1101 L St Nw #605
The stately Beaux Arts Wisteria Mansion condo building was built in 1926 and can be found at 1101 L Street in Washington DC's 20005 zip code. This tall brownstone has an interesting history. The land was originally occupied by the Wisteria House, a home built during the Civil War for a local merchant and named for the wisteria trees that were brought from China. The building was razed in 1924 in order to make way for the Wisteria Mansion Apartments. In 1984, the building was converted to condominiums for sale. The signature trees are still in place.
The craftsmanship and detailing that went into this grand old Washington DC building is quite remarkable. Intricate masonry work with scrolls and flourishes are in evidence all long the concrete facade of the first two stories before giving way to brickwork. Enter the lobby and you'll be treated to an expansive white marble floor with pillars and towering windows. The Wisteria Mansion has 71 units, most of which are studio and one-bedrooms. Recent sales prices have been in the low-to-mid six figure range.
Wisteria Mansion condos may be on the small side, but the layouts are nice and open with large living/dining rooms. Huge windows let in lots of light, bathing the hardwood floors with a warm glow. Most of the galley kitchens have been renovated with granite counters and custom cabinets, with space-efficient appliances. These units have real plaster walls and old-style radiator heaters that are highly functional.
The Wisteria Mansion condos are located right above Massachusetts Avenue in the popular Logan Circle neighborhood. Residents are just a couple blacks from Franklin Park and very close to several Metro stops, including McPherson Square, Mount Vernon Square and Gallery Place-Chinatown. There's an incredible number of great restaurants and nightspots in the immediate vicinity, and the White House itself is just a half-dozen blocks away. This is DC living at its finest.
