How many Washingtonians can claim that General Douglas MacArthur used to live in their building?  If you are one of the 300 owners at the Chastleton, you can unequivocally answer yes!  While sharing a roof with the ghost of a WWII General doesn't carry as much weight as living with Lady Gaga, Lebron or Anderson Cooper......it is still pretty cool.

The Chastleton is one of Washington DC’s most prominent historic residential structures, and is featured in James Goode’s Best Addresses: A Century of Washington’s Distinguished Apartment Houses.  The ornate Gothic-Revival design features elaborate carved limestone and glazed terra-cotta details. The Chastleton is goth in a beautiful way like Adam Lambert and Liz Vicious, not your scary run-of-the-mill goth

What could be better for a busy Washingtonian than coming home from work and having a friendly place in the building to have an adult beverage and dinner?  While everyone makes fun of Norm on Cheers.....there is something to be said for having a seat at the bar where everyone knows your name!

A trend that is gaining momemtum here in the District is to develop condo buildings with ground floor retail and dining options.  While residential over retail won't work on the leafy streets of Kalorama, it certainly does in the the more urban neighborhoods of the District.  Developments with this configuration are proving very popular with their residents. 

While there are many other developments in the District with ground level dining, here are some
