The second oldest community in Washington, Tenleytown overlooks the city from its highest point and blends a small town feel with a vibrant array of urban amenities along Wisconsin Avenue.

Shopping, dining, recreation, and top-notch education are all within close walking distance of the neighborhood’s tree-lined streets and two-story single-family homes. Multi-generational and family-oriented, Tenleytown continues to be among DC’s most sought-after and stable communities.
