This gorgeous sun-drenched apartment is waiting for you to make it your home! Large windows extend across each room, allowing plenty of natural light to soak in. Dark wood floors gleam throughout.

The kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances and fresh white cabinets. The ample dining and living space allows for entertaining, a play area, or workspace, depending on your interests. The primary bedroom is quite large and also allows for at-home workspace if desired and links to the primary bathroom with tub.
The second bedroom has an ample amount of space and is across the hall from the second bathroom with a shower. Each room has a separate thermostat for heat or air conditioning that allows for maximum comfort of every occupant! With a 24-hour concierge, this building is well cared for, secure and very convenient. If stairs pose a challenge, the building is handicap-accessible. The rooftop has lounge chairs, tables/chairs, and a wooden pergola for shade in the summer. If that wasn’t enough, it also has Wi-Fi access! There are lovely gardens behind the building that have been carefully planned for color and beauty for all four seasons. This also includes walking paths and benches for ample enjoyment. Included in the many amenities, this building also has a gym, storage space in the basement, and a garage with bicycle racks. The location in NW Washington is absolutely walkable and amazing.

Van Ness Metro Station is a 10-minute walk, as is Tenleytown. There is also a bus stop directly outside the building on Connecticut Avenue! You don’t want to miss out on this property. Come and make it your own.
Some people call it “North Cleveland Park”, others say “Van Ness” or even “Upper Van Ness”, and in a pinch it’s just “that neighborhood right between the Van Ness and Tenleytown Metros”. Most people don’t know what to call it, or even that it has a name.
But it does. It’s Wakefield.
Wakefield is the official name of the neighborhood bounded by Connecticut Avenue, Nebraska Avenue, and Albemarle Street. It was created in the 1930s, as Washington’s growing population started to spread north along Connecticut and east from Tenleytown. It was then that developer R.B. Warren bought two square miles of undeveloped land, built 100 brick homes (a step up from the wooden houses common in the area at the time), and named his new development “Wakefield.” The name stuck, and 85 years later it is still the neighborhood’s official designation, according to the DC Office of Tax and Revenue, which maintains the city’s Real Property Assessment Database.
Wakefield today remains a largely residential area, composed of single-family homes and a number of apartment buildings along Connecticut Avenue. It also encompasses Murch Elementary and DC Fire Engine Company #31, historic Grant Road, and the commercial strip along Connecticut between Fessenden and Nebraska. It is, as others have noted, equidistant from both the Van Ness and Tenleytown Metro stations, which is one of the things that helps make Wakefield “one of D.C.’s most popular neighborhoods,” according to the real-estate listing service MRIS.
