Seize the opportunity to live in the heart of Dupont Circle. The perennially popular Imperial House just went through a major renovation with approximately $2 million in improvements. Located a block from the famed Circle itself, this sparkling one-bedroom, one-bath apartment enjoys plenty of light from new floor-to-ceiling windows, bathing the chic mid-century modern parquet floors in a warm glow.
With a welcoming layout and a new front door, the attractive residence also boasts a nicely updated kitchen with black granite counters, black appliances and contrasting blonde cabinets. A generously-sized bedroom has an overhead fan and a large new window, while a totally redone bath has cute white tiles and mosaic accents. A huge walk-in storage closet adds convenience and flexibility. Designed by Donald H. Drayer for Landow & Brandt, the stylish building with its rippled façade was delivered in 1962, enjoying one of the best spots in the city at the intersection of 18th Street NW, Q Street and New Hampshire Avenue.
A great lobby, staffed front desk, a party room, laundry facilities and a terrific roof deck with stunning panoramic views are part of the package, with all utilities covered by the condo fees. The pet-friendly building also has a bike room, plus, there’s a Capital Bikeshare right across the street. You’ll be surrounded the best that Dupont Circle has to offer!
