WASHINGTON | DC

Rare find in Columbia Heights! Enjoy city-living on a quiet one-way street just moments from 14th Street and the Columbia Heights Market Square/Center. This light-filled one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo features an in-unit washer and dryer, hardwood floors, and spacious living and bedroom spaces. The kitchen features updated granite countertops, a gas stove, and plenty of counter space/storage. Enjoy multiple closets throughout the home, they can be used as a coat closet or can easily transition into a pantry. This quaint building does not have units that come on the market frequently, so hurry while it lasts! Moments to WMATA Green and Yellow lines as well as bus stops, this home is rated with a 97 “walk-score” on Zillow as well as being located in a great transit hub.

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!
