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 unit has a wide entry hall that is open to the combined kitchen/dining room around the corner. The kitchen has an expansive island with breakfast bar that also overlooks the dining area, which has a weathered exposed brick accent wall and a glass door beneath a transom window that leads out to a private balcony. 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.
