Columbia Heights Real Estate, Washington DC

Once known for its inner-city blight, the neighborhood of Columbia Heights in Washington, DC has since become a model for urban revitalization. Of course, that also means a change in the cost of homes for sale. Real estate values managed to remain steady during the national housing crisis of the mid-2000s, and have climbed steadily since 2011. Especially known for its colorful row houses, this rectangular-shaped neighborhood has combined a red-hot real estate market with significant retail growth.

Columbia Heights is located northwest of popular Adams Morgan, with ultra-pricy Kalorama to the southwest. A high-density neighborhood, its real estate marketplace is composed almost entirely of condos for sale with just a tiny sliver of detached single-family homes. That is sometimes a matter of interpretation, however, as row houses can be used either as multifamily dwellings or single residences.

Columbia Heights Neighborhood Information

Like much of the DC Metro area, this community dates back to rural farm land. The post-Civil War era brought the construction of large manors and not long after, grand apartment buildings and row houses—the latter being Washington’s answer to the need for worker housing. More recently, the neighborhood has experienced a new construction boom with mixed-use developments featuring ground floor retail and upscale condos for sale.

Columbia Heights Real Estate at a Glance

Row houses in the neighborhood deserve special mention and were constructed in four distinct archetypes. Federal structures, typically built in the late 1800s to early 1900s offered a simple unadorned fashion and were followed by the ornate Victorian/Eastlake period with three or more stories, turrets, front bays and decorative stoops. The two-story Petworth style is particularly common, often built during the 1920s to 1930s with front porches, Mansard roofs and dormers. And finally, the Eclectic style combines all of the above influences.

Real estate for sale in Columbia Heights starts off in the very low six-figures and climb to around two million dollars. At the top end are the rare detached single-family Victorian houses, and entire row houses with up to eight bedrooms. Among community amenities are the renowned Tivoli Theatre, the adjacent Dance Institute of Washington and the Columbia Heights Metro which opened in 1999. Among the many great local restaurants are Cava Mezze Grille, The Heights, Los Hernanos, Maple and Mi Cuba.
