*Lee represented the Buyers* This gorgeous two-bedroom, two-bath condo with on-site parking is located on one of the prettiest blocks in Dupont Circle. Built in 1900, The Dawson is part of a row of unique Spanish-style townhouses that stand out among their Victorian siblings. In 2014, the building was redeveloped with Rich Marcus Architects, restoring the facade with its red tile roof, while transforming the interior into five sleek residences. The owners of Unit #2 planted the front communal garden with a drip irrigation system, and installed benches for a quiet, picturesque feel. Cocoa Birch hand-scraped five-inch plank floors run throughout, with an open design complemented by restored architectural details, such as a historic triple window bay with custom-fitted Hunter Douglas shutters. A light-filled open kitchen features gray quartz counters, KitchenAid appliances, a restaurant-style sink with gooseneck pulldown and a Bertazzoni gas range, perfect for a first-time cook or experienced chef. Among other improvements in the 886 square foot residence (public tax record shows 795 sq. ft.) is a custom-built media center and extra storage. The owner's suite with tray ceiling, custom closet and twin windows is accompanied by a spacious en-suite marble bath with a stunning frameless shower. The marble hallway bath has a tub and shower combo. A front loading washer/dryer stack nestles inside a closet. A rear exit leads to on-site parking that conveys. Managed by EJF, the property has been lovingly cared for since its remake. You can stroll to Mitchell Park, the S Street Dog Park and Glen's Garden Market, with the iconic Circle and its white marble fountain a few blocks south. The neighborhood is known for its many top restaurants, such as Anju, Pupatella, Lauriol Plaza, Rebellion, Hank's Oyster Bar, Rakuya, Magnolia, Komi and The Pembrook at the Dupont Circle Hotel, which also features Doyle, an incredible mid-century inspired cocktail bar.
