1940 NEW HAMPSHIRE AVE NW

WASHINGTON | DC

Located in the heart of Dupont Circle at the epicenter of the city and all of its amenities, 1940 New Hampshire Avenue, NW is a modern urban oasis. This end-unit row home offers an airy and contemporary 1,650 square foot open plan with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and two flexible den/office spaces.


The entry opens to a magnificent and sun-flooded open living and dining area, highlighted by a southeastern facing bay window. Modern design and historic features can be found throughout the home, with recessed lighting, exposed brick, floating staircase, and original rosette and fluted trim windows showcasing the thoughtful and impeccable style of the home.


The open living and dining space is airy and spacious, allowing for hosting both grand events and enjoying cozy evenings relaxing at home. You’ll find a custom built-in fireplace and entertainment center, built-in sound system, soaring 9ft. 4in. ceilings and handsome hardwood floors.


The gourmet kitchen is a delight, with handsome extended height Kraftmaid wood cabinetry, natural stone countertops and a suite of high-end stainless-steel appliances. With plenty of cabinets and countertop space, and a peninsula for informal dining or additional prep space, this kitchen is perfect for both the gourmet chef and the home cook.


Up the custom floating staircase, the entire upper level is an incredible primary suite. Immediately at the top of the stairs is a private sitting room or office space that could be used as a sleeping area. The primary bathroom is fully updated and is highlighted by a large double vanity and a sumptuous frameless glass shower with two shower heads and a shower bench. The spacious front-facing primary bedroom feels miles away from the rest of the home, allowing a quiet and private haven. Oozing with charm, the room features an exposed brick wall, halogen cable lighting and three windows overlooking charming Victorian rowhouses. Double closets offer plentiful storage space.


The lower level, with tall 8ft. ceilings, offers a second suite - another flexible office/den or sitting area can be found directly off of the stairs, as well as the second bedroom and bath. The office/den offers a built-in bookcase, making this the ideal work-from-home space. The second bedroom is spacious and offers a separate outdoor entry. The washer and dryer are also found on this level.

The front yard provides a front patio, ideal for enjoying the weather and dining alfresco, and thoughtfully landscaped with mature plantings. The exterior is completed by a coveted off-street parking pad to the side of the home.


It’s mere steps from everything Dupont Circle has to offer, including a plethora of shops, restaurants, bars, gyms, museums and more. Blocks to both U Street and Dupont Circle Metro Stations, accessing the rest of the city is a breeze. The home is located at the perfect intersection of multiple lively DC neighborhoods including Dupont Circle, U Street Corridor, Adams Morgan, Kalorama and Logan Circle.

Explore Dupont Circle and you’ll discover dozens of bistros, bars, boutiques and museums, as well as the vibrant stretch along 17th Street. Every day of the year, laid-back locals and savvy visitors flock to the Dupont Circle fountain to read, people-watch and meet up with others. We highly recommend getting in some time there, too. This cosmopolitan neighborhood offers a little something for everyone. An array of unique shops and exciting restaurants along Connecticut Avenue, one of the busy streets in the neighborhood, is exciting enough to keep you going all day. Art-lovers can gallery hop around for First Friday Dupont or experience America’s first museum of modern art, The Phillips Collection. Globally minded folks should trek down Embassy Row, which starts on Massachusetts Avenue and cuts right through the circle.


As far as food goes, expect that international flavor of embassies to rub off on restaurants. Dupont’s dining spots radiate outward from the central circle and include a diverse mix of marquee restaurants, casual bistros, brunch hot spots and late-night dining options. Check off a Michelin-starred dining experience at Sushi Taro, one of the District’s best Japanese restaurants (Chef Nobu Yamazaki’s kaiseki, or tasting menu, is not to be missed), or sample Southern comfort food with a Nordic twist at Honeysuckle by Hamilton Johnson. A can’t-miss activity in the neighborhood is joining the throngs of locals on Sundays who visit the year-round Dupont Circle farmers’ market (one of our favorite farmers’ markets in the District) in front of the Metro station entrance on Q and 20th streets.
