Brimming With History & Charm

Georgetown

If there is a neighborhood that best symbolizes Washington, DC’s charm, history, and luxury, it is likely to be Georgetown. This affluent community with its quaint brick sidewalks is composed of two major sections, the East Village, and the West Village. The location could not be more ideal, with the Potomac River on its southern shores and extending to verdant parks and greenbelts in all other directions. A favored place to live for the District’s power brokers and an equally popular destination place for visitors, Georgetown is impressive indeed.

Georgetown Luxury Real Estate

Luxury real estate takes many shapes in forms in a community so old that it predates the founding of DC itself. You’ll find grand old estates, Federal style townhouses, full service mixed-used condominium communities, new modernist structures, and even former schoolhouses that have been converted to hipster lofts. The upscale abodes are sprinkled liberally throughout the area, from the waterfront to quiet streets and cul-de-sacs that butt up against leafy parks. It’s also a neighborhood known for top restaurants, boutique retailers, art museums, and one of the nation’s top campuses, the aptly named Georgetown University.

More About Real Estate in Georgetown, Washington, DC

Georgetown has long been a place where luxury and history exist side-by-side. Once a prominent port for the shipping of tobacco and other goods, the neighborhood dates all the way back to the 1700s when it was considered part of Maryland. Grand old estates that still exist to this day, were often home to wealthy merchants and politicians. Flash forward to the 21st century and you’ll find that Georgetown remains a place where high end real estate is abundant, from some of the oldest homes in the region to more recent construction.

The range of architecture is also striking. Although Federal-style homes are prevalent, both in townhouse style and standalone detached houses, there are also numerous Victorian properties. Georgian design is also present, along with Edwardian mansions, lovely Tudor homes, Greek Revival, Italianate, and the traditional Colonials.

Brick rowhouses are a staple item, often with black shutters and offering a very different flavor than the Beaux Arts and Victorian rowhouses found in other parts of DC. Some of the most sought-after upscale condominiums can be found along the C&O Canal and the waterfront. From ivy-clad estates to modern penthouses with private roof decks, Georgetown is fertile ground for luxury real estate shoppers.
