Brookland at Catholic University in Northeast Washington is a special place. The streets are lined with trees and its history is recorded through music, art, poetry and education. Brookland celebrates its culture with an almost palpable energy. It flavors the air with a unique and layered sophistication that makes every day feel a new chapter in an exciting story.
But time is running out for you to be a part of this story and live in one of the best luxury townhome communities in Brookland: Portrait Square at Brookland. Only two townhomes are still available at Portrait Square; two four-level homes as special as the community itself.
Imagine living minutes away from The Arts Walk in Brookland, a home for local painters, sculptors, artists and artisans. Spend an afternoon touring their studios and then bring home the perfect piece to your Portrait Square home. Hang your new inspiration on the wall of your home office and add some of the local flavor to your personal gallery.
And speaking of flavors, get ready to make your tastebuds dance as you purchase farm-fresh produce from Monroe Street Market. Carry them into your designer kitchen with the microbe-resistant quartz countertops and high-performance stainless steel appliances, and transform them into dishes that will make your guests sing your praises.
Brookland is also full of restaurants, bistros, pubs, breweries and some of the most authentic pizza you’ll ever find in Washington, D.C. Dine outside at one of these gems or take out some food and eat al fresco on your private rooftop terrace. Nothing beats a delicious meal outside — a culinary sonata under the stars!
Your terrace is also a beautiful place to welcome the beautiful fanfare of sunrise doing yoga or just sipping your favorite coffee. Or plan the day’s bike ride on the Metropolitan Branch Trail which stretches 8 miles from Silver Spring, Maryland to Union Station in D.C., and is just moments from your front door. Plus, if your journeys take you farther, you’re just a few blocks away from the Brookland-CUA Metro station.
For a change of tune, tour the majestic and meditative gardens of Brookland’s Franciscan monastery. Not only can you visit and tour the gardens, you can also learn from local experts the best ways to care and nurture your own plants and flowers (and give back to the community helping care for vegetables that will be donated to local food pantries). Then, use your knowledge to better sustain the greenery back home in your luxurious owner’s suite — your own private sanctuary.
Don’t miss out on this final movement of sales at Portrait Square. Become a part of a special community — invite the rhythm of Brookland into your life and come home to Portrait Square. Call and schedule your private model home tour today.
