The Montrose Residences in DC’s Georgetown Sells Out

The Montrose Residences, a historic condominium building in the heart of Washington, DC’s iconic Georgetown neighborhood, has sold out just six months after completion of a three year renovation. Formerly the Henry and Anne Hurt Home for the Blind, The Montrose now houses some of the city’s most elegant new condominium residences.

“We were absolutely thrilled at the success of the Montrose all around,” said Lynn Hackney, President of Urban Pace, the exclusive sales and marketing company for The Montrose Residences. “Considering the swift sales pace and achieving the highest price points in a new building in DC in many years, it was a home run. Argos Development delivered an outstanding building."

Upscale finishes at The Montrose Residences include six-inch plank white oak flooring, recessed lighting, Thermador stainless steel appliances, white Carrara marble countertops, solid cherry and maple cabinetry with under-cabinet lighting, and Electrolux washers and dryers. Luxurious bathrooms feature limestone walls, floors, and shower floors along with Waterworks fixtures. Each residence is allocated two private off-street parking spaces and many feature a private balcony. The upper levels offer expansive views of historic Georgetown and the Potomac River.

The Montrose Residences’ unparalleled location is directly across the street from the historic Dumbarton Oaks mansion and gardens, and a short walk from the recently rebuilt and expanded “social” Safeway on Wisconsin Avenue. Also within easy walking distance are over 500 shops, restaurants, art galleries, hotels, and service establishments, along with the stately homes and tree-lined cobbled streets that give Georgetown its singular sense of place.
