The DC Neighborhood That Feels Like a Village

Tenleytown, which boasts the highest natural elevation of any point in the city, owes its namesake to 1790s tavern owner John Tennally. Residents enjoy this pleasant, quiet neighborhood given its accessibility compared to its upscale counterparts. The high natural elevation is a fitting metaphor for Tenleytown’s quality of life; cutting edge schools, destination hangout spots, and a vibrant community.

Originally rural farmland, Tenleytown experienced construction intermittently throughout the 20th century. This sporadic growth led to a large variety of houses, from bungalows to Victorians to Colonials.

Retail options abound near the Tenleytown-AU Metro stop. There’s a Whole Foods, Best Buy, and Starbucks complemented by locally owned and operated restaurants such as Pete’s Apizza and Guapo’s.
