4533 Verplanck Place NW is nestled within American University Park in the Northwest area of Washington, DC which borders Chevy Chase, Maryland. Named after American University, American University Park is bordered by four major roads: Western Avenue, River Road, Nebraska Avenue and Massachusetts Avenue. The subdivision primarily consists of different architecturally styled single family homes that are situated close together. The area is very appealing as it is within walking distance to metro (Tenleytown-AU Park Station), has recreational parks and centers steps away such as the Friendship Recreation Center and many shops, dining and entertainment to explore.
