1661 Crescent Place Condos - Washington DC

Located in Adams Morgan just a half-block from Meridian Hill Park is a classic six-story Beaux Arts building known simply by its address, 1661 Crescent Place. Built in 1926 and designed by Joseph Younger, this grand old structure offers all the grace of a time gone by, yet has received many upgrades and offers all the amenities befitting the modern era.

Adams Morgan has been one of the trendiest parts of Washington DC ever since the city began its march toward revitalization back in the 1980s. In those days, the neighborhood was known as the center of DC’s nightlife, with colorful row houses being snapped up and renovated on the cheap.

Today, the community may be just slightly more sedate on weeknights and those low real estate prices seem like a thing of the distant past. Regardless, Adams Morgan is still one of the city’s most recognizable and sought-after places. Built as one of the first cooperatives in the city, 1661 Crescent Place represents the epitome of grandeur and historic style.

A beautiful lobby with doorman, concierge service and 24 hour fully staffed front desk welcomes residents while secure parking provides a convenience that can be rare in DC. There’s also a roof deck with spectacular skyline views.

There are 63 co-op residences in the building with surprisingly large floor plans, ranging from 908 to 2,800 square feet. Hardwood floors, classic multi-pane windows, wood burning fireplaces, thick crown molding, upgraded kitchens, and washers and dryers are just a few of the interior features. Some of the larger units also have private elevator access.  Recent prices have been between around $400,000 and $1.45 million.

This great old structure is on a quiet street, just off 16th Street and across from the historic Meridian International Center. The famed terraced urban Meridian Hill Park just steps away with a Harris Teeter just a block away. Residents will also enjoy a three block stroll to the famed 18th Street Corridor with restaurants like Smoke & Barrel, Muzette, Tryst and so many others.

As for transportation, the U Street and Columbia Heights Metro stations are within walking distance and residents can also drive straight down 16th Street, all the way to the White House! No wonder this address has been so popular with lawmakers and dignitaries over the years.
