Washington, D.C.'s oldest homes on the market, mapped

View as Map

To help curious homebuyers know which areas in Washington, D.C. have the oldest residences on the market, Curbed mapped each of them, ranging from a single-family home built in 1798 to a mixed-use shop constructed in 1880.

For history buffs, Curbed would suggest heading to Georgetown. Out of the 10 most historic homes currently on the D.C. market, almost half are located in the Northwest neighborhood.

MRIS, the only mid-Atlantic region’s real estate home search site, and national real estate brokerage Redfin provided Curbed the listings, which are mapped below from oldest to youngest. Neither source independently verified the year built for each listing.
