Property Description

* SOLD with multiple offers in 5 days for $1,120,000 * Historic Dupont Circle Townhouse with Rental Unit

Welcome to this 1885 historic townhouse with stucco and Spanish tile façade in the heart of NW Washington, set far back from the road with secured covered parking for one car.  The interior has been carefully updated to include classic Mediterranean architectural touches while retaining its original detailing.  Eastern and western exposures provide beautiful morning and evening light, which you can enjoy from the numerous tall windows, the beautiful front garden with flowering cherry tree, or the wonderful rear deck with built-in seating.

The main house offers two bedrooms and one-and-a-half baths, chef’s kitchen with custom cherry cabinetry and stainless steel appliances, and beautiful open formal rooms with a wood-burning fireplace and period details.  The lower level has been converted into a legal rental unit with Certificate of Occupancy and front and rear entrances.

This prime location on 16th Street is steps to bus lines and only a few blocks from the Green and Yellow Line Metro lines (U Street), the Red Line Metro (Dupont Circle), downtown Washington DC, and the popular restaurants and shopping of the U Street and 14th Street corridors, Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan, and Logan Circle.
