I Want This House: Washington, D.C.'s Dupont Circle for $3.9M

2030 R St., Washington, D.C.
2030 R St., Washington, D.C.

The main reason I want this Washington, D.C. house -- for the princely sum of $3.9 million -- isn't because it looks like a castle and has five levels and an elevator, but because it's at the center of the city, in the heart of the city's nightlife in Dupont Circle.

The house at 2030 R. St. surely does the job as far as million dollar homes go, but it's location and the chance to live like a king are what attract me to it in the cosmopolitan neighborhood of Dupont Circle.
