothic style cottages, low-rise brick row houses and spectacular multi-roofed detached Victorian homes, completely unsuited for retail and urban entertainment.

The peaceful and tranquil LeDroit Park has found a place in the hearts of its residents for multiple reasons. There’s no city stress, no rush and no commercial bustling in the laid-back community, while the convenient location puts all urban amenities within easy reach. Coupled with some of the most affordable prices for a wide variety of properties, ranging from fully renovated 19th century townhomes to modest apartments in early 20th century block houses, LeDroit Park is a great choice for retirees, young professionals and small families alike.
