DC Neighborhoods

Spring Valley

Spring Valley is an affluent neighborhood known for its large homes and tree-line streets. The winding, hilly streets are graced by old oaks, brick Colonials and a few Tudors. Partly populated by embassies, the neighborhood is also home to the main campus of American University, the Wesley Theological Seminary, and the Washington College of Law. Many prominent Washingtonians call this idyllic neighborhood home and, despite being a military superfund site due to unexploded ordnance from testing during WWI, it continues to be an extremely desirable area, commanding impressive housing prices.
