Cecil Place which runs a mere block in Georgetown between Grace Street and Water Street ranks at the top of the list of charming DC streets. Adding to the enchantment and reminiscent of San Francisco, the grade of Cecil is very steep and traffic flows one way downhill towards Water Street
The west side of Cecil Place is dominated by the Papermill Condo development and the east side is home to 12 historic row houses. These quaint row houses date back to the late 19th century when Georgetown was an industrial neighborhood and home to many of the District's tradesmen.
Currently, one Cecil Place row house is listed for sale. It features a renovated kitchen, fireplace and a rear courtyard. This three level, 2 BR / 1.5 BA row house is listed for

This venerable east-west corridor which runs from Eckington in the east through Shaw, Logan Circle, Dupont Circle, Georgetown before terminating in the Palisades.

While the Potomac River flows several miles through DC, condos in the District with views of the river are hard to find and command huge price tags.
A significant portion of the Potomac's shoreline borders the Potomac Park and the Tidal Basin where there are no residential neighborhoods. The river does front residential neighborhoods in Foggy Bottom and Georgetown. In Georgetown, the elevated Whitehurst Freeway further obstructs views of the the Potomac from many condos. All this ads up to very few vantage points in the city with residential river views.
Yes, Potomac view are rare, but there are a few buildings with amazing Potomac views. Included in this list are buildings where the majority of the condos have a view, omitted are buildings where…

The WBJ reports on a flaw in the DC Property Assessment Database where properties in the District constructed prior to 1877 are classified by default as being constructed in 1900. 1877 was the first year that building permits were required in the District, so records for properties built earlier than this are not readily available.
Being an analytical type, I wanted to look at some MLS data to validate the extent of this database flaw. Here are the number of active properties listed for sale or rent that were constructed in the years 1898 - 1902:

The results of a recent survey on home design trends by the American Institute of Architects reads like a play book for recent DC new construction. It is refreshing to see several of the trends that we all appreciate about the DC market becoming more prevalent across the nation. Community design trends that are gaining in popularity include infill development, access to public transportation, mixed-use facilities, and dedicated open space.
Here in the District, it is easy to trace the development that followed the extension of Metro lines throughout the city. The vast swaths of vacant land created by the 1968 riots provided a critical mass of infill space that have allowed for neighborhood transforming development in the Columbia Heights and U…
