"Live like an ambassador in this stunning repurposed historical structure. Expansive spaces and original building details abound!"

Jeff Wilson

Chinese Embassy

In 1902 Waddy Wood, renowned Washington, DC architect drew the original plans for what was to become the Imperial Chinese Legation at 2001 19th Street, NW in fashionable Dupont Circle.  The Georgian Revival masterpiece housed the embassy until 1944 and today it is home to 13 unique and architecturally significant condominium residences.  Elegant details of the original structure remain including the grand entry foyer, limestone blocked windows, handsome wood burning fireplaces and the building's main reception hall, now part of one of the units.  Properties here are on one and two levels and are all generous in size going up to almost 2,500 square feet.  Private outdoor spaces are either garden level terraces or private roof decks.  Parking is on site but not covered. There is abundant extra storage in the building's common lower level.
