In Hidden Places, UrbanTurf takes a look at some of the charming but lesser-known one- and two-block streets in the District. This week, we check out Hillyer Place NW, a quiet block in the center of the action.

Hillyer Place is a one-way street just off Connecticut Avenue (map). It’s two blocks off the circle and just one from the Metro, but you’d never know it from walking down this quiet street during the day. It’s only accessible from 21st Street NW.

The street is dominated by elegant three-story rowhouses, most with English basements, and a spot on the block comes at a steep premium. One of the homes on Hillyer, a three-bedroom, 2.5 bath townhouse, sold in April for $1.9 million. A four-bedroom, three-bath house across the street sold a year ago for $2.15 million.

Hillyer Place is unique for its variety of historic architectural styles, and the National Park Service notes this in a feature on the Dupont Circle Historic District. Most of the historic homes on the block are either Queen Anne or Richardsonian Romanesque, according to NPS.
