Mount Pleasant Homes For Sale in Washington DC
One of the oldest neighborhoods in the District of Columbia, Mount Pleasant dates back to 1727 when James Holmead was awarded a grant for a huge swath of land. The land was in turn handed down to his son and named Pleasant Plains. Large parcels that would eventually become separate neighborhoods, were sold off over a period of time and by the Civil War era, what remained of the grant began to take shape in its more modern, developed form. Today, this historic neighborhood is a diverse community with a bright future but like many parts of DC, it went through a period of economic distress before its eventual turnaround.

More Information About Mount Pleasant Homes For Sale in Washington DC
Mount Pleasant is bordered by Rock Creek Park to the west and north, and the neighborhoods of Adams Morgan and Columbia Heights to the south and east. It's a community of distinct areas, from a commercial center with shops and restaurants to nearby condos and apartments to the western section adjacent the park with its hilly streets and charming single-family homes. The architecture reflects the neighborhood's spread out period of development, from an 1850 Italian Villa on Newton Street to turn of the century Classical and Colonial revival homes to Victorian-style row houses. Also in the area are large Italian Renaissance commercial buildings, Dutch Revivals and Tudor-style homes. There are also some large mansions that have been converted to condos, such as a once-grand Victorian known as The Schafer which fell on hard times and has now been divided into 14 units.
Like the range of styles and neighborhoods, homes for sale in Mount Pleasant also enjoys a wide variance of prices. There are still few bank-owned properties and short sales that can be had for well below Zillow's median home value price of $654,400, while typical prices start a little below $300,000 for one-bedroom condos and climb to well over a million for larger homes. While single-family houses in the western part of the neighborhood get the most attention, the larger percentage of properties for sale are condos. There is also a good-sized rental market in the area. Most recently, the DC Office of Planning has been exploring the feasibility of new mixed-use retail and residential developments and analyzing possible effects on existing local businesses.
Mount Pleasant families with school-aged children are served by Bancroft Elementary, the Early Learning Prep School, and Sacred Heart. The closest metro station is in neighboring Columbia Heights to the east and the downtown Washington area is only a short commute away. The Mount Pleasant Library, originally constructed in 1925, was very recently renovated and expanded and the popular Mount Pleasant farmer's market is held on each Saturday from May to December.
