Homes for Sale in Washington, WV

Washington is a census-designated place in Wood County west of the city of Parkersburg in West Virginia. The town sits along the Ohio River, bordering Blennerhassett, Lubeck, and New England’s communities. Washington’s land area is mixed-use, with industrial and logistics facilities occupying most of the riverfront land area. These companies employ a significant portion of residents living in the community, creating a unique small-town feel for Washington. Most residents know one another creating a distinct social connection you only find in small towns.

The hillside areas of the town are primarily private properties with several farmsteads and smaller single-family houses. However, the main bulk of the area’s supply is suburban properties centered along Dupont Road to the south. Properties typically range around the $200,000 price point, making homes in Washington a bit pricier than other towns in the region. Although a bit pricier, these properties, however, also come with larger home lots. There is no uniform design for most homes in Washington, as many residences were constructed as the lot was purchased. You can find a mix of Tudor-style homes, ranch-style homes, and Colonials, to name a few. Other hillside properties and farmsteads also follow suit for custom designs, with several coming with classical colonial plantation-style designs that retain the original architecture of the founding years of the region.

What's To Love

Washington offers a distinctly small-town feel that's perfect for buyers looking for a new home to move into with their family. The area is also quite far from the metropolitan area's busier urban streets, perfect for those looking to live far from a busy city center.

What's Not To Love

As a relatively small town and bedroom community, there are very few established amenities, attractions, and public services readily available to families living in Washington. Residents will have to take a short drive into Parkersburg for most of their day to day needs.
