Condos for Sale in Dupont Circle, Washington DC

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital Properties DC AB15253

Like many areas of Washington, Dupont Circle has had more than one life.  It began in 1821 as Pacific Circle but changed to Dupont Circle in 1884 when a bronze statue was erected to Rear Admiral Samuel Francis duPont in recognition of his Civil War service. That statue was replaced in 1921 by a double-tiered white marble fountain, designed by sculptor Daniel Chester French and architect Henry Bacon. Three classical figures, symbolizing the Sea, the Stars and the Wind are carved on the fountain's central shaft.  This is the statue that you see in the background of all the events that take place in Dupont Circle each year, such as the popular snow ball fights or the race at Halloween. 

The Dupont Circle Historic District  was developed in the last quarter of the 19th century and the early years of the 20th century. Two types of housing are most common :palatial mansions and freestanding residences and three-and-four-story rowhouses.  Many of the larger homes have become embassies, such as the Iraqi or Columbian embassies, or private clubs, like the Sulgrave Club.  Some of the rowhouses are still single family homes, but many have been turned into small condo communities with between two and six or eight condos.  The conversion of old rowhomes has resulted in some fascinating architectural details, such as a two bedroom two bath condo on Corcoran that recently went under contract with 22 offers!

 

If you think Dupont Circle is the place that you want to call home, check out these wonderful condos.  They range in price from the low 300s to well over $1M - and you will love living there - regardless of your address!  Then call the Lise Howe Group to make an appointment to find your dream home!  We are at 240-401-5577 or email us at lise@lisehowe.com.

Good morning Lise. Condo sales in the downtown Chicago area have slowed for many reasons but primarily over the issue of real estate taxes. Enjoy your day!

Good morning, Lise... I remember the days when Dupont Circle was not a place you wanted to walk alone in the dark back in the 1960's. How things have changed in the DC area. From what I hear, Dupost Circle is one of the "in" places to be living these days.

Hi Lise - Dupont Circle was my home for a few years while living in the District so reports like this bring back memories.  Not quite Civil War or the 1960s but good memories.

Wayne Martin - have I told you that my daughter is coming to University of Chicago for an MBA - I don't think I will be buying a condo for her - but good to know that the situation for housing may be a little better for tenants - at least I hope so! What are they doing regardin taxes that is tanking the market -
