washington heights - washington dc

Washington Heights is full of history and full of architectural significance. Noted as having one of the most eclectic collections of historic buildings in the area, the neighborhood’s architecture tells the story of development from its beginnings through today.

It’s now on the National Register of Historic Places. The triangular-shaped neighborhood of Washington Heights sits right in the middle of Adams Morgan and was first platted in the late 1800s.

Originally developed as a streetcar suburb on the outskirts of town, Washington Heights eventually grew into an urban neighborhood with a bustling commercial corridor. The area proved popular because homes in the neighborhood were within walking distance of a horse-drawn streetcar.

While there are certainly some impressive homes in DC to choose from, some buyers are instead choosing to bring new life to some long-standing residences. Some Washingtonians are hard at work, turning some of the city’s former foreign embassies into private homes.

One such example includes the former Libyan Embassy in Kalorama. Built close to the turn-of-the-century, the home was designed in a Flemish Revival style.

It had been unoccupied for about 25 years and was in poor shape at the time a new owner came into the picture. A real estate developer had previously attempted to turn the property into condos, but when that fell through, the building went up back up for sale and a family snapped it up.

After nearly a year of making plans and

If you don’t want to have to depend on a car to get around, DC is a great place to live. While some neighborhoods rely on public transportation, other neighborhoods are extremely walkable.

DC as a whole ranks extremely well for its walkability. In fact, DC’s WalkScore ranking is number seven in terms of the most walkable large cities in the nation.

In recent years, Redfin put DC in 4th place when it comes to its list of ‘The Best Cities for Living Without a Car’. Some neighborhoods also rank particularly high all on their own in terms of walkability.

For example, Dupont Circle is a great place to get around by walking. Most residents have an easy stroll to the closest Metro station, plus the neighborhood also includes a number of restaurants

reed-cooke - washington dc

Tucked away within the Adams Morgan neighborhood emerges a delightful urban neighborhood called Reed-Cooke. While small in size, the neighborhood of Reed-Cooke is rich in terms of diversity.

Made up of just ten city blocks, thousands of people make their home in Reed-Cooke. While considered by some as simply part of Adams Morgan, Reed-Cooke is officially one of the larger community’s four small and distinct neighborhoods.

Found between 16th and 18th streets, between U Street and Columbia Road, Reed-Cooke gains its namesake from two schools; H.D. Cooke Elementary and Marie Reed Elementary. Those locations were themselves named after a former community leader and the District’s first governor.

The land that now makes up Reed-Cooke used to be

chinese embassy condos - 2001 19th st nw

For those looking for a bit more history in their DC-area home, there are churches, schools and even embassies that have been remade into multi-residential space. One such example is the Chinese Embassy.

For residents, the building has quite a story to tell. The unique building affords a range of floor plans and a range of delights for

A number of DC neighborhoods have had eyebrow raising names over the years. It’s likely older residents may recall such names as Swampoodle and Civic Betterment.

It’s some of the newer neighborhood names, however, that have been raising eyebrows for different reasons. It’s not particularly because of the uniqueness of the names, but sometimes it’s that they’re getting names from developers eager to help create the next trendy area.

Take for example the neighborhood of North End Shaw. A developer first started using the name about five years ago as a marketing term to distinguish the development and offer some sense of its location in the DC area.

Flash forward a few years and North End Shaw now boasts several new apartment

The Matrix - 1529 14th St NW DC

They are some of DC’s coolest condo buildings today, but all share a unique history. Many of them use used to be auto showrooms. While it may be hard to imagine these days, the neighborhood of Logan Circle once gained the moniker of “Automobile Row”, due to the many garages and showrooms that spanned 14th Street.

While the neighborhood had its ups and downs over the years, many of those old properties have more recently been transformed into exciting residential properties. They may retain some of the original architecture, but the interiors are refreshingly modern.

In particular, The Matrix on 14th Street was once home to a car dealership. These days you won’t find parked vehicles for sale, but rather loft-style condos topping retail space.
