Welcome to Kenyon Square! Stylish 1BR 1BA condo in the heart of Columbia Heights! This fantastic residence includes garage parking, wood floors, brand new carpeting in the bedroom, and high ceilings throughout. Open kitchen with granite counters, custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and gas range. Friendly building with 24hr front desk, expansive community roof deck with amazing views of DC, gym, library, and more! Close to Giant, Yes Market and Trader Joe’s. Columbia Heights Metro(Green/Yellow line) right at your door. Nearby dining and nightlife include El Chucho, Bad Saint, Wonderland, Red Rocks, The Coupe, and so many others! Just a short walk to 14th St corridor, Park View, and Upsher St!

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!
