Georgetown | Neighborhood Guide

Georgetown, arguably named for either King George II or for the community's founders, George Beall and George Gordon, is a majestic neighborhood that might leave a visitor wondering, "Did I just step back in time?" Honestly, it's hard to say. While the formidable, stately architecture of the Capitol and the White House connect us to the work-life of early Washington DC, the rowhouses and mansions of Georgetown connect us to its home-life and recreation. Today, thanks to great preservation efforts, residents find that most modern needs are met by original, classic designs, reminding us: "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."

The Neighbors

A delicious soup of people of varying backgrounds with all age groups well-represented

Since more than half of Georgetown's population have earned post-secondary degrees, it comes as no surprise that the neighborhood is brimming with successful professionals. Georgetown University maintains a student body of nearly 20,000, adding even more flavor to the pot. Over the course of Georgetown's long history, many notable people have called it home, including Thomas Jefferson, Francis Scott Key, Alexander Graham Bell, John F. Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor, John Kerry, Bob Woodward, and Madeleine Albright.


The Real Estate Market

Beautifully maintained historic mansions, rowhouses, and industrial conversions

Appropriately for so many highly-educated professionals, the Georgetown market is comprised of some of the most expensive homes in the District. Whether located in the neighborhood's East Village or West Village, residents share a legacy with the original inhabitants of idyllic mansions and humbler rowhouses. New condominiums along with a number of warehouses and mills converted to lofts can be found along the Potomac River and the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal. Luckily the land slopes down toward the water, so even historic views remain intact despite these taller residences.

What to Expect

In a word: Charm

As one of the District's oldest and best-preserved neighborhoods, Georgetown draws a crowd like few others. Established in the mid-18th century, well before the creation of Washington DC, its historic architecture and landmarks have heads turning and looking up all year. Though crowds can be stifling in some parts of the city, Georgetown is well-designed for foot traffic and residents have no trouble navigating their day-to-day needs. Most commercial and tourist activity is confined to the southern part of the neighborhood along the Potomac River, leaving residents in peace.


The Lifestyle

Busy people who know how to relax

Residents of Georgetown look to reap the benefits of their professional diligence, not only in luxurious lodgings, but around the neighborhood in the form of stimulating recreation, current fashion trends, and delectable eats. Georgetown year-rounders have a range of opportunities for land- and water-based exercise and a host of high-end shops and restaurants around the corner.


What Not to Expect

Rapid growth or change: an acknowledgement of Georgetown's already magnificent aesthetic

Georgetown, being so historic and iconic, is likewise very well-preserved. Though new businesses abound along M Street NW, very little architecture has been altered over the years. Any changes that do happen in the area are considered at length, before being set in motion. Georgetown will likely never host a Metro station, and for good reason. When the Metro was conceived there were never plans to incorporate Georgetown, due to the lack of commuting necessity and the proximity to the water which would have made construction especially difficult and costly.
