Description

"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 Market, and the myriad shops and restaurants, all at your doorstep!"

Be prepared for something special with this stylish condo, set inside one of the most handsome structures in Dupont Circle. Built in 1900, The Dawson is part of a row of unique Spanish-style townhouses that stand out among their Victorian siblings.

In 2014, the white brick building was redeveloped under the supervision of Rich Marcus Architects, restoring the façade with its red tile roof, while transforming the interior into five sleek and modern residences. The owners of Unit #2 planted the front communal garden with a drip irrigation system, and installed sitting benches for a quiet and picturesque feel.

Inside, you’ll find two bedrooms, two full baths and a maximized 886 square foot layout. Cocoa Birch hand-scraped five-inch plank floors run throughout, with an open design complemented by restored architectural details. The delightful front bay with original triple windows is augmented by custom-fitted Hunter Douglas shutters for added privacy. The living room with its thick crown molding flows naturally into a generous dining area. Other improvements include a custom built-in media center, additional storage and a coat closet. A walk-in kitchen has been opened up, adding to the feeling of spaciousness. This inviting cook space is filled with natural light from a twin set of 12-pane windows, and features gray quartz counters, a mosaic tile backsplash, white cabinets, a large restaurant-style sink with gooseneck pulldown, plus KitchenAid appliances and a Bertazzoni gas range and oven.

A nicely-sized owner’s suite with a tray ceiling and custom built-in closet gets plenty of light from large, deep-set casement windows. The en suite bath features a marble countertop, designer fixtures and a wonderful frameless shower with marble tile. The second bedroom also has casement windows and a custom built-in closet. The hallway bath has a marble countertop, designer fixtures and a marble tile tub and shower combo. A frontloading washer/dryer stack fits neatly into a hallway closet. The apartment’s rear exit leads out to the on-site parking space that conveys. This home has been meticulously cared for since its 2014 remake.

Located at 1816 19th Street NW, this distinctive row house sits on one of the prettiest blocks in Dupont Circle, between T and S Streets. The local Walk Score of 97 is a true bonus. You can stroll to Mitchell Park, the S Street Dog Park and Glen’s Garden Market, with the iconic Circle just a few blocks south. The centerpiece hub with its white marble fountain is a wonderful place to sit and watch the world go by.

Dupont Circle is a vibrant place with eclectic sensibilities, known for its boutique shops, yoga studios, art galleries and international embassies. There’s also an amazing number of top restaurants in the neighborhood. Among these are Lauriol Plaza and Rebellion, just steps away from The Dawson condominium, which are currently open at fifty-percent capacity.

The neighborhood emerged in the late 1800s, with grand mansions lining the wide diagonal avenues that radiate out from the traffic circle. Turn of the century row houses then filled in the grid, with a variety of notable styles. Today’s Dupont offers a creative and cosmopolitan in-town vibe, with Downtown DC and the National Mall jogging distance away.
