The Palisades, DC

| A Neighborhood Above and Beyond

High above the C&O canal, where fabulous sunsets linger and old growth trees dapple light on the Capital Crescent Trail running through DC's coveted Palisades neighborhood, you'll find Canal Mews. These two single-family, five-bedroom coastal graystones echo the neighborhood's elevated sensibilities with their English basements, metal roofs and generous two-car garages. And they're taken beyond by a neighborhood with exceptional schools, notable restaurants and all the necessities of life just blocks away. With OPaL's exceptional craftsmanship and a location just above and beyond Georgetown and the Potomac, Canal Mews in Palisades is the epitome of everything discerning homeowners look for in a city home.
