New in D.C.: The Redstone
Question of the Day
New condominiums are few and far between in the District these days, so buyers often compete with one another for the opportunity to live in a new building. In the Park View neighborhood of Northwest Washington, within walking distance of three Metro stations, five new homes are available in the Redstone condominium.
Park View, located north of Howard University and adjacent to the campus of the Armed Forces Retirement Home (originally known as the Old Soldiers’ Home), is a residential neighborhood in a quiet section of the city. The name Park View dates to the earliest development of the area, when residents were welcome to use the grounds of the Old Soldiers’ Home as a public park.
Today, Park View residents can walk to three Metro stations - Columbia Heights, U Street/Cardozo and Shaw/Howard University - and have easy access to several Metrobus lines. The website Walkscore.com, which rates neighborhoods on their “walkability” or proximity to shops, transportation and services, gives Park View an 88 score, classifying it as “very walkable.”
Bordering on Columbia Heights and Petworth, Park View is beginning to experience some redevelopment, particularly along Georgia Avenue Northwest, where new businesses are starting to open. Residents also can walk to shops and restaurants in Columbia Heights and take Metro or Metrobus to other parts of the city for night life, cultural activities and commuting.
At the Redstone condominium, 3577 Warder St. NW, residents can enjoy a fenced-in green area and community garden. Parking is available, although the condominium’s location makes this a pedestrian-friendly place to live.
The distinctive modern architecture of this midrise building includes a bright-red brick exterior with stone accents and oversized windows that wrap around one corner of the building.
Inside, each of the two-bedroom, two-bath homes has 950 square feet of living space. The homes have contemporary-style floor plans with cherry-stained oak hardwood flooring in the living areas, ceramic tile flooring in the baths, recessed lighting, brushed-chrome detailing and a video security system in each unit. Each kitchen has granite counters and stainless steel appliances with a choice of dark- or light-wood cabinets.
The homes are priced from $349,900 to $379,900, each with a monthly condominium fee of $254.
A typical floor plan has an entrance into a hallway with hardwood flooring leading into the open living and dining area, which is open to the center-island kitchen. The living and dining area has windows on two sides and a glass door to a balcony.
The master bedroom has a double-door closet and a private full bath with a combination tub and shower. The second bedroom also has a double-door closet.
This home also features a second full bath with a shower, a closet with a stacked washer and dryer, and a linen closet.
