Deal of the Week: BBQing in Columbia Heights

  • July 26, 2010

by Mark Wellborn


A few days ago, this Deal of the Week, may not have appealed to many DC residents as sweltering 100 degree temperatures encompassed the area.

But now that temperatures have returned to reasonable summer levels, this two-bedroom condo in Columbia Heights with a huge outdoor patio made for barbeques certainly looks enticing. In addition to the patio (where the grill and patio furniture convey), the unit has a big open living room with full-size windows, a master bedroom with windows facing the private terrace, and a secure, off-street parking space. But the selling point for this unit is really the outdoor space, which puts the square footage for the unit over 1,400. More details and photos below. For the full listing, click here.

    Looks like a deal to me!

    No. More. Basements.

  1. Jeanne said at 7:44 am on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    Is this a basement? Doesn’t look like one to me.

    I like how the doors open up from the living room right to the outdoor area. If my friends knew I had this patio, I would never be alone.

  1. Albert said at 9:52 am on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    Well, yeah, 1,455 sqaure feet is only if you include the patio.  The sqaure feet of the condo is 855.  That means at the asking price it’s $561 per square foot - a little expensive for 14th and Euclid, if you ask me.  It does have great outdoor space, though.

    anyone see the design star episode where they decorated outdoor spaces? so reminiscent.

  1. NWMax said at 10:26 am on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    Every single one of my friends looking for a place in DC wants a terrace, patio, etc, so factoring it into the SF for the unit makes sense to me.

  1. Darlene said at 11:16 am on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    I’ve seen this place and the pictures don’t show off the great use of closet space!!  The extra storage on the patio is a bonus and pleasant to look at.

  1. Peter said at 11:16 am on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    This is a terrific unit, with beautiful outdoor AND indoor features.

  1. Andrea said at 11:17 am on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    Having been inside the condo, I can definitely tell you that, not only is the outdoor space completely amazing, but it is really one of the nicest living spaces I have seen in the city, particularly when it comes to natural light. With two bedrooms (and baths) plus an open living space in the front, it really is a great deal. The patio space really is a bonus as well; perfect for entertaining or just hanging out, and even though it’s on a lower level, it’s completely private. If I had the means, I would buy this place in a heartbeat!

  1. Janson said at 11:27 am on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    Needs a pool.

  1. Julia said at 11:27 am on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    quiet and classy (rather large) nook in the otherwise bustling city. More natural light than most thanks to corner unit, high windows and…that spacious patio!

  1. Terry said at 11:34 am on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    Huge private patio.  Private parking.  So much space to grow and grow into.  Blocks from Target/DC USA to the north and U. Street to the south.  What’s not to love.  The recession didn’t touch this neighborhood.

  1. Melissa said at 11:35 am on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    You have no idea that you are in the city when you are in this condo.  It is like an oasis.

  1. Carolyn said at 11:40 am on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    Gorgeous space!  This is a FIND!  Somebody is going to move quick to get in on this EXCEPTIONALLY BEAUTIFUL HOME.

  1. kate said at 11:55 am on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    Was this on HGTV!?!?  Beautiful.  Love the high ceilings and the LIGHT.  No more dark apartment.

  1. Laurie said at 11:59 am on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    I’ve been in this condo - the open floor plan makes this a spacious and welcoming home! Large windows and patio create a sunny, entertaining atmosphere - great place!

  1. laura said at 12:02 pm on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    Having been in this space, I can say it really doesn’t feel like a basement unit at all. Plenty of natural sunlight. And the closet space is to die for. There’s also a second bedroom (not pictured here) that’s a pretty good size. Not a bad location, either (close to U Street AND Columbia Heights).

  1. Lauren said at 1:07 pm on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    lol, looks like the seller found this post!

  1. Jane Kuhlman said at 1:27 pm on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    Nobody’s mentioned the beautiful bathrooms!
    And I don’t like basements—but never felt as
    though I was in one.  The light is exceptional!

  1. Ed Calvert said at 1:40 pm on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    This place ROCKS!! The patio is awesome—hurry it won’t last long…

  1. Jamie Kaye said at 1:44 pm on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    I love this place!  I can see having friends over…drinks and a great meal!  NIce colors inside!

  1. JD said at 2:22 pm on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    Has it been on HGTV no, but they did just film an episode of real estate intervention in that building last week, where i believe this is the comparable unit for an upcoming show.

  1. Steve said at 2:48 pm on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    No basement feel - or look for that matter.  A wonderful oasis to retreat from the day in the city - and it is still in the city.  Off-street parking, corner unit, great light, and a magnificent outdoor space.  A great find in the city for sure.

  1. Michelle said at 2:56 pm on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    What an amazing space.  The outdoor terrace is a rare find in the area!  The layout and lighting make this unit so cozy and comfortable.

    What a deal.  If I were moving to D.C. I’d definately buy it!

  1. Jeff said at 3:00 pm on Tuesday July 27, 2010:

    Great space, with a real modern but warm layout and feel, in a upscale building with outdoor living and indoor grace.  What could be better!
