A Look At Mount Pleasant’s Newest Carriage Home

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. Check out more photos below.

    I'm not sure it's listed yet.. I was only able to find this listing for that building --> http://www.redfin.com/DC/Washington/3324-18th-St-NW-20010/home/10009958 $499,900K for a 1BD, 1BA... Wow. 890SF. Talk about expensive.. If the developer is using the same $/SF, then this carriage house would be about $1M... Which is absolutely insane to me. Though I gotta say, where they got 1600SF from is baffling to me. I calculated 648 SF (18' x 18' x 2 floors). Oh wait, they are counting the sqaure footage of the yard. Heeeeee-larious. In that case, I should claim that my place is actually 1500 SF (900 SF for the condo, and 600 SF for the front yard + roof deck).

    Hi zcf, Thanks for the comment. 1,630 does include the outdoor area. The total interior square footage, the developer tells us, is 890. Shilpi

    http://www.redfin.com/DC/Washington/3324-18th-St-NW-20010/home/10009958 I believe that's the carriage house. Reasonable price. All the photos are stock for the various units listings, would be nice to see the ones for each respective unit. Looks pretty nice though.

    After looking at this unit it was easily discovered that it would be enough space for one person but there was not a lot of unusable space. The washer and dryer combo could cause issues in the long run. Additionally after discussing some general issues with Community Three, it is evident that they are going to push back on concerns.
