Almansaya Condo Real Estate
Guide to Almansaya Condo
1409 G Street NE is home to the Almansaya—a lovely condo building notable for its close access to H Street Corridor and its green touches. Built in 1937 and renovated in 2014, the Almansaya is a contemporary brick, three-story project offering just 12 residences. Homes range in a variety of floor plans but they are all distinguished by a number of custom finishes like spacious closets and bedrooms, European-style gourmet kitchens, oversized windows, and bamboo floors. Bathrooms feature the latest in sustainable tiles and fixtures, as well as some high-efficiency toilets. Along with its attractive units, the Almansaya is also popular for its address as it’s within touching distance to an elementary school, green spaces, and some major roads.
The intersection sitting across the street from the development is very important for drivers as it allows access to Maryland Avenue, Benning Road, Bladensburg Road, and Florida Avenue, with the latter taking drivers directly to Gallaudet University. Nearby Maryland Ave offers bus stops along the DC Metro system, but H Street Corridor is more fancied as it also has stops along the DC Streetcar. The streetcar will take you to Union Station and Minnesota Avenue.
Also on H Street are abundance of popular bars and restaurants like Smith Commons. Situated near 13th Street, this bi-level bistro serves amazing New American fare, beer and cocktails in a chic converted-warehouse space. Across the street is Toki Underground—another well-known establishment in the area serving ramen noodle soups, dumplings, sake and cocktails. Other venues located near the Almansaya are Rock & Roll Hotel, the Queen Vic, Sticky Rice, H Street Country Club, and Biergarten Haus—a Bavarian bar with an excellent garden/patio.
