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.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The convenience of being close to shops and entertainment, with tree-lined residential streets as a backdrop.

14th Street is home to many of the city’s most notable restaurants, bars, and shopping. The nearby neighborhoods Adams Morgan and the U Street Corridor host the city’s most frequented nightlife spots.

THE LIFESTYLE

An area that provides a feeling of urban living while having a relaxed community.

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 area is also home to DC’s historic Tivoli Theater. For less formal entertainment, Columbia Heights offers a selection of open-mic nights and bars with live music. 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 community itself is peaceful during the days and nights, home to mostly single family homes. On 14th street you can find a shopping center with all of the necessities for everyday life.

A great place to live, Columbia Heights provides a suburban feel but not too far from downtown. It is great to raise a family with a few parks located in the area and a lot of bike paths. Housing isn't expensive and there is a good mix of people, diverse and welcoming.

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.

YOU’LL FALL IN LOVE WITH

The convenience and relaxed environment of sitting at a table with friends, combined with the sense of being in familiar surroundings, make for an appealing atmosphere.

Location is key when it comes to Columbia Heights as residents have access to multiple options for public transportation. The Green Line Metro and the Yellow Line Metro are in close proximity to the area. For those who prefer buses, The Circulator, providing transportation across the city, has multiple bus lines that run through the neighborhood connecting residents to different parts of the city. Columbia Heights also offers cheaper living options compared to other neighborhoods in D.C.

The neighborhood is also located near many parks and outdoor areas. For residents with a furry sidekick, Columbia Heights Dog Park is a great area for your animal to let loose as it is an official off-leash dog park. Columbia Heights is also known for its Meridian Hill Park. A fun fact is that its name comes from the fact that the site is located on the exact longitude of the District of Columbia’s original milestone marker back in 1791. Park goers can take in the scenic views, enjoy a picnic, visit the 

fountains and reflecting pools, and follow along with the informational features and exhibits the park has to offer.

One thing for certain is that Columbia Heights is guaranteed to please your taste buds. The cuisine in the area is infused with a variety of cultural flavors. While 14th Street is a bustling section of Columbia Heights, 11th Street is the place to go when you are looking to satisfy your hunger.

Whatever your interests are, Columbia Heights caters to it. The neighborhood is heavily influenced by various cultures making it a unique spot, suitable for people of all backgrounds to live. Whether you are a foodie, an arts-lover, or a shopaholic, you will fall in love with all Columbia Heights has to offer.
