More About Columbia Heights Homes For Sale

Columbia Heights Homes For Sale Arlington VA

Beside the names and proximity of these two communities, if there is one thing that truly unifies them, it is a long-ago real estate developer named Gustave Ring. A successful developer in Washington DC, Ring came up with the idea of large-scale garden-style apartment complexes and built Colonial Village in 1935. It was a huge success and influenced a huge number of similar communities across the country. Ring followed up with the Arlington Village townhouse community in Columbia Heights in 1939 and the smaller scale Walter Reed Gardens (now Commons of Arlington) in 1948, also in Columbia Heights. All three communities are listed with the National Register of Historical Places.

With the success of Gustave Ring's garden-style communities, more sprang up along the Columbia Pike corridor, especially after World War II, with the need for added economical housing. Columbia Heights West followed its namesake's model with such complexes as Columbia Gardens and Columbia Heights Apartments, both built in 1948. Greenbrier Apartments followed in 1949, and Tyroll Hill Apartments in 1950. Construction continued in Columbia Heights West until 1964. A period of condo and cooperative conversions began in both neighborhoods in the early 1970's and some limited construction began again in the 1980's.

Columbia Heights and Columbia Heights West each have their own attractions and their own parks and recreational facilities. The real common denominator is the the number of garden-style complex conversions. Whether apartment-style, duplex or townhouse, these attractive complexes offer competitively-priced housing with the commonality of winding trails, paths, trees and courtyard gardens. The median sales price in Columbia Heights tends to be higher than its counterpart to the west, around $302,000 to $268,000 respectively. Also, it should be noted that while the focus here is on condos, that there are single-family homes available in both communities.
