Washington Harbour Condos for Sale | Georgetown
Located at 3030 K Street NW, Washington, DC 20007
Washington Harbour, also sometimes known as the Residences at Washington Harbour, is a very high-end condominium in Washington, DC’s posh Georgetown neighborhood. Like other waterfront properties in the District, these luxury condos for sale can come with some sticker shock, topping out around $6 million.
Delivered in 1984, Washington Harbour was designed by legendary architect Arthur Cotton Moore, a sixth-generation Washingtonian who also renovated the Library of Congress. The seven-story modern complex is home to 35 spacious residences with floorplans ranging from 1,750 to around 2,800 square feet. The mixed-use building also has ground floor retail, including restaurants with outdoor seating overlooking the adjacent Georgetown Harbor with its picturesque boat docks. The Residences at Washington Harbor are located at 3030 K Street, NW, between 31st Street and Thomas Jefferson Street.
These classic city homes feature combinations of hardwood and marble floors, along with high ceilings and from one to three wood burning fireplaces per unit. You can add gourmet kitchens, formal dining rooms, luxurious baths and private outdoor spaces—perfect for viewing the waterfront. Some of the condos even have maid’s quarters.
Residents of this pet-friendly building also enjoy a host of amenities, including staffed front desk, concierge service, parking, a business center, a fitness center and a rooftop swimming pool.
Considered one of DC’s top destinations, Washington Harbour is more than condos for sale. Other key components include top restaurants like Fiola Mare, Farmers Fishers Bakers, Nick’s Riverside Grill, and Orange Anchor. There’s also a boardwalk, planned events, river cruises and DC’s largest outdoor ice rink, open from November to March.
And you thought this was just another Washington condominium! For more information, call Andre Perez at District Partner at Compass, 202-798-3600.
An Idyllic Waterfront Location
Washington Harbour enjoys a prime Georgetown location at the westernmost part of K Street NW. The site is on a peninsula formed by the Potomac River on one side and the confluence of Rock Creek as it branches off from the Potomac and proceeds inland. The first inlet/outlet lock of the old C&O Canal is also at the mouth of the river. Immediately east of Washington Harbour is another luxury condominium named (appropriately enough) The Residences at Harbourside. This development was also built by Arthur Cotton Moore, some 20 years after the completion of Washington Harbour.
There’s boat docks, restaurants and other attractions in the immediate area, a place once consigned to the after effects of industrialization. The land has been largely redeveloped in recent decades, although there are some historical reminders, such as the underground (and strictly off-limits) Georgetown Mole Way Station—the subterranean stop for Washington’s first Metro system, circa 1870.
There are shops, spas and salons at the mixed-use Washington Harbour as well as restaurants such as Nick’s Riverside Grill, Tony and Joe’s Seafood Place, Sequoia and the previously mentioned Farmers Fishers Bakers. A wide promenade wraps around the southern portion of the development at the edge of the Potomac, allowing visitors and residents to enjoy strolling along the river (or to sit at outside tables from the restaurants).
Immediately west of the complex, separated only by 31st Street, is another popular attraction—the Georgetown Waterfront Park. As part of the National Parks Service, this 11-acre site is the result of decades of planning and represents Washington’s commitment to preserving public spaces during an era when so much is taken over by commercial development. Georgetown Waterfront Park has grassy areas, a promenade with cafes, rain gardens and wide terraced steps leading down to the river itself. Continuing west, one comes to Key Bridge as well as boating opportunities at the Key Bridge Boathouse and the Washington Canoe Club.
These are just a few of the many attractions and amenities in Georgetown’s Waterfront district. The number of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues seems endless. Those who enjoy exploring the outdoors might also wish to stroll along the old towpaths at the C&O Canal, or perhaps hike along the Capital Crescent Trail which heads north into Bethesda and beyond.
Transit Options in Georgetown
Residents at Washington Harbour have the convenience of secure underground parking. The complex is bordered by K Street NW (a main drag known for its many lobbying firms and financial institutions) to the north and 31st Street to the west. K Street also merges with other major roadways such as Whitehurst Freeway and Route 66. Plus, the nearby Key Bridge leads across the river to Arlington. In other words, there’s lots of drivable commuter options in addition to all the local roads.
But for those preferring public transportation, the Foggy Bottom-GWU Metro Station is just a few blocks away. Also, Georgetown is celebrated as a very walk-friendly place. It’s also a great place to ride a bike or rollerblade. Quaint cobblestone streets, major roadways and old trails where long-ago colonists once road their horses, Georgetown is a place where then meets now.
