OBSERVATORY CIRCLE

You’re not apt to find a lot of new construction in the Cathedral Heights neighborhood, especially when it comes to condominiums or cooperatives. Instead of glittering new high-rises, there is a nice selection of older buildings that usually fall into two eras, either early or mid-20th century. These are often grand old apartment buildings that were renovated and converted to condominium or co-op usage at some point, a number of which show up in James Goode’s well-known book, “Best Addresses,” chronicling a century of the finest apartment buildings in Washington, DC.

More About Cathedral Heights CONdos, Washington, DC

Cathedral Heights is small in size and population, and as mentioned above, parkland occupies a significant part of the neighborhood. But there is a surprising number of residential buildings in this cozy little community, including the Towers, the Foxhall, 4200 Cathedral, Cathedral West, 3900 Watson Place, 3110 Wisconsin, the Warwick, Alban Towers, the Westchester, and others. In addition to being historical, many of these buildings are quite sizeable, with full service amenities. A case in point is the Westchester, built in 1931 on one of the highest points in the city, with five buildings, over 500 cooperative apartments, 10 acres of park-like grounds including a three-level garden, an on-site grocery store, and a restaurant.

Washington, DC is known for its many unique neighborhoods, from trendy urban corridors in the heart of the city to bucolic suburbs to the north. Cathedral Heights straddles those polar opposites in the best of ways. It’s minutes from downtown, yet possessing its own worldly charm, with walkable sidewalks and the ever popular Glover Archbold Trail for morning strolls, jogging, and dog-walking. Many of the grand old condo and co-op buildings are tucked up against the parkland, and there is also the presence of U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the next-door American University, the Washington Ballet, and of course, the Washington National Cathedral with its English Gothic design and expansive grounds. There are nearby restaurants along the parallel Massachusetts and New Mexico Avenues, along with a local farmers market and lots of community activities. In other words, this little hideaway neighborhood has lots to offer.
