the chastleton cooperative - 1701 16th st nw

If you’re looking for DC housing in the New Year, you need to understand what you’re buying. While some people may use the terms condo and co-op interchangeably, they’re not the same. While many co-ops started in DC in the 1920s, the first DC area co-op started in the late 1800s, well before condos arrived in the city. These days more than 100 co-ops exist in DC.

With a condo, you take on a private unit within a multi-unit property, where ownership extends to common use of certain areas. Co-op owners, meanwhile, don’t actually own their own private residential units, but rather hold a share or interest in the entire building.

Residents collectively own and manage co-ops, but a nonprofit corporation holds the property title. As for the selling

the westchester - 3900 & 4000 cathedral ave nw dc

Elegantly perched high atop one of the city’s highest points, The Westchester presents a grand lifestyle. This historic DC cooperative was originally constructed in the early 1930s. The former home of US congressmen, judges and senators, the property is now part of DC’s Best Addresses.

Originally planned for eight buildings, only five buildings went up. Never the less this still made it Washington’s largest luxury apartment house of its time. Now decades later, more than 500 apartments grace the five buildings of this fully owned cooperative complex.

Elegant residential options here range from studios to four-bedroom units. Some of the graciously designed apartments include such grand features as 12-foot ceilings and sunken living rooms.

the broadmoor - 3601 Connecticut Ave NW

One of Cleveland Park’s most elegant residential buildings, The Broadmoor still evokes luxury living along Connecticut Avenue, nearly 100 years from its beginning. First constructed in the mid-1920s, the building is a distinguished property in the region, and holds an honored spot on Goode’s list of Best Addresses.

Originally designed as a traditional apartment building, The Broadmoor changed over into a co-op around the mid-century mark. In its early years it was described as the home of prominent political leaders, military officers and business executives.

Although the property has changed over the years and decades, the self-managed, L-shaped building still maintains some of its original 1920s-era charm. From the hand-carved accents to the

the westmoreland - 2122 california ave nw dc

A premiere setting and admirable views perhaps equally match the elegance of The Westmoreland. On the list of Goode’s Best Addresses, the Kalorama property first opened up as a rental apartment building around the turn-of-the-century, but it took nearly 50 years before the building was eventually converted into a co-op. To this day it remains one of the most impressive and coveted early apartment houses in the area.

As it did in its early years, the Beaux-arts style property still allows for impressive District views from the luxury of the common rooftop deck or the private residences, themselves. Set right along California Street, the building now houses 60 private residential units, rising up six-stories above the surrounding neighborhood.

the presidential - 1026 16th st nw dc

With a prime location and nearly a century of fashionable charm, The Presidential epitomizes Dupont pre-war elegance. The stylish building dates back to the 1920s, converted over into a co-op in the late 1950s.

While you will still find many unique features and finishes that add plenty of period character to the building, many of the residences of The Presidential have been updated over the years to appeal to a more modern buyer. These days, the Dupont Circle property still blends commercial and residential units into one space, but it’s now filled with even larger private residences formed from combining some of the original apartments into a much larger private space.

Common features of the homes include hardwood flooring, crown molding and
