Cathedral Heights Real Estate, Washington DC

Located in northwestern Washington, DC, Cathedral is a small neighborhood with amorphous boundaries, often associated with Cathedral Heights. There are local residents who will fiercely argue specific differences for the neighborhoods and even more people who say that’s nonsense—it’s simply two names for the same place.

Compounding the confusion is the number of maps that seem to indicate geographical differences—Cathedral as having a smaller square shape bordering Glover Archbold Park to the west, with the “Heights” neighborhood having a larger and more elongated shape with the same park running down its spine. How can we ever get to the bottom of this morass? Perhaps it’s not really necessary—what is certain is that the enclave is named for the nearby Washington National Cathedral, and when it comes to real estate, Cathedral Heights condos for sale mostly dominate the marketplace, but also some wonderful old single-family homes. You won’t find a huge inventory of active Cathedral Heights real estate listings however, nor is there much in the way of local retail, at least within the smaller definition of boundaries.

Cathedral Heights (Washington DC) Neighborhood Information

Real estate for sale in Cathedral Heights generally has a median list price of around $300,000 but that fluctuates due to the smallish active inventory. Average prices are also influenced by small studio and one-bedroom units at places like The Westchester—a giant historic cooperative built in 1931, located at 4000 Cathedral Avenue. This grand old building even has its own eponymously named restaurant on the ground floor!

What You'll Find on the Cathedral Heights Real Estate Market

While the Cathedral Heights neighborhood is mostly known for old brick structures like Alban Tower, the Idaho, the Warrick, the Westchester and the Worland, there is signs of new progress on the horizon. Cathedral Commons is a mixed-use development project at the corner of Idaho and Newark that will offer 137 apartments, eight townhomes and a Giant grocery. 

No matter the name, Cathedral Heights offers an intriguing, if somewhat limited, mixture of mostly old homes for sale, along with the possibility of both residential and commercial expansion in the future. For now, is a quiet little neighborhood with a beautiful park where you can walk the dog and argue with your neighbors about community boundaries.
