Columbia Heights Homes and Condos for Sale

Columbia Heights is a neighborhood well-known for its diverse multicultural community and strong neighborhood pride. With its concentration of schools, housing options, and mix of national retail and local eateries, residents of all ages have found a reason to put down roots. It acquariered a historical significance when developers eyed the area of Columbia Heights with a desire to build residences that would attract wealthy politicians and government office holders. After the demographic changes in the 19th century, a new Metro station sparked a renaissance in Columbia Heights in 1999. Retail establishments quickly claimed footholds and were followed by a growing number of independent businesses.

Columbia Heights has experienced a rebirth in recent years and is now a bustling cultural epicenter with top rated restaurants and activities serving people from all backgrounds. Since its renaissance, Columbia Heights has seen a diverse group of people flock to the area looking to experience all of what the neighborhood and the nation’s capital has to offer.

Columbia Heights is a diverse community with a rich culture and bustling economy. The community itself is peaceful during the days and nights, home to mostly single family homes. Columbia Heights is known for versatile nightlife and entertainment options. Ethnic theater and music plays an important role in nightlife with venues such as the GALA Hispanic Theater nearby.

The Story District lets you partake of beverages and share your own dramatic moments and the 9:30 Club offers intimate music options and excellent sound quality. Columbia Heights offers housing and lifestyle options to fit almost any need. With easy access to both downtown and outlying areas, residents can commute without stress and enjoy the amenities of the neighborhood when not working.

Though Columbia Heights has seen its share of major new construction populated by chain retailers, the neighborhood still feels a bit rough around the edges in a decidedly good way. From the corner bodega to your favorite hole-in-the-wall ethnic restaurant, Columbia Heights retains its urban appeal.

WHAT NOT TO EXPECT

Energetic, long nights.

THE MARKET

There are more affordable homes and newly constructed condos in this area.

There’s a wide variety of options, from big new condo buildings and majestic four-story row houses to smaller, older multi-family structures, more humble row houses, and public housing complexes. But while the neighborhood has some impressive row houses around its center that hover in the $1 million range, smaller row homes lying to the north and east tend to be less expensive than what you would find in the aforementioned neighborhoods. Three-bedroom homes sell for an average of $305,000, and four-bedrooms go for around $500,000. The hottest properties in the area tend to be new condo units, not single-family homes.
