A Luxurious, Spacious Apartment in Dupont—For Less Than $700k

Submit your bids now, because this will be gone very, very soon.

If you’re in the market for a one-bedroom that doesn’t feel like a slightly larger than usual walk-in closet, and you want to live on a small, very DC-ish street, and you’re into things like state-of-the-art appliances, dreamy hardwood floors, and built-in shelving, I think I’ve found an apartment for you.

At 950 square feet, this property at 1775 Corcoran St. (which happens to be adorable and tree-lined) is a generous size for a Dupont apartment. The round living room lends the space some architectual interest, and the tucked-away bookshelves and storage are the perfect spot for a work station or second casual seating arrangement.

The long hallway into the apartment is perfect for showcasing an art collection or could be lined with a set of space-opening mirrors. Plus, it’s the first glimpse of those shiny, elegant herringbone floors, which are not easy to find in a DC apartment. You might not even want a rug…
Although tiny, the galley kitchen is filled with natural light, thanks to a bank of windows, and boasts stainless Miele and SubZero appliances. The granite countertops are a bonus, and you could grow a little herb garden right there on the deep windowsills.
The bedroom is roomy enough that a queen-sized bed plus two night tables doesn’t feel crammed and suffocating (city dwellers, you understand this problem). And two closets (not pictured) offer plenty of storage.
It’s not clear if this patio is private, but either way, it’s a serene little space with lovely views of the gorgeous rowhouses of Corcoran Street.
And what’s not pictured here may prove to be some of this place’s biggest selling points. It has a washer and dryer in the unit, comes with its own garage parking space, a huge storage closet, and a bathroom with limestone flooring and classy subway tiles.
