Please ignore days on the market due to city shutdown during COVID-19 quarantine. Great outdoor space to be enjoyed while being socially responsible.*Welcome to 3404 13th Street! From the moment you walk inside this 2 level condo, you will be greeted by brand new bamboo hardwood floors and loads of natural light shining in from the east facing bay window. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo features a modern and sleek designed kitchen with granite countertops, Bosch stainless steel appliances, and bar counter seating.

The shared rooftop deck and private backyard are the perfect spots to wind down with a glass of wine before hitting the city, and all the amazing spots just moments away. Choose from many nearby restaurants and bars, or zip over to Giant and Target to pick up something to enjoy at home. Lastly, don’t forget to take your dog to play at Columbia Heights Dog Park just feet away!
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 multiculti 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!
