"This modern and newly redone condo resides in one of the most handsome structures in all of Dupont, and on one of the prettiest streets you’ll find. Stroll to the Metro, Glen’s Garden Market, and the myriad shops and restaurants, all at your doorstep!"
Get ready for a modern and recently redone condo on one of the prettiest streets in Dupont Circle. In 2014, the Neighborhood Development Company enlisted Rich Markus Architects to help restore and renovate a distinctive Spanish-style row house on 19th Street that was originally built in 1900. Rechristened as The Dawson, the result saw the preservation of a distinctive white brick exterior with its red roof tiles, and an interior remake with five sleek residences.
The owners of Unit #2 planted a lovely communal front garden with drip irrigation, and installed sitting benches. This quiet and picturesque setting serves as the perfect introduction to the residence itself, with its great room concept and spacious feel. Cocoa Birch hand-scraped five-inch plank floors run throughout the residence. A triple set of original historic bay windows have been custom-fitted with Hunter Douglas shutters, allowing natural light to cast a welcoming glow upon the main living area. Other improvements include a built-in media center, extra storage and coat closet. A delightful kitchen has been opened up, and features original twin windows, gray quartz counters, a mosaic backsplash, KitchenAid appliances, a Bertazzoni gas range, and a large restaurant-style steel sink with a pre-rinse pulldown faucet.
A hallway leads to the two handsomely renovated bedrooms. The owner’s suite with its tray ceiling, custom closet and casement windows, features an en suite bath with marble tile, marble countertop, designer fixtures and large frameless shower. The second bedroom also has a custom built-in closet, as well as abundant light from rear-facing casement windows. A hallway bath offers marble tile and counter, with a soaking tub and shower combo. A frontloading washer/dryer stack is tucked into a hall closet. This home has been lovingly cared for since its redevelopment. On-site parking is included..
The delightful flat at 1816 19th Street NW resides inside one of Washington’s most cherished neighborhoods, steeped in history yet thoroughly modern in its appeal. Strolling along tree-lined sidewalks is a pleasure with a local Walk Score of 97. There are nearby greenspaces such as Mitchell Park and the S Street Dog Park, and the legendary Circle with its white marble fountain is just a few blocks south.
Dupont Circle is typically known as a great place to meet and mingle, especially during warm summer months. And while the current state of affairs dictates a level of social distancing, an increasing number of the neighborhood’s famed bars and restaurants are opening their doors once again, albeit at reduced capacities. You’ll find community favorites such as Lauriol Plaza and Rebellion, just steps from your two-bedroom, two-bath condominium at The Dawson.
The neighborhood’s growth dates back to the late 1800s, as grand mansions were built, followed by more affordable housing such as row houses and apartment buildings. The Dupont of today has evolved into a timeless place where new meets old, and social circles come together in an eclectic and inclusive blend. Simply put, it’s a wonderful place to live.
