Your home already looks and feels like a stylish and comfortable living space, but no one else can build in all of those little touches that make it uniquely yours. At Cathedral Commons, we ensure that there are stylish features, fantastic amenities, and shops just blocks away from your front door that make it easy to feel at home—but it isn’t really home until you add your unique flair to your space. Here are our tips to making your new space into your own, personal haven!
Find your “spots” in the neighborhood
The first thing you have to do is find your “spots”: your workout spot, your coffee shop, your place to grab a drink, the space where you relax, and your brunch restaurant. All of these types of places are within a short walking distance of Cathedral Commons, making it easy for you to feel like you have everything you need nearby:
The onsite fitness center has a variety of exercise machines. No need to stop by the gym on your way home, when the gym is in your home.
Just around the corner from Cathedral Commons, Hawthorne Homemade offers organic, fresh juices, coffee, and teas. Starbucks will be built onsite, so you can wander down for coffee in your sweatpants if you so desire.
Grab a beer, watch a sports game, or enjoy trivia night at District 2 Bar & Grille. If you’re looking for something a little fancier, quieter, and closer, Barcelona Wine Bar will also be in Cathedral Commons.
Space to relax
If you don’t want to head to your place just yet, Cathedral Commons has resident lounge areas, a library, a residential courtyard, and rooftop terraces where you can catch your breath and recuperate from a busy DC day. You can also unwind in your own personal gardening space. The Newark Street Community Garden is just down the road, and is a lush, tranquil space.
Try La Piquette, a French Bistro with mimosas, quiches, waffles, and more. On a sleepy Sunday morning, it’s just a short walk away.
Everything you need is readily accessible in and around Cathedral Commons, from great restaurants to a fully equipped gym. This means that when you live here, it’s easy to relax and truly feel at home.
