Portsmouth Condominiums - Washington DC
In a city known for Beaux Arts architecture, it's no stretch to refer to the Portsmouth as one of the best examples. Built in 1908, this former apartment building stands six stories high and features classic bays and beautiful sculpted detailing along the flat roof line. While many condo developers tend to totally gut old antiques in favor of total modernization, the historic Portsmouth retains much of its original charm and character.
There are 34 residential units at the Portsmouth condominiums in Washington DC, primarily two bedroom and two full baths. List prices are a bit higher than some of the neighboring condominiums, with a recent range from $470,000 to $714,900. You get what you pay for however with timeless elegance, wonderfully shaped bay rooms, lots of windows and beautiful hardwood floors. There's arches and pillars and nooks and some of the units have exposed original brick. Not to be forgotten are wood-burning fireplaces in every unit, updated baths and gourmet kitchens with all the modern amenities.
Step into the lobby at the Portsmouth condos and you'll get an instant impression of an earlier era that catered to Washington's upper class. There's huge beams, lots of tile and marble and tall antique floor lamps that look as if they belong on a turn of the century street corner.
