Dupont Circle Row Houses are Grand

Affluent and vibrant Dupont Circle’s Historic District is a mostly residential neighborhood extending in all directions from Dupont Circle.  Two types of home styles are popular: palatial mansions and 3-4 story row houses in the Queen Anne and Romanesque Revival styles, primarily built before 1900.  The wide, tree-lined diagonal avenues that intersect Dupont Circle and the brick row houses that line the side streets of the historic district are grand and unique in character.

The fashionable neighborhood of Dupont Circle is occupied by middle-class professionals as well as elite Washingtonians.  The neighborhood is centered around a traffic circle, extending out to Massachusetts Avenue and Connecticut Avenue.  The park located within the circle is maintained by the National Park Service, and features a central water fountain.  The park is a gathering place for chess players and sometimes the location of political rallies.  Numerous embassies are located in historic residences along Massachusetts Avenue.  Other landmarks include the exclusive Cosmos Club and the Phillips Collection, the country’s first museum of modern art.  Dupont Circle is served by the Dupont Circle Metro station on the Red Line in the heart of DC.

Restored Dupont Circle row houses come on the market priced over $1M and can be significantly more depending on size, location, renovation finishes and parking.  At present there are three Dupont Row houses currently listed for sale including 1828 Corcoran Street, a 4 BR/3.5 BA/2,430 SF elegantly renovated row house listed TTR Sotheby's International Realty for $1.399M.
