Renovated Mount Vernon Place condo on the market for $257,000

A rare opportunity to own in the shadow of Mount Vernon's Washington Monument recently became available with an 812-square-foot condominium at 14 East Mount Vernon Place.

The one-bedroom, one-bath condo — unit 203 — is on the market for $257,000. Built in 1852, the updated five-story building offers many attractive amenities of city living. A tree-lined sidewalk, original bricked street and pocket park out front add to the charm.


This second-story unit features cherry hardwood floors throughout, high ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace with a white marble mantle and base, and great views of Mount Vernon Park from the living room and kitchen windows.

The windows have been updated while keeping the integrity of the building's original design. Sunlight floods the unit through the south-facing 8-foot by 6-foot windows.

"It's an ideal location — easily accessible to the (Interstate) 83," said Adam Light, the listing agent with Creig Northrop Team of Long & Foster Real Estate. "And it's surrounded by great restaurants."

The kitchen has refinished cabinetry, tile floors, granite countertops with white and gray tile backsplash. Underneath the kitchen window is room for a small dining table to enjoy views of the outside.

The master bedroom with a ceiling beam is roomy and also features a walk-in closet. Adjacent to the bedroom, in the hallway, is a full bath with tub and shower.

The owner believes the building was used in the filming of the 1987 murder mystery movie, "The Bedroom Window," in which the deed was witnessed from the windows. But the website reports it was 12 Mount Vernon Place next door.

Regardless, the unit offers good views of the park and the monument out front.
