Meridian Crescent Condominiums For Sale
Located at 2200 17th Street NW, Washington, DC 20009 | Adams Morgan
Completed in 2005, the Meridian Crescent condominiums enjoy a prime piece of Adams Morgan territory. Located at 2200 17th Street at the corner of Crescent Place in Washington DC’s 20009 zip code, this four story structure is home to just 29 luxury residences. The building is right between Meridian Hill Park and 18th Street—the latter being the site of so many popular restaurants and retail boutiques.
This is an area that has seen a lot of construction in recent years. But rather than going the full modernist route, the developers of this boutique building chose a fairly traditional brick row house look with sculpted cornice trim augmented by more contemporary accents, such as giant floor-to-ceiling windows.
Condos for sale at Meridian Crescent include one-bedroom flats and two-story penthouses with two bedrooms and a den. Floor plans are unusually spacious, ranging from 988 t0 2,041 square feet. Some units have balconies and all condos have high-quality finishes and full-sized washing machines and dryers. The interiors are contemporary and open without hewing to industrial-chic trends, with high ceilings, beautiful Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, large walk-in closets and gourmet kitchens with granite counters, GE Profile appliances and maple cabinets. The elegant bathrooms feature super-long limestone vanities, Kohler fixtures and huge frameless showers.
Condos for sale don’t pop up too often here, given their relatively small number. But when they do, prices generally start in the mid-$500’s and climb to over a million dollars. This pet-friendly building is within easy walking distance of the new Harris Teeter, as well as the historic urban structured park from which it gets part of its name. Meridian Hill Park is well known for its terraced waterfalls, statues and community gatherings such as the famed Sunday Drum Circle.
And as mentioned earlier, there’s also all the fabulous bars, eateries and coffee shops along 18th Street, just one block to the west. You’ll also find a number of other recently built boutique condominiums in immediate area, including the Lofts at Adams Morgan, 1700 Kalorama Lofts and Adams Row, as well as renovated antique classic like 1661 Crescent Place.
More About the Adams Morgan Neighborhood
The Meridian Crescent condos enjoy a prime location in the northern part of Adams Morgan. This area was once part of John Porter’s sprawling Meridian Hill estate where a large mansion was built in 1819. Later in the same century, residential subdividing began in earnest with embassies, apartment buildings, hotels and row houses. Prior to the naming of Adams Morgan in the 1950s, the neighborhood was often referred to as Columbia and 18th (an intersection just a few blocks north of the condos).
Adams Morgan was one of the first DC neighborhoods to begin a revitalization trend in the aftermath of the urban decline of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. A lively nightclub scene along with an expanded presence of the arts community helped regenerate interest in the area, especially given the rock bottom prices for real estate in that era. The thirst for fixed-up historic Victorian row houses, apartment building condo conversions and new construction like the Meridian Crescent has continued unabated. All these years after the first wave of the DC renaissance, Adams Morgan is still a trendy place to live, even if the dance clubs aren't quite as wild as they once were.
Among the many popular 18th Street corridor restaurants are Mellow Mushroom, Southern Hospitality, Mintwood Palace, Roofers Union, Sakuramen Ramen Bar, Brothers and Sisters, Meze, Smoke and Barrel and Madam's Organ, just to name a few!
Getting Around the Neighborhood
Residents at Meridian Crescent have the option of a secure parking garage—a luxury in a city where there’s so little space and so many people. With 16th Street less than a block away to the east, it’s easy to roll out of the garage and head south to Downtown DC.
For those who seek to limit their carbon footprint, the Columbia Heights Metro Station with Green and Yellow Line service is .9 miles to the north. The U Street/African-American Civil War Memorial/Cardoza Station with Green and Yellow Lines is a touch closer at .8 miles, while the Woodley Park-Zoo/Adams Morgan Metro Station with Red Line service is just over a mile away on the other side of Rock Creek Park.
This is a walk-friendly neighborhood and you’ll also see locals availing themselves of bicycles, skateboards and electric scooters to get from one place to another. Imagine what Washington, DC’s gentility from centuries past would think if they could see all these new modes of transportation?
