Columbia Heights, Washington, DC, USA

This large (1400ft²/130m²), two-story, sunny flat feels like a house in the suburbs but offers all the conveniences of condo living in the city – including a gym and off-street parking.

Sitting on a hill in the middle of the city and with two balconies, you get the best views in the city – panoramic vistas of Washington’s most impressive sights, including the US Capitol building, the Library of Congress, sports stadiums and urban neighborhoods.

The condo building is on the National Register of Historic Places. Designed by the famous Harry Wardman, it was Washington’s largest luxury apartment complex when it was built in 1915. The building and the neighborhood include many gay singles and couples.

This beautifully renovated flat includes a kitchen, dining room, living room, and laundry room all on the first floor and three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the second floor. It is both stylish and comfortable.

“The World within a neighborhood” – that is what many call this part of Washington, DC. It is the city’s most diverse and densely populated neighborhood and it has everything to offer – restaurants, nightlife, shopping, theaters, art galleries, athletic clubs, tree-lined streets with traditional Washington row houses, elegant embassies and mansions, and historic places.

This condo sits on the border of two of Washington’s most historic and lively neighborhoods – Columbia Heights and U Street. Enjoy everything this vibrant area has to offer and walk to other fabulous urban neighborhoods, including Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan, Logan Circle, and historic Georgetown. You can also walk to Rock Creek Park- a large national park that bisects the city and to the world-famous National Zoo.

Use one of two nearby Metro (subway) stations and multiple bus lines for a quick ride to the White House, national monuments, Smithsonian museums, the Capitol Building and anywhere else in the entire metropolitan region.

Columbia Heights is a great place to call home!

We had a wonderful stay at James's condo in DC this summer as part of a road trip up the east coast! The condo is large and beautiful and centrally located, the secured parking was a big plus. James made everything a breeze with the help of a neighbor to get us checked in. We enjoyed being able to walk to all the great places to eat in the neighborhood.
Thanks again, Chuck and Ray
