Small town atmosphere with unbeatable access.

Welcome to Spring Valley

Spring Valley is an elite residential neighborhood in northwest Washington, D.C. Compared to most other neighborhoods in D.C., Spring Valley has a distinctly local feel in part because of its quiet, curving streets designed to follow the land’s contours.
Residents say that Spring Valley is a great place to raise a family because of its safe, serene, and private streets. There’s a real sense of community here, and commutes from the neighborhood are incredibly convenient for those working in D.C., Bethesda, Maryland, and other nearby business hubs.
Many powerful members of the Washington, D.C., elite have lived in Spring Valley: sports team owners, media personalities, ambassadors, and three people who would later become United States presidents (Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, and George H.W. Bush). This is also where Warren Buffett attended high school.

Serene Yet Well-Connected Location

Located just adjacent to the Maryland border, Spring Valley feels spacious and suburban. There’s almost no commercial development here, which some D.C. elite prefer compared to the bustling shopping areas and attractions of Georgetown.
Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Dulles International Airport are each less than 30 minutes away. The nearest Metro station is over a mile away, but Metrobus service connects Spring Valley to the rest of the Washington, D.C. region. Most residents travel by car here.


The main campus of American University — where John F. Kennedy delivered his historic Strategy of Peace speech — is a familiar Spring Valley Landmark, as is the United Methodist Church’s Wesley Theological Seminary, founded in 1882.
For younger Spring Valley students, District of Columbia Public Schools operates highly recommended, award-winning schools:


Several of Spring Valley’s coffee shops and restaurants lie within walking distance of each other, including Millie’s, which serves Baja-California food and drink, and “The president’s deli” Wagshal’s Market and Deli (est. 1925). Spring Valley Shopping Center has all the essentials you need for daily living, and of course, everything that the city of D.C. has to offer is within reach of this affluent neighborhood.
The nine holes and practice green of Rock Creek Park Golf are a short drive away. American University’s athletic facilities are available to Spring Valley residents, and the paved, bikeable Capital Crescent Trail (aka Georgetown Branch Trail) connects Spring Valley to Georgetown and D.C.’s Maryland suburbs. Capital Crescent Trail offers some spectacular monument views and serene wooded areas along the seven-mile trail.


Tudor, Georgian, and brick colonial styles are among the stunning architecture found in Spring Valley. Here you’ll find some large manors built on generous lots surrounded by nature — features for privacy and recreation that are hard to find elsewhere in D.C.
Home prices reflect just how sought-after this neighborhood is, however. In July 2021, Spring Valley surpassed even such upscale D.C. neighborhoods as Chevy Chase and Georgetown as the highest-priced neighborhood in D.C. by median home price.
