Great, you found our starting point. As we head west on Q Street I’ll tell you a little bit about Dumbarton House and the lovely Georgetown neighborhood here. Dumbarton House is owned by the District of Columbia National Society of Colonial Dames, of which I am a member. Dumbarton House, ahead on your right, is a fitting start to a tour of Georgetown real estate. It was built in 1799 and was home to Joseph Nourse (pronounced nurse), the first United States Register of the US Treasury. His career spanned 40 years and six presidential administrations. This impressive history is just a foreshadowing of what's to come! Moving southwest from Dumbarton House toward the Georgetown Waterfront, you'll find a neighborhood full of impressive and richly-appointed luxury homes. Passing through the East Village, now, you're looking at homes that range from Federal-style, brick, detached properties to modern residences discreetly positioned behind classic 19 th century facades. Homes in this area can range from 2 – 12 million dollars and vary in luxury and included amenities. You can generally expect to find properties that include parking for at least two cars although one recent listing was a grand estate that included parking for over 40 cars! If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind, masterfully renovated luxury home with historic overtones, you’ll certainly find one here. With private gardens and multiple fireplaces, many include such splendid amenities as pools, media rooms and elevators. Grandeur abounds.
