The northwest DC neighborhood of Palisades is known for its small-town charm and scenic views of the Potomac River. Naturally, Palisades’ residents become very attached to this small-town-in-a-big-city vibe and rarely move away, so houses don’t often go on the market. But with the March 10th grand opening of Foxhall Ridge, a new development of 32 luxury townhomes that reflect the architecture of the area, home buyers will have more options.

The townhomes of Foxhall Ridge consist of two distinct styles. Built in the brownstone tradition, The Terraces range in size from 3,000 to 4,300 square feet, with bedrooms as large as 20-by-17 square feet. The Enclave townhomes are built in the Federal style of the late 1700s and come in just shy of 2,100 square feet.

Each home at Foxhall Ridge has oak hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and cabinetry from Cardell. Many of the townhomes have features that city dwellers count as luxuries: great rooms, terraces with double-sided fireplaces, two-car garages and rooftop decks with sweeping views of DC’s skyline. And with The Terraces, homeowners even have the option of adding an elevator.

Energy conservation and green space were central when the architects were designing Foxhall Ridge. Though the townhomes are large and spacious, all exterior walls have foam insulation that eliminates drafts and reduces energy consumption, keeping the homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Trees line the streets of the community, and there are several private gardens and a central courtyard.

Foxhall Ridge is located less than a mile from Georgetown’s high-end boutiques and restaurants, and the C&O Canal, a picturesque walkway ideal for walking and biking. In the opposite direction, MacArthur Boulevard has a quaint commercial area with a number of highly-praised restaurants, including Black Salt and Makoto.

The Terraces—three of which are currently available for Spring 2012 move-in—range in price from $1,579,850 to $1,675,910, and Enclave townhomes range in price from from $944,990 to $1,057,490, and are all available for sale pre-build out.

The builder has released 17 homes for sale with the remaining 15 to be released for sale by row at future dates, with the entire community slated to be completed in 18 months. A model home at Foxhall Ridge is now open and there will be a grand opening for the project this Saturday and Sunday from 11:00am to 4:00pm.
