A Tree-Filled Neighborhood Tucked Within DC Limits

Where can you find tall oak trees lining the streets, beautiful houses sitting on grassy lawns, and wide avenues winding along rolling hills? Surprisingly, right in our nation's bustling capital!

Kent, like its neighbor The Palisades, is one of few neighborhoods that offers spacious single-family homes inside of DC limits.

Though seemingly far from the buzz of Downtown Washington, Kent is close to some of the best shopping, dining, recreation, and entertainment that the district has to offer. In just minutes, you can expand your culinary palate at the restaurants lining MacArthur Boulevard, discover Civil War history at Battery Kemble Park, paddle the Potomac from Fletcher's Boathouse, or peruse the latest art exhibits at The Kreeger Museum.
