"Beautiful Homes in an Upscale Neighborhood"
Woodland Drive NW is a beautiful street that runs from Garfield Street NW and meanders around to Rock Creek Park Drive Park, and the adjoining natural parkland. The street is centrally located in the upscale and expensive part of Northwest Washington, home to politicians, high-ranking government officials and ambassadors and their embassy staffs. The street is filled with multi-million dollar homes, many of which sport multi-car garages, high stone privacy walls, circular driveways and hidden swimming pools in the back. This is not a typical working class neighborhood and not one that you would expect to find in Washington, D.C., which typically emits a gritty-type feel once you get out of the downtown tourist area. Woodland Drive is a very desirable place to live, if you can afford it. It is close, but not right on top of, Georgetown, which offers every type of night life and restaurant you could imagine. It is also close to the U.S. Naval Obervatory and the home of the Vice President of the United States. The closest Metro stop is Woodley Park, which is a longish walk, but on a nice day it can be refreshing, with lots to see along the way, although if you live on this street, I don't think you would be using the Metro -- you would probably be driving a Mercedes or have someone driving it for you. Overall, this is a great place to live if you have a job in the District.
