A Tour of DC’s Hottest Neighborhood for 2015: Woodridge!

Woodridge recently was announced as the #1 hottest neighborhood in the DMV as reported by real estate research blog Redfin. MG Residential has known the glories for Woodridge for a while now. In fact, we’ve been the #1 sales team in the neighborhood for the past 5 years, and three of our team members live in the Woodridge.

Woodridge has something in store for everyone whether its shopping, reading, eating, going through antiques or having a quiet night out!

2013-05-01-woodridge-final18Book lovers brace yourselves for some good news.  The Woodridge Neighborhood Library will be rebuilt in 2015, allowing readers to take advantage of natural lighting, a reading lounge, conference and meeting rooms, and more. The new library will offer the public a reading terrace for those summer days when one wants to sit around with a book and lounge all day. Another great feature is the third floor, capacity for more than 200 people, study rooms and windows overlooking Langdon Park. The new building will be around 22,500 square feet.

With all that reading you can work up quite an appetite which can be satiated at many great outlets. Good Food Markets LLC which recently won a financial grant from the Mayor’s office aims to serve the entire neighborhood with their organic and locally sourced grocery selection, freshly prepared meals for families and individuals. The locals even get a say on the menu which will be chosen based on feedback from the community. Another local spot Zeke’s Coffee is a coffee lover’s paradise which specializes in organic coffee.  True foodies will enjoy the new supper club restaurant, BeSpoke Kitchen on Rhode Island Ave.

You will have the opportunity to ‘re-find’ furniture as well as experience sophisticated artwork from notable artists and traditional artisans.  You can even try your hand at pottery- District Clay offers wheel and hand-building classes for adults and kids.

Woodridge features a diverse housing stock of mostly detached houses  including a mix of craftsman bungalows and brick colonials from the ’20s and ’30s. The homes are still quite affordable with a median price point of $388,000.
