Georgetown Condos For Sale
With its historic Potomac River location, Georgetown is one of Washington, DC’s most popular neighborhoods. The collection of grand old homes, brick row houses and luxury condos for sale is memorable all by itself. It’s also a place with waterfront parks, high-end retail boutiques, art galleries and fabulous restaurants.
Additionally, Georgetown is a college town, home to the famed Georgetown University. Throw in its location—conveniently close to the White House, Congress, the World Bank and numerous foreign embassies—and it’s easy to see why this is a premiere living location for so many Washington professionals.
Georgetown is so old that it predates the District by 40 years. It was first established by the Province of Maryland as an integral shipping port for tobacco and other goods. The Old Stone House, built in 1765, is reported to be the oldest standing and unchanged home in DC. These days, the community offers a wide array of historic architectural styles such as Georgian, Federal, Classical Revival and Queen Anne, as well as mid-century types and more contemporary designs as well.
Traditional townhouses make up a large portion of the housing in Georgetown. You’ll also find low-rise, mid-rise and high-rise condominium buildings. Among the best known are 3303 Water Street, the Residences at Ritz Carlton Georgetown, The Papermill, Wormley School, Flour Mill, Washington Harbour and The Observatory of Georgetown.
Surrounding communities include Foggy Bottom to the southeast (with its Foggy Bottom-GWU Metro), Dupont Circle to the east and the Palisades to the west. The exclusive gated Hillandale community is also inside the Georgetown neighborhood.
