You’d be hard-pressed to find a more unique or more appealing condo community than The Columbia Residences. The former Columbia Hospital for Women was founded in 1866 in Thomas Circle, before moving to its current West End location in 1870. It was rebuilt five years later with a stunning Italianate design from Nathan C. Wyeth. Initially serving wives and widows of Civil War soldiers, the hospital ultimately closed its doors in 2002 and was redeveloped as luxury condominiums.
New to the market in April is Unit #230. Listed at $930,000, the two-bedroom, two-bath residence has 1,254 square feet of living space, 11-foot ceilings and a walk-out patio with lush green lawns. The layout is open and sunny, with hardwood floors throughout the living areas and kitchen, and cream carpets in the bedrooms. The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet and a large en-suite bath with marble twin-sink vanity.
Unit #424 listed in April with a $675,000 price tag. The one-bedroom, one bath apartment with 822 square feet of space has lots of improvements, with ashy-gray hardwood floors, a gourmet kitchen with dark granite counters and a superb frameless shower in the bath. Also notable is the loft-style bedroom with an entire wall of built-in closet space. A private balcony adds to the fun.
Also new in April is Unit #521 with one bedroom, one bath, a den loft and 850 square feet of interior space. Offered at $649,000, the apartment is bright and airy with high ceilings and gleaming blonde hardwood floors in the living areas, an open gourmet kitchen and a den. The spacious bedroom is carpeted, and has a sliding frosted glass and wood door. With a walk-in closet, private balcony, washer and dryer and a parking space, this place is loaded with appeal.
Unit #233 is new in April as well. Listed at $574,999, the one-bedroom, one-bath condo has 805 square feet of living room and an open office/den off the front foyer. Bamboo floors run throughout the living areas and kitchen with carpet in the bedroom and its hallway. There’s tons of closet space, an in-unit washer and dryer, and a delightful open kitchen. Parking and storage included!
Unit #442 was temporarily taken off the market last month before reactivating again in April. The two-bedroom, two-bath apartment with richly hued hardwood floors is priced at $950,000. The open kitchen features granite countertops, a Viking gas range, Viking wine cooler and SubZero fridge. A large private balcony, a washer/dryer combo, one parking space and a storage unit add to the appeal.
Still available after listing last month is Unit #434 with one bedroom, a den, a dual entry marble bath and 810 square feet of living space. Offered at $599,000, the apartment has lovely hardwood floors throughout the main living areas and den. There’s a balcony off the bedroom, a washer/dryer and an open gourmet kitchen with Viking range, SubZero fridge and a pantry with frosted glass sliding door.
Two apartments listed in April and quickly went into Active Under Contract status, meaning they are pending with contingencies. The first is Unit #242 with two bedrooms, two baths and a 1,107 square foot layout. Priced at $874,900, the ground level residence enjoys a bright and open ambience, blonde hardwood floors and a walkout patio. There’s also a washer/dryer, extra storage and a parking space with Tesla charger.
The other condo that is now pending with contingencies is Unit #520. The one-bedroom, one-bath residence has a bonus loft den and 810 square feet of living space. Priced at $655,000, the upper-level apartment in one of the original historic buildings is loaded with architectural charm. A loft den, open gourmet kitchen, high ceilings, sliding bedroom door and a marble bath add to the appeal.
Unit #240 has been withdrawn. The three-bedroom, 2.5-bath ground floor apartment with nearly 2,000 square feet of living space, had been reduced to $1,575,000 before being taken off the market at the very end of April. We will keep tabs on this handsome residence.
There were no closings in April.
