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, Wylie Street NE in the H Street Corridor gets the spotlight.

Looking west down Wylie.
Located just off of H Street between 12th and 13th Streets NE (map), sits Wylie Street. When UrbanTurf debuted Hidden Places last week, several readers immediately suggested we feature this one-block stretch of homes, which is primarily made up of Federal-style rowhouses and is capped with a community garden on the southeast side (the garden was recently under threat to become a parking lot, but the neighborhood lobbied to save it).
The Wylie Street community garden.
A handful of two-bedroom, one-bath listings have sold on Wylie Street in the last 18 months for between $320,000 and $430,000. One home, with a whimsical 1/2 in its address, sold on the block just over a year ago for $345,000. A comparable house with a bit more square footage sold for $429,000 in August. Despite sitting on a single-block, many of the houses have parking.
The green home sold in February of last year for $345,000.
The neighbors are close-knit and have both a website and community listserv to help divvy up the community garden and stay in touch with one another. Want to see what it's like to live on Wylie Street for a night? You can do that, too. One of the lucky locals lists on Airbnb.
