If your perfect Sunday includes participating in a drum circle in the District’s Meridian Hill Park, followed by a stroll to Lauriol Plaza restaurant for a margarita and an enchilada, or perhaps listening to jazz on U Street, the Embassy may be your perfect new home.
The Embassy, a landmark apartment building from the 1920s, has been converted recently into contemporary condominiums with historic architectural elements.
The building is located at 1613 Harvard St. in Columbia Heights, two blocks from the Columbia Heights Metro station and within easy walking distance of the U Street corridor and all the shops, restaurants and nightlife in the revitalized Columbia Heights neighborhood.
Amenities such as two grocery stores plus Target, Best Buy, and Bed, Bath and Beyond stores are nearby, along with nightlife venues such as Wonderland, Tonic, the Raven and more. The options for culture and nightlife are endless, with the ability to walk to Adams Morgan, the U Street corridor and even Dupont Circle from this location or to use the Metro system to reach other parts of the city.
For residents who prefer a car-free lifestyle, a Zipcar location is within a few blocks of the Embassy for times when access to a car is helpful.
In addition to the location near nightlife, the Embassy provides access to parks and has treetop views from many condominium homes. Many of the homes have private balconies, and the building includes an elegant renovated lobby, a media room and a fitness center.
All of the one- and two-bedroom homes at the Embassy have 9-foot ceilings, oversized bedrooms, walk-in closets and open living areas.
