Dupont Circle Condos For Sale
With its incredible historic architecture as well as newer luxury condos for sale, Dupont Circle is one of Washington, DC’s premiere real estate destinations. The neighborhood is named for its famed traffic circle—a hub where Connecticut, New Hampshire and Massachusetts avenues all come together with a lovely green park in the middle.
The circle park itself is a favorite gathering spot for locals, a place to drink coffee, walk the dog or just people watch. At the epicenter is the Dupont Circle Fountain—aka the Rear Admiral Samuel Francis Dupont Memorial Fountain. A bronze statue of the admiral was originally erected in 1884. But the sculptor was subsequently sent to a lunatic asylum in New York City for the “effects of excessive drink.” The Dupont family ultimately replaced the statue with a fountain.

Real Estate at a Glance in Dupont Circle
Antique row houses form a major portion of the Dupont real estate market. Styles include Queen Anne, Richardsonian Romanesque and Beaux Arts, with lots of front bays and spires. The community was once known for its grand detached single-family homes, often in the Second Empire style. While many have been demolished over the years, there are still some remaining examples along the major avenues. You'll also find some newer buildings as well.
Condos for sale and townhouses are the most predominant properties available but there are also some single-family residences. But be prepared for some sticker shock!
