The Willison Condominiums - Washington, DC

The Willison is an old 1920s building in Washington DC’s Logan Circle that went through a complete interior renovation around 2002. Once home to 72 residences, there are now just 23 spacious upscale condos. Abdo Development was in charge of the retooling and the results are quite dramatic.

The eight-story brownstone can be found at 1425 Rhode Island Avenue NW between 14th and 15th Streets. That’s right in the midst of Logan Circle’s famed attractions but also near to the downtown area as well. Condos for sale at The Willison (when they actually come to market) are typically priced between $715,000 and $1,250,000.

These delightful city homes have either two bedrooms or one bedroom plus a den, with floor plans ranging from 1,500 to 1,900 square feet. An interesting by-product of tearing out walls and expanding residences has been elongated living spaces. Every unit also has two full baths, with marble and limestone finishes, spa features and seamless showers.

Wide-plank hardwood floors with warm honey tones go hand-in-hand with open gourmet kitchens featuring Maple cabinets, granite counters and high-end stainless steel appliances. Every unit has a gas log fireplace, and some residents get to enjoy private balconies as well. There’s also a marble lobby, garage parking and extra storage.

While the allure of living in this revamped pet-friendly classic is obvious on its own merits, the location is also a big selling point. The gourmet Fresh Foods grocery is right outside the building’s back door and Whole Foods is just half a block away. Other close-by attractions include Logan Hardware, Vida Fitness, Flow Yoga and the Studio Theatre.

Of course, coffee shops, bars and restaurants are absolute must-haves for DC’s best urban neighborhoods. Residents at the pet-friendly Willison can stroll to Commissary DC, Slipstream, Church Key, the pig and many other top spots. It’s no wonder that these super-sized Washington condos for sale are in such high demand.
