The above-grade lower level has a built-in media center/shelving wall adjacent to a painted brick wall with a recessed wood-burning fireplace and cubby. Past the concrete patio, there is a koi pond, lawn space, and terraced steps up to a hot tub and accessory building.

A School-Turned-Loft in the Atlas District
As one of the units converted out of DC's Pierce School a few years ago, this one-bedroom has 26 feet of the school's original chalkboards mounted on the wall beside the entry door, along with extra-tall ceilings, 9 foot-tall windows, and exposed HVAC and conduits. The loft sleeping area is up a series of stairs above a bedroom-sized dressing room/walk-in closet, and the galley kitchen sits above another set of stairs, itself above the washer/dryer. French doors lead into the bathroom, which has exposed brick accents, a standalone clawfoot tub, tiled steps up to the frameless glass shower, and a huge plate glass mirror above double sinks.
