Tucked away in the heart of Kingman Park sits a gem that’s waiting just for you. The jaw-dropping doesn’t end at the stunning curb appeal, but it’s a fitting introduction. When you walk through the front door you immediately sense the calm and airiness this space provides. The home has been tastefully updated over time, but it retains features and details that make homes in this historic neighborhood so special. Stretch out to your fullest in this four-bedroom that makes work (or play) from home simple. Enjoy the outdoors? The shockingly large yard is fit for BBQs, pups, and general fun with everyone you love and probably all of their friends, too. If you start to feel a little warm from the DC heat while sitting on your front OR back porch, then retreat to your large living room space on the main level or your bonus living space in the walkout basement to take in your favorite movie or show. Four bedrooms, including a large primary bedroom upstairs, plus a large garden level bedroom, are perfect for you, your family and guests, and your WFH office. Neighborhood highlights include jumping on the streetcar for a quick trip to everything H St has to offer, being a chip away from the Langston Golf Course & Driving Range, and having easy access to the newly completed fields and playgrounds over at RFK. Also, a short stroll will take you to the Stadium-Armory metro stop for simple access to the rest of the city. Prefer to drive? There are two off-street parking spots to make life easy.

Kingman Park is a residential neighborhood in the Northeast quadrant of Washington, D.C. The neighborhood is composed primarily of two-story brick row houses (most of which were built when the neighborhood was founded in 1928). Kingman Park is named after Brigadier General Dan Christie Kingman, the former head of the United States Army Corps of Engineers (for whom nearby Kingman Island and Kingman Lake are also named). 


Prior to the 1920s, Kingman Park was a largely uninhabited, wooded area located near the D.C. city dump. The area was originally on the shores of the Anacostia River. Between 1860 and the late 1880s, large mudflats (“the Anacostia flats”) formed on both banks of the Anacostia River due to deforestation and the heavy erosion it caused. In 1805, local landowner Benjamin Stoddert built a wooden bridge over the Anacostia River at the present site of Benning Bridge. The bridge was sold to Thomas Ewell, who in the 1820s sold it to William Benning. Thereafter the structure was known as Benning’s Bridge (or Benning Bridge). The wooden bridge was rebuilt several times after 1805. This included construction of a steel bridge in 1892, and the current beam-concrete pier bridge in 1934. Kingman Park is currently part of both Ward 6 and Ward 7. Prior to 2001, all of Kingman Park had been part of Ward 6. But with neighborhoods east of the Anacostia River losing population while areas west of it gained voters, the D.C. City Council was forced to redraw each ward’s boundaries in order to maintain equal populations. In June 2001, the D.C. City Council adopted and Mayor Anthony A. Williams signed the “Ward Redistricting Act,” which transferred 1,840 residents of Kingman Park from Ward 6 to Ward 7. 


In May 2018, D.C.’s Historic Preservation Review Board voted to designate Northeast D.C. neighborhood Kingman Park as a historic district.
