In contrast to the very large home that was recently profiled as a House Porn Edition of Good Deal or Not Revisited (GDoN-R), today’s subject property represents what one might find at the smaller end of the Dupont property spectrum. Of course, being Dupont and all, small does not necessarily equate with inexpensive.
Continues after the jump.
Commenters to the original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post made mention of the proximity of this home to a restaurant known for its outdoor seating, which makes it quite popular on, say, unexpectedly Springlike February days. My office is a block away and I have to say that the accessibility to all kinds of restaurant choices, to Dupont Circle, and, of course, to Metro, is really quite nice. Parking on the weekends? Not so much, but this home does have parking included.
As I was doing some basic research on the area around the home, I found interesting mentions of the large Victorians across the street on this block. Some of these homes are part of a historic district known as the Strivers’ Section. The National Park Service website explains that “the recognition of a special enclave of African American leaders in the area goes back more than 80 years, when it was described by a contemporary writer as the “Strivers’ Section” or the “community of Negro aristocracy.”
