2730 ORDWAY ST NW #2


Welcome to Ordway Gardens - a tucked-away oasis in the middle of practically everything. This well-imagined, two-level unit features three large bedrooms with a full bath on each level giving it enough space to make some single-family homes jealous. What really excited the current owners about this space is the dual living areas (one on each level), and the option to use the lower area as a play area, office, or general flex place. Updates abound with an efficiently laid out kitchen and a spa-like bath on the main level to unwind after a long day in the city. However, with everything the neighborhood offers, you won't be homebound for too long. On top of being easily accessible to the metro (a 2-minute walk), the area features DC staples like Vace Italian Deli, Medium Rare, Nanny O'Brien's, Spices, and Indique. For those practical needs, you can quickly and easily visit Streets Market, Target, CVS, & Yes! Organic Market for all your shopping needs. Gas, water & sewer included in the condo fee and it's a very pet friendly community. Lastly - don't overlook the incredibly easy access to the National Zoo and Rock Creek Park and enjoy the endless amounts of activities they offer. If you were to make this home you’ll be joining a kind, welcoming neighborhood offering frequent activities and get-togethers while living in a quiet corner of the community.

First used as the Civil War encampment of Fort Kearns, Forest Hills/Van Ness developed around the mill industry. Large, provincial estates were developed during the 1900s, becoming a desirable residential community, a trend that continues today.

Nicknamed Van Ness after nearby University of the District of Columbia’s Van Ness campus, Forest Hills is a quiet residential neighborhood. The notable architecture, in contrast with much of D.C.’s traditional rowhouses and Colonials, is bold, modern and energetic. About a third of the housing properties are rentals, with the remaining two-thirds being single-family, owner-occupied. Built upon tree-rich hills. glass and metal structures, stucco mansions, and classic D.C. homes occupy space in the neighborhood, creating a refreshing variety of residences.

The neighborhood is rich in activity and intellect. Several embassies are located in the area. UDC’s Van Ness campus, Howard University School of Law campus, The Levine School of Music and the Edmund Burke School all call Forest Hills home. The Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens, once the home of philanthropist Marjorie Merriweather Post, is located within the neighborhood near Rock Creek Park. The Hillwood, originally a 36-room Georgian Colonial estate, houses Marjorie’s extensive House of Romanov collection of art.
