Georgetown, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Washington, DC, served as a major port and commercial center during colonial times because of its prime location on the Potomac River. Today, Georgetown is a vibrant community with upscale shops, bars and restaurants along its cobblestone streets. Many of the homes along the tree-lined streets are 200 year-old restored row houses with beautiful gardens. Housing can be expensive, so most Georgetown University students live on campus or rent apartments uptown or nearby in Virginia.
In terms of price, condominiums may start just shy of $200,000 for efficiency but exceed $4 million for the larger units. Single family homes range from $800,000 to almost $30 million for stately homes of historical significance. The stately mansions (in the prestigious 20007 ZIP code), owned by prominent residents will leave a lasting impression. Note that many of these homes are referred to by name, even after the original residents are long gone, such as the Halcyon house, Katharine Graham house or Evermay.
