Luxury Living in D.C.’s Dupont Circle Neighborhood

For young professionals ready to truly call D.C. home as they navigate a more revitalized job industry, the move toward stepping away from renting can be extremely enticing in today’s hot real estate market. The same can be said for young families who love the perks of big city living, which include close proximity to work and vast education opportunities for their growing families. But with the stock of actual houses vastly down both here and across the nation, the option of purchasing a condo is appealing to more forward-thinking buyers of the younger generations. And when you factor in things like less upkeep, more modern amenities and often much better location for the price tag, it becomes increasingly clear why Millennials, young couples and professionals are flocking to D.C. to become condo owners.

With these buyers in mind, the next obvious question would be what D.C. neighborhood would best fit their active, sociable urban lifestyle. And one popular answer from an ever-growing number of satisfied D.C. condo buyers would be the hip area of Dupont Circle.

Why Are Dupont Circle Condos So Hot?

Like many of D.C.’s finest areas, Dupont Circle boasts a unique and well-balanced blend of historic fixtures and modern innovation. The diverse and progressive neighborhood, centered around the Dupont traffic circle at the intersection of Massachusetts and New Hampshire avenues, has everything from converted Queen Anne and Richardsonian Romanesque rowhouses to sleek, 21st century townhouses.

It’s also beloved by its residents for being a chic, convenient and vastly entertaining neighborhood, outfitted with an array of boutiques, coffeehouses, fine dining establishments and some of the city’s best after-hours haunts. In fact, it’s hip establishments like The Big Hunt and Bar Rouge that bring a fun sophistication to the area that separates it from your less vibrant family and professional areas.

A Slice of Dupont Circle Condo Life

1813 16th StreetSo with all the noise being made over Dupont Circle condos, perhaps it’s best to take a look at current market offerings. And an elegant two bed, two bath condo located at 181316th Street development represents a great blend of many of the neighborhood's defining attributes.

For starters, the nearly 1,000-square-foot property, just placed on the market in early January, features a number of amenities harkening back to its Victorian origins. One can notice a vintage sophistication in its hardwood floors and strong wooden door frames that connect back to the building’s historic status of being built in 1900. This said, the entire building has been updated with modern stylings (including, surprisingly, those hardwood floors). A quaint kitchen and amenities such as a built-in washer-dryer are among the furnishings that give the place its contemporary feel. And with a reserved parking spot and patio in an area where space is a hot commodity, this gem is a very intriguing deal at its current price point of $595,000.
