Located in Northwest Washington, D.C., Petworth real estate is roughly bounded by Kennedy Street to the north, Rock Creek Church Road to the south, Georgia Avenue to the west, and North Capitol Street to the east. It is served by the Georgia Avenue-Petworth Metro Station.

Petworth real estate has a long history that is evident in the many original row houses still standing. The community was originally composed of two country estates until the land was purchased by developers in the 1880s. Petworth real estate is also home to two historic landmarks, the Rock Creek Cemetery and the Armed Forces Retirement Home, both of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The addition of a newer landmark was completed in 2007 – the Petworth Recreation Center, a playground and water spray park that caters to the children of Petworth real estate owners and residents.
