Wonderful, welcoming house in highly desirable West Dupont – the only single-family home available in the neighborhood and an extremely rare find for less than $1M. Condo alternative with private patio and no HOA fees! (often $600-$1000+/mo in the area) The neighborhood is a hidden gem – incredibly charming, quiet, leafy street, walking distance to everything – minutes to Georgetown, Rock Creek Park, Dupont Circle, Foggy Bottom, Trader Joe~s, great restaurants, and multiple metro lines. Remodeled with major upgrades – over $40K in recent improvements. Additional bathroom with custom, handmade cabinet and granite countertop (unusual to find a house like this with more than one bathroom). New (2019) A/C and heating systems. New roof (2019). Cheery, open kitchen with beautiful granite countertops. The enclosed patio is a private oasis with ivy-covered brick, planters, and built-in seating – a great place to entertain or relax. Out front is a covered, slate patio and a lovely little garden, in addition to the rose bushes and trees that line the street. Remodel created more living space and storage by replacing the old boiler and intrusive baseboard radiators with energy-efficient, low profile heating. Replaced old water heater with new space-saving, energy-efficient tankless water heater. Custom rollout storage under the stairs. Smart WiFi-controlled recessed LED lights in the ceiling throughout the house (control brightness, color temperature, and turn on/off with your phone). New high-end Samsung dryer. Owner is a classically trained singer (think Julie Andrews) so owners added studio-quality sound dampening to end walls of both bedrooms.
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.
