Northwest, Washington D.C.
Spring Valley, recognized as an upscale neighborhood with its grand homes and winding, tree-line streets, is home to the main campus of American University. The hilly streets are graced by picturesque old oaks, dignified brick Colonials and a few Tudors.
Partly populated by embassies, the neighborhood is also home to the Wesley Theological Seminary and the Washington College of Law. Many prominent Washingtonians call this idyllic neighborhood home and, despite being a military superfund site due to the discovery of unexploded ordnance from testing during WWI, it continues to be an extremely desirable area, commanding impressive housing prices.
