On the Market: A Slice of the Cairo in Dupont Can Be Yours for Less Than $300K

Curbed DC
Want to live in D.C.'s first, um, skyscraper? This bright studio perches on a higher floor at The Cairo in Dupont Circle, a circa-1894 building that soars so tall (164 feet and 12 floors) that it helped fuel D.C.'s controversial building-height limit back in the day. Yes, the pad's a mere 373 square feet (did they have micro units in the Victorian era? Discuss.), but the gleaming wood floors, a boutique hotel-worthy modern bathroom and rehabbed kitchen seem designed to max out the space. Plus, the views are primo both in the condo and on the building's famed rooftop, a spacious roost known for 360-degree views of the D.C. skyline. Asking price is $270,000 (below the area's median price of $357,450) and the monthly homeowner's dues are a relatively low $306, so it may go quickly. See photos after the jump. -Jenn Barger
