The Neighborhood

Cathedral Heights apartment residents enjoy beautiful surroundings to call their home

Not only is the National Cathedral’s beautiful architecture and landscaping a focal point of the neighborhood, but the surrounding area features large trees and more spread out buildings than many other DC neighborhoods.

It’s a conveniently located neighborhood giving its community seamless access to a number of nearby areas. Just a short trip to historic Georgetown shopping and dining, and nearby to Cleveland Park, Tenleytown, Glover Park, it gives residents a lot of options for where they work and spend their free time.

Getting around the city is easier than ever in Cathedral Heights, Archer residents can reach the Tenleytown Metro station with just a short drive or bus ride. While it may not have the walkability of areas like Tenleytown or Columbia Heights, many DC residents think it is a welcome trade-off for what the neighborhood offers pleasant aesthetics and the quiet character of the neighborhood are things that many urban dwellers long for. Without being pushed all the way out to the suburbs and dealing with excessive DC traffic, you can still have a charming and neighborly place to call home.

Cathedral Heights isn’t lacking for things to do however, Wisconsin Ave to the East serves the neighborhood as a hub for dining and social activity. You can hop a few blocks over to enjoy the delightful cuisine, cocktails, or a game of pool when the mood strikes.

Overall Cathedral Heights is a gem of a neighborhood that provides a perfect nesting place for those who want a little less of the city, without completely missing out on all the exciting things that DC has to offer. For more information about living in Cathedral Heights, check out the Neighborhood Guide. We’ve provided a closer look at the neighborhood and compiled a list of local resources.
