Warwick Village is named for the Warwick Estate, the country home of 19th century DC businessman and philanthropist Frank Hume. In the 1950s, Warwick and its surrounding property were sold for development (the estate, which had been on the 2900 block of Landover Street, was demolished in 1953). Originally a development of rental homes, it was converted to townhomes for sale in the 1970s.

The original Warwick Village model features three bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms with 1,100 square feet. Many owners have opened up the kitchens to create an open floorplan. Units currently sell between $500,000 – $600,000.
