District Heights Real Estate

Homes in District Heights are of an older stock, being built from the early 20th-century through to the 1970s, with a few newer builds interspersed in between. 


Many of these homes are smaller Cape Cod and Colonial style cottages, with a simple raised entryway, two small windows, and dormer windows above. The loft and basement spaces add some extra variety and the large yard to home ratio creates even more opportunities for activities and uses, like rear parking, gardening, or patio spaces.


A typical home in District Heights might range between 1,000 and a little over 2,000 square feet in size, with twin dormer windows, a chimney, two forward windows, and a simple side-gabled layout finished in red brick with additional vinyl siding accents. Sometimes windows have awnings or shutters. Larger homes may have classical details, covered entries or porches, and even garrison house designs. 


Along the northern section of District Heights there are attached apartment communities, like Woodland, Woodland Springs, and  Marbury Townhomes.
