Earlier this month, readers named Petworth the 2015 Curbed Cup champion, giving it bragging rights as the number one Washington, D.C. neighborhood of the year. Once again, it's time to put the Northwest neighborhood in the spotlight by featuring the five most expensive houses currently on the Petworth market. Below, in order from the highest $1.4 million to the lowest $850,000, you will be able to search through all of the photos and information you need to understand what the big spenders are focusing on. A few of these listings might be closer to other neighborhoods, but Curbed stuck with the listings Redfin provided in the Petworth section of their search engine. For those who might be interested in knowing what a typical listing is worth in the neighborhood, the median listing price is $395,000, while the median sale price is $316,000, according to national real estate brokerage Redfin.

↑ 816 Taylor Street NW
Size: 5-bed, 5.5-bath, 4,275-square-foot townhome
This restored, four-story abode comes with a Nest thermostat, wide plank red oak hardwood flooring, and a wraparound porch. Other striking details include its dual staircases and the fact that it offers enough off-street parking for three cars. Despite this listing being the most expensive house currently on the Petworth market, its price-per-square-foot price ($326) is in line with the area ($394), according to UrbanTurf.
↑ 1404 Decatur Street NW
Size: 5-bed, 5-bath, 3,816-square-foot townhome
The Roupas Group landed this renovated townhome on the Petworth market in September 2015 with an asking price of $1.45 million. Despite its gourmet kitchen and private landscaped backyard, it needed a price chop in order to appeal to buyers. Don't be swayed, though. Some of the more attractive features include its front porch, stainless steel appliances, and in-law suite.
↑ 1341 Shepherd Street NW
Size: 5-bed, 3.5-bath, 2,054-square-foot townhome
Despite being built in 1913, this townhome is new from the inside out—from its roof to its electric wiring to its plumbing to its solar panels. Even the windows are new. Other highlights include its sun room, rear brick patio, and fully finished basement.
↑ 1501 Crittenden Street NW
Size: 6-bed, 3-bath, 2,766-square-foot townhome
With exposed brick walls, hardwood flooring with walnut inlay, and a myriad of chandeliers, this listing is for those who crave wow factor with their interior design. Other features that may appeal to homebuyers include its sunroom and in-law suite.
↑ 3716 9th Street NW
Size: 3-bed, 1.5-bath, 1,020-square-foot townhome
Last on this list is this three-story townhome. It was first listed in October 2015 for $925,000, but a month later got a price chop, dropping it to its current ask. According to the listing, this property is "well kept" and comes with a new furnace, new hot water heater, new tiles in the kitchen, and refinished flooring. For those in need of some off-street parking, the listing also offers one underground parking spot and two rear parking spots.
