Mount Pleasant Luxury Real Estate

Mount Pleasant is a true slice of Washington, DC with a wonderful blend of older rowhouses, including some that are semi-detached and even some that are true standalones. You’ll also find all sorts of condo conversions, along with terrific local shops, restaurants, bakeries, and pubs. It’s the kind of place where luxury real estate isn’t at all uncommon, but it comes with an independent spirt and a whole lot of community pride.

Quite often in today’s Washington, upscale living goes hand-in-hand with gentrification, glittering glass and steel condo towers, new mixed-use waterfront developments, or custom built mansions. Mount Pleasant has charted a different course, a place where neighbors chat and socialize, where musicians, artists, and writers find inspiration in authentic surroundings, where business professionals renovate their townhouses on weekends, and where residential streets curve down to nearby Rock Creek Park. Located just north of Adams Morgan and west of Columbia Heights, this charming neighborhood has resisted the tides of over-commercialization. Instead, it maintains a refreshing sense of individualism, all while offering a fascinating menu of luxury real estate.
