There are also several extra spaces: the lower level is finished with another kitchen, and out back is a studio or guest house, as well as a deck, a flagstone patio, a vegetable garden and a large yard.

Dupont Circle Rowhouse Renovated in a Contemporary Style

In 2012, this Dupont Circle rowhouse underwent a renovation that brought contemporary style to a historic rowhouse. The floating staircase and open floor plan on the main floor allow light to flow through, and the kitchen cabinets are now flat and minimal. Even with the changes, the home still has some historic flair, like dark wood around doors, windows and four fireplaces. The lower level has a rentable one-bedroom unit.

  • Full Listing: 1731 R Street NW (map)
  • Price: $1.75 million
  • Bedrooms: Four
  • Bathrooms: 4.5
  • Year Built: 1895
  • Listing Agent: Sally McLuckie, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty

    I didn't know that Dupont Circle had houses built in the year 895. It has to be one of the oldest standing houses in the world.
