D.C.’s Golden Triangle emerges as a place to live

If you want to live in or near the area known as the Golden Triangle in the District, you’ll be a bit of a pioneer, but that could change if developers convert more office space into residential buildings.

Therese-Marie and Bill Harkey were enjoying a meal in one of their favorite restaurants in the District last fall when they noticed construction underway across the street. For 32 years, they have been living in Montgomery Village near Gaithersburg, all the while thinking that someday they would live in the city.

“My dream was always to move into the city,” said Therese-Marie Harkey, 66. That dream will become a reality in the next month or two when the couple relocates to 1745N, a new condo and townhouse project on the edge of the Golden Triangle, just south of Dupont Circle. Bill Harkey, 68, is a government contractor working at the Federal Aviation Administration. He commutes to its downtown office.

“I never thought we could afford that area. I dismissed it,” Therese-Marie Harkey said. A former teacher, full-time mom and now an artist, she said she was thinking: “Wouldn’t this be a dream to live here?”

They’ve sold their house in Montgomery Village, trading it for a two-bedroom, two-bath condominium in the Modern Flats, a six-story condominium building at 1745N. “It’s enough for the two of us. I am a minimalist. We’re not coming with a lot of stuff.”

Looking ahead to their new life, she said: “What we really love about them is that they’re so hidden. Like a hidden diamond that nobody knows about.”

“I need the sounds of the city,” she added.

Sitting on a tree-lined street at the southern tip of Hill East, this two-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom blue brick rowhouse looks out to the Anacostia River and boasts an updated kitchen graced by a working fireplace. The sellers say Fourth of July fireworks are easy to see from the front of the house, which recently entered the market for $599,999. The address is 1360 L St. SE.

There are wood floors throughout, and in the back, an expansive screened-in porch offers a tranquil place to relax or entertain. It comes with an overhead fan and skylights. Behind the porch, the fenced backyard includes a brick patio, raised garden beds, and a big storage shed. The Potomac Avenue Metro station and bus routes are a little over five minutes away by foot.
