Along with being a quiet residential area, Woodridge also offers a brand new LEED Gold-certified library that opened this year, spanning 20,000 square feet with 40 computers and two conference rooms. Beside the library is Langdon Park as well as Chuck Brown Memorial Park.

In 2015, national real estate brokerage Redfin predicted that the suburban neighborhood would be the hottest D.C. neighborhood of the year. Since then, the median listing price for homes has grown 40.6 percent year-over-year to $563,000 in November 2016. In 2008, the average home price was $320,851.

While Woodridge topped Redfin’s list last year for hottest D.C. neighborhood of the year, 16th Street Heights made second place for Redfin’s list this year. In this quiet suburban area, visitors can find brick rowhouses, semi-detached Tudors, and colonials. Rock Creek Park is also nearby along with the Washington Tennis & Education Foundation.

Recently, flipping has been a common sight in the neighborhood. Earlier this year, this renovated six-bedroom listing sold for $1.285 million, more than double than what it previously sold for in December 2015, which was $555,000.
