Colorful homes in Washington DC neighborhood

The name Petworth comes from an English town, established more than two centuries ago. Petworth has undergone substantial changes and sizeable shifts throughout its history. Over the last decade, Petworth has become more crowded and trendy. The neighborhood’s Upshur Street has been called D.C.’s “future of dining,” though some recent closures have complicated that picture. But Petworth’s long, multilayered past still shines through. The neighborhood is anchored by the Georgia Avenue-Petworth Metro station on the Green Line and yellow line.

Living in Petworth offers residents an urban feel and most residents own their homes. It is an up-and-coming D.C. neighborhood that’s fun for the whole family. In a revitalized area, Petworth was the location for a new HGTV show called “D.C. Flippers,” where a young, local hip couple flipped homes for huge profits. It appears the show never went beyond its initial pilot episodes. By the beginning of 2018, home flips in the District were down six percent but, in Petworth, the average home flip profit remained about even with previous year levels.
