This unit is located in one of Kalorama’s numerous high rise buildings surrounded by trees and green space. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle, this area is not far from Adams Morgan restaurants and bars, Rock Creek Park, Woodley Park, and (north) Dupont. The Valley Vista condominium is a large building, with 169 units, built in 1928.
Since the beginning of 2016, there have been a total of 89 settlements of studio units that are condo ownership in all of DC. These range from a 264 square foot unit on Irving Street NW in Columbia Heights that sold for $111,000. (list price at $99,900.) to a 600 square foot high rise loft space on New York Ave NW that sold for $399,900. This time last year, there were only 57 studio condos settled to date. Median time on market for studio units in 2016 so far is 16 days, so they tend to move quickly.
In contrast, there have been well over 400 one bedroom condo units settled throughout the city since January 1st 2016, and at least 400 two bedroom condo units sold in NW alone during that time.
