Explore Dupont Circle Luxury Real Estate


Luxury real estate presents itself in several forms in Dupont Circle. There are still some grand old mansions but the larger inventory belongs to those glorious rowhouses in a variety of striking architectural styles, often boasting impressive front bays and exquisite detailing. There are also plenty of condos, from classic old apartment building conversions to newer and more modern developments.

More About Dupont Circle, Washington, DC

Dupont Circle is one of DC’s oldest neighborhoods but was largely undeveloped until the late 1870s and 1880s when some large homes were built along Massachusetts Avenue. Construction picked up after the establishment of the traffic circle, with rowhouses filling in the street grids. You’ll find architectural treasures in a variety of styles including Georgian Revival, Victorian, Queen Anne, Richardsonian Romanesque, and Beaux Arts. Prior to the establishment of the historic district, a number of older buildings were razed in order to make room for newer construction. The overall flavor, however, remains true to the District of Columbia’s formative years.

While Dupont’s facades often reflect the glorious past, the interiors are often updated for today’s luxury lifestyles. Some of the nation’s top architects and interior designers practice their crafts in the DC area, and you’ll find numerous examples of residences that have been remodeled with large, open spaces, chef-style gourmet kitchens, luxe baths, and lovely terraces and other private outdoor spaces. This is one of Washington’s most walkable communities, with boutique shops, independent bookstores, bakeries, yoga studios, art galleries, museums, landmarks, and other places to explore.

The neighborhood is famed for its many top restaurant, running along corridors like 18th Street and Connecticut Avenue, and many points in-between. There’s a lively pub and nightclub scene, along with outdoor activities including Rock Creek Park, next-door Mitchell Park with its summer movie nights, the S Street Park with off leash play for dogs, the Spanish Steps, a Sunday farmers’ market, and of course, the famous Circle itself with its marble fountain and inviting green grass. Public transportation included the Dupont Circle Metro station with red line service.
