Mapping Hot Properties Near Dupont's Sign of the Whale

View as Map

Welcome to Bar Crawl Living where we find some worthy domiciles within stumbling distance of a neighborhood hotspot. If there's a place you want us to scope out, leave a comment or send word to our tipline.


Just in time for the end of Whale Week, this week's BCL hits up a fratty, bro bar with the perfect name: Sign of the Whale. On the cusp between Dupont and GWU, what may be one of the city's douchiest watering holes attracts the younger set who want a cheap brew and a bangin' burger. And the nabe around the bar has that same vibe (minus the "cheap" part). The area on it's south side is filled with the (ahem) younger demographic who are looking for a bit of play activities after hitting the books. But everywhere else, it's the older, more professional crowd who are putting down roots. But as our map shows, there are pads for everyone in the vicinity. Cheers!

1. $295,000

1301 20th Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20036

Finding anything under $300K is a good find, but if the condo is steps from Dupont, it qualifies as a great find. The 1 bedroom condo touts it's location (of course) but also the building's amenities, like 24/7 concierge. For those who don't like heights, this condo is not located way above street-level.

2. $315,000

1615 Q Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20036

Oh, the Cairo. Famous for so many reasons, and there's an affordable 1 bedroom on the market. Despite HOAs running at $461, the infamous complex is located in a choice spot. And this unit is on the 8th floor, so the new owner may have quite the sight from the new pad.

3. $375,000

1280 21st Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20036

Who wouldn't want a knight in shining armor waiting at home? At this place, it's on the table. The 1 bedroom abode comes with a regal flair, an open living area, an upgraded kitchen, and a prime location. Rest assured since security issues are handled like they were during King Arthur's Court: with the sword and no questions asked.

4. $624,900

The hardwood floors may be a selling point. The spacious shower could be another. Or maybe it's the ample light streaming in from the large windows. Whatever it is, this 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo insists "You'll love it".

5. $690,000

1813 19th Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20009

Painted like a whimsical doll house, this Victorian row house has charm and appeal. Considered a "very special home", the 2 bedroom condo has classic details and has the good fortune of overlooking a "quiet street" despite being in the heart of Dupont. But even better is the balcony to enjoy the outdoors during warmer times.

6. $724,900

2129 Florida Avenue Northwest
Washington, DC 20009

Here's a five star property for an non-five star price. Complete with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, the condo in The Farnsboro lets light in from 3 sides and packs in a punch with 2 master suites. And the dramatic gallery hallway is sure to impress the guests. For this listing, HOA is $749.

7. $2,350,000

2113 S Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20008

Located at the city's "intersection of elegance and entertainment", the manse in Kalorama has 4 fireplaces, a giraffe, plenty of built-ins, and exposed brick all over the place. Like literally, everywhere. It gives the home a quasi-loft feel to it.

8. $2,999,000

2113 Leroy Place Northwest
Washington, DC 20008

Count them. 1, 2, 3, 4. That's how many levels there are in this Kalorama townhouse. With plenty of "architectural details abound", the 5 bedroom, 5.5 bath elegant stunner has plenty of room to rest weary heads. Or to keep the festivities happening with the wet bar.

9. $3,750,000

2030 R Street Northwest
Washington, DC 20009

Not enough to do? Looking to tackle a big project? Make sure you have an imagination in spades because it's required for this one. For a few hundred grand under $4M, why not "convert this luxury single family back to multi-family use"? Aside from all the money it will require. And the time. And hassles. And heartache...
