              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2001

              About the owner: I have lived in Washington DC for over 20 years. I work in news & communications in downtown DC as well as serve as an adjunct prof at Georgetown University. I am an avid cyclist, swimmer and gardener in my spare time.

              Why the Owner Chose Columbia Heights:
              This apartment is one block from the Metro on a lovely tree-lined block with immediate access to restaurants, shopping and grocery. All of Washington's most visited and stunning sites are on the Metro line within just a few short stops from the stop next to the house. Columbia Heights is a vibrant, diverse neighborhood that has an eclectic mix of residents of many ages, cultures, and income levels. It boasts a beautiful mix of turn of the century & 1920’s architecture as well as a mix of big box shopping & national restaurant chains, as well as independent, small restaurants and a very close proximity to DC’s other well-known, popular neighborhoods via, Metro, taxi, bus or by foot. At this point, the mixture of residents is one of the most diverse anywhere in the city.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              While the area’s main drag is home to Target, Best Buy, Panera, Starbucks, and Chipotle, the neighborhood streets are dotted with smaller, independently-owned establishments, like The Heights, a neighborhood American bistro, the Vietnamese restaurant Pho 14, Sticky Fingers vegan bakery, and Room 11 wine bar. Also, 11th Street, a quiet cousin to 14th Street that was recently introduced to readers of The New York Times as “Washington’s hippest new strip” is home to a number of businesses that are distinctly more local and quirky than those on the area’s main drag. There is the massively popular Wonderland bar, Red Rocks Pizzeria, Meridian Pint, Columbia Heights Coffee, and Bloombars, a free and funky performance space. The owner of Tryst, an ever-crowded coffee shop in Adams Morgan, is also planning on opening a diner/bar/coffee shop on the ground floor of 1020 Monroe Street in the next few weeks. Columbia Heights is a public transportation mecca. The Metro station is on the Green Line, with the major transfer stop Gallery Place only eight minutes away. Buses running north and south along 14th Street and 16th Street are some of the city’s busiest, and a Circluator bus runs east and west. Driving in the city is a little less convenient, mostly because parking—particularly close to 14th Street—has gotten tougher and tougher. But the neighborhood is close to major city arteries like 16th Street, Rock Creek Parkway, Rhode Island Avenue (Route 1), and New York Avenue (Route 50). Major Virginia highways like I-66 and the George Washington Parkway are a little farther. There is secure, garage parking available for $20 a day located at the Target down the street. I can give you the pass if you choose to park there. Columbia Heights is one of those rare DC neighborhoods where people of all races, ages, and socioeconomic classes share space, and to many, that - not the revitalized commercial strip - is where its charm lies.
