Eckington is in right near the heart of the nations capitol, being exactly one mile north of it. This close proximity is one of the reasons why homes in this area are high dollar, well maintained homes. Development of this area began in the late 1800′s, giving the area a rich history. When homes were being built in the area, there were covenants requiring that these homes be expensive (for their time), that has carried through to today, as homes in the area are still well maintained, beautiful, and very desirable.
The homes in this area are within the streets of Rhode Island Avenue to the north, Florida Avenue to the south, North Capitol Street to the west, and Washington Metro’s Brentwood Yard to the east.
