Washington | DC
Welcome to Unit 401 in the Zydeco Lofts. Step out of the elevator that opens directly to the unit and be amazed by the 20′ ceilings, open living space, and wall of windows. Admire the views of the National Cathedral and Rock Creek Park while enjoying beautiful sunsets through the floor-to-ceiling windows. The owner’s suite features a generously-sized closet system and an updated en-suite bathroom with quartz countertops and a towel warmer. In the large loft area work out on your Peloton, set up your WFH office space, create a comfortable space for guests…the only limit is your imagination.
Recent upgrades include completely renovated bathrooms, fully motorized, smart-controlled blinds, white oak engineered floors, stacked Bosch washer and dryer, Nest thermostat and smoke detectors, and updated Lutron light controls. Convenient to everything Mt. Pleasant, Adams Morgan, Kalorama, and Columbia Heights have to offer. Nearby S bus lines and the Columbia Heights Metro make for an easy commute. One off-street deeded parking space conveys.
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!
