Logan Circle Real Estate, Washington DC
Washington’s high-density Logan Circle neighborhood offers everything from shopping to dining to entertainment to incredible homes for sale. This genuine traffic circle has a residential interior with avenues jutting out from the perimeter like spokes on a wheel—lined with grand old Victorian-style houses resembling medieval castles of old.
The neighborhood dates back to Pierre L’Enfant’s original plan for the District. In the early days it was known as Iowa Circle and during the Civil War was home to Camp Barker—a barracks converted into a camp for freed slaves. At the war’s end, residential development increased, first with Federal-style row houses and then ornate Victorian variations including Gothic, Romanesque Revival, Richardsonian and Second Empire.
Logan’s Circle has seen its share of transition over the years. It was home to Washington’s elite in its early years, a Jazz mecca, a commercial hub, a blighted community and now a vibrant upscale neighborhood with some of the most sought after homes and condos for sale in the District. The inventory isn’t what it was a few years ago, however—the fabulous ornate row houses that were once the market’s bread and butter aren’t quite as plentiful and are a whole lot more expensive.
That’s not to say there aren’t available listings—condos for sale start around $250,000 for small studio and one-bedroom units while at the top end, a ten-bedroom Victorian row house in its entirety recently went on the market for $4.1 million. In between are a range of options including mid-rise Federal-style buildings that have been redeveloped, row houses of varying styles, 1960s International-style condominiums and brand new mixed-use developments—the new DC staple. The neighborhood lies east of another similarly named and equally popular community, Dupont Circle.
It’s not just homes for sale that attract new residents—the neighborhood is just blocks from the White House and has all the amenities you could want, including a Whole Foods, a farmers market, a multitude of restaurants and bars, the Studio Theatre and the circle green itself where residents sip takeout coffee from Peregrine Espresso, play bocce ball or croquet, and put down lawn chairs to watch any number of parades and events.
