Welcome to Woodley Park

A neighborhood comfortably residing in the space between.
​​​​​​​


Woodley Park was first developed as a sylvan for Washingtonians and federal workers, taking advantage of the streetcar line along Connecticut Avenue that connected the old city to its leafier northern heights.
​​​​​​​


WHAT TO EXPECT

THE MARKET
