Truxton Circle is another name for a former circle that exists within the Bates neighborhood, located on P Street and Florida Avenue in the northwest quadrant of Washington, DC. Ironically, the actual circle, once located at the intersection of North Capitol Street and Florida Avenue, is no more, despite continuing to appear on maps. The community is energized by the popular Bates Area Civic Association and is an appealing option for buyers looking to renovate the solid two-story row houses that dot the landscape.
Proximity to the Metro line and downtown provide further allure. Truxton Circle residents are blocks away from Mount Vernon Square, including CityVista, as well as the Shaw Metro Station at 7th and R Street, NW. Adjoining neighborhoods, Shaw and Bloomingdale are within walking distance, featuring a diverse mix of dining and retail outlets.
The boundaries of Truxton Circle (Bates) include Rhode Island Avenue to the north, P Street, 3rd Street and O Street to the south, Florida Avenue and North Capitol Street to the east, and New Jersey Avenue to the west.
