The Portsmouth Condos For Sale
A stunning Beaux-Arts structure with twin front bays, the Portsmouth was built in 1908 and more recently converted to condos for sale. It can be found at 1735 New Hampshire Avenue NW, in Washington, DC’s Dupont Circle Historic District. The building is situated between S Street and R Street, just two blocks from the famed circle itself, and is also featured in James Goode’s “Best Addresses” book.
Standing six stories tall, the former apartment building features sculpted detailing along the under-perimeter of its flat roofline, plus classic stone relief on the front bays. Enter the grand marble foyer, with original terrazzo tile and tall antique floor lamps, and you might be fooled into thinking you’ve stepped back in time.
The 34 one and two-bedroom residences at the Portsmouth have been impeccably restored and renovated, with much of the early charm faithfully preserved. You’ll find arches and pillars and fun alcoves, along with wood-burning fireplaces in each unit. Beautiful hardwood floors are offset by built-in bookshelves framing deep-set bay windows with window seats.
