New in D.C.: Nine-unit building in Columbia Heights
Question of the Day
Columbia Heights may be one of Northwest Washington’s hottest neighborhoods, with new restaurants, shops and nightlife options being introduced to the area nearly every month. The restoration of the Tivoli Theatre, followed by the introduction of the DC USA shopping center with big-box stores such as Target, Best Buy, Marshalls and Bed, Bath & Beyond, have transformed this community into a vibrant area with near constant activity.
Residential development in the area includes renovated row houses, apartments and high-rise condominiums. Madison Investments recently introduced Trevelyan House, a new boutique-style condominium with nine homes at 1436 Ogden St. NW.
Residents of Trevelyan House can walk to the Columbia Heights and Petworth Metro stations, along with countless restaurants, shops and entertainment venues. A quick trip on the Metro brings residents to nearly every part of the D.C. area for work, cultural activities or visiting friends.
To attract buyers interested in high-tech features, every buyer will receive an Apple iPad with the home. The building includes free wireless Internet service with routers and repeaters throughout the building, along with wiring for telephone and cable service. The intercom system for the front door can be programmed to any land or cell-phone line to activate the main-door access.
The building has a white roof for heat reflection and higher energy efficiency, and careful attention has been paid to keep the homes quiet, with double-layered subflooring and special sound insulation. The homes have high-efficiency heating and air-conditioning systems, energy-efficient water heaters and low-E windows.
Madison Investments worked with an interior designer to choose the high-end fixtures for the homes and the common areas.
Four of the nine units are available for sale, priced from $299,000 to $409,000, with monthly condominium fees of $187 to $402.
The homes have gourmet kitchens with European cabinets, Silestone countertops, upgraded appliances and attention to details such as slow-closing drawer mechanisms and built-in cutlery dividers. The bathrooms have custom-designed vanities with modern vessel sinks, ceramic tiles and heated flooring in the basement units. The homes have Brazilian cherry hardwood flooring, recessed lighting and spacious closets.
Unit No. 2, a two-bedroom home with 1,226 square feet, is priced from $409,000 with a monthly condominium fee of $402. This two-level home has an upper level with an open living and dining room, an open kitchen with a breakfast bar, a closet and a powder room.
