"Quaint, Beautiful and Close to the Georgetown Action"
Dumbarton Street NW is a street that is quite beautiful, as most of the residences on this street are older, brick homes, many which date back to the turn of the century. Some of them are quite large and have been remodeled to contain multiple apartments; others are multi-story one-family townhouses. Many of them have built in garages, which is definitely desirable in this part of Washington, D.C., where parking is highly restricted in some of the neighborhoods, including Georgetown, where Dumbarton Street is located. People who live on Dumbarton Street are either retired or have very well-paying jobs, since rents in this area are extremely high and sale prices of homes are beyond the means of the average home buyer. You can find politicians, executive chefs, physicians, lobbyists and other highly paid officials living here. It is a quiet, but friendly street. There are parking restrictions, so unless you have a neighborhood sticker, outside cars are towed if they exceed the time limits posted on signs. This is because parking in the Georgetown area is nearly impossible, and residents don't like their spots taken up by tourists. This is a great place to live if you can afford it, since you are minutes away from the excitement and hustle and bustle of Georgetown and all it has to offer. Enjoy Dumbarton Street NW!
