Flour Mill Condos For Sale | Georgetown
Located at 1015 33rd Street NW, Washington, DC 20007
The Flour Mill condos in Georgetown may not be actual antiques, but they are certainly inspired by history. Located at 1015 33rd Street NW, between K Street and the C&O Canal, these luxury residences are named after actual mills that existed in the neighborhood more than 200 years ago. Yes, there were several flour mills along the Potomac River waterfront, along with textile mills, a paper factory, tobacco warehouses and coal yards.
In fact, our subject condominium does not stand alone in its homage to past Georgetown industries. The Paper Mill is another example of luxury condos for sale that offer a nod to the past.
But let’s not get too sidetracked by trivia. The eight-story Flour Mill complex was built in 1985, offering an interesting brick exterior design that features terraces set at angles, resulting in a ripple effect. There are 59 upscale residences here with unusually spacious floor plans, running from 1,018 to 2,281 square feet. There have been a number of updates since the condominium was first delivered. The layouts are fairly traditional, albeit with open living areas.
Also worth noting are the contemporary kitchens, thick crown molding and the aforementioned private terraces which are quite large. Plus, units with rear facings overlook the historic canal while front units have terrific Potomac views. Recent listings have been ranged from the mid-six figures to around $1.35 million.
Residents here enjoy a staffed front lobby and concierge service, and garage parking (the latter for an additional fee). It’s not a place with ton of amenities—no pool or fitness center—but the prime Georgetown location makes up for that. The Flour Mill condos are close to top shops and restaurants, the Waterfront Park and the Foggy Bottom Metro Station with Orange Line, Blue Line and Silver Line service.
Living Along the Georgetown Waterfront
The Flour Mill condo building with its International-style architecture and triangular balconies is ideally located along the riverfront. In fact, residents are just a half block from the Georgetown Waterfront Park. The scenic greenspace is the result of a decades-long effort by locals to transform the waterfront into a national park, thus preserving it from commercialization and over development. The park was completed in two phases, in 2008 and 2011.
Today, Georgetown Waterfront Park features a fountain, a promenade for strolling along the river’s edge, terraced levels leading down to the water, rain gardens and an overlook area as well as large grassy expanses. The Flour Mill condos overlook the park and the river to the west.
The building is also directly adjacent the historic C&O Canal to the east. The canal operated from the mid-1800s until 1924, with wooden boats towed through a series of locks with long ropes tethered to horses who would trot along the old tow paths. The canal was chiefly used to carry coal shipments, and was conceived by George Washington. It’s now a part of the national parks system and a wonderful place to walk, with the paths and locks preserved. There are even canal boat rides on replica boats! Those who enjoy walking and bicycling will also appreciate Capital Crescent Trail which also runs parallel the river, all the way north to Silver Spring.
Residents at Flour Mill are also super close to the Key Bridge Boathouse and the Washington Canoe Club for boating activities on the river. There’s also the myriad of cafes near the water, shops and other neighborhood attractions. Among restaurants within strolling distance are Kintaro, Filomena Ristorante, The Sovereign, Mr. Smith’s of Georgetown and the always awesome Luke’s Lobsters. Those who enjoy live blues and roots rock should check out Gypsy Sally’s! From kayaks and stand-up paddleboards to meals along the water, this is an amazing place to live.
Getting Around Georgetown
Residents at the Flour Mill enjoy secure parking, allowing a level of convenience that isn’t always available in a city where parking can be a luxury item. The Key Bridge is right next-door, leading across the Potomac to the Rosslyn waterfront community which is often referred to as the Gateway to Arlington. Canal Road leads north along the water while Wisconsin Avenue provides another key roadway, leading north to Bethesda and a multitude of trendy shops and restaurants. Of course, Downtown DC and the White House are next-door to the east!
When it comes to public transportation, the Foggy Bottom-GWU Metro with its Orange, Blue and Silver Lines is fairly close, as well as local bus service. But it is also worth noting that Georgetown has an extremely high Walk Score of 96, meaning you just might want to do your in-town travels on foot or bicycle!
