Car: Not Necessary
Palisades is a relaxed and upscale neighborhood in Washington, DC, a narrow, leafy neighborhood of streets and shops just upstream from Georgetown along the Potomac River basin. Residents come here for the proximity to downtown DC and to the Potomac River and C&O canal - many commute along the river to work (and it's a short shot to the mall and attractions). The neighborhood has a dozen eateries. a number of which are in 'best of DC' lists, as well as all other shopping.
Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: I am a homemaker and former World Bank officer, and experienced host of holiday travelers. My husband and I rented our English basement for two years. Now our growing family is moving to a larger house in the neighborhood, but we are keeping this special house to move back into when we start shrinking again! In the meantime, we hope that our guests will enjoy the neighborhood and the house as much as we have.
Why the Owner Chose Northwest Washington, Washington, DC, USA:
My husband, an avid canoer and kayaker, dreamed of living on one of the streets above the river for years before the house became available.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a truly special house - in a city that has very few panoramas, this one has a wonderful open vista, and it's a quick hop down to Fletcher's boathouse, one of DC's most active outdoor resources (fishing, canoes, bikes, picnic areas). And it's remarkably close-in for such a spot - a short commute by bike to the city. Palisades has a village feel, with library, shopping, and farmer's market, and Georgetown in just a short bike away.
