homes for sale in georgetown

It would be easy to lose count of all the things that make DC’s Georgetown neighborhood amazing. It is exciting and serene at the same time. There is always something happening. There is an abundance of smart people. The architecture is unrelentingly gorgeous--eye-catching and able to blend into the background. The C & O Canal. Georgetown University. Dumbarton Oaks.

As you can probably guess from looking at its construction, the word “renovate” means, at the most basic level, “to make new again” and that is exactly what is happening throughout DC’s Petworth neighborhood. Without going into cringe-worthy metaphors like how the new Safeway on Georgia Ave NW and various new eateries are Petworth’s state-of-the-art kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite worktops. It must be expressed that the gorgeous and thoughtful renovation being done inside Petworth’s rowhomes and condo conversions is a perfect parallel to the renovation of the entire neighborhood.

Especially impressive is the manner in which investors are making Petworth new again. They are not simply tearing down and building

georgetown condos for sale

Washington DC’s Georgetown neighborhood is known primarily for its impeccably preserved connection to the past. You cannot walk down its streets, let alone the C & O Canal, without acknowledging the rich history. It should come as no surprise then that residential space is limited. The neighborhood is comprised primarily of historic homes and vertical construction. If you desire--as so many do--to wake up every day in the District’s oldest and arguably most beautiful neighborhood, you’ll want to have a good look at Georgetown’s condos.

The Georgetown waterfront was dedicated for many years to industry and shipping, and the associated facilities, once obsolete, became prime spots for multi-family dwellings. Some were new builds on the sites of

chevy chase luxury real estate for sale

Luxury real estate abounds in Chevy Chase DC. The neighborhood is among the most expensive places to live in the District of Columbia, offering the provisions of a big city, and the comfort and solace of a sleepy suburb. That said, there’s something automatically luxurious about living in Chevy Chase, no matter what kind of property you’re in.

Luxury real estate is available in Chevy Chase largely because of the available space. This streetcar suburb’s developers platted the community into uncharacteristically large parcels (by DC standards)--perfect for families, hard-working professionals who value a bit of leisure, and those whose working days are behind them.

Well-to-do neighbors take great pride in their community and through regular upkeep

petworth rowhomes for sale

The iconic piece of Petworth real estate is, without doubt, the brick rowhome. The vast majority of rowhomes in Petworth were built in the first half of the 20th century and have shaped not only the physical life of the neighborhood, but the cultural dynamic of the community as well.

An especially notable aspect of rowhomes in Petworth that you are less likely to find in the stately Victorian rowhomes of Georgetown and Capitol Hill, is the presence of a front porch. Additionally, rowhomes in Petworth were designed with working-class families in mind and smack of egalitarianism. Whereas in other neighborhoods congruent architecture is more likely to be found in short bursts, Petworth rowhomes were planned and built by the block. Decades later,

listings near the c & o canal

Anyone who has visited Georgetown to explore or just wander about, has likely stumbled upon the enchanting Chesapeake and Ohio Canal (or C & O for short). It is true that Georgetown’s historic rowhomes, whether brick or timber, help to transport one back to the 18th and 19th centuries, but the C & O Canal, with its stone banks, rough-hewn footpaths, and placid green water offer something less tangible--something majestic. First-time stumblers-by may think for a moment, “I wonder if anyone else knows about this!”

Because of the unique qualities of this relic, it should come as no surprise that listings near the C & O Canal are highly coveted by those with an interest in Georgetown real estate. The absurdly gorgeous penthouse at 2900 K St NW is just

Listings on Georgia Ave NWPhoto Credit: New Communities Initiative

New retail and dining options are making listings on Georgia Ave NW the hottest to be found in DC’s Petworth neighborhood.

Unsurprisingly, the Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro Station (on the Green and Yellow Lines) is a veritable hub of Petworth activity. Just north of the station stands the 2014-renovated Safeway, Yes! Organic Market, and a slew of shops and eateries including Slim’s Diner, Qualia Coffee, and Upshur Street Books. As you amble farther north, Georgia Ave NW transitions to a convenient pattern: blocks of rowhomes, interspersed every so often with a block of businesses, and so on.

As is the case in all of Petworth, the dominant property style among listings on Georgia Ave NW is the brick rowhome

petworth condominium

There’s no denying that Petworth is a neighborhood on the rise. As a result, Petworth real estate is somewhat harder to come by than it was ten years ago. While the neighborhood’s iconic property is the brick rowhome (complete with basement and front porch), they are attached or semi-detached anyway, so why not consider the increasing selection of Petworth condos?

As Petworth’s popularity increases, condos provide an excellent opportunity to reap the neighborhood’s obvious benefits and offerings. A condo is also a great vantage point from which to scope out your future rowhouse or detached property.

Petworth condos come in all shapes and sizes. Many buildings, such as Kennedy Flats and The Christina were purpose-built as condominiums, while

Historic Georgetown Listings

If there is one truth about DC’s Georgetown neighborhood, it’s that it maintains a superior connection to history. As one of the first neighborhoods to be designated as a National Historic District, standards are incredibly high for the preservation of existing structures and the prospect of new builds.

Whether a home in Georgetown is historic really depends upon your definition of the word. Obviously, there are many houses that are the sites of notable events or one-time residences of incredibly notable people. The Forrest-Marbury House at 3350 M St NW hosted President George Washington at a dinner that would conclude with the acquisition of the land necessary to build the District of Columbia. Georgetown historic listings of this sort are quite
