This week’s Best New Listings includes a loft in the Lovejoy School, a McInturff in Bethesda, and a Wardman-style rowhouse in Petworth.

A Corner Unit with a Loft in Lovejoy

This south- and east-facing corner unit is another residence in the Lovejoy Lofts, a converted turn-of-the-century school near Stanton Park. The loft-like features can be seen throughout with high ceilings, polished concrete floors, color-blocked exposed brick walls, exposed HVAC and sprinklers, and tall windows. The walls of the kitchen area stop below the ceiling and bend to create the adjacent dining nook, while the wall that hosts cabinetry on one side serves as a wall for the main bedroom on the other. The bathroom is self-enclosed and sits beneath a loft space accessible by ladder. The unit also comes with a parking space.
