Bryn Mawr Condos For Sale, Washington DC
While the Washington, DC community known as The Palisades isn’t especially known for condominiums, there are a handful of buildings along MacArthur Boulevard, allowing for affordable home ownership in a very upscale locale. Bryn Mawr is a case in point—twin condominium buildings that were first delivered as apartments in 1967.
The two low-rise brick buildings are located at 4545-4555 MacArthur in DC’s 20007 zip code. Residents are just two blocks inland from the C&O Canal greenbelt which runs alongside the Potomac River. The historic canal is now run by the National Park Service, and is a popular attraction for biking, marathons, picnics and more.
