The community is one of the most cohesive collections of residential properties in the city, evoking the image and feeling of an old English village. Most properties are row houses, with generous setbacks enhanced by lush gardens and planted terraces, following a picturesque layout along winding lanes, with circles and crescents that were inspired by historic precedents. There diminutive commercial center on Foxhall Road with its small octagonal tower is particularly charming and notable. The district includes about 388 contributing buildings from 1911 to 1935.
