Fessenden House and North Cleveland Park have little in common besides proximity, but news reports of the $18 million mansion’s sale nevertheless jogged our memory (because they’re both real estate related? Our mind works in mysterious ways at times).
The Washington Post featured North Cleveland Park back in October, and the advantages it found then remain true now. It’s a quiet neighborhood that’s also in the middle of the action due to the neighborhood’s location between Connecticut and Wisconsin Avenues (Albemarle Street is the northern boundary, the Post places the southernmost boundary at Tilden Street).
Walkability and access to green spaces are among the selling points. Many residents are a ten to 15-minute walk from the Saturday farmers market at Sheridan School, the shops and restaurants in Tenleytown and Van Ness, and to the community garden on Sedgwick Street.
