Eckington Neighborhood: Washington DC's Quiet Little Secret

If you’ve been looking for an up-and-coming neighborhood in the Washington, DC area that’s safe, mature, and charming—and best of all affordable—the Eckington area is your dream come true. Imagine reasonable prices for high-quality homes just brimming with history and character. 

One of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, Eckington is a hidden gem of tree-lined streets and colorful Victorian and Greek revival homes. Before becoming the close-knit community it is today, it was a large private estate established in 1830.

Eckington draws a mix of retirees, young professionals, and families looking for a small-town feel with big-city amenities. The area boasts a thriving business community with pubs, restaurants, and shopping within walking distance. There are apartments,single-family homes, condos, and townhouses to choose from. Howard University is just one mile away. 

This wasn’t always the case; just 20 years ago this area was plagued with crime and drugs. Homes fell into disrepair and the future looked grim. In 2000, the city revitalized the area, and the turnaround is clear everywhere you look.

There is fun street art, homes being refurbished and a very strong sense of community. Crime is way down and people are moving in. The groundwork has been laid and it won’t be long before the secret is out and values skyrocket.

Locals love to call their area “a quiet little secret.”

We don’t think it will be a secret much longer. We love our spacious, completely refurbished condo listed on 30 T St. NE. 

This condo features two large levels with three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms and lives like a townhouse. Large bay windows and multiple skylights bathe the home in an abundance of natural light!

Gleaming cherry hardwood floors throughout. Open main level with a massive living area plus exposed brick feature walls. The separate dining area leads to a gourmet eat-in kitchen with high-end stainless-steel appliances, granite counters, pass-through to the dining area, and tons of cabinet space. Convenient in-unit laundry.

Bright and sunny master suite on an upper level, complete with a vaulted ceiling, walk-in closet, and a master bath with walk-in shower and jetted tub. Two additional large bedrooms and a full bath.

Spacious rear deck nestled in greenery, perfect for relaxation or dining alfresco. A spiral staircase leads down to off-street, rear parking.

Eckington is where it’s at and 30 T St NE is where you want to be! Tree-lined, leafy, residential area with easy access to Brookland, Capitol Hill, NOMA, Ledroit/Bloomingdale, U Street, Union Market and beyond.

A close-knit community, where the neighbors know and watch out for each other. Access to transportation and retail is easy. Depot, Giant and more, all just up the road.

Local favorites include Big Bear Cafe, Boundary Stone, Red Hen, the weekly farmer’s market and secret neighborhood oasis at Crispus Attucks Park. Enjoy the best of city living with a small-town atmosphere.
