More About the Albemarle, Washington, DC

Given that the Albemarle is more than a century old, and that the condo conversion was also some time ago, you’ll find a fascinating combination of Old World charm and contemporary luxury. Many of the condos have been substantially remodeled by individual owners since the 1978 makeover. Some of the older architectural details that you may find are restored vintage hardwood floors, built-ins, wood-burning fireplaces with glass panel fronts, pocket doors, and deep-set windows. Newer updates can include wide-plank flooring, spa-style bathrooms, and gourmet kitchens with all the bells and whistles. Some of the original galley kitchens have had walls or portions of walls removed for a more modern, open appeal.

All residences at the Albemarle have in-unit washers and dryers, as well as additional storage spaces. The building was constructed before automobiles became popular, and as a result, there is not a parking garage. There is an arrangement, however, for assigned parking spaces for some units at the next-door Concorde building. The Albemarle is strolling distance from popular Dupont Circle bakeries, restaurants, bars, and other attractions. Lauriol Plaza, Jolt ‘N Bolt Coffee & Tea House, Vagabond Bar and Kitchen, and Regent Thai are a few of the many places located along nearby 18th Street, and there are countless others sprinkled throughout the neighborhood. The Dupont Circle Metro Station with Red Line service is within walking distance.
