Cathedral Heights

Cathedral Heights, located in the northwestern quadrant of D.C., is as low-profile as a neighborhood gets. It’s a classic in-between community, which provides a breath of fresh air, completely removed from the busy life of downtown. It’s greener than most parts of the city, and residents say the most peculiar part of the neighborhood is the buildings. Much more so than Tenleytown and American University Park, Cathedral Heights boasts a diverse set of architectural marvels, ranging from detached cottages to historic apartment buildings.

The Majestic Giants

Cathedral Heights acquired its name from the Washington National Cathedral, the sixth largest cathedral in the world. The marvelous neo-gothic pearl was in construction for 83 years, from 1903 to 1990, although the architecture closely follows 14th century Gothic style. Nowadays, it’s a popular attraction, attracting hundreds of thousands of tourists each year. Just south of the cathedral you’ll find the more humble St. Alban’s Episcopal, finished in 1854, a marvelous example of stone masonry.

At the very northern tip of Cathedral Heights lies the National Presbyterian Church, a congregation that dates back to the 18th century. It consists of 6 buildings, including the main cathedral, which is the third largest religious center in D.C. The beautiful churches and religious centers, surrounded by parks and walking paths are a major attraction among tourists, and give Cathedral Heights a sense of serenity, a rare find in the capital of the nation.

Living in Cathedral Heights

There is little commerce in Cathedral Heights, and most people choose the neighborhood for the lush greenery and general laid-back feeling. However, unlike other mostly residential areas, Cathedral Heights wasn’t planned out, and it is quite unique in its architecture and street layout. Older apartment buildings like the impressive Westchester, condo high rises such as the Colonnade Condominiums, the occasional row houses, and even some Colonial and Tudor style detached homes are scattered around the neighborhood. All this makes the real estate market in the neighborhood incredibly diverse, offering something to everyone.

Cathedral Heights is popular among educated, family-centered professionals working in top executive positions. Consequently, night life is almost non-existent, and there is very little action on the streets in the evenings. For their shopping and entertainment needs, residents visit the nearby Cleveland Park, and Cathedral Heights remains reserved for unwinding, taking leisurely strolls in the beautiful parks, and being with your loved ones. The neighborhood feels like from another world, and that’s exactly how its residents like it!
