In addition to converting an aging Mount Pleasant mansion into an 12-unit condo project, Community Three Development turned a nearby carriage house into a lofty one-bedroom property.
The developers applied for a variance in order to convert the nearby dwelling into a residence, but the property is particularly relevant given the impending zoning changes that may make it easier for developers to create similar properties around DC.
“We hope that more small accessory buildings in DC can get turned into new residences like this,” Grant Epstein, Community Three’s President, told UrbanTurf.
The property building has a very open floor plan, with a living space downstairs, a bedroom upstairs and no internal walls other than those separating the bathroom and laundry area. A private yard with an footprint almost as large as the home is adjacent to the home, bringing the total square footage of the property to 1,630 square feet, with 890 square feet of interior living area.
