1017 MONROE ST NW #2

WASHINGTON | DC

SOLD

There are lots of condos in DC. Lovely, square, cookie-cutter condos. 1017 Monroe is different! When you walk in you immediately feel its charm. This two-level condo has warm hardwood floors, an original fireplace from 1909 on one wall. Large windows, high ceilings. The main level comprises a big open space with plenty of space for a large dining table in one spot, and a sitting area in another. The kitchen is bigger than in most condos, with plentiful counter space and storage, and an exposed brick wall. Off the kitchen is a private deck, big enough for a table and chairs. There is a half-bath on the main level, which is convenient when you have people over. Upstairs (the unit feels like a house) are two bedrooms and a full bath. The front bedroom is very bright and has a lovely view of Monroe and 11th Streets. The rear bedroom is large and sunny. There is a full-size washer dryer on the bedroom level. New HVAC installed in 2019, and new water heater in 2022. Low condo fee (some 2br units in Columbia Heights have condo fees of $800+/month). The location is one of the best in Columbia Heights. Very centrally located, the unit sits away from hustle and bustle of Georgia Avenue and 14th St, but is convenient to both. The dog park at 11th and Park is right there (and the unit is pet friendly). Walk to the Petworth Safeway and Yes Organic Market, or the the Columbia Heights Giant and Target. The dining options surrounding 1017 Monroe are some of the best in the city. The Coupe is a 15 second walk away. Queen's English, Makan, Bad Saint, El Chucho and Wonderland Ballroom are at your doorstep. It's an easy walk to Mescalaro, Habenero, Thip Khao, Little Coco's, Le Caprice, and so much more! Two metros are a ten minute walk away (Columbia Heights and Petworth). Come see! Offers by Tuesday, 28 June, 6PM.

With its mix of grand and humble historic buildings (rowhouses, embassies along 16th Street NW), Columbia Heights reels in a mix of creatives, international professionals and, thanks to its leafy parks, bikers and picnickers. It’s one of DC’s most densely populated ‘hoods, too, supporting a swath of homey restaurants and bars. Plus, a longtime Hispanic population means attractions like the GALA Hispanic Theater and the Mexican Cultural Institute lend the area a multicultural vibe. The area’s main drags are 11th, 14th and 16th streets starting at U Street NW. Along 16th Street, you’ll find embassies and international organizations, most housed in impressive early 19th-century structures with architectural flourishes – turrets, stained glass, balconies. You can check out exhibits on south-of-the-border art and life at the Mexican Cultural Institute, housed in a grand mansion (and one-time Embassy of Mexico) with a mural of that country’s history painted on its interior stairway.

 


Nearby, Meridian Hill Park, a two-level, European style park with terrazzo walls holds fountains, statues and, every Sunday, a lively afternoon drum circle. Restaurants and bars along buzzing 14th Street and mellower 11th Street fill up with young professionals and stroller-pushing families, particularly on weekends. Consider hot spots like Room 11 for cocktails, small plates and breakfast, Thip Khao for the only place in DC to try Laos’ spicy curries and rice dishes and Bad Saint for Filipino cuisine in a cozy, laid-back neighborhood setting. The area, and neighboring ‘hood Mount Pleasant, are ideal for exploring by bike, especially since multiple Capital Bikeshare stations can be found in the vicinity. Just be warned; the area is hilly!
