Penthouse of a Bloomingdale Victorian Conversion

In 2007, the Bloomingdale Victorian where this top-floor listing is located was converted into condos. The unit takes up the top two floors, as well as a rooftop deck. The home was renovated in a modern, higher-end manner, with built-in speakers, a contemporary staircase, a wine cooler, and an extra-long, spa-like bathtub. The address is half a block from the epicenter of Bloomingdale’s ever-growing retail scene.

  • Full listing: 1827 1st Street NW #3 (map)
  • Price: $599,999
  • Bedrooms: Two
  • Bathrooms: Two
  • Square Footage: 1,300

Classic Kalorama Co-op in a Former Restaurant

In the early 1900s, The Altomont was a luxury apartment building that housed 12-room units with servants quarters, and a restaurant on the top floor. Since then, the massive apartments have been chopped up into smaller co-ops, and the restaurant was turned into five separate units. This listing is one of the latter units, and the unusual layout betrays its former life. Angled ceilings, a skinny hallway leading to the kitchen, and a completely mirrored bathroom make this stand out from a typical home. UrbanTurf particularly liked the huge skylight over the living room.

  • Full listing: 1901 Wyoming Ave NW #74 (map)
  • Price: $515,000
  • Bedrooms: One
  • Bathrooms: One
  • Year Built: 1917
  • HOA Fees: $513/month (includes property taxes)
  • Listing Agent: Catherine Czuba, McEnearney Associates
