The pooldeck at The Colonnade (cabanas at left)
There are very few pieces of real estate in DC that can be purchased for under $40,000, save for maybe a parking space or a storage unit. But UrbanTurf recently happened upon one of the more interesting property options at this price point.
Once every several years, one of the 21 pool cabanas at The Colonnade condos in Wesley Heights goes on the market, and now there is a rare opportunity to buy a double.
While certainly not an alternative to a studio apartment (and must be purchased by a condo owner at the building), the cabana is a secluded corner unit with two sets of sliding louvered doors that open out to the pool. It can accommodate poolside storage, a wine fridge, maybe a couch and other accoutrements, and offers bit of a getaway for those who don’t want to be on the pool deck all day.
A single cabana at The Colonnade
The double cabana is also the only unit with a full bath rather than just a shower. Available to purchase for any of the owners in the building, the cabana’s current owner is selling in preparation for a move to Florida later this year. More details below.
- Full Listing: 2801 New Mexico Ave NW, #C21-C22 (map)
- Price: $38,000
- Bathrooms: One
- Square Footage: 300
- Listing Agent: Diana Hart, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty
