This is my home. I am also the agent. We have lived on this wonderful street for the past few years and renovated this home, that we love and adore, slowly and thoughtfully. We wanted to preserve her character, while bringing her back to life. We thought we’d live here longer, but life takes us where it will, new beginnings, and ends. We will always, always remember this time and this place, and what has happened in life while being here. I hope we have done her justice, and made our neighbors proud. We owe them a debt of gratitude for their friendship, allowing us into their families, and for being the embracing, loving and extraordinary humans that they are…

Riggs Park Neighborhood

Also known as Lamond-Riggs, Riggs Park benefits from two Metro stations – Fort Totten and Takoma – as well as the K6 and E2/E3/E4 lines. Joggers, bikers and outdoor enthusiasts have opportunities to enjoy recreational locations such as Fort Circle Park’s hiking trail, Lamond and Riggs Road playground and the Metropolitan Branch Trail. The neighborhood is also emerging as a vital village as new franchise restaurants, commercial buildings, apartment buildings and retail are in various stages of the development process. Riggs park is located at the District’s northeastern border and is bounded by Riggs Road NE to the south and east, Eastern Avenue NE to the north, with a western boundary including Blair Road NE, Kansas Avenue NE and North Capitol Street NE.
