Mount Pleasant Condominiums and Cooperatives

Nestled up against Rock Creek Park in Northwest Washington, DC is the friendly and free-spirted neighborhood of Mount Pleasant. Offering a nice mixture of condominiums, coops, rowhouses, and detached single-family homes, this diverse community has resisted the winds of commercialization, and remains one of the District’s true treasures. Mount Pleasant locals aren’t much interested in becoming the next Adams Morgan or U Street Corridor. That said, there is a terrific town center with coffee shops, restaurants, and other indie businesses.

Condominiums in Mount Pleasant tend to be historic apartment buildings that have been converted to residential use. You won’t find any modern glass and steel high-rises in the neighborhood, and brand-new construction has primarily been limited to boutique developments with a traditional architectural style, such as a row of recently built luxury townhomes in the 1800 block of Monroe Street. For the most part, however, condos and coops in Mount Pleasant are lovely older buildings such as the Argyle, Mitchell Condominiums, Overlook, and Northbrook I and II. There are even some old mansions that have been subdivided into multiple units, such as the Schafer, a three-story property that stood abandoned and neglected for years before being renovated and converted to 12 one and two-bedroom condos.

More About Mount Pleasant Condos, Washington, DC

The Mount Pleasant neighborhood was initially part of an early 18th century English land grant and later became a massive estate. In 1862 the land was sold, and the property east of Piney Branch was subdivided and named Mount Pleasant. Further subdivisions and land acquisitions continued in the late 1800s, along with more residential development after the arrival of the Sixteenth Street streetcar line in 1903. Many of the homes, rowhouses, and multifamily buildings that exist today date back to that busy construction boom in the early 1900s. Some of the condominium buildings mentioned above belong to this period, such as the stately Argyle (1910), Northbrook (1918), and Overlook (1922). This mirrors the development patterns in other neighboring communities such as Adams Morgan to the south and Columbia Heights to the east.

Where Mount Pleasant differs from some other urban communities in Washington, is the steadfast determination by residents to defy over commercialization, or as some describe it, gentrification. It’s a community where mom and pop businesses can still thrive, where locals gather outside sidewalk cafes for weekly music nights, and where conversations still touch on the American Dream. There’s a popular row of restaurants along Mt. Pleasant Street including Purple Patch, Beau Thai, Dos Gringos Café, Elle, Haydees, and many others. Piney Creek Park, and the Smithsonian National Zoo are at the western edge of the neighborhood. For all of its eclectic charm and determination not to change, Mount Pleasant has become one of Washington’s most sought after places for condo shoppers.
