Cleveland Park is one of the most sought after areas in Northwest DC.  Less than two blocks away from the site is the famous Sidwell Friends School, the Hearst School, and McLean Gardens. Cleveland Park has picturesque topography and extensive use of green space throughout and bordering the area. The Washington National Cathedral Property, the Klingle Valley leading into Rock Creek Park and the Melvin Hazen Park provide the natural boundaries for the Cleveland Park Historic District.
