Created as a neighborhood development more than 30 years after the founding of the University that bears its name, AU Park is a single family home treasure, with long streets and tree covered lanes.

With more than 2500 homes within it’s boundaries, it is a great place to call home.

American University, Massachusetts Avenue Northwest, Washington, DC

Nestled along the border of Bethesda, in the heart of Northwest D.C., American University Park is a unique find. A lush, green, suburban enclave tucked right into the middle of the city.

First created by private developers in the 1920′s, more than 30 years after the founding of the university which shares its name, this neighborhood consisted almost entirely of mid-sized detached homes.

AU Park is a single family home treasure, with long streets and tree covered lanes.

Then after World War II, it went through a transformation. Apartment buildings and luxury condominiums were constructed, along with new businesses which helped the population blossom through the 1970s and beyond.

The approximately 2700 homes in AU Park tend to be closely spaced and many lack driveways, two features which the developers felt contributed to community spirit. Well tended yards and gardens are a common sight and a thick canopy of large and mature trees line most of these quiet streets, providing ample shade in the summer heat.

Although most of the homes were originally brick colonials, many boast additions to the original structures that added a variety fo architectural features such as bay windows, stone facades, and wide wooden porches.

Those who are weary of long commutes may be drawn to the extremely convenient central location which is just a quick drive or short metro ride from downtown D.C. Other residents enjoy this family friendly community because it provides a suburban-like neighborhood with all the benefits of an urban setting where just about everything is a short walk away. No matter which feature appeals to you most, one thing is for sure. AU Park is a great place to call home.
