The Berkely Condominiums

Located at 1440 Columbia Road NW, Washington, DC 20009 | Columbia Heights

The Berkeley fits a certain niche in the Washington, DC real estate market and it fits it quite well. This lovely historic brownstone building with its square front bays sits among an extended row of other timeless structures along Columbia Road between 14th Street and Harvard Court. Built in 1915, the Berkeley served as a mid-rise apartment house for many years until ultimately converting to condominium status in 2009. The redevelopment process remained faithful to the original charm of the building while also opening up key living spaces and adding tasteful touches of modernity and convenience.

Sitting quite literally in the very center of the District, Columbia Heights is a long-established neighborhood that has surged in popularity in recent years. Surrounding communities include Adams Morgan, Mount Pleasant, and the U Street Corridor. Once rural farmland, the area became home to some notable early estates and was more widely developed in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The Berkeley was part of this wave of development, as part of a trend of fashionable apartment houses between 14th and 17th Streets. Other condominiums in the area include the Apex, the Helicopter Factory, the Embassy, Wardman Court, the Celsius, and the Fitz. With gently hilly treelined streets and walkable sidewalks, it’s a neighborhood that combines urban and residential characteristics to great effect.
