In 1889, Alfred B. Mullett, the celebrated architect of the Treasury Building’s north wing as well as the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, set his sights on a smaller project: three contiguous rowhomes on Pennsylvania Avenue in what is now DC’s West End.
This year, two of those homes and an accompanying carriage house, were transformed into 2525Penn, a boutique collection of 15 condominiums. Mullett’s historic façades were beautifully preserved—and decorated on one side with a vibrant mural by artist Hamilton Glass—and the interiors were completely renovated into classically modern residences with thoughtful, historic touches.
Built into the footprint of these 19th century buildings, each of the homes at 2525Penn is original and unique. While the residences in the two rowhomes are a mix of one and two bedrooms, the carriage house has two duplexes (a one bedroom and a two bedroom), as well as a single-level two-bedroom home.
You’ll find that the homes at 2525Penn boast amazing natural light thanks to the property’s tall, arched windows and 9.5 to 10-foot ceilings throughout. The interiors are complemented by a color palette that plays well with the historic nature of the building: warm oak flooring, custom two-tone white and oak cabinetry and matte black fixtures. The homes also feature ample recessed lighting and Nordic pendant lighting.
Kitchens feature Bosch appliances (panelized in select homes), Delta Trinsic faucets and white quartz countertops. Bathrooms are gorgeously finished lots of storage, custom wood vanities, white quartz vanity countertops and Ozarke Linear Minimalist Vanity Lights. And all of the homes have full-size, vented washer and dryers, and bedrooms feature custom elfa closets.
2525Penn offers two inviting amenity spaces: a second-floor mezzanine garden and a solar-powered rooftop terrace—with a kitchenette, indoor-outdoor bar and fire pit—that has views of Rosslyn. The building also has an elevator, secure access entry, a package room, bike storage, and a dog washing station. Parking spaces are available for purchase.
2525Penn is in an ideal and long established DC neighborhood, close to all of the best modern conveniences of the West End, Georgetown, and beyond. The property is steps from Trader Joes, and close to both the Foggy Bottom Metro station and the C&O Canal Towpath.
2525Penn will deliver in early this summer and pricing ranges from $599,900 to $1,089,900. For more information, visit the property online at 2525PennDC.com or contact Jennie Mann McWilliams|Ballard at 703-945-6983 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
