Welcome home. From the moment you enter this spectacular and rare, 2,023 square foot home in Columbia Heights; you will be greeted by high ceilings and tons of natural light. Completed in 2018 and designed by Kube Architecture, this condo features a spacious, open floor plan layout with large windows on three sides of the home, a feature rarely found in condos. The beautifully appointed space occupies the entire first floor and a portion of the second floor of a duplex single-family home.
The kitchen features custom German cabinetry, Krion countertops, and Bosch appliances. The 7-inch white oak floors run throughout the home. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, a full bathroom and a great flex space that could be a den, office or additional storage. Accompanying the interior square footage, there is also a private front porch, private rear deck, and back yard, making this home perfect for entertaining, relaxing, and working from home. Included with the unit is secure parking. Conveniently located near the Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro Station and endless restaurants and bars including favorites like Hook Hall, Call your Mother Deli, St.Vincent Wine Bar, Taqueria Habanero, Pho Viet and more!
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!
