Colonial-style homes

Stately Colonials, historic bungalows, and a few newer homes and condos line the shady tree-lined streets of American University Park. Homes here are a bit different than other neighborhoods in DC—expect smaller yards and driveways, but easy private parking and a vast suite of upgrades. AU Park homes typically sell around $1 million or more, while smaller properties, condos, and townhomes tend to hover above $500,000.

Nearby shopping & dining

Though American University Park might have a distinctly residential locale, it's still close to all the excitement DC has to offer. Most of the neighborhood's larger and local businesses can be found on Massachusetts Avenue—highlights include the Spring Valley Shopping Center, Millie's Spring Valley, and Compass Coffee. Even more conveniences, including a Whole Foods and Target, await in nearby Tenleytown.

A+ schools

Even if you don't have children, you'll still benefit from AU Park's vast collection of top public and private schools. These highly rated institutions provide more than just an amazing education—they also help boost property values over time. Most younger residents of American University Park are zoned for the District of Columbia Public Schools. Many children also attend private schools throughout Washington DC and go on to the neighborhood's namesake college, American University.

Unrivaled career opportunities

Thanks to its ideal location near Embassy Row, AU Park is an ideal choice for commuters. If you want to commute into the heart of DC, just take the Tenleytown Metro or drive south on Massachusetts Avenue to reach Capitol Hill. Unsurprisingly, American University Park is a popular spot for professors, college employees, and federal government workers. In fact, the federal government and American University are two of the city's largest employers.
