Another accessory building-to-accessory dwelling conversion is in the pipeline for DC.
A plan to convert a mechanical building at the Butler House in Dupont Circle cruised to Historic Preservation Review Board approval last month. Architect James Rill designed the planned conversion at 1229 19th Street NW (map), in the Dupont Circle Historic District, which would retrofit the single-story detached building into a one-bedroom carriage house.
The conversion would preserve the existing brick-work, while replacing the french doors and bricking off the door fronting the alley. The existing structure would then become an open concept kitchen/living area, and stairs behind the kitchen would lead up to a room with a closet and en-suite full bath.
The Butler House was named after former owner and Supreme Court Justice Pierce Butler and combines Georgian and Renaissance Revival architectural styles. The mechanical building is thought to have been added in 1925 and has not been used in recent years.
