Modernized Historic in Adams Morgan

Tucked away in a contributing building in the Washington Heights Historic District, this two-bedroom condo was given a modern makeover that makes for a spacious unit with plenty of character.

The living room sits behind two sets of wooden pocket doors on two sides and also has two exposed brick walls. The unit also has a deep walk-in hall closet/pantry and a full-sized washer/dryer.

Two-Bedroom with Built-Ins, Nooks and Ladders

Over on the other side of Adams Morgan, this bi-level condo unit is one of a few in an otherwise unassuming Victorian-esque bungalow. Oversized windows are spaced out along the open, spacious main living area that has two wood-burning fireplaces on opposite walls, one sitting between floor-to-ceiling inset built-in bookcases and the other adjacent to a rounded bay window with built-in bench. Upstairs, the master bedroom sits under a multi-angled pitched ceiling and the second bedroom has a few angled inset built-ins and a hatch with a drop-down ladder that leads up to a private roof deck. Each bedroom also has an en-suite bath and the unit also includes an off-street parking space.
