Mount Vernon Square Real Estate, Washington DC

The first thing you should know about Mount Vernon Square (also sometimes referred to as Mount Vernon Triangle) is that there are a ton of available condos for sale. Why the different geometric references? The Mt. Vernon Triangle is the more recent name for a business improvement district that is bordered by the Mt. Vernon Square park at the eastern end, expanding west via a triangular shape, with New York Avenue to the north, New Jersey Ave to the West and Massachusetts Ave to the south as other boundaries.

While many of the buildings are new, you can still find plenty of beautiful historical structures as well. Plus, the neighborhood is just blocks from the U.S. Capitol and White House. During a time of shrinking inventory and skyrocketing prices, this high-density urban community is attracting a swarm of new home buyers.

Mount Vernon Square dates back to 1687 when it was known as Point Royal. Centuries passed and grand buildings were built, and in time, many fell to ruin. The1968 riots led to a lengthy period of neglect and desolation. Eventually, the city used eminent domain to take a portion of the neighborhood, tearing down those neglected, desperate Beaux Arts and Art Deco buildings. But some still remain and have become sought-after homes for sale and of course, vacant lots have become new modernistic mixed-use structures with luxury condos for sale and ground floor retail. The District is in the middle of virulent renewal with Starbucks springing up like caffeinated blades of grass.

Mount Vernon Square Real Estate at a Glance - Washington DC

You won’t find much in the way of detached single-family homes for sale in the neighborhood—this isn’t exactly the suburbs. But Craftsman cottages with tidy little yards aren’t what you come here for. This is one of the few inner-city neighborhoods where quality condos for sale are still relatively affordable and plentiful, and where you can roll out of bed, bypass your gleaming, unused stainless steel chef’s kitchen and hit the street—ready to grab a Grande concoction on the go as you walk to work.

And when your numbingly long day is done you can hit one of a myriad of awesome bars and restaurants just steps from your humble abode, quenching your thirst and soothing your soul before heading upstairs to sink into too-few hours of precious sleep. It’s the good life in Mt. Vernon Square. Contact us today for more info about Mount Vernon real estate for sale
