Property description

Imagine soaring views of the city of Washington, D.C. from the private rooftop terrace of a spacious penthouse conveniently located in the trendy and culture-filled Dupont Circle in-town neighborhood and you begin to understand why this apartment is in constant demand. High ceilings, a spectacularly designed living room, an open kitchen facing broad windows and glass doors leading out to a sumptuous private two-level roof terrace.

All that and more is what you'll experience at this reasonably priced apartment in the heart of Washington, D.C. minutes from the Dupont Circle subway (the famously clean and efficient Metro).

Want to visit the Smithsonian? It's a short 15 minute ride by subway. Eager to see the White House? It's just a 20 minute walk away. And on a sunny day, you might want to walk to the National Mall. Taxis can be flagged at the street corner, or use Uber service from your app.

Fine shops, a rich variety of coffee houses and restaurants many with sidewalk cafes, Whole Foods, Safeway and wonderful bakeries are all within 10 minutes walking distance as is the vibrant life of the 14th Street, U Street and Adams Morgan neighborhoods. Georgetown is a 10 minute taxi ride away, or a 30 minute leisurely walk. Enjoy the tranquility of nearby Italianate Meridian Hill Park (maintained by the National Park Service) with cascading fountains and a view over the city across the Potomac River into Virginia. Also minutes away are the Farmers Markets at Dupont Circle and on 14th and U Streets. All manner of other diversions await you in this historic urban neighborhood.

Elegantly furnished penthouse apartment stretching across two adjacent row houses. Exceptionally large (1000+ SF of living, kitchen, dining) PLUS two bedroom suites with queen-size beds and private baths, PLUS a private 550 SF roof terrace with outdoor seating and fabulous sunrise and sunset views. The apartment is a spectacular contemporary design in a 110 year old Victorian row house, on three floors, with the bedroom suites separated for privacy by the kitchen/dining/living/roof terrace level.

Not allowed are: pets, smoking inside and on terraces, children under 8, and any parties/gatherings without special permission from the owner.

Keywords: Luxury, Penthouse, Row house.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1974

About the owner: I love renovating Victorian townhouses and turning them into contemporary residences for today's living standards.

Why the Owner Chose Dupont Circle:
Less than two miles from the White House and within walking distance to most of the things I like to do in the city. It is in a historic district with a vibrant multi-generational, multi-ethnic population.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
When in residence myself, I like having house guests. My architect created privacy for them and myself (and you) by designing a two level roof terrace, generous living room and dining room/kitchen areas separating two smallish bedroom/bathrooms suites on two different levels.
