Details on upgrades:
Home has nearly $50,000 in upgrades in 2020 alone. New central AC system (September 2019) warranties convey (2yr parts and labor, 10yr compressor, 10yr parts covered by Carrier.) New roof (February 2019) Firestone modified bitumen rubber roof with new base sheet, insulation board, drip edge, and rubber installed on flashing walls. Warranties: 7yr warrant on labor, 10yr manufacturer’s warranty. Replacing the 80+ year old boiler heating added space in the living area and bedrooms but freeing up where the baseboard radiators were. Adding tankless water heater allowed for half-bath to be added on the main level. Owner is a classically trained singer (think Julie Andrews) – 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.
