Welcome to Petworth and Brightwood



Petworth is a place where buyers looking for a classic front-porch rowhouse can find a lot of choices.  The area offers various row home styles, including tudor, colonial, traditional and contemporary, while detached homes are a rare find.  Houses here also vary in size and amenities, depending on the degree of updates or renovation.  Condominium and apartment buildings increased in recent years in the area, as developers found new opportunities, particularly near the Metro station. The Petworth Metro Station at Georgia and New Hampshire Avenues, connects residents to all of Greater Washington, while a relatively new gourmet Safeway market a block north, now serves the area.  Trendy restaurants, cafes and retail shops are clustered on Upshur St near Georgia Ave, just a few steps from the Yes! Market and seasonal Farmer’s Market which opens on weekends.


Just north of Petworth, neighboring Brightwood offers more of a variety of home types and styles.  There are a mix of row homes and detached homes of various sizes and styles.  However, the absence of a Metro Station, new retail development, and social gathering places make this neighborhood a place where a car or a bike are more important. The Walmart and Safeway market on Georgia Ave in this primarily residential community provide the nearest shopping options.
