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 the advantage of walk-in closets and extra storage space. Some units feature ornate, wood-burning fireplaces and updated kitchens, filled with some of the most modern and desired features that new buyers are searching for.

The pet-friendly building also offers a 24-hour staffed desk and doorman, plus nearby parking is available just across the street from The Presidential for added convenience. As well, the building also features a common laundry room, bicycle storage and even some individual storage units.

Found just blocks from the White House, The Presidential has a spot in Goode’s “Best Addresses”, with highly desired residences close to area restaurants, museums and the vibrancy of the K Street corridor. It’s also conveniently close to three Metro stops, making it easy for residents to commute around the rest of the DC area.

Dupont Circle, in particular, is home to various options in art galleries, bookstores, upscale dining and countless retailers. As well, the neighborhood also offers a number of historic properties, including several 19th-century era row houses and the nearly century-long appeal and elegance of The Presidential.
