Mount Pleasant Real Estate, Washington DC

Mount Pleasant offers an appealing hybrid mixture of Washington DC real estate for buyers—a mixture of small town and urban sensibilities at prices that are still comparatively reasonable. Located immediately north of ultra-trendy Adams Morgan with green parkland wrapping around the western and northern perimeter, this historic neighborhood offers a nice balance of condos and row houses, and even some spectacular old mansions.

This is one of the oldest communities in the District, dating back to a 1727 land grant and early farming. Known initially as Pleasant Plains, large lots eventually became individual neighborhoods and were subdivided for residential expansion, with unique traits developing from one section to the next. You can find wonderful Colonial Revival single family homes in hilly areas nearest to Rock Creek and Piney Park, as well as a staggering diversity of semi-detached porch front homes, Victorian row houses and apartment buildings—many of which have converted to condos for sale over time.

With local businesses like Logan’s Antique Shop and Each Peach Market (a foodies delight), along with Rock Creek Park and the nearby National Zoo, Mount Pleasant offers a great alternative to some of the more overhyped and outpriced DC neighborhoods.
