The Monterey at 1445 N St. is among the many appealing renovation projects in Northwest Washington. This contemporary midrise condominium building is set on a quiet street between Scott, Thomas and Logan circles.

Offering a prime location for urban living, unit 106 in the Monterey is on the market for $474,999. This two-bedroom, two-bath home has about 900 finished square feet.

Condominium association fee of $274 per month covers maintenance, management, master insurance policy, sewer, water, and removal of snow and trash. The Monterey has a secure entrance, so residents must buzz visitors into the foyer, which has a marble floor.

Located on the first floor, this home has an open floor plan with a living and dining area open to the kitchen and a breakfast bar. The living area has hardwood floors and windows with blinds, plus a ceiling fan.

The home has recently been painted, which adds to its fresh appeal.

The white kitchen includes ceramic tile floors and appliances that include a built-in microwave, a gas stove, a refrigerator and a dishwasher. A closet next to the kitchen has a stacked washer and dryer.

The master bedroom includes a bump-out nook with tall windows on two sides, plus an additional triple window facing N Street. The bedroom has crown moldings and carpeting. Along one wall is a mirrored double closet with built-in organizers. Near the door to the master is another closet with organizers.

The master bath includes ceramic tile floors, a ceramic tile shower with glass doors and a new sink.

Nearby, the second bedroom has a mirrored wall of closets with organizers. The adjacent bath includes ceramic tile floors and a combination tub and shower with a ceramic tile surround.

The home includes a security system.

Beginning with the introduction of the Studio Theatre into the Logan Circle area, entrepreneurs began to recognize the architectural beauty of the town homes, row houses and apartments along the side streets and the potential for urban revitalization along 14th Street.

Now renovated homes, apartments and condominiums are part of a vibrant community that links Dupont and Logan circles and the U Street corridor.

While many downtown residents choose not to keep a car, rental parking is available nearby for residents who own an automobile. A car is not a necessity for living in this part of the city, which offers access to entertainment, dining and everyday needs within a few blocks.

Residents can walk to the theater, shop at the local Whole Foods, enjoy a workout at a fitness center, shop for contemporary furnishings and dine at countless restaurants - all without a car.

To leave the neighborhood, residents can walk to Farragut North or Dupont Circle to catch a Red Line Metro train or walk to McPherson Square for the Blue and Orange lines.
