Sun-Drenched Defined! This stunningly maintained one-bedroom penthouse unit has windows galore (even a lovely skylight) that makes it feel like you’re not in the middle of a city, even though you very much are. No space is wasted in this efficient layout, which boasts stunning hardwood floors, new windows, updated kitchen, in-unit washer/dryer, newer HVAC system, and a tastefully updated bathroom featuring a large shower. This unit feels brand new from head to toe – so move on in and start enjoying everything this neighborhood has to offer. One of the current owners favorite parts of this unit was the layout, which makes entertaining easy and comfortable, and was extremely helpful, since the building is so close knit. Book lover? Well, walk down to Kramerbooks, grab as many books as you want, and fill up the unit’s beautiful built-ins, which are best paired with some literary classics. Not in the reading mood? There are plenty of other places to visit, including Bethesda Bagels, Glen’s Garden Market, Sweetgreen, Dupont Farmers’ Market, Emissary (across the street) & Flywheel. Have a four-legged, furry friend? They are not only welcome in the building, but we also highly recommend you check out S St. Dog Park to help your pup run off all their energy.
Explore Dupont Circle and you’ll discover dozens of bistros, bars, boutiques and museums, as well as the vibrant stretch along 17th Street. Every day of the year, laid-back locals and savvy visitors flock to the Dupont Circle fountain to read, people-watch and meet up with others. We highly recommend getting in some time there, too. This cosmopolitan neighborhood offers a little something for everyone. An array of unique shops and exciting restaurants along Connecticut Avenue, one of the busy streets in the neighborhood, is exciting enough to keep you going all day. Art-lovers can gallery hop around for First Friday Dupont or experience America’s first museum of modern art, The Phillips Collection. Globally minded folks should trek down Embassy Row, which starts on Massachusetts Avenue and cuts right through the circle.
As far as food goes, expect that international flavor of embassies to rub off on restaurants. Dupont’s dining spots radiate outward from the central circle and include a diverse mix of marquee restaurants, casual bistros, brunch hot spots and late-night dining options. Check off a Michelin-starred dining experience at Sushi Taro, one of the District’s best Japanese restaurants (Chef Nobu Yamazaki’s kaiseki, or tasting menu, is not to be missed), or sample Southern comfort food with a Nordic twist at Honeysuckle by Hamilton Johnson. A can’t-miss activity in the neighborhood is joining the throngs of locals on Sundays who visit the year-round Dupont Circle farmers’ market (one of our favorite farmers’ markets in the District) in front of the Metro station entrance on Q and 20th streets.
