Kent & Wesley Heights

Welcome to Kent and Wesley Heights

Straddling either side of Battery Kemble Park, the Kent and Wesley Heights neighborhoods offer the best of "urban suburban" living. These neighborhoods include a mix of more traditional single-family homes, some on very graciously-scaled lots, as well as some of the city's most spectacular new construction. With easy access to Georgetown, Downtown, and some of the area's finest independent schools, homes in Kent and Wesley Heights trade relatively infrequently. With numerous streets abutting Glover Archbold and Battery Kemble Parks, the access to leafy green space combined with proximity to all of the attractions of the Nation's capital make these neighborhoods consistently in demand.
