My Notes

Presenting 1824 R Street NW, a beautiful and unique historic urban mansion, in a truly perfect Dupont Circle location. No expense was spared, or detail overlooked in the meticulous 2006 multimillion dollar renovation, in which two historic row houses were completely renovated and then seamlessly combined into what is now one gracious, 12,500 sq foot light filled mansion. One of a kind European architectural antiques have been incorporated throughout the building bestowing a timeless elegance that is truly breathtaking. A 19th century reclaimed French Blonde Barr limestone foyer accented with a hand cut Venetian mosaic medallion and 16th century French limestone fountain greet you just inside the front door. A sweeping grand staircase with stunning trompe l'oeil accents leads you up to the light filled salons above. Wonderfully proportioned entertaining spaces are perfect for fundraisers, conferences and workshops, concerts, exhibits or simply your family and colleagues? enjoyment. The 10,000 square feet of luxury living and/or work space is spread over 5 levels serviced by a hydraulic elevator. As currently configured, the property has 8 bedrooms or grand office suites, 9 full baths and 2 half baths. Five easily accessed off street parking spaces are located at the rear of the property (with the possibility of an additional 5), a rare luxury in this neighborhood. The property is zoned R5 mixed use residential/commercial and was formerly the home of the Embassy of Singapore.
1824 R Street NW may be purchased complete with the stunning art and furnishings collections as seen in the slide show tour or furnishings can be purchased ?a la carte? to suit your specific needs. Bedrooms can be easily converted to grand offices and are all equipped with wired and wireless high speed internet access.

Neighborhood: Dupont Circle

Zillow predicts Dupont Circle home values will decrease 1.8% next year, compared to a 1.6% increase for Washington as a whole. Among Dupont Circle homes, this home is valued 642.1% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 12.6% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Dupont Circle, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 88.4% less than in Washington, and 90.5% lower than the national average. This lower local number could help Dupont Circle home values rise more quickly than other regions in Washington.
