Bloomingdale Real Estate, Washington DC

If there is one thing you need to know about homes for sale in Bloomingdale it’s this—row houses. Like many Washington DC neighborhoods, Bloomingdale has some of the finest examples of narrow conjoined residences anywhere. And they come in an amazing architectural variety given that most were built between 1920 and 1930.

The diversity of Bloomingdale real estate styles is due in large part to one of the primary developers—Harry Wardman—perhaps the most notable DC builder of all when it comes to the tall side-to-side residences that were an early response to the need for worker housing. This small neighborhood wasn’t included in the original District planning for some reason, even though it’s centrally located. Once rural farmland, the community was subdivided after the arrival of paved streets and streetcars in the 1890s. The majority of construction would still lag however, until 1920 when a residential expansion kicked into high gear.

Bloomingdale (Washington DC) Neighborhood Information

Bloomingdale is bounded by Channing Street to the north, North Capitol Street to the east, Florida Avenue to the south and Second Street to the west. Its neighbors include Edgewood and Eckington to the east with Howard University to the northwest. 

There’s a fairly wide range of prices for homes for sale in Bloomingdale, starting around $250,000 and climbing above the million dollar mark. The pricier listings are sometimes row houses sold in their entirety as single-family residences. Values have climbed steeply in recent years and there aren’t as many short sales or fixer-uppers as there once were. 

More About Real Estate in Bloomingdale - Washington DC

In Bloomingdale, row houses come with stoops, turrets, spires or no spires, with rounded bays or squared-off bays, with Beaux Arts ornate design or Federally-inspired simplicity. There are also later examples of porch-front versions with Mansard roofs. You’ll find a lot of active listings described as condos for sale given that many of the row houses have been divided into multiple residences.

What You'll Find in DC's Bloomingdale Neighborhood

Washington DC's Bloomingdale neighborhood features a small business district with coffee houses, galleries and yoga studios, along with restaurants like Window Café, Big Bear Café and Thai X-ing. There’s also Timor Bodega offering organic foods and locally ground produce, as well as a local farmers market. Residents also enjoy the Crispus Attucks Park.

In the works are proposals for new mixed-use developments featuring upscale residential units over ground floor retail-many who live in Bloomingdale, however, would just as soon avoid the type of commercialization that has become so common in other parts of the city.
