The Northumberland - Dupont Best Addresses Building
Posted by Mark Washburn on Thursday, February 2nd, 2012 at 11:56am.
The Northumberland, located at 2039 New Hampshire Avenue NW in the Dupont Circle neighborhood, is featured in James Goode's Best Addresses. Today, the Northumberland remains one of the best-preserved pre-World War I buildings.
Designed by prominent architect Albert Beers and constructed in 1909 by the legendary Harry Wardman, the Northumberland features a unique banded exterior facade. The lobby of the Northumberland featuring 14-foot ceilings and walls adorned with muted-yellow Sienna Marble conveys a level of prestige that is impossible to replicate in newer construction.
Architected in a U configuration, the seven-story Northumberland has 67 units wrapping an interior courtyard. Common building amenities include a 24-hour front desk, roof top deck, common storage and a hospitality suite for guests. The Northumberland opened in 1910 as an apartment building and was converted to a co-op in 1920. The Northumberland has been featured in several movies including the Gardens of Stone directed by Francis Ford Coppola and Broadcast News starring William Hurt.
The location of the Northumberland at the corner of New Hampshire Avenue and V Street offers easy walking access to Dupont Circle, U Street Corridor and Logan. The popular Meridian Hill Park is located a block north of the Northumberland.
Currently, two units are available for sale at the Northumberland including a 500 SF studio listed for $190,000 and a dramatically renovated 2 BR / 2 BA / 1,850 SF unit listed for $995,000. Here is a resource to learn more about and view active Northumberland real estate listings.
