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. M Street NW. The Potomac River. Wooden rowhomes. Cobblestones! And the list goes on and on and on.
Georgetown is a place where people want to be. And if you want to be there so bad, why don’t you just live there? Look at you. You’re thinking about it, aren’t you?
Somewhere on the endless list of things that make Georgetown amazing is the selection of beautiful homes for sale. Georgetown hosts a wide range of styles and tastes and despite great variation, it all magically fits together. If you’re looking at condos, you’ll have to decide whether you prefer a slick new build or the beautifully renovated interior of a classic industrial conversion--let’s say a 19th-century warehouse or school. While you may find a little less space on offer in Georgetown condos, their usual proximity to the water results in serious convenience and stunning views.
If you like to stretch your legs a bit more, there are always a handful of well-loved and well-restored rowhomes for sale in Georgetown, such as this handsome property with a bit of a secret garden vibe out back. Brick and frame rowhomes abound throughout the neighborhood and many were the homes of influential figures or the sites of historic happenings. The District of Columbia may not exist today were it not for a deal struck at the Forrest-Marbury House on M Street NW.
If you’re a recent transplant to DC or you haven’t spent much time exploring, you may be surprised to learn that Georgetown hosts a baffling number of mansions. Yes, mansions well within the District line! Check out this modest gorgeous and imaginative 8-bed stunner. Of course, smaller detached homes can be found in the neighborhood as well, such as this relatively modest 5-bed house with a pool. When we think of city living, the tendency is to think of multi-family buildings and attached rowhouses, but in Georgetown you can have the land, comfort, and privacy of suburban life within a few blocks of every urban convenience.
Whatever your tastes, you’re sure to find love among the homes for sale in Georgetown!
