For a century now the Northumberland has offered a sense of enduring luxury in Dupont Circle. First constructed in the early 1900s, the historic apartment building has served as home to countless prominent members of Washington society throughout the years, including judges, members of Congress, government officials and DC’s wealthy elite.

For history and elegance in Logan Circle, there is nothing quite like The Iowa. First constructed in the early 1900s, the historic condo building offers the enjoyment of modern conveniences, coupled with the appeal of old-world charm and style.

The Iowa was likely named after Iowa Circle, the original name for Logan Circle. Located at the corner of O and 13th streets NW, many condos in The Iowa overlook views of the circle itself.

 tilden gardens - washington dc

Perhaps the greenest complex in town, Tilden Gardens truly lives up to its name. Set in DC’s Cleveland Park neighborhood, the property consists of a full three acres of landscaped gardens alone, joined by six buildings connected via walkways.

Originally constructed in the late 1920s as one of DC’s largest apartment co-ops, Tilden Gardens remains one of the most visually attractive communities in the city today. On the list of Goode’s Best Addresses, the property is more the exception than the norm when it comes to multi-family residences.

While many properties of the same time period were designed to devote a much larger percentage of the land to actual buildings than green space, at Tilden Gardens much of the land was preserved for open space.

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 cathedral avenue co-op - 4101 cathedral ave nw dc

With a prime address in Cathedral Heights, the Cathedral Avenue Cooperative offers up a mix of apartment homes just a short walk from everything. Not far from Washington Cathedral or American University, the co-op sits in a quiet area, yet remains close to the many offerings of the surrounding city.

Found just off Massachusetts and Wisconsin avenues, the property is part of Northwest DC, but it’s also a desirable distance away from many other neighborhoods in the DC area, from downtown to Georgetown and Friendship Heights. It’s also an easy walk from just about everything, from grocery stores and restaurants to local shops.

One of James Goode’s Best Addresses in Washington, The Cathedral building first opened in the early 1960s, later converted

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 iowa - 1325 13th St NW DC

Considered by many as one of the best addresses in DC, The Iowa continues to retain much of the allure it’s held for more than a century. First constructed around the turn-of-the-century, the building was originally named for nearby Iowa Circle, what most of us now refer to as Logan Circle.

Reportedly Iowa Circle came about to honor a Civil War-era general from the State of Iowa. The famous traffic circle stayed with that name until the 1930s. That’s when Congress took up the issue of officially changing over the name to Logan Circle, this time to honor another Civil War general.

These days, though, the prominent landmark also marks a prominent address in DC, notably the address of The Iowa. Converted over from apartments to condos in the late
