Named for the 84-acre American University it surrounds, American University Park is home to an upscale residential neighborhood of mostly single-family homes in NorthwestWashington, D.C. American University Park real estate is nestled among wooded hills – some of the highest in the city – with nearly 2,700 homes, typically mid-size brick colonials featuring shady porches and fronting tree-lined streets.
In the 1990s, American University Park real estate values soared, spurred by an influx of young families looking for an affordable alternative to the city’s pricier neighborhoods. Today, turnover is rare and many families choose to add on to their existing homes rather than move out of this beloved neighborhood. American University Park real estate’s desirability is further enhanced by its proximity to two major shopping corridors, along Wisconsin and Massachusetts Avenues, and its accessibility via the Tenleytown—AU Metro Station.
