After undergoing a meticulous, high-end renovation, a timeless DC townhome located where Shaw and Logan Circle meet is now on the market.
Priced at $1.949 million, 915 French Street NW is a spacious home featuring three bedrooms, two full baths and two half baths, as well as a separate two-bedroom, lower-level rental unit. From the carefully restored facade to the finely finished interiors, developer SQB spared no expense in the renovation.
The roof and windows (now Pella) were replaced and details like original stained glass and the main entry door’s historic lockset were restored. The property now also features a suspended, marine teak wood roof deck with views of the neighborhood, and off-street parking.
The interior is now contemporary with an open floorplan design. Solid oak flooring and recessed lighting are featured throughout, as are solid wood trim and doors. Nearly $50,000 was dedicated to ironwork for an elegant, contemporary stairwell design.
The home’s kitchen boasts Calacatta Laza Quartz countertops, Kitchenaid appliances and a striking ET2 Cyclone LED pendant. Bathrooms feature LED lights, custom mirrors and Porselanosa vanities, fixtures and bathtub.
French Street is a quiet block-long street—tucked between 9th and 10th Streets—just steps from Shaw’s restaurant-heavy 9th Street and the ever-popular 14th Street Corridor. Neighborhood restaurants and cafes include Barcelona Wine Bar, Le Diplomate, Compass Coffee, SUNdeVICH, Convivial and La Jambe, among many others.
With a 20 percent down payment, the mortgage on 915 French Street NW would come to roughly $8,250 (not including taxes and insurance). The property’s spacious lower unit, however, has a certificate of occupancy and is estimated to fetch $3,000 per month in rent, which would generously offset monthly mortgage payments.
