Observatory Circle Real Estate, Washington DC

When it comes to famous addresses in Washington, DC, few are more noteworthy than One Observatory Circle—the official residence of the Vice-President of the United States. This beautiful 33-room Queen Anne-style manor was built in 1893 and originally served as home to high-ranking officials of the adjacent Naval Observatory. And while it’s not coming on the market anytime soon, there are other nice homes for sale nearby. Just don’t try walking your dog on the VP’s lawn. That would not be wise. 

Needless to say, Observatory Circle real estate for sale in pretty exclusive. But, you can still rub shoulders with the secret service and not have to break the bank. Condos for sale typically start in the very low six figure range for studio style units, and are found in a variety of monolithic former apartment buildings constructed in the Art Deco, Tudor or International style. Moving up the ladder you have larger condo units and then finally the luxury detached single-family homes for sale—impressive Tudor, Colonial or Victorian affairs that run well into the millions
